Burt Reynolds Dead At 82

Movie star Burt Reynolds reportedly dead at 82

Burt Reynolds died Thursday morning of a heart attack at a hospital in Florida, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

Reynolds played college football at Florida State University and, after withdrawing from the sports program due to injuries, took a theater class. He revered Spencer Tracy as an early mentor and came to know Johnny Carson, Clint Eastwood, Frank Sinatra and many others. Blake Edwards cast him in the lead of the American remake of The Man Who Loved Women in 1983.

Very early in his TV career, he played Quint on Gunsmoke.

Reynolds rose to the top of the acting world in the 1970s in dramas such as "Deliverance" and action-comedies such as "Smokey And The Bandit" and the "Cannonball Run" series.

Reynolds turned down the roles of Han Solo in Star Wars, astronaut Garrett Breedlove in Terms of Endearment and John McClane in Die Hard.

Reynolds was born in Lansing, Michigan, on February 11, 1936. He also earned People's Choice Awards in 1979, 1982 and 1983 as all-around male entertainer of the year.
