    I'm really shocked to hear of Burt Reynold's passing. I think I first saw him in Dan August, the TV series he made in the early 70s. Very sad news. RIP.

    Recerntly heard, his co-star Sally Field, in the Smokey & the Bandit films, who played Frog, were in a real life relationship as Sally & Burt

    Haven't heard much about Burt since the Smokey films

    RIP Burt; you're a legend

    Do you really believe the other side without provocation would launch so many ICBM's, subs and ships knowing that we would have no option to launch as well? It would break our MAD Treaty (Mutually Assured Destruction) not to mention the end of the world as we know it.

    In one of his last roles he played Boss Hogg in the Dukes of Hazzard movie. And James Best who was Sheriff Roscoe in the TV series was in a number of movies with Burt Reynolds, notably "Hooper."

    He was even offered the role of Michael Corleone in "The Godfather," as was Robert Redford. Somehow, I could picture him as Han Solo, but not Bond.
