Actor Burt Reynolds Dead At 82

Burt Reynolds dies at the age of 82

Reynolds, who grew up in Palm Beach County and made it a point to bring A-list stars to Florida, died Thursday at Jupiter Medical Center. US Weekly confirmed the news with a source close to the matter, who said Reynolds' family was by his side at the time.

Burt Reynolds, a staple of machismo-fueled, good ol' boy movies from the 1970s and 1980s and an Emmy victor for his role on TV's Evening Shade, died of a heart attack on Thursday.

The latter film earned him an Academy Award nomination for Best Supporting Actor in 1997.

Two years earlier, the actor underwent heart surgery after his doctor found his arteries were closed during a routine physical.

Other than this, his final role was in Shadow Fighter, while in the last number of years he appeared in The Last Movie Star and Miami Love Affair.

21st September 1972: Film star Burt Reynolds in relaxed mood. However, his promising career as a running back was cut short after he suffered a knee injury from a auto accident. He also developed a reputation as a philanthropist, especially in his home state of Florida, where he helped found the Burt Reynolds Institute for Film and Theatre.

By 1974, Reynolds had hit it big and starred as an ex-football player who landed in prison in the film "The Longest Yard".

Reynolds had been cast as George Spahn in the Quentin Tarantino film Once Upon A Time In Hollywood, due out next July; it is unclear whether his part has been filmed yet. Along the way he turned down such potentially career-making roles as the ex-astronaut in "Terms of Endearment", for which Jack Nicholson won an Oscar.

Reynolds first rose to prominence starring in television series such as "Gunsmoke" and "Dan August". Reynolds eventually paid her $234,794.13 in the divorce.
