Burt Reynolds has passed away.

Died to Cardiac Arrest after a long time suffering heart problems. He was 82 years old.

Although I am not too familiar with his work, I recognize that he is a legend, so rest in peace indeed:

One of the two most recognizable mustaches in Hollywood.

Most will probably remember him from roles like in "Smokey and the Bandit", but for me, it will be that one episode of "Archer", where he played himself:

Godspeed.

BTW: It looks like Tarantino's "Once upon a time in America"(still filming) might be his last picture.

A legit, old school Hollywood star and one hell of an actor. Will always remember him in Deliverance and Boogie Nights.

I just found out he played Charlie in All Dogs Go To Heaven, I surprised barely anyone brought that up.

The guy always seemed happy to play roles that spoofed or satirised him, which I always take as a sign of someone being a pretty great dude
