Burt Reynolds, one of Hollywood’s most popular leading men during the ’70s and early ’80s in such films as “Deliverance,” “Smokey and the Bandit, “The Longest Yard” and “Semi-Tough,” has died. His rep confirmed that he died Thursday in Jupiter, Fla. He was 82.

Sad to see the news.

My personal favorite role of his was Boogie Nights.

I also liked his TV series Evening Shade.

Reynolds played football at FSU, which is one of my alma maters.

He became a giant star when he was the first nude centerfold for Cosmopolitan magazine, and then shorty thereafter starred in Deliverance, one of my favorite movies. My lifetime hobby has been canoeing, and in my whitewater salad days I paddled the Chattooga River, which was the location of Deliverance.

A big loss to my personal history.

As soon as I heard the news of Burt's passing, I knew what to do next. I rode my bicycle to my nearest Hobby Lobby yesterday. (26 miles one way.) I knew they had a model kit of the '77 Pontiac Firebird used in the movie. I bought and brought the kit home. I'm about to give it a base coat of flat white in a few minutes. (I really wanted a kit of the '66 GTO they had there, but I'll pick one up next month as they had two kits on the shelf compared to one of the '77 Firebird.)
