Remembering The Life And Career Of Burt Reynolds | MSNBC



Doc Lewis · September 7, 2018 at 6:50 pm

They should've had an older host speak about the loss of Burt Reynolds. They're too young to remember how famous and well liked he was. I'm sure at least one of them has seen a movie of his BUT it's just not the same as someone who's been around longer and would know more about how much of a real shining star he was. He will be deeply missed by those of us that have seen his movies in the theaters or drive-ins. I watched Smokey and the Bandit from the tailgate of a pickup truck. RIP, sir.

Rest – you were a great actor with a long career…Your laugh & smile was contagious………..

My childhood hero! what a sad day!

Doc Lewis · September 7, 2018 at 7:36 pm

OFF TOPIC:  What was your favorite Burt Reynolds' movie?     I loved 3 equally:   The Best Little Wh*rehouse in Texas  AND  The Cannonball Run (and Cannonball Run II)  AND  Smokey and the Bandit               Edit:  Yes, I included CB2 because I love him and Dom together…just like I love Richard Pryor and Gene Wilder together. They make awesome pairs and play well off of each other even when the movies are sub-par.

Grace Rico · September 7, 2018 at 7:36 pm

I'm sure he's an angel now. I loved him in Hitchcock. rip

j valenz · September 7, 2018 at 7:41 pm

He was so popular he was mentioned in Cheech and Chong Mr Burt Reynolds and Mr Dolly Parton

Erica Smith · September 7, 2018 at 7:43 pm

God bless Burt. I grew up watching his 🎥 movies. He was a handsome man. I hope he is with his Lord and Savior.😢😭😪😥💔

RIP Burt(mustache)Reynolds

dan hemmerling · September 7, 2018 at 7:56 pm

I love this guy. Smokey and the Bandit are classics.

Prez 84 · September 7, 2018 at 8:19 pm

Don't know guy and never really cared for him…didn't hate him though…have fun in the afterlife.

TheMultialdo2009 · September 7, 2018 at 8:21 pm

I watched most of his movies and they were all entertaining. I was surprised he didn't take "Murphy's Romance" (with Sally Field). That would have been interesting to film and watch.

TheMultialdo2009 · September 7, 2018 at 8:22 pm

Samoa…He was a much better actor than people gave him credit for and he WILL be missed. Rest in peace Burt!!!

j valenz · September 7, 2018 at 8:23 pm


RedGryyn · September 7, 2018 at 8:46 pm

Right now, Buford T. Justice is in Hot Pursuit, and The Bandit is laughing, as he's chased across the Universe. RIP Bandit.

Chocolate Potato · September 7, 2018 at 8:52 pm

I guess Smokey finally caught the Bandit…..R.I.P

vinnieboibluez · September 7, 2018 at 9:22 pm

The sad thing he was not well health wise and there was no one there to help him get medical help.

Gary McAleer · September 7, 2018 at 9:27 pm

Malone, to me, was his finest role because he was a man of virtue!

Josh Valenzuela · September 7, 2018 at 9:47 pm

R.i.p Burt Reynolds a.k.a Charlie, and The bandit we will always remember you 😥😥😥😥

dafttool · September 7, 2018 at 9:51 pm

Taunter Atwill · September 7, 2018 at 10:26 pm

J. Dogg · September 7, 2018 at 10:36 pm

Rest in peace

Hippie 78 · September 7, 2018 at 10:56 pm

Marco Ceccarelli · September 7, 2018 at 11:10 pm

Kids take a good look at this man. He was one of the true American Badass actors.

Howard Ferguson · September 7, 2018 at 11:13 pm

I'll always remember him in the black TransAm in Smoky and the Bandit. Rest in Peace Mr. Reynolds.

MsMerit40 · September 7, 2018 at 11:15 pm

yoshi542 · September 7, 2018 at 11:33 pm

The Chosen One Illuminati · September 7, 2018 at 11:48 pm

I'll always remember his laugh. His laugh cracked me up.

Edgar Daniels · September 8, 2018 at 12:51 am

I love Burt! I wish my life was as good as his!

The Sky Bandit TheBandit025 · September 8, 2018 at 1:04 am

Well Heaven is getting The Real Smokey and the bandit Part 3

Frank Burns · September 8, 2018 at 1:07 am

It feels like it should be hard to imagine Reynolds as Michael Corleone, but somehow I think he could have pulled it off. Maybe not as well as Pacino, but I can picture it, despite his "Bandit" image, which is pretty much the exact opposite.

roger peet · September 8, 2018 at 1:11 am

Reynolds was an icon ???    He made 40 movies that bombed.   Icons don't do that.

Seriously Malfunctioned · September 8, 2018 at 4:02 am

R. I. P. Burt, a true gentleman "Good 'ol country boy", always had class and style, you will never be forgotten 🙏

Phaedo13 · September 8, 2018 at 4:46 am

greatest mustache ever

Michael Frye · September 8, 2018 at 7:16 am

Will be missed loved him in Cherokee kid and the longest yard

Richard Henry · September 8, 2018 at 7:45 am

Great Sadness😞

JAK 31 · September 8, 2018 at 7:46 am

Hooper was my favorite, Burt as the Hollywood stuntman, I was 8 yrs old at the time, watch that movie so many times, was one of my favorites. Rest In Peace Burt.

IAmSirZak · September 8, 2018 at 8:36 am

A part from the film Best Friends was filmed here in my city of Buffalo NY. When my father was younger the film set was around the block from his house. You will be missed ❤

Sean Burns · September 8, 2018 at 9:29 am
