    Just finished up chopping some chicken tonight for stir fry and come back, go to my newsfeed and, wham. Red line news on top is usually not good news. I know he has been in bad health for a bit. Saw a lot of his movies at the Drive in. RIP.

    This is another one of these where it was and wasn't a surprise. You only had to look at pictures of him over the last few years to see his health was declining and he was getting ever so frail. I know many remember him for his film career and rightly so but some of my favourite performances of his was his voice work. He played two great characters in both GTA and Saints Row games. My favourite though was when he voiced Charlie the German Shepherd in All Dogs Go to Heaven, a film I still can't watch to this day without bursting into tears even though I'm well into my 30s.

    Young-Burt-Reynolds II.jpg

    BURT REYNOLDS was one the biggest stars in the 1970s. I liked him best in comedies. He was in a lot of average films, good at the box office but lacking in any substance. He seemed to be more a personality than an actor in that in roles you could often see the real guy underneath. STARTING OVER was IMO one of his best films. Very funny performance. I also thought he was great in BOOGiE NIGHTS for which he was nominated for an Academy Award.

    He seemed to me like a funny person, and a joyful one, and a genuine one. He had a wonderful laugh. He has done many things but I remember fondly when he played God in an episode of "The X-Files". I could tell that Gillian Anderson was *just barely* containing her laughter at his antics. RIP

    RIP, Burt.
    I saw a lot of his movies and remember him being a frequent guest on Carson.
    Seemed like a pretty happy\funny guy.

    Sad news. The first time I saw him was in Dan August, then he was everywhere. Great guy, witty and always charming. RIP Sir.

    He had the greatest laugh. He's definitely going to be missed.

    He was smart in leaving his Son out of the will, but forming a Trust, with pert near everything in it, to him.

    I know he wasn't "well", but man this just makes me sick every time I think about it.
    We made a trip to Hollywood this past August and my daughter couldn't pass this one up:
