Burt Reynolds Cause of Death: How Did the Actor Die?

Burt Reynolds

But it's his big screen career that took off in the early 1970s that made Burt Reynolds a star.

"The actor went into cardiac arrest at a hospital in Florida on Thursday, Sept. 6", according to the Reporter. That film, which details the Manson family and their reign of terror over Hollywood, is set to be premiere in 2019.

Several entertainment institutions also honored Reynolds. In 1977's Smokey and the Bandit, Jackie Gleason was Smokey the sheriff, Burt Reynolds was Bandit, and the plot hinged on whether Bandit and a truck-driving pal could blow through Smokey's roadblocks and make the run in 28 hours. Reynolds kept trying to win an Oscar in his later life, with his first nomination coming in 1997 for Boogie Nights.

It was in his Hollywood heyday that Burt boasted an impressive property portfolio, including his famous "Burt Reynolds Ranch", a private jet and a helicopter. He was cast as "Quint Asper" in the popular Gunsmoke series as well as earlier roles in other shows, including Alfred Hitchcock Presents and Perry Mason. Also among the auctioned items was the best supporting actor Golden Globe award Reynolds won for his role in Paul Thomas Anderson's Boogie Nights.

Reynolds was married twice and has one son, Quentin, with ex-wife Loni Anderson. His father was in the military, and the family briefly lived in MI before settling in Florida when Reynolds was 10 years old.

Later the red leather jacket Reynolds wore in Smokey and the Bandit was part of a collection of memorabilia sold off by the actor in 2014 to pay off mortgage debts of a rumoured $1.4 million. And he had a hit TV show in the 1990s with "Evening Shade". Met Burt Reynolds a few years back... so glad I did.

More recently, in 2005 Reynolds starred in the Adam Sandler film The Longest Yard and played Boss Hogg in The Dukes of Hazzard remake.

He would later call Field "the one that got away". After marrying television actress Loni Anderson, Reynolds made a decision to produce and star in the sitcom Evening Shade, which ran on CBS from 1990-94.
