Burton Leon "Burt" Reynolds (born February 11, 1936) is an American actor, director and producer. He starred in many television and film roles, such as Dan August, Deliverance, The Longest Yard with its 2005 remake Smokey and the Bandit and The Cannonball Run. He also won two Golden Globe Awards, including in Evening Shade for Best Actor in a Television Series Musical or Comedy and in Boogie Nights for Best Supporting Actor – Motion Picture.
Reynolds was a good friend to: His Late Best Friend Dom DeLuise (1933–2009), Inger Stevens, Tammy Wynette, Lucie Arnaz, Adrienne Barbeau, Susan Clark, Sally Field, Lorna Luft, Tawny Little, Pam Seals, Dinah Shore (which garnered particular attention given the fact that she was 20 years his senior) and Chris Evert. Reynolds was married to Judy Carne from 1963 to 1965, and Loni Anderson from 1988 to 1993, with whom he adopted a son, Quinton.
In the late 1970s, Reynolds opened "Burt's Place", a restaurant/nightclub in the Omni International Hotel in the Hotel District of downtown Atlanta, Georgia.
Sports team owner
In 1982, Reynolds became a co-owner of the Tampa Bay Bandits, a professional American football team in the USFL whose nickname was inspired by his Smokey and the Bandit movies and Skoal Bandit which was a primary sponsor for the team which happened because they also sponsored Burt's race team. Reynolds also co-owned a NASCAR Winston Cup team, Mach 1 Racing, with Hal Needham, which ran the #33 Skoal Bandit car with driver Harry Gant.
While filming City Heat, Reynolds was struck in the face with a metal chair, which broke his jaw and left him with temporomandibular joint dysfunction. He lost 30 pounds as a result of having to restrict his eating, and the analgesics he was prescribed for the pain afterwards led to an addiction he needed several years to break. Reynolds underwent back surgery in May 2009 and a quintuple heart bypass in February 2010. He had trouble eating, which caused him to lose weight and led to rumours that he had AIDS.
On August 16, 2011, Merrill Lynch Credit Corporation filed foreclosure papers in Martin County, claiming Reynolds owed US$1.2 million on his Hobe Sound, Florida, home. He owned the Burt Reynolds Ranch, where scenes for Smokey and the Bandit were filmed and once had a petting zoo, until its sale during bankruptcy. In April 2014, the 153-acre rural property was rezoned for residential use so the Palm Beach County school system could sell it to residential developer K. Hovnanian Homes.

But some of the Nohrin, led by would-be conqueror Sedessa, believe in the superiority of their own race and try to take land away from the Lokni. The parents of Delgo, a Lokni, are killed in the resulting conflict. Nohrin King Zahn is horrified by the war and admonishes Sedessa, who then poisons the Queen and almost kills Zahn as well. She is subsequently banished, and her wings are clipped off. Delgo, meanwhile, is raised by Elder Marley, who tries to teach him how to use the power of magical stones. Once Delgo grows up, however, he gives in to his desire for revenge against the Nohrin as a whole. But then he meets Princess Kyla of the Nohrin and develops a tentative friendship with her. When she is kidnapped by Nohrin General Raius, who is actually working for Sedessa, Delgo and his friend Filo are blamed and arrested. In the Nohrin prison, Delgo meets Nohrin General Bogardus, who was forced to illegally gamble with his weapons by Raius, because Bogardus opposed an all out war with the Lokni. Delgo, Filo, and Bogardus escape into some underground caverns and eventually reach Sedessa's stronghold and rescue Kyla. Together they hurry back to try to stop the war from taking place. They are too late, for the war has already begun. Bogardus meanwhile fights and defeats Raius, but is soon after mortally injured.

Instead he finds he has signed on with the "Stratford Players" in the Suffolk village of Stratford St John. He goes to Britain with his career on the downturn and having problems with his daughter who is an aspiring actress on the fringes of the New York theatre world. The local villagers are somewhat of a motley crew and are naturally delighted to have such an - albeit fading - star playing with them. Reynolds plays a typically brash American with no time for manners, and displays an appalling lack of class, considering himself too big for this lowly setting. The transition to humble actor, happy to play with the British actors takes some time, but eventually Reynolds is reconciled with his estranged daughter and accepts that he is no better, in terms of spirit and enthusiasm, than his amateur colleagues.
