Hollywood star Burt Reynolds dies at 82

Burt Reynolds, whose good looks and charm made him one of Hollywood’s most popular actors as he starred in films such as Deliverance, The Longest Yard and Smokey And The Bandit in the 1970s and 1980s, has died at age 82, a spokesman for his Los Angeles agent said on Thursday (Sept 6). 바카라사이트

Reynolds died on Thursday morning at the Jupiter Medical Centre in Florida, The Hollywood Reporter said, citing Reynolds’manager, Erik Kritzer.

At the peak of his career, Reynolds was one of the most bankable actors in the film industry, reeling off a series of box office smashes until a career downturn in the mid-1980s.

He rebounded in 1997 with a nomination for a best supporting actor Academy Award for Boogie Nights and won an Emmy Award for his role in the 1990-1994 TV series Evening Shade.

With his trademark moustache, rugged looks and macho aura, he was a leading male sex symbol of the 1970s. He appeared naked - reclining on a bearskin rug with his arm strategically positioned for the sake of modesty - in a centrefold in the women's magazine Cosmopolitan in 1972. 온라인카지노

Reynolds' personal life sometimes overshadowed his movies, with marriages that ended in divorce to actresses Loni Anderson and Judy Carne and romances with others, including Sally Field and Dinah Shore. Reynolds also generated attention for financial woes and his struggles with prescription pain medication.

Reynolds cited director John Boorman's Oscar-nominated 1972 Deliverance as his best film and said he regretted that the hoopla from his Cosmopolitan appearance detracted from the movie that made him a star. He played tough-guy Lewis Medlock - opposite Jon Voight, Ned Beatty and Ronny Cox - in the chilling tale of a canoe trip gone bad in rural Georgia.

He starred in dozens of films, also including White Lightning (1973), WW And The Dixie Dancekings (1975),Hustle (1975), Nickelodeon (1976) and Semi-Tough (1977).

He was the top money-making star at the box office in an annual poll of movie exhibitors 1978 through 1982.

Many of his films were set in the South. He often played a lovable rascal who outwits local authorities as in director Hal Needham's 1977 crowd-pleasing action comedy Smokey And The Bandit, co-starring his girlfriend Field and Jackie Gleason, and its two sequels.

Another of his better roles was that of former a pro quarterback who lands in prison and assembles a team of convicts to play the warden's squad of brutal prison guards in 1974's rollicking The Longest Yard, directed by Robert Aldrich. He appeared in a supporting role 2005's remake with Adam Sandler.

Reynolds also directed several movies in which he starred, including Gator (1976), The End (1978), Sharky's Machine(1981) and Stick (1985).

While some of his performances were critically praised, others were ridiculed, particularly in the bloated action comedy Cannonball Run II, a sequel to his financial success Rhe Cannonball Run (1981).

He also starred in the notorious 1975 musical flop At Long Last Love, a film so atrocious that director Peter Bogdanovich publicly apologised for making it.

Reynolds turned down notable roles, including Han Solo in Star Wars, which went to Harrison Ford; the title role in a James Bond film; and the astronaut in Terms Of Endearment that Jack Nicholson turned into an Oscar-winning performance.

    Just wondering why there's no real coverage or conversation on today's massive DDoS attack? Having to scour the other parts of the 안전놀이터 Internet for news and updates which I would have expected The Verge to automatically and masterfully cover. #wassup

    Since comments are disabled on the article: I'm really interested in people's opinion. What do you think about this? 안전놀이터 Why did my boyfriend like Emily Ratajkowski's butt on Instagram? Personally: I think an Insta "like" has such different value to different people that it's basically impossible to interpret what that means (for your relationship) without discussing that with the other person first. Or at least looking at what their regular behaviour is (do they follow 3 people and like almost nothing or follow 1000 people and like everything that passes under their thumb?) 인터넷바카라Then there's the whole aspect of guys looking at other girls than their girlfriend. It shouldn't matter, but it does. How do you deal with that?

    What is the future of Youtube shows? 인터넷카지노 Youtube and by default all of its hit channels are less than ten years old, but let's talk about how time affects Youtube. We've already seen the top channels peak and descend. The crown for most subscribed channel went from Ray William Johnson to Smosh to Pewdiepie. The crown for most watched recently from Machinima to Rihanna. Some Youtubers have made the transition to other media, or are trying to, like Toby Turner and the Fine Bros.  But I'm wondering if the future YT channels will be like other media or not. What will happen whenever someone wants to end their channel or a member of a duo wants to leave and the other wants to stay? Will Youtube channels die like cancelled television shows? Viewers are not as accustomed to endings like that online as on TV. How will audiences respond? 온라인바카라 If one of the Fine Brothers or Smosh guys wants to move on to something else, will the show continue with a new person like a late night talk show or SNL? Or are YT channels and their viewership not built to outlast their creators?

    ...and you probably aren't thinking about it because it's hot as balls outside right now. 인터넷카지노 BUT if you do live in New York, you probably know that landlords are required to turn the heat on by a certain date in October every year — and that every year certain scummy landlords will try to save money by not doing it. Of course, this happens most in poor neighborhoods in South Brooklyn and the Bronx. Yay! The universe is horrible. 바카라사이트주소     Tenants in these neighborhoods often have to fight with their landlords to get heat in the winter, and one thing makes this fight really tough — the lack of data. Tenants may be tracking the temperature in their apartments, but it's just not that convincing when you hand a judge a handwritten diary, especially if your landlord is right there calling you a liar. My brother started a nonprofit project to fix this. It's called HeatSeekNYC. They're placing XBees outfitted with thermometers in individual apartments and using a Raspberry Pi as a hub for a mesh network to get whole buildings online. The sensor takes regular temperature readings and records that data on a website that can be used by tenants, lawyers, and housing advocates. 카지노사이트  The system provides easy to read, incontrovertible data from the entire building so that landlords will be forced to stay honest. And if the landlord ever tries to turn the heat off or keep the temperature even just below the legal limit, it's easy to prove. HeatSeek is competing for funding from the NYC BigApps competition, and they need votes! Please consider giving them your support. A win would pay for 600 sensors.

    Saw this on Kickstarter. It sounds like an interesting way of delivering tech news. I’ve seen many detailed discussions and lengthy article-like posts on forums like this one, 카지노사이트주소  so it’d definitely be interesting to see how effective this would be.

    I would like to know, is it possible to remove or report my own questions that I have? I have asked some questions on Yahoo Answers that have some personal details in them and I would like to have them removed. I asked the website there but they so far the answers that I got was not that helpful. 안전놀이터   So far when I ask there they just give me 1. Click on the pencil icon and delete your questions 2. Once you have a best answer you cannot delete it. 바카라사이트 I know that you can report questions so I have other accounts on YA and I have been reporting my questions and so far that works. But I want to know what more effective measures that I can use to delete my questions?

    One of the points brought up by the opponent of Title ii was that he feels like Netflix should be paying ISPs extra for using up so much bandwidth. He felt like it made more sense for customers to pay Netflix more, so that Netflix can then go and pay his company extra for "clogging" up the internet. 온라인바카라 My confusion in all this is, what exactly am I paying for with my internet service plan and what am I paying Netflix for? If my ISP is getting paid so that I can have a certain amount/tier of bandwidth and GBs a month (as long as I stay under a cap), then shouldn't the delivery of Netflix /HBO Go/Hulu Plus/Amazon Video be part of that service? I thought I was paying Netflix for the content, and not the delivery. 카지노사이트주소    If my ISP cannot handle the video delivery because the content takes up too much bandwidth and resources, I'd expect that they should tell me, "Hey radderthanrad, all these video services take up a lot of resources and you're using more than most customers, so you should probably upgrade to a better connection so that you can maintain high-quality delivery of the videos you want to watch." 바카라사이트주소     In fact, when I had Xbox Gold and lived with someone else who liked to online game a lot, I paid Comcast extra for a better quality connection to make sure I could enjoy a good experience. I don't understand why I would expect Xbox's online gaming services to subsidize Comcast or Verizon for using up internet connections. What do you all think?

    First off, forgive me if there is an article on this - I haven't been paying much attention to the news (mainly because there isn't much relevant shit to me in it most of the time) ANYWAY... 카지노사이트Anyone noticing some weird subtle things going on between Facebook and Google/Youtube?   There's a Facebook "view" counter on videos now (yeah, I know that doesn't seem important but that is one more Youtube feature that Facebook is enabling - won't be long before a thumbs down button shows up ;) ) 온라인카지노 Is it me, or do embedded Youtube videos no longer support playback within the post? It seems when clicking on embedded Youtube thumbnails, I get taken to another tab with the Youtube URL now instead of it playing directly Thanks for indulging. Curious on your thoughts. Yes, YOU :D

    I'm usually not a fan of most of Apples products, but sometimes you have to take a step back and admire some of the results of the decisions they make. 카지노사이트주소 AirPods... Well IMO they look goofy as hell, and probably fall out of half the populations ears. However MKBHD said in his last video...more so proclaimed he sees them everywhere, and they are most likely the most popular wireless earbuds. Is he right? I don't know. Maybe. However, it is pretty easy to notice AirPods from any other BT earbud. They stand out.  Most earbuds are black little things nestled in your ears that don't stand out to a normal person in public. They all look alike. But...not AirPods. They are white little sticks coming out of your ears. They scream, "Notice Me." It is probably why they don't even come in a black colorway. 온라인바카라 I'm sure Apple did this on purpose, because guess what? Tech YouTubers saying they are the most popular thing ever, is just free advertising. It'sactually kind of genius. Me personally, I don't see them much over here in California. But I think many folks maybe too embarrassed to just wearing walking around, because they look crazy. But then again all BT headsets kind of do.

    Is the "Apple slowing down older phones" a US thing? I ask because I have a 6s Plus, nearly 2 yrs old, and it does not seem slow to me. My kids use my old and battered 5s for games and YouTube, and while it is clearly slower than my 6s it is perfectly usable. Prior to this I used an old 4s, that to me remained perfectly fine until I upgraded. 인터넷바카라 Also, most of the people I know and work with have iPhones (a few even used a 3GS or whatever it was called, until about 6 months ago) and I have never heard any complaints of slow phones from them either. Yet forums and articles are full of slow iPhone stories. I hail from little Denmark, so I wonder if that’s anything to do with this discrepancy?

    As a result of Jeff’s recent forum post on iMessage, I’ve been thinking a lot about iOS; more specifically, about its native applications. 인터넷카지노 My smartphone history consists of various different OSs and Phones [Palm Treo => iPhone 3G => Windows Phone(s) => Galaxy Note 5 => iPhone 7], so I’ve had a chance to try all of (what at the time was) the Big Three. In hindsight, my decision to leave any particular platform was fairly petty/short-sighted: I left Palm because I thought the iPhone was cooler I left the iPhone because I preferred Windows Phone’s (and/or Zune’s) design principles I left Windows Phone because I wanted Snapchat I left Android because of battery issues/how it managed background applications But there were only 2 reasons I switched back to an iPhone: Official battery case (a friend showed me his and I loved it) iMessage (a friend of mine is colorist AF and hates seeing green bubbles) 인터넷바카라 But aside from iMessage and the case, there is nothing that’s making me stick with iOS. I use a few of the other default apps (Phone, Weather, Clock, Photos, Camera, TestFlight*), but every platform has their own incarnation of those and I could survive without them. So my question to the forum is: what are the (other reasons) users stick with iOS? What applications do you prefer over the default iOS applications? And if you prefer certain iOS default apps, which ones and why are they better the competition offered in the App Store?
