Sadly, Burt Reynolds has passed away today at the age of 82 from cardiac arrest. Lets stop and appreciate all the awesome films he's left behind for us to enjoy.

Burt Reynolds is kind of a household name in America. I feel like as a child when you first heard the name Burt Reynolds you knew he was an important guy that everyone knew. You didn't know why...You just knew that EVERYONE knew this guys name so he must be pretty cool.
