MORE INFO ON BURT REYNOLDS: Enduring, strong-featured and genial star of US cinema, Burt Reynolds started off in TV westerns in the 1960s and then carved his name into 1970/1980s popular culture as a male sex symbol (posing near naked for "Cosmopolitan" magazine) and on-screen as both a rugged action figure and then as a wisecracking, Southern-type "good ol?' boy".

Handsome Reynolds originally hailed from Waycross, Georgia, before his family moved to Florida, where he excelled as an athlete and played with Florida State University. He became an All Star Southern Conference halfback (and was earmarked by the Baltimore Colts) before a knee injury and a car accident ended his football career. Midway through college he dropped out and headed to New York with aspirations of becoming an actor. There he worked in restaurants and clubs while pulling the odd TV spot or theatre role.

He was spotted in a New York City production of "Mister Roberts" and signed to a TV contract and eventually had recurring roles in such shows as (1955), (1959) and his own series, (1966).

Reynolds continued to appear in non-demanding western roles, often playing an Indian halfbreed, in films such as (1966), (1969) and (1969). However, it was his tough-guy performance as macho Lewis Medlock in the backwoods nightmare (1972) that really stamped him as a bona-fide star. Reynolds' popularity continued to soar with his appearance as a no-nonsense private investigator in (1973) and in the comedy (1972). Building further on his image as a Southern boy who outsmarts the local lawmen, Reynolds packed fans into theaters to see him in (1973), (1974), (1975) and (1976).

At this time, ex-stuntman and longtime Reynolds buddy came to him with a "road film" script. It turned out to be the incredibly popular (1977) with and , which took over $100 million at the box office. That film's success was followed by (1980) and (1983). Reynolds also appeared alongside in the hit football film (1977), with friend in the black comedy _End, The (1978)_ (which Reynolds directed), in the stunt-laden buddy film (1978) and then in the self-indulgent, star-packed road race flick (1981).

The early 1980s started off well with a strong performance in the violent cop film (1981), which he also directed, and he starred with in (1982) and with fellow macho superstar in the coolly received (1984). However, other projects such as (1983), (1985) and (1981) failed to catch fire with fans and Reynolds quickly found himself falling out of popularity with movie audiences. In the late 1980s he appeared in only a handful of films, mostly below average, before his old friend television came to the rescue and he shone again in two very popular TV shows, (1989) and (1990), for which he won an Emmy.

He was back on screen, but still the roles weren't grabbing the public's attention, until his terrific performance as a drunken politician in the otherwise woeful (1996) and then another tremendous showing as a manipulative porn director in (1997), which scored him a Best Supporting Actor nomination. Like the phoenix from the ashes, Reynolds had resurrected his popularity and, in the process, had gathered a new generation of young fans, many of whom had been unfamiliar with his 1970s film roles. He put in entertaining work in (1999), (1999), (2001) and (2002). Definitely one of Hollywood's most resilient stars, Reynolds has continually surprised all with his ability to weather both personal and career hurdles and his 40-plus years in front of the cameras is testament to his staying ability, his acting talent and his appeal to film audiences.
