Burt Reynolds Didn’t Shoot Any Scenes for Quentin Tarantino’s ‘Once Upon a Time in Hollywood’
Burt Reynolds, the legendary actor who died Thursday at the age of 82, did not get the chance to shoot what would have been a remarkable final film appearance.

Earlier this summer, Reynolds was cast in Quentin Tarantino’s “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood” alongside a stacked cast that includes Margot Robbie, Brad Pitt and Leonardo DiCaprio, among others.

A person with knowledge of the project said that Reynolds had not yet shot any of his scenes for the film, which follows a faded TV actor and his stunt double as they embark on an odyssey to make a name for themselves in the film industry in 1969 Los Angeles, during the Charles Manson murders.

Reynolds was expected to play George Spahn, the ranch owner who rented his land out to Manson and his cult of followers.

The actor was scheduled to begin shooting in early October, according to his agent.

Burt Reynolds, Star of ‘Deliverance,’ ‘Smokey and the Bandit,’ Dies at 82

Burt Reynolds, Star of ‘Deliverance,’ ‘Smokey and the Bandit,’ Dies at 82
Burt Reynolds, one of Hollywood’s most popular leading men during the ’70s and early ’80s in such films as “Deliverance,” “Smokey and the Bandit, “The Longest Yard” and “Semi-Tough,” has died. His rep confirmed that he died Thursday in Jupiter, Fla. He was 82.

He later earned an Oscar nomination as best supporting actor in Paul Thomas Anderson’s ode to skin flicks, “Boogie Nights.” He had been set to appear in Quentin Tarantino’s “Once Upon a Hollywood.”

Reynolds’ appeal lay in his post-modern macho posture undercut by a wry self-awareness, which he used to good effect in comedies as well as action films. For a period during the ’70s he was the nation’s top box office draw. But after one too many bad movies, his popularity waned. He returned to television, where he’d gotten his start, mostly in Westerns, and produced his own sitcom, “Evening Shade,” which brought him an Emmy.

Happy 80th Burt-day to Burt Reynolds! – Here Are His Ten Best Movies

Article by Jim Batts, Dana Jung, Travis Keune, and Tom Stockman

Burt Reynolds, one of We Are Movie Geeks favorite actors, turns 80 today. Happy Birthday Burt!

On February 11th, 1936, Reynolds was born in Waycross, Georgia, before his family moved to Jupiter Florida, where his father served as Chief of Police. Young Burt excelled at sports and played football at Florida State University. He became an All Star Southern Conference halfback (and was earmarked by the Baltimore Colts) before injuries sidelined his football career. He dropped out of college and headed to New York with dreams of becoming an actor. There he worked in restaurants and clubs while pulling the odd TV job or theater role. Burt was spotted in a New York City stage production of Mister Roberts and signed to a TV contract and eventually had recurring roles in such shows as Gunsmoke (1955), Riverboat (1959) and his own series, Hawk

Thanks For Sharing – The Review

As we ease into the winter months (and the year-end awards season), the studios are delving into more serious subject matter such as this film’s look at addiction. Now we’re not into substance abuse like the classic The Man With The Golden Arm (drugs) or The Lost Weekend (alcohol), but it does encompass a form of abuse. You wouldn’t know from the deceptive marketing which make it look like a glossy “rom-com”, but Thanks For Sharing deals with sex addiction or Sa (with the word “sharing” in the film’s title you’d think they could “share” a bit more info), a controversial concept (one character even questions whether Sa is a real thing, as do many researchers). There have been a few films dealing with this subject. Blake Edwards, years after his classic alcohol abuse film The Days Of Wine And Roses, touched on Sa with

Interview: Marilu Henner Talks of Home for the Holidays

Chicago – One of Chicago’s favorite native daughters is Ms. Marilu Henner, who has had a tremendous show business career on stage (the original cast of “Grease”), TV (the unforgettable “Taxi”) and film (“The Man Who Loved Women”). She is also the author of “Total Memory Makeover: Uncover Your Past, Take Charge of Your Future” and the accompanying 2013 desk calendar. As a woman of incomparable depth and talent, Henner has distinguished herself in many arenas.

One of the quirkier revelations about Marilu Henner is that she is one of the very few people in the world with “superior autobiographical memory,” the amazing ability to recall any date in her lifetime. She was profiled with others having that ability on the news show “60 Minutes” in 2010, and released “Total Memory Makeover” in 2012 as a result of teaching practical applications regarding her gift.

Common Is ‘The Man Who Loved Women’ In Truffaut Remake

If you’re going to remake Truffaut, you might as well do the job on a lesser-known effort. Such a mentality makes this news a bit easier to work out, as Shadow&Act has learned that Common (Terminator Salvation, Hell on Wheels) will star in an update of the director’s 1977 outing, The Man Who Loved Women. (This is a film that was first remade in 1983, with Blake Edwards directing — if you can believe this pairing — Burt Reynolds and Julie Andrews. People have indicated it’s not very good.) Director J. Kevin Swain — whose prior work consists of music videos and, on a related note, music-related television documentaries — will make his debut on the film.

Truffaut‘s film centered on Bertrand Morane, a French man who, in writing his autobiography, details the various romantic conquests he’s managed to accrue throughout the years; in this outing, Common will be seen

Take Three: Kim Basinger

Craig here with Take Three. Today: Kim Basinger

Bay•sing•er

I think it’s time again to give Kim Basinger (remember, it's Bay-singer, not Bah-sinjahr, folks) some major credit. The lady's due. She’s gone from supporting eighties female through a love-hate (but Oscar-nabbing) nineties to her current career bloom as a character actress of some depth. Ms Basinger has always quietly impressed me. Here are three reasons why.

Take One: She loooovves purple.

Basinger’s career was birthed alongside the eighties. Feisty ladies in adventurous circumstances were her trade back then. Although through either slip-ups or fate she was often eclipsed by her male co-stars. In Never Say Never Again, The Man Who Loved Women, The Natural, Fool for Love, 9½ Weeks, No Mercy, Blind Date and Nadine she played second-fiddle female to, respectively, Connery, Reynolds, Redford, Shepard, Rourke, Gere, Willis and Bridges. These regulars of male-patterned eighties flicks
