A sad day, my friend BURT REYNOLDS Has passed away. I remember him back in 1979, he always reminded me that I should’ve cast him as Colonel Trautman in FIRST BLOOD , I said that’s impossible, because you’re too expensive and too famous, and probably tougher than Rambo ! He laughed , He had a great sense of humor and I enjoyed his company so much… RIP

This was my childhood. Burt Reynolds was that guy for me: “Hooper” “Smokey and the Bandit” then, eventually, “Boogie Nights”. He was tough, funny, self deprecating, and a stuntman turned actor. Dar Robinson. Buddy Joe Hooker. Those were my heroes. Evil Knievel. Out on the ranch with our dirt bikes, jumping jumps, chasing coyotes back into the hills, riding as fast as we could try to clear the pond, airborne. All in the memories. All in that adolescent proving that manliness was ready for us. Burt Reynolds had it all when we were kids and, from@way out there, his pedestal seemed perched a million miles away. #ripburtreynolds #countrylife #hooper
