Live Poll: In Memory of Burt Reynolds

In progress

Perennial star Burt Reynolds has passed away at age 82. A prolific actor with over 180 credits, his final film appearance was scheduled be in Quentin Tarantino's Once Upon a Time in Hollywood (2019), currently filming in the Los Angeles area.

One of the most popular stars and sex symbols in the 1970s. The terms "beefcake," "hunk" and "stud" could arguably have been created to describe him.

While Mr. Reynolds created several unforgettable characters in his long career, we'd like to know: which of his characters is your favorite?

Sometimes, I realize I spend too much time focused on polls even when I don't make them... when I heard about Burt Reynolds' death, I was sad and shocked but my immediate thought was "pretty sure someone's already working on a tribute poll on IMDb", nothing wrong with that but I don't know, I didn't feel comfortable with that reaction...

... looking forward to seeing your poll.

Yeah. My mouth kind of fell open when I read it. He's been sick for a long time and it shouldn't be a surprise at his age, but it still shocked me.

BUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUURT!

Yep, it's the end of an era, I think we should get ourselves ready to hear more and more devastating news like this... I know my heart will be broken to pieces if some actors die... but Burt is quite a shock. He was one of these faces I knew before putting a name on it. Very sad...

The baby boomer generation...just like they generally have more people, they are going to have more celebs/actors so I'm sure we'll be hearing a lot more soon. :(

I first saw his face as Bandit. Never lost this cool impression.
So rest in peace, Bandit.
