It is unfortunate that I have to report that cultural icon Burt Reynolds has passed away. Known for Deliverance, Smokey and the Bandit, The Cannonball Run, and Boogie Nights, and for being the fictional character Archer’s idol, Reynolds has had a long career not only starring in movies and television, but for essentially being one of the most well-known Hollywood personalities. No matter what age you are or what your favorite genre of cinema is, you know who Burt Reynolds is, which makes this even more shocking.

Per Reynold’s manager Erik Krtizer, Reynolds died at Jupiter Medical in Florida. This story is still developing and the cause for his death is unknown at this time, although; Reynolds had not been in the best of health recently. Reynolds was 82 years old at the time of his death this Thursday morning.

We’ll let you know as we find out more.
