They even pie each other in the face!


As I write this, I’m probably about an hour removed from the breaking news that acclaimed actor Burt Reynolds passed away at the age of 82. Reynolds’ career spanned decades, and he was known for his roles in films like “Smokey and the Bandit” and “Deliverance.”

“Boogie Nights” is one of my favorite films and Reynolds’ Jack Horner role is what comes to mind when he’s mentioned (although Reynolds reportedly hated working with Paul Thomas Anderson and never watched the completed version).

I also can’t think of the legendary actor without replaying…
