Paging Dr. Manly

Burton Leon "Burt" Reynolds (February 11, 1936-Present) was born in Lansing, Michigan, USA. He is an actor, director and producer known for his many television and movie roles.

In 1972, Reynolds was propelled to the A-list for his role as Lewis Medlock in the acclaimed film Deliverance. His position among the stars of Hollywood was secured a few years later when he was cast as the leading man in Smokey and the Bandit, which went on to become a trilogy and made him a staple of pop culture.

His career took a turn after a combination of financial and marital troubles and roles in under-performing films until taking a break from the big screen and returning to his television roots. The hit 90s sitcom Evening Shade earned him an Emmy for Best Actor. He went on to win a Golden Globe for Best Supporting Actor in a Motion Picture and an Oscar nomination in 1997 when he played adult filmmaker mogul Jack Horner in Boogie Nights.

Well-known for having a sense of humor about himself, he has remained active in recent years by returning to comedic television work, such as his voice acting in Robot Chicken, American Dad! and Archer.
