Aah, that’s sad, I always liked him and all those old red neck playboy movies he did.

Whoa.

82’s not a bad run. He prolly coulda done better, except for the physical toll of having to get literally tossed out of bars and stuff in the movies.

I remember laughing my ass off at Hooper. One of my favorite lines is one I use on FB when trolling Trumpers, is “Hey save some of that vodka for breakfast” (Maybe the only line I remember, except for the drunk on a park bench with dozens of empty beer cans scene, “Oh no officer, we’re waiting for our mother to come pick us up”

I think he could have pulled off more serious dramatic roles too, he played a good bad azz in Deliverance, but it was just a more subdued version of Hooper and the Bandit.

Grew up on all those old movies… I think Burt Reynolds and Tom Selleck are both trans “T” men though… not to take anything away from them, they sure woo’d the ladies… :slight_smile:

I never thought that either one of them was all that interesting looking myself.


#9

They weren’t high art or anything, they were just bigger budget mirth and mayhem b movies with regular Joe fantasy hijinks.


#10

They had 150 or so pink Cadillacs at Aretha’s funeral. I wonder how many Trans Ams could be scared up for his funeral procession. Again GM will have to dig deep.

The funeral is Eastbound and Down
