Trivia that mentions this person:
All Dogs Go to Heaven [1989]
  • Burt Reynolds and Dom DeLuise recorded their lines together, as did Vic Tayback and Charles Nelson Reilly.
  • When the heavenly whippet looks in Charlie's records, his mother and father are named "Loni" and "Burt", and look like canine versions of Loni Anderson and Burt Reynolds (who were together at the time.)
    Beneath the Planet of the Apes [1970]
  • Burt Reynolds was considered the lead role of John Brent.
    Fletch [1985]
  • Gregory McDonald, the author of the [Fletch novels], had casting approval over the film. He rejected both [?] Mick Jagger and Burt Reynolds before he decided on Chevy Chase for the lead.
    Diamonds Are Forever [1971]
  • George Lazenby was asked to make a second [Bond] movie but declined, due to a lengthy and restrictive potential contract. Burt Reynolds was the original choice to replace him but was unavailable. Then American actor [?] John Gavin was signed to play James Bond in this movie. At the time, he had recently played the French Spy OSS 117 in the Eurospy flick OSS 117 - Double Agent. Adam West turned down the role because he felt that James Bond should be a British actor. Michael Gambon turned down the role because he was "in terrible shape" and "had tits like a woman." At the last minute Sean Connery agreed to return as Bond for the sixth time in a two-picture deal and at an astronomical salary for the time. Producer Albert R. Broccoli insisted that Gavin be paid-out the full salary called for in his contract.
    Blade Runner: The Final Cut [1982]
  • Dustin Hoffman was the original choice to play Deckard, although he wondered why he was asked to play a "macho character". According to Ridley Scott, Hoffman was interested, but wanted to make it a whole different kind of character. According to [?] Paul Sammon, apart from Hoffman, other actors considered for the role included Tommy Lee Jones, Gene Hackman, Sean Connery, Jack Nicholson, Paul Newman, Clint Eastwood, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Al Pacino, Burt Reynolds, William Devane, Raul Julia, Scott Glenn, [?] Frederic Forrest, Robert Duvall, Judd Hirsch, [?] Cliff Gorman, Peter Falk, Nick Nolte and Christopher Walken. Martin Sheen was offered the role, but he turned it down, as he was exhausted, having come off Apocalypse Now.
    Kingsman: The Golden Circle [2017]
  • The character "Whiskey" (played by Pedro Pascal), who strongly resembles and sounds like Burt Reynolds, may be a nod to one of Burt's roles. Burt Reynolds played a character named "Sam Whiskey" (in a movie of the same name).
    Mr. Mom [1983]
  • Burt Reynolds was considered for the role of Ron Richardson
