Burt Reynolds...blah...he ain't got sh-t on Clint Eastwood. Not trying to piss on anybody's shoes here, but this movie would of sucked with Reynolds, but the Smokey and the Bandit movies would have been 10 times better with Eastwood, Reynolds is an alright actor, he's just kind of overrrated and annoying sometimes
Actually Burt was gonna play Clyde.

>>Actually Burt was gonna play Clyde.
I am in total agreement here. Burt Reynolds would have been horrible in this part. I agree Burt Reynolds is a bit overated(NOT TERRIBLE) but he is downright annoying.
Hey don't be ragging on Burt you homo. If Burt read this he would smack you around and I would hold you back for him. Burt is cool!!
I really like Burt in the movies Ive watched with him in it, and Ive liked Clint in the movies Ive seen with him in them... That being said they're both very one dimensional actors. Philo couldve easily been Harry Calaghan on a break from policing, and every character Ive seen Burt play has pretty much been The Bandit.
That being said, both actors have chosen films that compliment their styles. I cant see how Burt couldve played Philo and I cant see how Clint couldve played The Bandit. The Bandit is a wise cracking smart ass while Clint is a very dry comedic actor and Philo is a very dry witted hard ass while Burt is a wise cracking lady's man (these are in their films anyway).

HEY IMBLUZCLOOBY! The only type of parts Burt Reynolds should have ever been given in his whole entire acting career were the types that he did in the movie striptease! By the way it would take 2 of you to maybe smack me around because he couldn't do it by himself! No need to be calling people names on this board!
