[ # ] Imagine Burt Reynolds as James Bond or Hans Solo
November 17th, 2015 under 70s, Burt Reynolds


Burt Reynolds has an autobiography out called But Enough About Me and in it he details some of the infamous roles he turned down. Can you imagine ’70s biggest sex symbol as Bond, James Bond? Actually, I could, but he couldn’t and he told Good Morning America’s Lara Spencer why he turned it down. He said, “I said, ‘An American can’t play James Bond. It has to be an Englishman. Bond, James Bond. You know, I can’t do it.’” Other roles he said he couldn’t do are Star Wars’ Han Solo and Terms of Endearment’s Garrett Breedlove which eventually went to Jack Nicholson.
Not only did he turn down movies, he also turned down his one true love, Sally Field. When Spencer asked him if he thinks maybe they could get together now, he said “No. No. She’s too smart for that.” She is single, so maybe he can woe her during a moment of weakness. And maybe we can get one more Smokey and the Bandit movie out of it? It’s a win/win!
