Burt Reynolds Facts
In 1999, one of the projects that never realized for Burt was Bulls Night Out. The movie was supposed to be an old-fashioned cop drama about over-the-hill cops making justice with their own hands. It was to be directed by Burt himself, and to star him and a number of other veteran action stars. Roy Scheider, Danny Aiello, Louis Gossett Jr. and Charles Durning were all attached.

Early in career appeared as a contestant on "The Dating Game" (1965).

Burt met director David O. Russell in late 1995 for dinner, to discuss a possible role for him in the independent movie Flirting with Disaster. Although the two felt very enthusiastic about Burt playing a part, negotiations fell through.
