Burt Reynolds, Movie Star Who Played It for Grins, Dies at 82

Quote:
The ex-jock from Florida starred in 'Deliverance' and 'Boogie Nights' but preferred making such populist, fun fare as 'Smokey and the Bandit,' 'The Cannonball Run' and 'Starting Over.'

Burt Reynolds, the charismatic star of such films as Deliverance, The Longest Yard and Smokey and the Bandit who set out to have as much fun as possible on and off the screen — and wildly succeeded — has died. He was 82.

Reynolds, who received an Oscar nomination when he portrayed porn director Jack Horner in Paul Thomas Anderson's Boogie Nights (1997) and was the No. 1 box-office attraction for a five-year stretch starting in the late 1970s, died Thursday morning at Jupiter Medical Center in Florida, his manager, Erik Kritzer, told The Hollywood Reporter.

The cause of death was cardiopulmonary arrest.

Don Leo Jonathan dead at 87 (all-time great professional wrestler)

Quote:
Don Leo Delaun Heaton, better known to the pro wrestling world as "The Mormon Giant" Don Leo Jonathan, has died. He was 87 years old.

At the end of August, Heaton was admitted to a hospital in British Columbia, and never left.

Throughout his lengthy career, Don Leo Jonathan was one of the top wrestlers in the world, period. At 6-foot-6, at usually 280-320 pounds, he was both hulking, but also fast and agile, able to do a nip-up.

Contrasting his size was his voice, which was squeaky and high-pitched, yet measured and thoughtful, menacing when it needed to be, motivating when he wanted to rally the fans to his size.

R.I.P. Danny Leiner, Director of ‘Harold & Kumar’ and ‘Dude, Where’s My Car?

Quote:
Sad news, folks. We’re seeing reports on Facebook that Danny Leiner, the director of the beloved comedies Harold and Kumar Go to White Castle and Dude, Where’s My Car? has passed away following a long illness.

Leiner got his start with the well-received short films My Birthday Cake and Time Expired, which led him to make his feature debut with the 1996 comedy Layin‘ Low starring Jeremy Piven and Edie Falco. Four years later, he was tapped to direct the Ashton Kutcher-Seann William Scott comedy Dude, Where’s My Car?, where he also worked with a young Jennifer Garner. The film grossed $73 million worldwide on a $13 million budget, proving to be a modest hit for 20th Century Fox, though a much-rumored sequel failed to materialize.

Dick Modzelewski, Key Lineman in a Vaunted Giants Defense, Dies at 87

Quote:
Dick Modzelewski, the Giants’ tackle who played on the line that transformed defensive players into glamorous pro football figures during the team’s glory years of the late 1950s and early ’60s, died on Friday at his home in Eastlake, Ohio. He was 87.

His death was confirmed by his daughter Laurie Hardesty.

Modzelewski, the winner of the 1952 Outland Trophy as college football’s best interior lineman, playing for the University of Maryland, was obtained by the Giants in a trade before the 1956 season. Soon, chants of “Dee-fense” rang out at Yankee Stadium as Modzelewski at left tackle, Jim Katcavage at left end, Andy Robustelli at right end — all in their first season as Giants — and Rosey Grier at right tackle formed the first N.F.L. defensive line to be celebrated as a unit.

The Giants routed the Chicago Bears, 47-7, to win the 1956 N.F.L. championship and captured five more Eastern Conference titles in the next seven years with that defensive line virtually intact.
