Burt Reynolds’ condition improves

Burt Reynolds recovering Burt Reynolds, who was hospitalized on Friday, is being moved out of intensive care after being struck by a virulent flu bug. The Smokey and the Bandit actor - who has been battling the illness for days and was ordered by doctors in Florida to seek urgent treatment for "severe dehydration" - is said to be on the road to recovery after his fever finally broke on Saturday morning. A spokesperson for the 76-year-old actor told gossip website TMZ.com that he is being moved out of the ICU and his family are thrilled that his temperature is back to normal after his condition was said to be "touch and go" earlier in the week. Burt most recently appeared on the sitcom Evening Shade, and contributed his voice to animated series Archer.

    All the bad movies he’s ever made, he still is an icon. Would be sad if he passed. Hope he recovers and makes something worth a lasting legacy.

    “Burt most recently appeared on the sitcom Evening Shade…”

    “Most recently?!” EVENING SHADE went off the air in 1994! Perhaps tribute.ca should research their subjects more thoroughly before sending their stories down the Information Highway…
