    Burt Reynolds attends his first comic con in Philadelphia

    Burt Reynolds, star of such films as "Gator" and "Smokey and the Bandit," attended his first comic con in Philadelphia on Saturday.
    Hollywood legend Burt Reynolds showed he can still kick it into high gear as he stepped out for the Wizard World Comic Con in Philadelphia on Saturday.

    "I always enjoy talking to fans and I'm usually very pleased with their curiosity about my career, what I'm doing, what I'm not doing, and why I'm not doing more,"the 79-year-old told the Philadelphia Inquirer.

    The “Smokey and the Bandit” star made his debut at a comic con, where attendees included cult favorites such as “Machete” star Danny Trejo and the original Incredible Hulk, Lou Ferrigno.

    Reynolds unveiled some details about his second memoir, “But Enough About Me,” which is still in the works. The actor will focus his latest memoir on all the people he worked with throughout his acting career.





    "When you write a book like this, you have to tell the whole thing, and there are days when everything isn't wonderful and there were people who I thought were asses," Reynolds said. "I'm having a lot of fun, but it's beginning to look a little bit like the dictionary. I started acting in a TV series in 1959 and I've been working ever since, so there's an awful lot to reminisce about."

    Reynolds told fans that he will even talk about the people he didn't get along with on set.

    "I got along great with 98% of them, and a few of them I didn't like at all," he said.

    I'm at a god damn loss for words. He has the Howard face on from the famous AGT picture. Maybe they are one in the same.

    Stuttering John yelling at Burt in some mall or something is classic. Burt had john removed but as John is riding up an escalator he is still peppering Burt below with questions. My favorite, "could you work with Ned Beatty again after he got raped in Deliverance?"

    Reynolds is almost 80, and it's not as though he took it easy for much of his life.

    Add him to the list.

    It's hard to feel sorry for Burt, what with all the legendary pussy he's enjoyed.
