He's not dead, he's just scouting locations for his new project--a reboot of the popular TV show Six Feet Under.

That guy, and his cohorts, inspired me to do some very stupid things as a child.

Don't regret a moment of it.

Man I loved Hooper. It had titties and stuff blowing up and Burt Reynolds driving really fast. I think I have that DVD around here somewhere, I should throw it in as rememberance.

Dammit Netflix, why don't you have Hooper yet.
 
2013-10-25 10:27:54 PM
His coffin will be shot out of a cannon into a stack of cardboard boxes over a collapsing bridge that's on fire. Thank you.

I think that movie defined guilty pleasure.

PainInTheASP: He's not dead, he's just scouting locations for his new project--a reboot of the popular TV show Six Feet Under.

So I wonder if he drove a rocket trans Am thru St Peters gates, over a ravine, While piro's are going off below him, into a stack of cardboard boxes. All while doing a 360. And in all that he does not spill his beer or drop his Cig.

She kinda lost her shiat over the transformation...

That's too bad but if there's anyone who it can be said that they did a powerslide into the grave shouting 'wow, what a ride' it's him.

/like many others I'll be digging out Hooper in the morning to watch

ESPN's Ryan McGee interviewed Hal and Harry Gant about their NASCAR days (after the book came out)

Yes. that kind of film making is a lost art.
I just hope we can get 1 more movie out of Mel Brooks before he kicks the bucket.

Born in the late 1960s, I was the right age to love his movies.  I read his autobiography last year.

You're not alone. Stroker Ace was every bit the documentary on NASCAR that Talladega Nights is.

I'll wear my shirt buttons at half-mast in his honor.

Damn, I loved Smokey and Cannonball.  RIP, Hal.  Thanks for the fun ride.
 
2013-10-27 12:16:03 AM
Sorry, subby.

While Hal certainly was one of the best, Dar Robinson was without peer.
 
2013-10-27 01:27:48 AM
Nope, Yakima Canutt will always be the best.  His stunt in Stagecoach will never be matched.
 
2013-10-27 11:37:05 AM
gotta watch "Smokey and the Bandit" today.
