LOS ANGELES (AP) — Burt Reynolds finally reached his final resting place at the historic Hollywood Forever Cemetery in Los Angeles. A small, private ceremony with relatives taking part remotely via Zoom, was held Thursday morning at the cemetery, where cremated remains of the “Smokey and the Bandit” and “Boogie Nights” star were placed in a grave next to a lake. A temporary headstone now marks the site, but a bust of Reynolds is being commissioned. Reynolds died in Jupiter, Florida, in September 2018. It's not clear why it took 2 1/2 years for the gravesite to be established.
