Jupiter's most famous son, Burt Reynolds released from hospital

Burt Reynolds' manager says the actor has been released from a Florida hospital after a planned heart bypass operation.  Erik Kritzer said in a statement Wednesday that Reynolds had been scheduled for the operation for over a month.

Kritzer says the star of "Smokey and the Bandit," "Deliverance" and "Boogie Nights" told him that he has "a great motor with brand new pipes" and is "feeling great."

Last year, Reynolds spent time in a Florida rehab center after treatment for painkiller abuse following back surgery.

The 74 year old Reynolds is Jupiter's most famous son.  He was raised in Jupiter and had a production studio in Jupiter Farms for several years.  His nephew still runs Town & Country Feed in Jupiter Farms.  Over on US One, there is the Burt Reynolds Museum with lots of memorabilia from his movie career.
