Burt Reynolds Slapped with Foreclosure Suit in Florida


Add "Smokey and the Bandit" star Burt Reynolds to the ever-growing list of Americans chugging down the foreclosure highway. Reynolds owes about $1.2 million on his Hobe Sound, Fla., home and hasn't made a mortgage payment in almost a year, reports the South Florida Sun-Sentinel. The 12,538-square-foot house is listed for sale at $8.995 million, which, given the depth of the housing market plunge in Florida, is probably what it would cost to buy the entire state.

Florida, the Sunshine State that gave the nation hanging chads and the anti-gay stylings of OJ-swigging Anita Bryant, has been devastated by the housing collapse and is a national leader in foreclosures.
