Foreclosure Threatens South Florida Home of Burt Reynolds

Carlos Marino/Getty Images(LOS ANGELES) -- Looks like the foreclosure crisis is hitting Burt Reynolds. The Smokey and the Bandit star reportedly owes over a million bucks on his South Florida home called Valhalla, and he hasn't made a payment in a year.

The South Florida Sun Sentinel says the house, which Reynolds bought with ex-wife Loni Anderson, is worth 2.4 million. He put it on the market in 2009 for almost 9 million.

Reynolds has been in financial trouble before. He filed for bankruptcy in the '90s after divorcing Anderson and after some bad investments.
