Burt Reynolds to publish memoir in 2015

“The story sucks them in,” is how Jack Horner explains the secret behind his productions in Boogie Nights. And now, the actor behind Jack Horner is ready to tell his story.

Burt Reynolds’ memoir, titled But Enough About Me, will be published in fall 2015 by G. P. Putnam’s Sons. Jon Winokur, who co-wrote The Garner Files with James Garner, will be co-writing the book with Reynolds. Jon Voight, who starred in Reynolds’ breakout film, 1972’s Deliverance, will be providing a foreword.

But Enough About Me will cover Reynold’s life from his childhood in South Florida through his six-decade career and courtships in Hollywood. We’re also going to hear his take on his famous nude spread in a 1972 Cosmopolitan centerfold, the two pages that made the publication infamous.

“Setting the record straight is something that I have wanted to do for a while now,” Reynolds said. “And with this book I will.”
