As part of our ongoing commitment to excellence, we here at Groupthink bring you the "Burt Reynolds Fact of the Day," a daily dose of helpful information about America's most useful comedic action star of the 1970s:
In the late 1950's, Burt Reynolds worked a serious of odd jobs as a struggling as-yet-unknown actor in New York City. During that time, America's Mustache worked as a
bouncer "houseman" (thanks, chritter!!) at the Roseland Ballroom in New York City, a dance hall and converted ice skating rink on West 52nd Street, in the theater district. Musical acts as diverse as Ke$ha, Fugazi, Nikki Minaj and Portishead have all performed in recent years at the Roseland. In 1991, Spike Lee also filmed a scene for "Malcolm X" in the ballroom.
And that, is your "Burt Reynolds Fact of the Day!"
