Eyebrows For Days

My new ADVENTURE TIME coworker Julia Pott mentioned today that she was an extra in a Burt Reynolds movie. Look! There she is. Back there behind Charles Durning, on a balcony or terrace, I suppose, studying a menu. I asked whether she had any good Burt Reynolds stories and she said, "He just told me to get out of his seat. He said, 'Little lady! Get out of my chair!' Then he laughed and I laughed." They were on a break from shooting and Julia had accidentally alighted in the spot reserved for Burt in the scene. I asked her for more details. "He had eyebrows for days," she said.
