Paul "Wrecking" Crewe

Paul Wrecking Crewe 1974
We will go on record and say that of all the many sports roles that Burt Reynolds had, that the one as Paul “Wrecking” Crewe, the incarcerated Quarterback was easily our favorite. Actually, we will do one better, and say that it is our favorite Reynolds role period. Crewe was cocky, belligerent, tough and cool, and we watched him struggle with a moral compass, without falling too deeply into Hollywood cliché’s. For a Fictitious Athlete Hall, The Longest Yard (both versions actually) was a film that had brilliant football scenes and built up the end game perfectly. We would be shocked if Crewe (74) did not get selected to the Hall early.




The Bullet Points:
Movie Appeared:
The Longest Yard (1974)

Actor:
Burt Reynolds

Position Portrayed:
Quarterback

Played for:
The Mean Machine

Why you should vote for him:
This was a great role, a great movie, and a great performance.

Why you should not vote for him:
Did the remake overshadow this one?

The original was a classic with humour, emotion and affection between the players. Even the hardened, bald serial killer becomes "one of the boys", and the guards respect them in the end.

The Sandler remake? It's a bunch of puerile jokes and empty characters. Who could possibly believe that Sandler played football?
