JUPITER, FL (AP) -- Burt Reynolds' manager says the actor has been released from a Florida hospital after having a planned bypass operation.
Erik Kritzer said in a statement on Wednesday that Reynolds had been scheduled for the operation for over a month.
Kritzer said Reynolds went into the hospital on Monday and was discharged on Tuesday.
Kritzer says the star of "Smokey and the Bandit," "Deliverance" and "Boogie Nights" told him that he has "a great motor with brand new pipes" and is "feeling great."
Last year, Reynolds spent time in a Florida rehab center after treatment for painkiller abuse following back surgery.
Reynolds is 74.
