American general-purpose actor Alfie Wise was evidently some sort of good luck charm to film luminary Burt Reynolds. Though his movie appearances were usually nondescript (this description could also apply to the actor's participation in such busted TV pilots as Call Her Mom and Young Tom Christian), Wise could always count on a moment or two to shine whenever cast in a Reynolds vehicle. He was seen as a state trooper in The Longest Yard (1974), as "patrolman in a traffic jam" in Smokey and the Bandit (1977), and as Tony in Hooper (1978). Additional Alfie Wise bits were included in the Burt Reynolds pictures The End (1978), Starting Over (1979), and Paternity (1981). On television, Alfie Wise had recurring roles on As the World Turns, Trauma Center, and the kiddie show Uncle Croc's Block (dressed appropriately -- and ridiculously -- for his role as Mr. Rabbit Ears).
