(TMZ) - Burt Reynolds is being treated in the intensive care unit at a Florida hospital after coming down with a nasty case of the flu, TMZ has learned. 

According to Burt's rep Burt, like everyone else in the country, caught that nasty flu bug that's been going around, and was coping with the symptoms for several days.
