The Smokey and the Bandit actor - who has been battling the illness for days and was ordered by doctors in Florida to seek urgent treatment for "severe dehydration" - is said to be on the road to recovery after his fever finally broke on Saturday morning. A spokesperson for the 76-year-old actor told gossip website TMZ.com that he is being moved out of the ICU and his family are thrilled that his temperature is back to normal after his condition was said to be "touch and go" earlier in the week.

The Boogie Nights star was hospitalized on Friday.

Burt previously had a quintuple heart bypass in 2010, and also had to undergo a month of rehab in 2009 for addiction to prescription drugs.
