Early life and career

There, he was cast in a touring production of the revue Smokey Joe's Cafe, as well as the tour of Saturday Night Fever. After this run, he went to New York, auditioning for various shows. He was originally cast in Hairspray's ensemble, but was offered the role of Seaweed after three readings.[1] For this role, he was nominated for a Tony Award and Drama Desk Award, both for Outstanding Featured Actor in a Musical.

Reynolds guest starred on Without a Trace and appeared in The Guardian prior to his role in The Closer. To research this role, Reynolds drew on his past work in security and law enforcement, prior to his acting career.
