Did You Know?

Personal Quote:

[Why he didn't complain about working on television] It takes a better actor. In movies, you have the best producers, best directors, lot of time . . . in TV, it's six or seven shows and no help at all to make drivel look good. See more »


His The Brady Bunch (1969) co-star Susan Olsen became friends with his real-life daughter, Karen Rietz, who made a guest appearance on one episode, when she was in the 9th grade. Despite her friendship with Reed's daughter, there was no father and daughter connection until Karen became an adult. See more »
