Mini Bio (1)

Scott H. Reiniger was born on September 5, 1948 in White Plains, New York. Scott studied theater at Rollins College in Florida. One of his classmates was Christine Forrest, the future wife of acclaimed cult horror filmmaker George Romero. Following graduation from college Reiniger went back to New York and did a lot of acting on stage. He also had a semi-recurring part on the daytime soap opera "As the World Turns" for about a year. Scott then moved to San Francisco for intensive training at the American Conservatory Theater. Reiniger came back to New York again to resume more theater and television work. He made his film debut with a small role in the sappy family feature "Danny." Scott gave a wonderfully lively and engaging performance as the happy-go-lucky Roger in Romero's outstanding "Dawn of the Dead." He had a sizable co-starring in Romero's follow-up movie "Knightriders" and portrayed a rapist in the made-for-TV picture "The Other Victim." In addition, Reiniger had a recurring role as a cop on the daytime soap opera "Days of Our Lives" and appeared in an episode of "Falcon Crest." More recently Scott made a cameo appearance as an army general in the excellent "Dawn of the Dead" remake. In 2004 Reiniger discovered that he's the great, great, great grandson of Josiah Harlan, who was the first American to set foot in Afghanistan. This in turn makes Scott Reiniger the prince of the Western province of Ghor.
