About Robert Reed
Tall, curly-haired actor, often cast as business-suited paternal types. Reed worked on mainly forgettable TV series from the 1960s, first gaining widespread notice as a crusading lawyer in "The Defenders". He is best remembered as "a man named Brady, with three boys of his own" on that corny 70s ode to the suburban family, "The Brady Bunch". Reed subsequently had major supporting roles on the miniseries "Rich Man, Poor Man" (1976) and "Roots" (1977).
