Trivia: Most of us know ROBERT REED from his portrayal of Mike Brady on TV's The Brady Bunch. However, Reed had a rather versatile and distinguished career, mostly in television (with some movie and stage work). Soon after the release of BLOODLUST (a film which rightfully embarrassed him later), Robert Reed won a part on the much-lauded TV series The Defenders. He was nominated for, but did not win, an Emmy three times: 1976's miniseries Rich Man, Poor Man; 1976 guest appearance on Medical Center; 1977's miniseries Roots. Reed also appeared in the movie K13-SST DEATH FLIGHT.

Born in Chicago in 1932, John Robert Rietz changed his professional name to Robert Reed. Even though he probably was gay, he was married and had at least one child. Reed studied drama at Northwestern University, and later at London's Royal Academy of Dramatic Arts. He returned to Hollywood to do the pilot for a TV sitcom version of Barefoot in the Park (not done), and said he was talked into doing the Brady pilot which he hated and was amazed it was picked up. (Brady producer Sherwood Schwartz first choice for Mike Brady part was 401-SPACE TRAVELERS star Gene Hackman! ABC rejected Hackman upfront so he never screen-tested). Reed says he was forced to do the series because of a signed contract with options. Reed and Schwartz battled constantly over scripts, but he was very good to all the cast. Reed's real-life daughter Carolyn played Marcia's friend Karen in Brady Bunch episode #30-The Slumber Caper.

In 1992, Robert Reed died of AIDS.
