It's not many acting hopefuls who get the chance to personally quiz the likes of Jack Nicholson, Michael Douglas and Peter Fonda on how to make it "big" in Hollywood, so when a young James Reynolds got the opportunity, he grabbed it. Having studied journalism in college, Reynolds spent time as a film reviewer for the "Topeka Daily Capitol" and, as a part of his duties, interviewed a number of filmdom's brightest talents. Reynolds' research has paid off as viewers who have seen him regularly on NBC's "Days of Our Lives" and "Generations" will attest. Reynolds made his first appearance as stalwart police captain Abe Carver on "Days of Our Lives" in 1981. After nine years, Reynolds moved to the new daytime series "Generations," where he earned an Emmy nomination for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series. With the subsequent demise of that series, Reynolds returned to "Days of Our Lives" in 1991. In 2004 received a NAACP Image Award nomination for Best Actor in a Daytime Drama for his role on "Days of Our Lives," followed by a 2004 Daytime Emmy nomination for Best Supporting Actor in a Drama. Despite his heavy schedule on the series, Reynolds still finds time to head Free State Productions, a film and TV production company involved with documentaries, movies and music videos, as well as making occasional appearances on stage in Los Angeles. He starred in "Buffalo Soldier" at Theatre/Theater in a taut drama about black U.S. Army troops in the American West following the Civil War for which he was nominated for an NAACP Theatre Award. He also starred with other Vietnam veterans in the acclaimed drama "Tracers," which was conceived by John DiFusco and created by a group of actor/veterans in 1980. When time permits, Reynolds tours colleges in his one-man show, "I, Too, Am America." The show, written and performed by Reynolds, is a commentary on the African-American experience from the time the first slaves were brought to this country up to the present day.
