Biography

Born in Germany and raised in the U.S., tall, dark, and handsome leading man Rex Reason studied his craft at the Pasadena Playhouse. He made his first film in 1952, and his last (thus far) in 1959. On TV, Reason starred as newspaper editor Adam MacLean in the syndicated 1958 Western Man Without a Gun, and as still another journalist, reporter Scott Norris, on ABC's The Roaring 20s (1960-1962). Rex Reason briefly billed himself as Bart Roberts, possibly to avoid confusion with his lookalike actor brother Rhodes Reason. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
