Reynolds was born on February 11, 1936, in Lansing, Michigan. Over the course of his career, he has won awards such as Best TV Actor – Drama (1970), Best Actor in a Motion Picture (1979) and Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor (1990 & 1997). Many Americans have spent hours on top of hours watching his movies and recognizing him as the “sex symbol” of the 70’s and 80’s.  His successes were not just limited to acting. He made a name for himself as a football star at Palm Beach High School and was talented enough to earn an athletic scholarship to Florida State University. Unfortunately, Reynold suffered injuries that sabotaged his football career. Not giving up in life, Reynold decided to pursue acting. But success didn’t come easy. He was fired from multiple places and got remarks such as his Adam’s apple was too big and that he wasn’t cut for acting. It wasn’t until the late 1950’s where he made his film debut in Angel Baby. From there on, his legacy began.
