Early life and acting career
Reese, the youngest son of William Reese and former actress Sonia Darrin, had a verbal precocity, red hair and slight lisp, all of which made him a recognizable figure. He was a frequent guest on The Mike Douglas Show. He appeared in numerous television commercials in the 1970s, particularly for Underwood Deviled Ham, Post Raisin Bran, and Dunkin' Donuts' Dunkin' Munchkins-brand "donut holes".
Since retiring from acting Reese has become a restaurant entrepreneur with multiple businesses in the New York City area. He owned Paladar, a now-defunct Pan-Latino restaurant located in Manhattan's Lower East Side. He opened an establishment named "Destination Bar and Grille" located on Avenue A in the East Village, which is also now closed. His most recent venture is "The Luxury Box", an upscale sports bar.
Reese has three older siblings. He attended Saint Michael's Montessori School, a non-denominational elementary school that was housed in St. Michael's Church on W. 99th Street in Manhattan, through fourth grade. In late 1975 he transferred to Professional Children's School, on West 60th Street in Manhattan. He began dating Geri Reischl (known as "Fake Jan" from The Brady Bunch Hour) in October 2016. On February 13, 2018 Reischl announced on social media that they are no longer a couple but remain close friends..
