Reuben Greene (born November 24, 1938) is an American film, theater and television actor. Greene, born and raised in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, landed the role of Dr. James Hudson on the 1969 CBS soap opera Where the Heart Is.[1]

Greene is perhaps best known for originating the role of Bernard in the play The Boys in the Band[2][3] and then later playing the same character in the 1970 film of the same name.[4][5]

In addition to theater and work in commercials Greene was also featured in the 1976 Elaine May film Mikey and Nicky.

The New York Daily News reported Greene living in Queens, New York in a 1996 interview.[6]

In 2010 filmmaker Crayton Robey screened his making-of The Boys In the Band documentary Making the Boys at the Tribeca Film Festival[7] and claimed in an interview with The Washington Blade that Greene's current whereabouts remain unknown.[8] In fact, Greene has worked as an acting teacher since the 1980s.[9]
