While at Florida State, he roomed with college football broadcaster and analyst Lee Corso, became a brother of the Phi Delta Theta fraternity.
He had hoped to have a career in professional football. These injuries hampered his abilities on the field, after being beaten in coverage for the game-winning touchdown in a 7-0 loss to North Carolina State on October 12, 1957, he decided to give up football. Ending his college football career, Reynolds thought of becoming a police officer. To keep up with his studies, he began taking classes at Palm Beach Junior College in neighboring Lake Park.

After his Broadway debut in Look, We've Come Through, he received favorable reviews for his performance and went on tour with the cast, driving the bus as well as appearing on stage. After the tour, Reynolds returned to New York and enrolled in acting classes, along with Frank Gifford, Carol Lawrence, Red Buttons and Jan Murray.

"It was a lot of technique, moment-to-moment, how to listen, improv."After a botched improvisation in acting class, Reynolds considered returning to Florida, but soon gained a part in a revival of Mister Roberts, in which Charlton Heston played the starring role.
