Personal Quote:

Back when we were in our 20s I would sometimes get fan mail saying that they saw me in such and such play some years back and that my name then was Rhodes Reason and why did I change it to Rex. Or people would think we were twins. -- RR, on his resemblance to younger brother Rhodes Reason See more »

Trivia:

He and his sci-fi co-star Jeff Morrow from This Island Earth (1955) and The Creature Walks Among Us (1956) reunited on a 1962 episode of Perry Mason (1957) entitled "The Case of the Ancient Romeo", playing Shakespearean actors on stage. Rex's character is defended by the famed attorney (Raymond Burr)) for Morrow's murder by a sword that was used between them in a "Romeo and Juliet" fencing scene. See more »
