He is a subtle comedian hiding in the body of a conventionally gorgeous movie star. Ryan was a failure in his high school drama class unlike most actors who caught the acting bug in high school. Coming from a background where home made him very sensitive, Reynolds found acting a way to positively channel his vulnerability.

James Chester Reynolds (father)
Date of Birth: August 3, 1941
Date of Death: October 25, 2015 (age 74)
Zodiac Sign: Leo
Jim as he is fondly called was a food wholesaler, former cop, boxer and full-time landmine. He was diagnosed in 1995 to have Parkinson’s disease but told no one about it. The Woman in Gold (2015) star says his father comes from a very prideful generation where t is a ‘taboo’ for men to show emotions. Papa Reynolds only mentioned it once or twice and chose to rather live in denial. The complicated James-Ryan relationship was not the typical one you see in sitcoms as they were never so close. The disease brought the whole family together though under adversity and they all found their own version of peaceful closure.
The Green Lantern (2011) co-star was very particular about coming to his dad’s rescue and so was the rest of their family. They became active participants in the Michael J. Fox’s foundation that was committed to research about the disease. No cure was found unfortunately and Jim died at the age of 74 after a 20 year battle with Parkinson’s disease. He died in the hospital surrounded by his sons and wife. Jim is survived by his loving wife, four boys and grandkids. Ryan even named his first child, a girl after his dad James.
