Reynolds became tired of his dull, stereotyped roles in the movies and began his move to television in 1959, playing the title role in Pete Kelly's Blues.:826-827 During this series, he developed a close friendship with actor and producer Jack Webb. In 1960–1961, he starred as Sandy Wade on the ABC/Warner Brothers television series The Islanders. He also guest starred in 1961 as Jerry Bolton on the episode “Nobody's Millions” of another ABC/WB drama series, The Roaring 20s. In 1962-1963, Reynolds costarred on ABC's The Gallant Men. He then played Hoodoo Henderson as an adult in 1966's Walt Disney film Follow Me, Boys!. Two years with no acting jobs led Reynolds to enhance his education, and he passed the examinations to become a lawyer specializing in real estate. Reynolds caught his big break co-starring with Efrem Zimbalist, Jr., in another ABC series, the long-running The F.B.I.. Reynolds first made guest appearances in seasons one and two in 1966, before he appeared as series regular Special Agent Tom Colby from 1967 to 1973. He was replaced by actor Shelly Novack for the final season, because the network considered Reynolds, then at the age of forty-one, too old for the part. Still, he managed to make two appearances as Colby in the ninth season (1973–74), which included the final network-aired episode, a rerun of “The Animal,” on September 8, 1974. He also appeared in guest roles in Jack Webb-produced shows such as Dragnet, and in other series like Maverick, Rod Serling’s The Twilight Zone, starring in the episode “The Purple Testament” (Season 1, Episode 19) .
