James Michael Reilly plays Glad Hand in the International Tour of WEST SIDE STORY!  Berlin's major newspaper Tagesspiegel said, "Das schauspielerischen Kabinettstuckchen gelingen daher vor allem den nicht tanzenden Erwachsenen, etwa dem vershwiemelt hochwasserhosigen Anstandswauwau Glad Hand (James Michael Reilly)."  You'd need to know hip Berlin slang to translate that, but I've been told it says something about the acting being successful.


Jim played Detective Sagan on the PERSON OF INTEREST season finale, May 17 on CBS!  It was fascinating to be a part of this amazing new show - which has now been renewed for a second season.


James Michael Reilly's Demo Reel


You may see Jim on a NY Lotto commercial, getting paid to relax.  Ah, the lottery winner's life...


In the fall of 2011, Jim played the sheriff, Heck Tate, in TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD at the Shakespeare Theatre of New Jersey to sold-out houses!  It was the highest-grossing show that STNJ has ever produced.

Jim played James Ahern, a researcher, on the Onion News Network's segment about a terrifying new diet drug!  The job honed his ability to remain deadpan while discussing ridiculous things.

Jim played a doctor on the season 2 premiere of LOUIE, on the FX network!  He was very impressed by Louis C.K.'s improvisational style, and his masterful grasp as director, actor, and writer.
