Definitive Edition

Original Version

"Old" Reece is a minor character in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas.


He runs his own barber's shop, Reece's Hair & Facial Studio in Idlewood, Los Santos. He has known the Johnson family for a number of years, evident by his memories of Carl Johnson's childhood and casual and relaxed attitude toward him. According to Ryder, Reece suffers from Alzheimer's disease, as Ryder claims Reece "popped his membrane years ago".

Old Reece also apparently knows Big Smoke, as he asks Carl to tell Big Smoke to get a cut, despite the fact that Big Smoke is bald.

Mission Appearances

Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas


  • Old Reece bears a strong resemblance to Morgan Freeman. Interestingly, Freeman's father was also a barber.
  • Old Reece is the only character with a unique model (not counting girlfriends) that can be met while not on a mission. He can also be encountered in Vigilante missions.
  • In the Beta version of GTA: San Andreas, Reece had a slightly different appearance and didn't wear glasses. This can be seen in a short video on the official GTA San Andreas website.
  • In Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas - The Definitive Edition, Old Reece initially appeared to be significantly younger compared to his original version. His character model was later revamped to appear more elderly in a later title update.
