On the film side, Reuben co-starred alongside Daniel Day-Lewis and Sally Field in the Steven Spielberg-directed Oscar-nominated film, Lincoln, appeared with Paul Rudd and Tina Fey in Paul Weitz’s Admission, and starred opposite Samuel L. Jackson in Reasonable Doubt.
Reuben received the Lucille Lortel Award for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Play for her role as Condoleezza Rice in David Hare’s play Stuff Happens at the Public Theater in NYC.
In music, Reuben served as a backup singer for Tina Turner in 2000, which led her to record her solo record, Just For You. Her first jazz album, Perchance To Dream, was released in 2015 and her second album, For All We Know, was released on Valentine’s Day 2020.
Reuben, who will continue to be repped by Schreck Rose Dapello Adams Berlin & Dunham, released her first non-fiction book, My Brothers’ Keeper: Two Brothers. Loved. And Lost, an intimate tribute to her two brothers who have passed away, in 2019. She is currently writing her autobiography.
