RIP Lance Reddick


Recommended Posts


NEW YORK (AP) — Lance Reddick, a character actor who specialized in intense, icy and possibly sinister authority figures on TV and film, including “The Wire,” “Fringe” and the “John Wick” franchise, has died. He was 60.

Reddick died “suddenly” Friday morning, his publicist Mia Hansen said in a statement, attributing his death to natural causes. No further details were provided.

Wendell Pierce, Reddick’s co-star on “The Wire” paid tribute on Twitter. “A man of great strength and grace,” he wrote. “As talented a musician as he was an actor. The epitome of class.” “John Wick — Chapter Four” director Chad Stahelski and star Keanu Reeves said they were dedicating the upcoming film to Reddick and were “deeply saddened and heartbroken at the loss.”


Reddick was often put in a suit or a crisp uniform during his career, playing tall, taciturn and elegant men of distinction. He was best known for his role as straight-laced Lt. Cedric Daniels on the hit HBO series “The Wire,” where his character was agonizingly trapped in the messy politics of the Baltimore police department.

Yeah this really sucks.  I've enjoyed his acting since Oz and then The Wire was just amazing.  Loved Fringe and the Wick series.  Also, Bosch on Amazon.  He had a range of acting abilities, could do it all.  I always wanted to watch something he was in.  That recent Resident Evil on Netflix was TERRIBLE but Lance was the only good thing in it and he was great.  RIP.

Heard that he did not make the premiere for John Wick due over that he may not had been feeling well. Could be not just only natural causes. But could had been that over in much more. Nonetheless RIP!

Watched what was supposedly his last video he uploaded hours before his death. He seemed resigned and contemplative in that. But idk. Heart attacks hit hard and fast.
