Today Hollywood mourns the loss of actor Lance Reddick, who was perhaps best known for his roles in the “John Wick” franchise and HBO’s “The Wire.”
This is a developing story, and the circumstances of his death are not yet available. However, police officers reportedly told TMZ that Reddick’s body was found in his Studio City, Calif., home at approximately 9:30 a.m. Friday.
Reddick was 60 years old. Early reports note that Reddick died of “natural” causes, and foul play is not suspected.
Notably, Reddick did not appear at the premiere of “John Wick 4.” The popular “Wick” franchise debuted its fourth movie in New York City on Wednesday evening.
Reddick played hotel manager Charon in the “John Wick” movies. Before that, Reddick played Cedrick Daniels, a police officer in HBO’s “The Wire.”
The New York Post noted that the Baltimore native “also starred in “Bosch,” “Lost” and “Oz.”
In an interview with IMDb, Reddick noted how much he enjoyed his role in the “John Wick” films. He said: “The character was just the kind of character that I never got to play. Ever since ‘The Wire,’ I’ve played a lot of intimidating authority figures that talk a lot, so to play this kind of quintessential servant whose very taciturn, I found fascinating.”
Reddick was on board to star in “White Men Can’t Jump” and “Shirley” later this year as well as reprising his role as Charon in the spin-off “Ballerina.”
