Lance Reddick, the actor best known for playing officer Cedric Daniels in HBO’s The Wire, has died. The actor was only 60 years old. According to TMZ, Reddick, who lived in  Studio City, Los Angeles, was found unresponsive in his home around 9:30 AM on Friday. Cause of death is still unknown, but TMZ is reporting that it seems like he died from natural causes. One of the things that makes the death so startling is that Reddick is one of the stars of John Wick: Chapter 4, which is releasing on May 27, 2023. In fact Reddick, who has been doing a ton of press for the movie, was scheduled to appear on the Kelly Clarkson show this upcoming week. An interesting wrinkle is the fact that Reddick skipped out on the official John Wick: Chapter 4 premiere that occurred earlier this week, instead posting a video at home with his dogs. Although Reddick was a well-trained actor (he got his MFA from Yale) with reoccurring roles in OZ, Law & Order: Special Victims Unit, Fringe, and Bosch, Reddick is best know for being one of the steady hands in The Wire, where he played the ambitious and savvy Daniels for the entire show. More recently, he has had appearances in Godzilla vs. Kong, One Night in Miami…, and the entire John Wick series. 

He will also play the Greek god Zeus in an upcoming Disney+ series called Percy Jackson and the Olympians. And he will be appearing in the new White Men Can’t Jump movie and John Wick spinoff, Ballerina.
