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 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.
He earned a SAG Award nomination in 2021 as part of the ensemble for Regina King’s film “One Night in Miami.”
