Lance Reddick, a prolific actor who gained fame playing a police commander on the Baltimore crime drama “The Wire” and a concierge in the criminal sanctuary known as the Continental Hotel in the “John Wick” movie franchise, died on Friday. He was 60.
His death was confirmed by his publicist, Mia Hansen. No cause was given.
Mr. Reddick was perhaps best known for playing Lt. Cedric Daniels on “The Wire,” the sprawling HBO series that was praised for its realistic and often downbeat depiction of policing, crime, education and other aspects of life in Baltimore, which premiered on June 2, 2002.
Mr. Reddick also appeared on the Fox drama “Fringe” as Phillip Broyles, in the movie “White House Down” as General Caulfield and in the Amazon original series “Bosch.” He also branched out into video games, notably Horizon Zero Dawn and its sequel, and the Destiny franchise.
He is survived by his wife, Stephanie Reddick; a daughter, Yvonne Nicole Reddick; and a son, Christopher Reddick.
