In HBO’s hit crime thriller The Wire, Reddick played Baltimore police lieutenant Cedric Daniels. Initially, he auditioned for the parts of Bubbles and Bunk Moreland. It was a rare prestige show with a predominantly black cast at a period when television was predominantly white.

Reddick’s television credits include Oz, Lost, Bosch, and a lead part in the sci-fi drama Fringe. Before his death, he also recorded the role of Zeus for the upcoming Percy Jackson TV adaptation.

Reddick’s filmography includes White House Down, Sylvie’s Love, Brother to Brother, and a part in the blockbuster John Wick franchise. In addition to his posthumous performance in the fourth film, he is thought to have shot a part in the spin-off Ballerina, directed by Ana de Armas. In addition, he will appear in the forthcoming remake of White Men Can’t Jump.

Reddick is survived by his wife, Stephanie, and children, Yvonne Nicole and Christopher.
