Lance Reddick dead at 60



Damn, shocked by this news.

He's mostly known for TV with The Wire, Fringe and Bosch as some examples, but he has done movies, especially now with John Wick 4 coming out.

No! Holy cow, he is a phenomenal actor. 60 is way too damn young. RIP.

I really liked him as an actor, especially the way he talked, he really had a cool accentuation.

Re: Lance Reddick dead at 60

We probably won't know his official cause of death for weeks, but with him dying suddenly like this, chances are it's a heart attack or stroke.

Still sad with him dying so suddenly. He was doing press junkets for John Wick even up to this week.

Wow, sad news. Was watching a Wire video on YouTube when I got the news alert.

Re: Lance Reddick dead at 60

Damn! When I saw the thread title, I thought, “that name sounds vaguely familiar” then when I clicked the thread and saw his picture I thought, “No! I love that dude!”

Sad news. I’m sorry to hear he died. I enjoyed him in everything I saw him in.

Wow, stunned to hear this. Enjoyed watching him in The Wire and Bosch. He had quite a commanding presence. 60 is much too young. Condolences to all those who were closest to him.

Re: Lance Reddick dead at 60

Damn, this one hurts.

He was one of those character actors who was great in whatever he was in, whether it was Fringe, Lost, John Wick, American Horror Story, or Young Sheldon.

Always hoped he'd pop up in Star Trek or Star Wars at some point.

Wasn't he going to be a big part of the Continental spin off? Still sad.

Re: Lance Reddick dead at 60

This was Reddick's final post on his Twitter account a couple of days ago. He looked fine. But I know sudden unexpected problems can happen. Man still sucks.




Looks like Reddick has at least 5 completed projects in the can that have yet to come out including the Ballerina John Wick spin-off and the Hulu reboot of White Man Can't Jump.

Damn, that sucks. I am nearing the end of a Fringe rewatch--he's great in that and everything else he's done.

He also did significant voice work in the Horizon video games. Honestly he’s so distinctive that he took me out of the game a bit.

I only knew him from John Wick, but he was so good. Especially when he started kicking ass in 3. He always looked so regal. I would have liked to see him in The Continental, but it’s just too bad.

I haven’t finished Forbidden West yet, but I would think/hope he’d be in the third one.

Great talent.

I remember him from Fringe. Sucks when someone dies so young. He'll be sorely missed! RIP Lance...

Re: Lance Reddick dead at 60

This is so sad. Whenever he popped up in anything, my wife and I would yell "It's MOTHERFUCKING BROYLES" as we're big fans of his "Fringe" character. RIP to a fantastic actor.

I was shocked to hear this. He always brought a gravitas to his roles. He will be missed. I will always remember how he would say liaison in the Fringe pilot. He was great voice actor in the Horizon video games too.

The hell? This is terrible news. 60 is too soon. He was great in everything I ever saw him in. Always hoped he'd get bigger and better roles.
