As stated above, Reddick is set to reprise his recurring role as fan-favorite character Charon in the upcoming John Wick: Chapter 4, set to arrive in theaters starting next week. Many also know him of course as BPD lieutenant Cedric Daniels in the era-defining HBO series The Wire, which aired from 2002 to 2008. Fun fact: in the show’s full 60-episode run, Reddick appears the most out of any character with an impressive clock-in time of 58 episodes.

Rest in peace, Lance Reddick. We will miss your great work in the world of Hollywood, and will never forget the legacy you leave behind. Please keep his family and loved ones in your prayers.
