“The Wire” actor Lance Reddick has died at the age of 60.
TMZ reports Reddick was found dead at his Studio City, California, home on Friday morning.
While his cause of death has not been determined, law enforcement so far believes his death was natural.
At the time of his death, Reddick had been promoting his role in “John Wick: Chapter 4.”
Though he didn’t attend the NYC premiere this week, he did post a pic of himself at home with his dogs Wednesday. He wrote on Instagram, “On screen and off, it's no surprise I love spoiling my dogs. @officialhardrock makes it easy with a full line of @johnwickmovie dog swag available at @hardrockhotels Unleashed locations, and a very special #NationalPuppyDay event at @hardrockhotelnyc to support @animalleague.”
