‘The Wire,’ ‘John Wick’ star Lance Reddick dead at 60

“The Wire” star Lance Reddick died Friday, his reps confirmed to Variety. He was 60.

Reddick’s body was discovered at his home in Studio City, Calif., per TMZ, which was the first to report the news.

While his cause of death is unknown at this time, law enforcement sources told the outlet that it “appears to be natural.”

Reddick had been in the midst of a press tour for “John Wick: Chapter 4,” which is set to be released in theaters on March 23, when he died.

He also had an appearance on “The Kelly Clarkson Show” scheduled for next week to talk about reprising his role as Charon.

Reps for the actor did not immediately respond to Page Six’s request for comment.

Just one day before his death, Reddick posted a carousel of photos of himself sitting on a couch at home with his four dogs — instead of attending the latest “John Wick” premiere in New York City.

“On screen and off, it’s no surprise I love spoiling my dogs,” he captioned the post Thursday.
