The Last Movie Lance Reddick Was In Before He Died

"John Wick" actor Lance Reddick has died. Law enforcement confirmed to TMZ that the actor was found dead at his Studio City home on Friday morning. He was 60. Reddick's career in show business kicked off in the 90s, though it wasn't until his stint on HBO's "The Wire" as Cedric Daniels that he became a household name. Following "The Wire," the actor lent his talents to several intriguing projects, both on the big and small screen. Notable credits include a starring role in J. J. Abrams' sci-fi series "Fringe" and an appearance in Spike Lee's "Oldboy" remake.

The actor's most iconic post-"The Wire" role was in the 2014 action flick "John Wick," which kicked off one of the most popular contemporary action franchises. Reddick starred as Charon, the cool and slick concierge at the Continental hotel in New York. One of the most popular characters from the franchise, Reddick returned for all three sequels, including the soon-to-be-released "Chapter 4."

Prior to the fourth "John Wick" outing, Reddick was seen in "Godzilla vs. Kong" as the director of Monarch, the organization which oversees the beasts of the MonsterVerse. The film saw Reddick reunite with director Adam Wingard, who he previously worked with on 2014's "The Guest." 

"John Wick: Chapter 4," which marks Reddick's first posthumous roles, will be released on March 24 2023. The latest "John Wick" film likely won't be the last time audiences see Charon on the big screen, as Reddick had several films in production prior to his death.

Lance Reddick will appear in the upcoming White Man Can't Jump remake and John Wick spin-off

After "John Wick: Chapter 4" is released, Lance Reddick will be seen in Hulu's remake of "White Men Can't Jump."

Reddick headlines the film alongside rapper Jack Harlow and "Friday Night Lights" actor Sinqua Walls. In an interview with Kyle Meredith, Reddick revealed that he didn't watch the 90s classic starring Wesley Snipes to prep for the remake. "I just knew it was an iconic, kind of, cult hit, but I'd never seen the film," Reddick said. The actor continued by praising the remake's script and emphasis on character. "I just knew that I loved the character ... in addition to being funny, [the film] is really well written and human and poignant. I think it's going to be a great film." The remake will hit Hulu on May 19 2023.

Following the release of "White Men Can't Jump," Reddick will return to the world of "John Wick" as Charon in the franchise's first spin-off: "Ballerina." Details on the Ana de Armas-led action film are slim, though Collider suggests that the film entered post-production in February 2023. It is unclear how large of a role Reddick has in the film and if he completed all of his scenes as Charon. "Ballerina," which takes place between the third and fourth "John Wick" flicks, doesn't currently have a release date.
