Reddick (who studied classical music at the University of Rochester’s Eastman School of Music and attended the Yale School of Drama), received a 2021 SAG Award nomination for his role in the film One Night in Miami. He is survived by his wife, Stephanie, and a daughter and son.

Reddick’s death comes two years after his co-star Michael K. Williams (who played Omar on The Wire) died of a drug overdose. Last year, four people were charged with allegedly selling drugs that Williams had taken before her death.
