Lance Reddick, who starred in “The Wire,” “Fringe” and the “John Wick” franchise, has died. He was 60.

The actor died “suddenly” due to natural causes on Friday morning, his publicist Mia Hansen confirmed in a statement to the Associated Press.

Reddick was best known for his leading role as straight-laced Baltimore police lieutenant Cedric Daniels on the hit HBO series “The Wire.” His character headed the narcotics division while contending with corruption within the department.

Wendell Pierce, one of Reddick’s co-stars on The Wire, paid tribute on Twitter. Pierce wrote:

A man of great strength and grace. As talented a musician as he was an actor. The epitome of class. An sudden unexpected sharp painful grief for our artistic family. An unimaginable suffering for his personal family and loved ones. Godspeed my friend. You made your mark here. RIP

Reddick just posted the following 15-second video to his Twitter account on Wednesday, two days ago.

He smiles and sings, “And the beat goes on…” as a dog is heard yipping in the background. It is is final personal Twitter post.

David Simon, producer of The Wire, tweeted, “Consummate professional, devoted collaborator, lovely and gentle man, loyal friend. Could go on, but no, I can’t go on. This is gutting. And way, way, way too soon.”

Several fans are posting video clips on social media from Reddick’s movies:
