In Memoriam

Remembering Reg E. Cathey

Reg E. Cathey, star of The Wire, The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks, and Cinemax's Outcast, has passed away at 59. David Simon, who first reported the news, remembered the actor as "simply one of the most delightful human beings with whom I ever shared some long days on set."


He will be greatly missed.
