Fans mourning Lance Reddick’s sudden passing celebrate his genius ‘Eric André Show’ appearance
The tragic and sudden passing of one of the greatest character actors of all time, Lance Reddick, is incredibly sad and unfortunate. In spite of this, some fans are highlighting a Reddick appearance on The Eric André Show that showcases just how versatile Reddick was as an actor.
We rarely got to see Reddick in comedic mode. He’s more known as the straight-laced and intense Lieutenant Daniels in The Wire, or as Charon in the John Wick franchise. He’s also known to a generation of video game players as Commander Zavala in the Destiny Franchise, Sylens in the Horizon franchise and Martin Hatch in Quantum Break.
These are of course, just a few roles from a career in entertainment, but the Eric André guest-appearance stands out if only because it showcases Reddick’s zanier side.
Here he is giving André what looks like a real jolt.
Here’s another classic, out-of-character bit that doesn’t really need an introduction.
Here’s the whole thing together. Most celebrities who appeared on the show got angry or rattled, not Reddick. This man was a legend and he will be missed.
People were quick to highlight Reddick’s acting chops in the comments as well.
“There’s a scene in Bosch where he tells Titus Welliver’s character to “Get OUT motherf**ker!” and he delivered the line so well that I nearly jumped out of my chair. Very talented actor … I loved him in all his roles. RIP,” one commenter said.
The glasses push!
“I can’t believe it! Lance Reddick’s talent was unmatched, and he always left us in awe. His presence will be forever missed, but his legacy lives on through his unforgettable performances,” someone else said.
Gone too soon. Our deepest condolences to Mr. Reddick’s colleagues, fans, and loved ones.
