DJ EebsDJ Eebs Moderator, Administrator admin
Lance Reddick, an actor who was a high point of virtually everything he appeared in, from the Wire to Destiny to John Wick to the fucking Eric Andre show, has died at age 60

    Figured that since this news has taken over, like, four threads, he more than deserves his own thread.

    He's been a huge and iconic part of Destiny/Destiny 2, loves the game and was loved by the fanbase so this is a huge blow.

    Bet there's a bunch of Bungie staff who are hurting today having befriended him.

    I've seen this story about Lance and Keanu going around, and it is very lovely

    And also, Austin Walker's commentary on this story made me cry


    This is technically a story about Keanu, but it hits so hard today anyway bc it pulls into focus that despite being a celebrity, Reddick was not some abstract being, but a particular person, who like us wants validation and friendship, and who was in this moment lucky to be loved

    Dude was the secret MVP of whatever he was in, no matter the property. Destiny? MVP. The Guest? MVP. That shitty Netflix Resident Evil show? MV-goddamn-P.

    Hearing his voice or seeing his face was always a joy for me.

    Fuck me, seeing him in John Wick Chapter 4 next week is going to be bittersweet.

    Definitely deserves his own thread. It’s going to make John Wick 4 very bittersweet to watch

    Ah fuck, this sucks

    The wife and I watch Fringe all the way through nearly every year, he was so good in that show with the multiple roles as an ally and antagonist.

    I know that with digital releases, they'll be able to update the movie to add a "Dedicated to" into it.

    Holy shit. I didn't see the main things he's remembered for... but when I saw Charon listed, I was like.. fuck. And then Orca mentioned he played Sylens in the Horizon games (I still have only played the first) and... FUCCK.

    Damn. Everything points at him being an amazingly cool guy.

    as someone who works at Bungie and is in a bunch of various company chats, yeah... Yeah, people are feeling pretty low right now

    I binged Bosch last summer, because I'm a dad, and Reddick just tears that show to pieces he's so good. Damn this sucks.

    This hurts, calling his presence in anything he was in 'commanding' would be to sell him short. Rest in peace to a legend.

    The best part about Lance Reddick is that he was able to make fun of himself. He played the most serious character in most things and he knew that and had a great sense of humor about it

    Apparently he played a warlock in Destiny, despite voicing Zavala, which seems like pretty good proof of good taste.

    FYI, I found out there's an Strike emblem in D2 called Push Together that's themed after Zavala's armor. Thought I'd put that out there for anyone who'd be interested in wearing it for a while like I did.

    I have to admit when I found out about his passing, I thought it was Lance Henrikson and I was like "yeah he's had a good run".

    But this sucks, too fucking soon.

    I’ve been watching law and order criminal intent to fall asleep to lately, I put on a few episodes a night before I go to bed. Started up today and of all the episodes it’s one with Lance Reddick in it. So damn weird

    Today I learned that Lance Reddick loved Destiny so much he had a VO booth installed in his home so he could do the lines for the game.

    During early 2020 he was recording voice lines in his closet, even.
