Actor Reg Cathey, who ran Freddy's BBQ Joint on the hit Netflix show "House of Cards," and also appeared on "The Wire," has died at 59. "Wire" creator David Simon announced Cathey's death Friday, tweeting: "Reg Cathey, 1958-2018. Not only a fine, masterful actor – but simply one of the most delightful human beings with whom I ever shared some long days on set. On wit alone, he could double any man over and leave him thinking. Reg, your memory is a great blessing."
