Lance Reddick is an American theater, film and TV actor, born in Baltimore, Maryland. He starred in The Wire as Cedric Daniels, appeared in Oz as Detective Johnny Basil and appeared in the fourth and fifth seasons of Lost. He now has a prominent role in Fringe. Previously Reddick also starred in two episodes of Law & Order. He also appeared in the 2003 Jay-Z/Beyoncé "`03 Bonnie & Clyde" video as the lead police officer. Reddick joined ABC`s hit series Lost in 2008. Reddick plays Matthew Abaddon, a ruthless corporate recruiter, in multiple episodes. He was the third of four actors from Oz to star in the drama (along with Harold Perrineau, Ken Leung and Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje). Producers Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse have said that they were interested in Reddick for the part of Mr. Eko but he was unavailable due to filming The Wire so they approached Akinnuoye-Agbaje instead. Reddick brings his characteristic focus and intensity to his roles.
In early 2008 he was cast in a key role for the pilot of Fringe in which fellow Oz actor Kirk Acevedo also has a regular role. Reddick plays Phillip Broyles, the head of a special government agency that investigates paranormal activities. Reddick described the hard-driving character as "a real ass. But he`s also one of the good guys." Like Lost, Fringe is co-created and produced by J.J. Abrams. There has been some doubt as to whether Reddick would be able to appear in both Lost and Fringe in the 2008-09 television season. However, Abrams stated that while being a series regular on Fringe, he would be able to do episodes of Lost whenever required. He has also appeared in a 2007 Cadillac TV advertisement.
