Most people who have just encountered him recently may know him best as his role as Freddy Hayes, the guy that owned the barbecue shop on House Of Cards. I remember Reg E. Cathey most for his role as Norman Wilson on “The Wire.” No matter which role you noticed him in first, the thing is…… you noticed him. In the world of acting, being capable of standing out in any role is always a good thing.



Cathey had many notable roles in multiple movies and tv shows in his career, including movies:

  • Clear And Present Danger (1994)
  • Se7en (1995)
  • S.W.A.T (2003)
  • Born On The Fourth Of July (1989)
  • Fantastic Four (2015)


And many many others. The list is much too long to name them all. Cathey also appeared in many television shows. Including:


  • Spenser: For Hire (1987)
  • Star Trek: The Next Generation (1993)
  • Roc (1994)
  • ER (1996)
  • The Corner (2000)
  • OZ (2000-2003)


And many many more. Once again, way too many to list. Cathey was 59-years old. There have been no details on his cause of death at this time.


R.I.P Reg E. Cathey you will be missed.
