The respected thespian took home an Emmy for Outstanding Guest Actor in a Drama Series for House of Cards in 2015.

Following the news of Cathey's shocking passing, Marvel Television released a statement calling it "an honor" to both work with him and know him. "Rest In Peace, Reg", he added.

Cathey, an Emmy-winning actor known for his work on Netflix's House of Cards and HBO's The Wire, has died at the age of 59. His death was announced Friday night by David Simon, the creator of The Wire, who acknowledged the award victor via Twitter.

Fans of The Wire knew Cathey as the political operative, Norman Wilson. Cathey was the only star to appear on all of Simon's television shows, TMZ noted.

Simone shared, "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". "We lost a masterful actor, a sonorous voice, a great colleague, and a kind friend", Pierce tweeted.

"On wit alone, he could double any man over and leave him thinking", Simon wrote. I'm hard pressed to remember a moment of anger.

Actor Samuel L. Jackson also paid tribute to Cathey, too: "Shattered at the loss of Reg E Cathey". According to his profile on the Internet Movie Database, he was best known for films like Fantastic Four, Tank Girl, S.W.A.T and The Mask.
