<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">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. <a href="https://t.co/OHEUbAhTg0">pic.twitter.com/OHEUbAhTg0</a></p>&mdash; David Simon (@AoDespair) <a href="https://twitter.com/AoDespair/status/962104269385191424?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">February 9, 2018</a></blockquote>
