4:11 PM PST 2/9/2018 by Mike Barnes

The Emmy winner and three-time nominee also played a warden on 'Oz.'

Reg E. Cathey, the eloquent Emmy-winning actor from House of Cards who also was known for his excellent work on The Wire, has died. He was 59. No details of his death were immediately available.

In 2015, Cathey won his Emmy for his portrayal of Freddy Hayes, the owner of a BBQ joint who ends up with a job in the White House, on Netflix's House of Cards in a stretch of three straight years with a nomination. Simon reported Cathey's death on Twitter.

On David Simon's acclaimed drama The Wire, Cathey stood out as newspaperman turned Baltimore politician Norman Wilson, and on another acclaimed HBO series, Tom Fontana's Oz, he was unit manager and warden Martin Querns.

2. No not Freddy!

Fabulous actor. Breakfast at Freddy's Rib Joint was a great little "comic relief" from all the dastardly doings of Frank Underwood.
