Following the news of actor Reg E. Cathey's death on Friday, Hollywood has been quick to respond on Twitter to share condolences and fond memories.

He was raised in West Germany. His final film role was in writer-director Sebastián Silva's forthcoming movie Tyrel, which premiered at Sundance Film Festival on January 20.

Reg Cathey was my friend and my wife's friend and a great actor.

After Homicide: Life on the Street, he was cast in David Simon's The Corner, along with movies such as American Psycho, Pootie Tang and Head of State. Cathey's career began on the series Square One, a mathematics based educational children's show.

House of Cards co-creator Beau Willimon also paid tribute to Cathey, describing him as "brimming with life force, generosity, humor, gravitas and a fountain of talent". His other roles included "Oz", "The Fantastic Four", "Se7en", "Outcast", and the documentary "The People Speak". He will be greatly missed.
