Reynaldo Rey Dead At 75

Comedic actor Reynaldo Rey, well-known for his roles in many Black classics, died on Thursday due to complications from a stroke he suffered last year. He was 75 years old. Via TMZ:

Reynaldo Rey, longtime comedian and character actor, died early Thursday morning in Los Angeles … TMZ has learned.

Rey was famous for his movie roles in “Friday,” “White Men Can’t Jump,” and “Harlem Nights.” He also appeared in tons of TV shows going back to the 80s … such as “The Bernie Mac Show,” “The Wayans Bros.,” “227,” and “Sanford.”

His manager tells us Rey passed away in a hospital. He suffered a stroke last year … and started suffering complications in January. He’d checked into the hospital for treatment.

We’re told his wife was at his side when he died.

Reynaldo was 75 years old … and funny as hell as Red’s dad in “Friday.” R.I.P.

So sad! May he rest in peace.
