Reginald E. Cathey, who had huge roles in “House of Cards” and “The Wire,” has died … TMZ has learned.

The beloved actor passed away at his home in New York, surrounded by friends and family. We’re told he’d been battling lung cancer.

He also famously played the mayor’s aide, Norman Wilson, on several seasons of “The Wire.”

He was a hard working character actor in Hollywood for more than 30 years with dozens of roles on TV and in movies … including “Oz,” ‘Law & Order: SVU,’ ‘Fantastic Four,’ “The Mask” and “S.W.A.T.”

Reg was extremely close to ‘Wire’ creator David Simon — he’s the only actor Simon hired to work on all of his TV shows. He posted memories of his friend.
