The Prognosis: Praise be to J.J. Abrams. In 2008, Reddick moved from The Wire to Abrams' sci-fi procedural Fringe, on Fox, leading to steady work on a show with a dedicated cult following. Fringe could have easily gone the way of Firefly, but it hung on, concluding just a few weeks ago after five beloved seasons. Now, Reddick has to make lightning strike for a third time. No pressure.
