Andre Braugher, ‘Brooklyn Nine-Nine’ actor, dies aged 61

Andre Braugher, the Emmy-winning actor best known for his roles on the series ‘Homicide: Life on The Street’ and ‘Brooklyn 99,’ died on December 11 after a brief illness. He was 61.

Braugher's publicist Jennifer Allen confirmed his death to the trade publication Variety.

Braugher’s portrayal of Detective Frank Pembleton in ‘Homicide: Life on the Street’ earned him critical acclaim, including an Emmy for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series in 1998.

Braugher gained widespread recognition for his role as Captain Raymond Holt in ‘Brooklyn Nine-Nine,’ where his deadpan delivery and nuanced portrayal of the precinct's captain garnered immense popularity. His performance earned him several nominations and awards, including two Critics Choice Awards and multiple Emmy nominations for Best Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series.

In addition to these roles, Braugher's recent work includes playing Dean Baquet in ‘She Said,’ a drama depicting the New York Times' coverage of the Harvey Weinstein scandal. He also appeared as Ri’Chard Lane, a charismatic lawyer, in the final season of ‘The Good Fight’ alongside Christine Baranski and Audra McDonald.

His versatility and ability to bring depth to his characters have solidified his reputation as a highly respected actor in the entertainment industry.

In a post on Instagram, Braugher’s ‘Brooklyn Nine-Nine’ co-star Terry Crews wrote: ‘I’m honored to have known you, laughed with you, worked with you and shared 8 glorious years watching your irreplaceable talent. This hurts.’

‘You left us too soon. You taught me so much. I will be forever grateful for the experience of knowing you. Thank you for your wisdom, your advice, your kindness and your friendship. Deepest condolences to your wife and family in this difficult time. You showed me what a life well lived looks like,’ he added.

Prentice Penny, the showrunner of Insecure who also wrote for Brooklyn Nine-Nine, shared memories of Braugher on set, including one of Penny, Crews and Braugher talking on set – ‘and then when a white person would walk by, he’d look serious again. He then leaned in and said ‘Gotta keep ‘em on they toes.’’
