Two-time Emmy-winning star Andre Braugher, whose career spanned the stage, television and film, has died following a brief illness. He was 61.

Braugher will long be remembered for his role of Detective Frank Pembleton in the mid-late 1990s drama series classic “Homicide: Life on the Street” and his more recent work as Captain Raymond Holt in comedy series “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” from 2013-2021.

Braugher first came to notice on film in a key role alongside Matthew Broderick and Denzel Washington in Ed Zwick’s “Glory” in 1989, the same year he starred in a series of “Kojak” telemovies.

That led to consistent work for the actor for the past three-and-a-half decades with supporting roles in films like “Primal Fear,” “The Mist,” “Frequency,” “Poseidon,” “Salt,” “Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer,” “City of Angels,” “Striking Distance,” and “The Gambler”.

His TV work was even more prolific. Along with those aforementioned two regular roles he also starred in series like “Men of a Certain Age,” “Hack,” “Last Resort,” “Gideon’s Crossing,” “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit,” “Thief,” “BoJack Horseman” and mini-series like “The Andromeda Strain” and “Salem’s Lot”.

He also starred in a number of acclaimed telemovies like “The Tuskegee Airmen,” “Passing Glory,” “The Court-Martial of Jackie Robinson,” “10,000 Black Men Named George” and “Soldier’s Girl”. He was most recently seen as the flamboyant Ri’Chard Lane in “The Good Fight”.

Braugher leaves behind his wife, actress Ami Brabson, and sons Michael, Isaiah and John Wesley, as well as his brother Charles Jennings and his mother Sally Braugher.
