Andre Braugher, ‘Brooklyn Nine-Nine,’ ‘Homicide: Life on The Street’ Star Dead at 61



Andre Braugher, the two-time Emmy-winning actor known for his roles including Detective Frank Pembleton on “Homicide: Life On The Street” and Captain Raymond Holt on “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” has died.

He was 61.

A rep for the actor told The Post that Braugher passed on Monday after a brief illness.

He is survived by his wife, actress Ami Brabson, and sons Michael, Isaiah, and John Wesley, brother Charles Jennings and his mother Sally Braugher.

Braugher starred alongside Andy Samberg for eight seasons on “Brooklyn Nine-Nine.”

His comedic role won him two Critics Choice Awards and earned him four Emmy Award nods.

The show wrapped in 2021.

Although the show was filmed in Los Angeles, Braugher returned home to New Jersey every weekend to be with his family.

“I made a choice along the way that Ami and those boys were too important to not spend quantity time with,” he told Variety in 2020.

“Both the health crisis and the democracy crisis that we’re going through demonstrate to me that there’s no substance in the bling. The focus on celebrity-ness — it’s not real. So I just chose, in my own way, to sort of drop out.”

He also told the outlet that he was alright with trading family life for never breaking out as a lead actor in his projects.

“It’s been an interesting career, but I think it could have been larger. I think it could have spanned more disciplines: directing, producing, all these other different things. But it would have been at the expense of my own life.”

Braugher’s first-ever film was the Oscar-winning “Glory” in 1989, which told the story of America’s first unit of black soldiers during the Civil War.
