André Braugher has died at the age of 61 following a short illness.

André Braugher was a highly respected actor known for his roles in several TV series and films, including Homicide: Life on the Street, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Men of a Certain Age, and recently, The Good Fight.

Comic book fans will also know the actor for having a role in Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer and for voicing Darkseid in Superman/Batman: Apocalypse.

He received critical acclaim and multiple awards for his performances, including two Emmys for his role as Detective Frank Pembleton in Homicide: Life on the Street.

Braugher had an extensive career in both television and film, with notable roles in shows like Hack, Gideon’s Crossing, and The Good Fight. His filmography includes appearances in movies such as Glory, Frequency, and The Mist.

Recently he was filming and starring in Netflix’s The Residence which was forced to shut down due to the strikes and only filmed four episodes. André Braugher played White House Chief Usher A.B. Wynter with the plot following a wildly eccentric detective (Uzo Aduba) who investigates 157 suspects attending a State Dinner after a body is found.

He was born in Chicago in 1962, attended prestigious universities, and initially considered a career in medicine before pursuing acting. Braugher was married to actress Ami Brabson, had three sons, and was involved in charitable work, including supporting the Classical Theatre of Harlem.

Colleagues and industry insiders praised Braugher’s acting prowess, citing his ability to convey depth and emotion, often through subtle expressions and gestures.

“Can’t believe you’re gone so soon. I’m honored to have known you, laughed with you, worked with you and shared 8 glorious years watching your irreplaceable talent,” Terry Crews wrote on Instagram who also starred in the comedy Brooklyn Nine-Nine. “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.”
