Emmy® Award-winner Andre Braugher returns to television this fall as Marcus Chaplin, captain of the Colorado submarine.
One of Hollywood’s most respected actors, Braugher crosses over from television to film to theatre with ease. Most recently he starred on the series “Men of a Certain Age,” receiving Emmy® Award nominations in 2011 and 2010.
In 2010 Braugher co-starred in the feature film “Salt,” opposite Angelina Jolie for director Phillip Noyce. Prior to that he co-starred in “Passengers,” with Anne Hathaway, the Frank Darabont film “The Mist,” based on the novel by Stephen King, and “Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer.” He also starred in the sci-fi miniseries “The Andromeda Strain,” alongside Benjamin Bratt and Eric McCormack.
In 2006 Braugher won an Emmy® Award for Outstanding Performance by a Lead Actor in a Miniseries and a Golden Globe Award nomination for his starring role in the miniseries “Thief.” In 2004 he starred in the original four-hour miniseries “Salem’s Lot,” based on the best-selling novel by Stephen King. Prior to that, he starred in the original cable film “A Soldier’s Girl.” In 2002 he starred in the critically acclaimed series “Hack,” opposite David Morse, and in the TV movie “10,000 Black Men Named George,” with Charles Dutton and Mario Van Peebles for director Robert Townsend. Braugher served as executive producer on the film and received an NAACP Award nomination for his role as A. Philip Randolph.
In 2000-01, Braugher starred in the critically acclaimed ABC drama series “Gideon’s Crossing,” receiving an Emmy® Award nomination and a Golden Globe Award nomination for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series for his role as Dr. Ben Gideon. In 1999 he made his directorial debut with a vignette for the cable trilogy “Love Songs,” in which he also starred, and starred in the telefilm “Passing Glory,” for director Steve James (“Hoop Dreams”), garnering critical acclaim for his performance.
But it is his riveting portrayal of Detective Frank Pembleton on the series “Homicide: Life on the Street” (1992-98) that brought Braugher breakout success and awards – winning an Emmy® Award (1998), plus two Television Critics Association Awards (1998 and 1997) for Best Actor in a Drama Series. He also received an Emmy nomination in 1996 for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Miniseries for his work in the Peabody Award-winning production of “The Tuskeegee Airmen.”
Other television credits include reprising his Emmy-winning role as Detective Frank Pembleton in the two-hour special “Homicide: The Movie”; the title role in “The Court-Martial of Jackie Robinson”; “Somebody Has to Shoot the Picture”; and “Murder in Mississippi.” He began his television career as the late Telly Savalas’ sidekick in television movies based on the original “Kojak” series.
A versatile performer, Braugher has appeared on stage with the New York Shakespeare Festival in “Measure for Measure,” “Twelfth Night,” in the title role of “Henry V,” which earned him an Obie Award, and this summer in “As You Like It.” At Joseph Papp’s Public Theater, he performed in “The Way of the World” and in Shakespeare’s “Richard II” and “Coriolanus.” He played Iago in the Folger Shakespeare Festival production of “Othello” and performed the title role in “Macbeth” for the Philadelphia Drama Guild.
