Perhaps best known for his riveting portrayal of Detective Frank Pembleton on the NBC series Homicide: Life on the Street, Emmy Award winner ANDRE BRAUGHER (Satch DeLeon) crosses over from television to film to theatre with great ease.

After completing his final season on Homicide…, Braugher has worked continuously in both mediums. Audiences first saw him star in a radically different role - a serene angel - in the feature film City of Angels, opposite Nicolas Cage, Meg Ryan and Dennis Franz. Following that, he completed a starring role opposite Alec Baldwin in the independent film Thick As Thieves, which recently premiered at the Sundance Film Festival to rave reviews.

Braugher then made his directorial debut with one vignette of the Showtime trilogy Love Songs, which recently aired on the cable network. He then starred in the TNT production of Passing Glory for director Steve James (Hoop Dreams) and Braugher garnered some of the best reviews of his career.

Most recently, he joined an ensemble cast including Jeff Daniels, Gary Sinise, Joan Allen and Anna Paquin in director Jim Stern's All The Rage, and has completed his work on director Bruce Paltrow's Duets, starring Gwyneth Paltrow.

Braugher's notable feature film credits also include the Academy Award®-winning Glory; Primal Fear, which marked his first collaboration with Frequency director Gregory Hoblit; and Spike Lee's acclaimed Get on the Bus.

His work on television continues to be recognized by critics, audiences and his peers. In addition to his second Emmy Award nomination for his portrayal of Homicide's Det. Pembleton, Braugher received a nomination for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Miniseries for his work in the Peabody Award-winning HBO production The Tuskegee Airmen. His many other television credits include the title role in The Court Martial of Jackie Robinson, HBO's Everybody Has to Shoot the Picture and NBC's Murder in Mississippi. He began his television career as the late Telly Savalas' sidekick in the telefilms based on the original Kojak series.

Braugher has appeared on stage with the New York Shakespeare Festival in Much Ado About Nothing and King John and, most recently, in the title role of Henry V, which earned him an Obie Award. At Joseph Papp's Public Theater, Braugher performed in The Way of the World and Shakespeare's Richard II, Measure for Measure, Twelfth Night and Coriolanus. He played Iago in the Folger Shakespeare Festival production of Othello and performed Macbeth for the Philadelphia Drama Guild.

Braugher was born and raised in Chicago and earned a B.A. from Stanford University and an M.F.A. from Julliard.
