One of Hollywood's most respected actors, Emmy® Award-winner ANDRE BRAUGHER (General Hager) is able to cross over from television to film to theatre with ease.

In 1999 Braugher made his directorial debut with one vignette of the Showtime trilogy "Love Songs,” in which he also starred, and he starred in the TNT telefilm "Passing Glory” (1999), for director Steve James ("Hoop Dreams”) garnering critical acclaim for his performance.
