Andre Braugher dead at 61

Braugher was known for playing police officers throughout his career, which he reflected on in a 2020 Variety cover story. “Cops breaking the law to quote, ‘defend the law,’ is a real terrible slippery slope. It has given license to the breaking of law everywhere, justified it and excused it,” he told the outlet. “That’s something that we’re going to have to collectively address — all cop shows.”

“It’s been an interesting career, but I think it could have been larger,” he added. “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.”
