One of the more intense actors on television is prepared to show his lighter side.
Andre Braugher, fresh off a critically-acclaimed albeit ratings-challenged run on Last Resort, has been cast on one of the more anticipated comedies of the new pilot season.
The actor will portray Captain Holt on a single-camera Fox comedy from Mike Schur. It stars Andy Samberg as one of a diverse group of detectives in New York, with Braughter's 30-year veteran dead set on not messing up his first command.
In other exciting pilot casting news:
- Josh Holloway will return to television in CBS' Intelligence.
- Kim Raver will lead the NCIS: Los Angeles spinoff.
- Maggie Lawson will star opposite James Caan on an ABC sitcom, playing a recently-divorced lawyer who moves in with her father.
