Polished Edge: Andre Braugher of ‘Brooklyn Nine-Nine’ on Fox
Q: You haven’t done much comedy; why?
A: I haven’t been asked to do it. I don’t have a lot of history of comedy. I like watching my fellow actors, and I think I will learn something. The stakes are the same. There is a comic tone my ear has to be tuned for.
Q: What was your reaction reading the pilot?
A: I read it and fell for it. I am a fan of “Parks and Recreation.” These characters are lovable goofballs. One of my chief complaints (with some shows) is they have an idea and characters can’t progress. You don’t know the characters’ histories. These guys (show’s creators) understand how to create a world. I would have a little more confidence. I looked at the first and fourth seasons of “Parks and Rec,” and I could see how Amy Poehler has grown and changed from someone who cant get a playground made to mayor.
Q: Will your family move from New Jersey to be with you in Los Angeles?
A: I have been working away from my family for 25 years. My (then) girlfriend moved in, and I went to “Glory” for five months, and that has been our pattern for our married life. The only time when we were all together was when I was in Baltimore.
Q: How does the uptight Capt. Ray Holt deal?
A: I’ve got my nemesis. I am looking at larger interests. The precinct is underperforming and filled with gifted and talented detectives that need a little attention.
