Hollywood is paying tribute to Emmy-winning actor Andre Braugher following his death at the age of 61.

Braugher, who starred “Homicide: Life on the Street” and “Brooklyn Nine-Nine,” died Dec. 12, after a brief illness, his longtime rep, Jennifer Allen, confirmed to ABC News.

Braugher’s “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” co-stars led the tributes, with the likes of Terry Crews, Chelsea Peretti, Joe Lo Truglio and Marc Evan Jackson sharing their fond memories of working with him on the sitcom, which ran for eight seasons from 2013 to 2021.
