Frank Pembleton in Homicide: Life on the Street which he won multiple awards for. Braugher had a resurgence in popularity when he became a recurring guest character in House playing House's therapist Dr. Darryl Nolan.

He was also a main character on Brooklyn Nine-Nine, where he played The Comically Serious Captain Holt.
