Please give Andre Braugher a comedy Emmy already. Please? We’re not going to ask so nicely next year. On Tuesday’s “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” season finale, Dets.

When the TV series Brooklyn Nine-Nine first hit the scene, what was initially most impressive was the star-studded cast including Andre Braugher, Andy Samberg, Terry Crews and more. But you cannot mention the show without the image of bombshell, Stephanie Beatriz, permeating your mind. Beatriz plays the role of Detective Rosa Diaz. Even when she was on Modern Family, Diaz has captivated the male audience. As with most celebrities, there are always some hidden facts that most of their fans are completely oblivious to. Well, Beatriz is no different in that regard. Following are five things you probably did not

I keep forgetting how dumb the average television viewer is. It’s the only thing to explain why a show like Brooklyn Nine Nine would even be considered to be on the chopping block. Luckily Fox didn’t have to pull the plug on the comedy cop series and granted it a 5th season. Brooklyn Nine Nine is still one of the best comedies on television and I’m 100% convinced the only reason more people don’t watch it is because they don’t “get it.” Captain Holt (Andre Braugher) might be my favorite character on television, period. But like I said, the average

The video features the actors and co-creators discussing the progression of the show from the pilot all the way up to the current season. Co-creator and executive producer Dan Goor explains how the tone of the show was set from the very beginning and stemmed from the great comedic chemistry between Samberg and Braugher. Braugher elaborated that the central force behind the show is the family-like quality of the characters.
“Like any family, they’re discovering their strengths and weaknesses and how strong they are when they depend upon each other,” Braugher said.
Many actors felt the show’s strength came through in its ability to meld heartfelt themes with ridiculous, slapstick humor.
The show, which premiered in 2013, follows the detectives of the fictional 99th precinct of the New York City Police »

HBO’s “Girls” has maintained a modest presence at the Emmys ever since the program’s big coming-out in 2012 and 2013, when it scooped up two nominations in a row for outstanding comedy series. Adam Driver has shown up consistently in the supporting actor category, while guest stars like Gaby Hoffman and Peter Scolari have been recognized as well. But the show has mostly struggled to reach those early heights again.
That could change with the sixth and final season, which has made for the richest portrait of Lena Dunham’s world yet.
You may well have bailed by now, whether the creator’s outsized activist footprint overshadowed the series, or her various characters’ descent into their own navels made it seem like there was no light at the end of the tunnel. But it’s time to catch up. Things were already on the upswing with season five, and now, with »

Much like the actual cast, the cops of “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” do an excellent job. Perhaps a little too good. Detective Jake Peralta’s (Andy Samberg) rag-tag crew is so proficient, as a matter of fact, that the crime rate in their borough is down significantly, Captain Holt (Andre Braugher) tells the team in Tuesday’s spring premiere. That earns a well-deserved round of applause from the room — but it’s not all positive. With fewer criminal activities, the borough of Brooklyn will be shuttering down one of its precincts for good, Holt warns. His Nine-Nine feels pretty good about its »

Still Eligible: Yes.
Last year saw two “Veep” supporting actors land nods, but let’s see if we can get a few more in 2017. In addition to Tony Hale (who’s won twice in the past four years) and Matt Walsh (who snagged his first nod in 2016), Timothy Simons, Kevin Dunn, and Gary Cole are all more than deserving of some TV Academy love. Sure, that would take up five of the six slots, but can we really argue against any of them?
Those willing to try include last year’s winner Louie Anderson, who returns stronger than ever »

Brooklyn Nine-Nine's stellar cast is about to get even better: geek icon and Firefly star Nathan Fillion has signed up for a guest spot alongside Andy Samberg, Stephanie Beatriz, Melissa Fumero, Andre Braugher, Chelsea Peretti, Terry Crews, Joe Lo Truglio and all the rest.

Entertainment Weekly broke the news, reporting that The mighty Mr Fillion will play Mark Devereaux, "star of a Law & Order-y show titled Serve & Protect."
He'll factor into the show as Jake and Rosa "investigate a crime that occurred on the Serve & Protect set, [and] Mark wants to assist the detectives by drawing on his decade of experience playing a detective."
Fans of Castle will see how this is a bit of a riff on his novelist-turned-crime-fighter performance therein.

Welcome back to another edition of Fantasy Fridays here at Lrm, where two real-life best friends put their heads together and pretend to be studio execs as they try to cast and hire other pertinent talent for upcoming geek properties.
This week, we turn our attention towards Green Lantern Corps, since there were recent developments on that front recently. The film recently snagged David S. Goyer (The Dark Knight, Blade) and Justin Rhodes (Grassroots) to write the script, with DC Chief Creative Officer Geoff Johns producing and overseeing the project. There's also been talk that it'll have a sort of Lethal Weapon vibe to it, and that it'll sort of base itself off of the Sinestro Corps Wars.
Naturally, this news got all of us here at Lrm talking, »

With Brooklyn Nine-Nine’s much anticipated fourth season finally airing on E4, spare a thought for those who have never experienced the joys of this quick-witted, warm hearted cop comedy series. It’s hard to imagine a world without the Die Hard-loving, authority challenging Jake Peralta (Andy Samberg) or his food-loving best friend Charles Boyle (Joe Lo Truglio). Where would we be without the egotistical wisdoms of Gina Linetti (Chelsea Peretti), the relentless brown nosing and binder collating of Amy Santiago (Melissa Fumero) and the weapon-wielding human enigma that is Rosa Diaz (Stephanie Beatriz)?
