Multiple news outlets have revealed that Brooklyn Nine-Nine actor Andre Braugher has died following a short illness. Braugher, who was only 61 years old, passed away on Monday 11 December 2023. The actor’s career spanned over three decades and his dulcet tones and quick wit made him a favourite among boomers and gen Z.

While Braugher first made his mark in NBC’s police drama Homicide: Life on the Street, it was his portrayal of Captain Raymond Holt in the hilarious police sitcom Brooklyn Nine-Nine that really cemented his fame.

I was a massive fan of Brooklyn Nine-Nine, and I think it’s fair to say that the show had one of the best ensemble casts out there. And while I had love for Andy Samberg, Chelsea Peretti, and Melissa Fumero, it’s no secret that Braugher was the one we all rooted for.

So, in honour of the actor, here are Captain Holt’s funniest moments from the show.

1. Captain Holt’s romance with Cheddar the corgi

I don’t think there’s anything cuter than the relationship a straight-laced man has with his adorable pupper, and Holt and Cheddar were no different.

Can't decide if that's the worst tattoo of all time or the best. #Brooklyn99 is streaming now on Peacock. #CaptainHolt #Tattoo #B99

2. Captain Holt being a robot

We love a man who embraces his authentic self and doesn’t try to change for anyone. Holt’s tendencies to go full-robot every now and then definitely helped make those moments of jubilation all the more satisfying. I personally think Holt would’ve been both pro AI and vehemently against it—he was a man of many layers, after all.

3. Captain Holt and Jake Peralta

I think one of the sweetest character developments throughout the series was watching Captain Holt ultimately become incredibly fond of Peralta. Polar opposites in nature and discipline, their little bond was definitely a highlight for me.

5. Captain Holt and Kevin

Last but not least, we had to give a shout-out to Holt’s very sweet relationship with his husband Kevin. I like to imagine that they never actually went through a breakup, but at least the producers didn’t ruin the entire show and instead let them get back together.
