TVLine has your exclusive first look at the very special bottle episode (airing Easter Sunday at 8:30/7:30c on Fox), which is inspired by the Homicide classic “Three Men and Adena.” The This Is Us star, who takes on the role of suspected killer Philip Davidson, is the subject of an all-night interrogation by Andy Samberg’s Det. Peralta and Homicide alum Andre Braugher’s Captain Holt.

In the following clip, Jake takes the lead and grills Davidson about his whereabouts on the night of the murder. He quickly gets thrown off track when he makes reference to a classic video game, and Davidson gives him a helpful tip.

Sterling K. Brown weighs in on ‘Black Panther’ debate, talks black Hollywood’s responsibility

March 08, 2018

After millions of moviegoers packed theaters around the world, there’s been one resounding question on the minds of all “Black Panther” fans — was Erik Killmonger really a villain?

Killmonger, portrayed voraciously by Michael B. Jordan, was the forgotten son of Wakanda, abandoned in Oakland, California, after his father, Prince N’Jobu was suddenly killed. It left many wondering what would happen to the prince’s young child, who was outside playing basketball with his friends when his father died.

And moviegoers got their answer just minutes later in the form of Killmonger, who not only wanted to avenge his father’s death but the lives of millions of African-Americans, who felt forgotten by their mother country. The story line, for many, hit close to home.

Sterling K. Brown, who portrayed Killmonger’s father in “Black Panther,” told ABC News the debate on whether Killmonger is actually a villain “is the most fascinating conversation to come from the film.”

“The whole concept of Killmonger,” he said, “is he a villian or does he represent us — especially African-Americans?”

“He is a villian because, while his intentions, and N’Jobu’s intentions for that fact, are honorable, they didn’t necessarily go about it [in a way] that would actually bring about the change that they want,” the actor explained.

Brown, 41, who spoke to ABC News while working with Clorox for their “Clean is the beginning” campaign, noted that defenders of Killmonger are quick to forget that his onscreen son shot his girlfriend in the face, and he burned all of Wakanda’s powerful heart-shaped herb.

“He wasn’t trying to create a legacy. He was like ‘I want this for myself,'” the award-winning actor explained. “That’s where the intention gets confused with personal ambition, but what he was able to illuminate … is that he is not without a point.”

Brown added that thanks to Killmonger many were able to see a problem plaguing not only the fictional country of Wakanda, but our global community right now. Noting that Wakanda “has resources” and “access to technology,” the actor said the problem was Wakanda was “keeping it to themselves.”

“Not only have they’ve been keeping it to themselves, but people who have sought refuge, they have actively denied them that,” he added, “and now we ask this question in this global community that we are all a part of: Am I my brother’s keeper? The answer is yes.”

Brown’s message of being his “brother’s keeper” doesn’t end on screen. It also extends offscreen.

Back in January, when the “This Is Us” actor won the Screen Actors Guild Award for lead actor in a drama series, becoming the first black actor to do so in the category, Brown was asked backstage about black Hollywood’s responsibly to black media outlets.

Jaleesa Lashay of Black Tree TV, which bills itself as the “number one source for urban entertainment,” specifically asked him about the “disparities between the opportunities given to black journalists in comparison to our white counterparts” and if there was a “plan in Hollywood” to correct it.

Brown, in the moment said, “You know what? I’ve never paid attention,” but noted that the media room was indeed lacking diversity.

Nearly two months later, the actor said he’s thought about that question a great deal.

“If you have an opportunity to make sure that a competent individual of color is getting access to you — because everybody wants to have access, lots of people do,” Brown began, “I feel like I can do that. That’s the least I could do.”

Brown said he even went a step further and had a “conversation with my publicist to make sure we’re on the same page about things, but letting it be known that it’s something that I want to do to make sure that people aren’t being shut out.”

This Is Us star Sterling K. Brown to voice NBC’s Olympics opening film

February 08, 2018

Sterling K. Brown seems to have the world in his palm right now, so it makes sense that his voice will be heard around the world for the planet’s biggest international sporting competition.

The trophy magnet and star of This is Us will narrate the opening film for the 2018 Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, South Korea. Titled Always Start with the Dreams, the seven-minute film — which pays tribute to the 2,800 Olympic athletes going head-to-head on the slopes, on the ice, and beyond — will unspool before the Opening Ceremony and help to introduce NBC’s coverage of the games, which begins Friday at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT.

Among the athletes featured in the film: Alpine skiers Mikaela Shiffrin and Lindsey Vonn, short track speedskater Maame Biney, snowboarders Shaun White, Chloe Kim, and Kelly Clark, and figure skaters Nathan Chen, Evgenia Medvedeva, and Yuzuru Hanyu.

Mike Tirico will anchor coverage of the Opening Ceremony with Katie Couric.

Breaking Bad‘s Giancarlo Esposito handled film narration duties for the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio, while Game of Thrones‘ Peter Dinklage provided vocals for the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi. Previous celebrity narrators also include Emily Blunt, Ewan McGregor, Andre Braugher, and James Earl Jones.

Brown, who hits the big screen in Black Panther as well as the upcoming Hotel Artemis and The Predator, recently claimed a Golden Globe and an Emmy for his work as Randall on the NBC family drama.
