Sterling K. Brown Makes Golden Globes History With His Best Actor in a TV Drama Win

January 08, 2018

Sterling is making all kinds of history!

Man, can Sterling K. Brown make a speech or what?

The This Is Us actor has wowed us in the past as he’s accepted his many much-deserved acting accolades and his acceptance speech at the 2018 Golden Globes for Best Actor in a TV Drama—itself history-making, as he is the first African-American male actor to win in his category ever—was no different.

Beating out a stacked category that included Jason Bateman, Freddie Highmore, Bob Odenkirk and Liev Schrieber, Brown began his speech with a swoon-worthy to his beloved wife. Don’t want to run out of time, so let me thank my wife. Ryan Michelle Bathe, I love you so much,” he said. “Thank you for supporting me through the whole thing.”

After thanking his cast and the network, he turned his attention to the NBC drama’s creator, Dan Fogelman, who he credited for providing him with the first role in his career that could only be played by a man such as himself. “Throughout the majority of my career, I have benefited from colorblind casting, which means, you know what, hey, let’s through a brother in this role. Right? It’s always really cool,” he said. “But Dan Fogelman, you wrote a role for a black man. Like, that could only be played by a black man. And so, what I appreciate so much about this thing is that I am being seen for who I am and being appreciated for who I am. And it makes it that much more difficult to dismiss me or dismiss anybody who looks like me.”

We couldn’t have said it better ourselves.

Brown was one of This Is Us’ three nominees at tonight’s ceremony. His co-star Chrissy Metz is nominated for Best Supporting Actress, along with the show itself finding itself on the shortlist for Best Drama TV Series. While Metz’s category hadn’t been announced as of press time, the show lost out to The Handmaid’s Tale.

This Is Us returns with new episodes on Tuesday, Jan. 9 at 9 p.m. on NBC.

This Is Us star Sterling K. Brown to guest on Brooklyn Nine-Nine

January 04, 2018

Sterling has a new guest appearance scheduled! Thank you to for the news!

This Is… going to be fun.

Sterling K. Brown will travel across networks to guest-star on Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Fox announced on Thursday.

The Emmy-winning This Is Us star — who was last seen on the NBC dramedy threatening to kill his brother, who was pulled over for DUI with his daughter in the backseat — will play an actual murder suspect on Fox’s cop comedy. The episode is special in that it will follow a single story line for the half-hour, as Philip Davidson (Brown) is interrogated by Jake (Andy Samberg) and Holt (Andre Braugher).

The episode is slated to air in the spring, when Brooklyn‘s fifth season resumes. Brown has long desired to work with Braugher, a fellow Stanford alum, and he even thanked him in his speech last fall at the Emmys when he won the Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series trophy, becoming the first African-American actor to win that in 19 years, when Braugher triumphed for his work on Homicide: Life on the Street. “I just want to say whether it’s at Stanford or on this stage, it is my supreme honor to follow in your footsteps,” Brown effused from the stage.

Brown — who will hit the big screen in Hotel Artemis, Black Panther, and The Predator — recently popped up on HBO comedy Insecure.

The season 5 guest roster also includes Tim Meadows, Lou Diamond Phillips, Jimmy Smits, Bradley Whitford, and Danny Trejo.

Dan Fogelman Teases Second Half Of Season 2: Aftermath Of Kevin’s DUI, Adoption & More

December 11, 2017

Deadline spoke with This Is Us Creator Dan Fogelman on what’s to come on This is Us.

In speaking with This Is Us’ Dan Fogelman about the NBC/Fox series Golden Globe nominations this morning for TV drama, lead actor Sterling K. Brown and supporting actress Chrissy Metz, the series creator teased a slew of intel regarding the second half of season two.

Or as Fogelman puts it, “We have big episodes in short order.”

When we return in January, we’ll immediately be thrusted back into the fallout of Kevin Pearson’s DUI. Does he go to jail? That’s still TBD, but what Fogelman did let on about was that there’s an intense 12-minute dramatic scene between mom and the grown Pearson kids, read Brown, Metz, Mandy Moore and Justin Hartley.

“They just go at it in an interesting way that I had to call of them into my office because there’s some really serious acting going on,” says Fogelman. “We find Kevin in rehab and the family has arrived to hash things out in a therapy session. It’s very loaded.”

In addition, there’s a small child we see at the end of the last episode “Number Three” before the break, a young boy who Brown hinted could be destined for Randall’s family. But is he? Kate just miscarried, and Toby and her would like a child. Could the young child be headed their way instead? Fogelman was blown away by our question, however, remained mum on whether the young child goes to Kate or Randall.

Then, of course, there’s the neverending details surrounding Jack’s (Milo Ventimiglia) death. We learned this season that Jack potentially perishes in a fire. But did he set? Was he in the house? Does he smoke? “We promised answers in season 2 and we have eight episodes left and it’s all coming in short order. It will really be a heartbreaking surprise,” adds Fogelman. However, it’s the series’ plan to have other danglers in the older Pearson children’s lives take the front seat to the story surrounding Jack’s death mystery. That said, the enigma around the patriarch’s life will continue to evolve.

Fogelman further confirmed what Brown told us: That Randall will ultimately return to Memphis and develop a relationship with his extended birth family there. A second Memphis story was the original concept for the Thanksgiving episode before the This Is Us writers went with a three-episode-arc centered around each Pearson child. “We have a lot of real estate from Memphis and we’ll find our way back there,” says Fogelman.

In addition, Fogelman also spoke about the mystery surrounding Randall’s mother, Laurel. William informed him that she died during childbirth, and if she didn’t, “It would mean that William lied,” says Fogelman. However, in regards to whether Randall visits her grave, dives into learning more about her, Fogelman says such events “aren’t happening this season. But the construct of the show is that if we want to explore her back history, we don’t have have to send Randall to do it. We can just go into the story about his mother by going back in time and see how she met William (Ron Cephas Jones).”

Currently, Fogelman is in the middle of production on episodes 14 and 15 of This Is Us‘ 18-episode season. The NBC series returns on Jan. 2.
