Braugher made his directorial debut with one vignette of the Showtime trilogy Love Songs, in which he also starred.
In addition to Braugher's success on the small screen, audiences have seen him in a variety of feature film roles. Film credits include Primal Fear, with Richard Gere; Spike Lee's Get on the Bus; the Oscar®-winning film Glory; City of Angels, starring Nicolas Cage, Meg Ryan and Dennis Franz; All the Rage, starring Jeff Daniels, Gary Sinise, Joan Allen and Ann Paquin; Duets, opposite Gwyneth Paltrow; A Better Way to Die; and Frequency, starring Dennis Quaid.
