'Homicide,' 'Duets' thesp to hype literacy events

SAG Foundation’s BookPALS program has tapped Andre Braugher (“Gideon’s Crossing”) as national spokesman.

Braugher will make appearances at literacy events representing BookPALS as well as participate in Storyline Online, the recently launched online streaming video program featuring SAG members reading children’s books aloud. SAG Foundation is the charitable arm of the Screen Actors Guild.

“As a parent and as an actor, children’s literacy and education are vitally important to me,” Braugher said. “It is my hope that I can bring further awareness to the BookPALS program.”

Braugher’s credits include “Homicide: Life on the Street” (for which he won an Emmy), “City of Angels,” “Duets,” “Get on the Bus,” “The Tuskegee Airmen” and “10,000 Black Men Named George,” which he also exec produced.
