Will Traeger (The Predator)
While plenty was wrong was with 2018’s The Predator, Brown wasn’t one of them. His antagonistic turn was quite entertaining and quite frankly made the movie watchable. He chewed up the scenery and gave 100% to this role. He could have been another bland villain, but it’s his charisma that made the role fun.
Gordon Walker (Supernatural)
Brown had a recurring role for 3 episodes in the show. He played a vampire hunter trying to take down Sam Winchester as he believed he was a vampire. While his appearance was brief and later was killed off in the show, his scenes were still very much entertaining.
Christopher Darden (American Crime Story: The People Vs. O.J Simpson)
Based on the true story of the trial of O.J Simpson, Brown plays the prosecuting attorney Christopher Darden. His scenes are intense and acted wonderfully by Brown, which then of course then went on to earn him his first Emmy award.
N’Jobu (Black Panther)
While his appearance is really brief, Brown brings in a really emotional performance. His storyline is that of him betraying King T’Chaka and dying for it, leading his son to grow up without a father and have disdain for Wakanda. With only a few minutes on screen, his performance will still bring a tear to your eye.
Randall Pearson (This is Us)
The complex nature of this character is acted out beautifully by Brown. The characters ambitions and perseverance are portrayed very well on the screen, and while the arc of the character is heartbreaking, it's elevated by Brown's performance. This is also the second role that won him an Emmy award.
