had a regal bearing and a sonorous voice that he used to memorable effect in a string of films; in Broadway plays, notably August Wilson's Two Trains Running (1992), for which he received a Tony nomination for best supporting actor; and as the narrator of such films as Babe (1995), Babe: Pig in the City (1998), Garfield: A Tail of Two Kitties (2006), and Epic Movie (2007). Browne launched a career in show business in 1956 and went on to win an Obie Award in 1965 for his portrayal of a rebellious slave in Benito Cereno. For his TV work he took parts that capitalized on his dignified persona; he earned an Emmy Award for his guest role as Professor Foster on an episode of The Cosby Show, and he portrayed (1980–81) the scholarly butler Saunders in the comedy Soap.
