PETER HERMANN - Charles Brooks

PETER HERMANN as Charles Brooks

Peter Hermann is known to millions for his current role as book publisher Charles Brooks in TV Land's hit romantic series Younger. As Charles and Liza's (Sutton Foster) chemistry heightens, they are faced with the choice of maintaining professionalism or exploring a new path. It looks like Liza isn't the only one having to make tough decisions anymore.


Hermann's work spans stage, film, and television, including roles on Broadway in Eric Bogosian's Talk Radio and Lincoln Center's Tony Award–winning production of War Horse. On film, he has been seen in Philomena, directed by Stephen Frears, the critically acclaimed United 93, directed by Paul Greengrass, as well as HBO's "Too Big To Fail". On television, he has had roles on Blue Bloods, 30 Rock and Darren Star's Cashmere Mafia, among others, and he has recurred as defense attorney Trevor Langan on Law & Order: Special Victims Unit, alongside his wife, Mariska Hargitay, for seventeen of the show's nineteen seasons. He is a former high school English teacher and was a charter member of the Teach for America teaching corps. This March, Peter added children's author to his résumé with the release of his first book, IF THE S IN MOOSE COMES LOOSE, published by HarperCollins. 


Peter and Mariska live in New York with their three children.
