America's Got Talent host Nick Cannon has booked a multiple-episode role
on the Fox sophomore comedy, the network announced. On the cop comedy
starring Emmy nominee Andre Braugher, Cannon will recur as Marcus, Holt's
charming and educated nephew who just moved to the city and will stay with
his uncle until he finds his own place. Cannon will make his debut in December.
The actor becomes the latest high-profile guest star to head to Brooklyn. He joins
Kyra Sedgwick, currently recurring as Holt's nemesis; Craig Robinson as the elusive
Pontiac Bandit; Eva Longoria as a D.A. who catches Jake's (Andy Samberg) eye;
and Patton Oswalt as Fire Marshall Boone, among others.
Brooklyn Nine-Nine airs Sundays at 8:30 p.m. on Fox. Cannon, who also is exec
producing and reprising his role in VH1's Drumline reboot, also counts Bobby and
The Killing Room among his credits. He's repped by ICM Partners, Chaz Hayes
and Del Shaw.
