EW has learned that Brooklyn Nine-Nine has cast the Trainwreck and SNL star Bill Hader as the new captain in the precinct, filling the position vacated by Captain Holt (Andre Braugher), who took a PR post with the NYPD in the Fox comedy’s season 2 finale. This new captain has described as “efficient.”
Bill Hader, who also stars in IFC’s upcoming mockumentary "Now!" will guest-star in Brooklyn’s season 3 premiere, which airs Sept. 27. Fox is not revealing how many episodes in which he will appear.
The following week’s episode also will feature some star power, as Archie Panjabi will play a lieutenant with an interest in Boyle (Joe Lo Truglio).
