TCA 2015: Ex-“SNL” star reunites with old pal Andy Samberg and will play his boss
Captain Holt (Braugher) took an NYPD Public Relations job on Fox comedy’s Season 2 finale. The character will still be on the show, just in a new gig.
Hader’s captain — described only as “efficient” — will guest-star on “Brooklyn’s” Season 3 premiere, which airs Sep. 27. It is currently unclear if Hader’s character will recur, but a person with knowledge told TheWrap that he will not be a permanent replacement.
The season premiere of “Brooklyn” will also feature a guest appearance from Archie Panjabi, who appeared on CBS’ “The Good Wife” for six years, as Lieutenant Knox, a police officer with a crush on Joe Lo Truglio‘s Detective Boyle.
“Brooklyn Nine-Nine” returns to Fox Sundays this fall.
Hader, an alum of “Saturday Night Live,” was most recently seen opposite Amy Schumer in Judd Apatow‘s “Trainwreck” and he’s also a prolific voice actor, with roles in Pixar’s “Inside Out,” “The Good Dinosaur” and Sony’s “Sausage Party.”
He is represented by UTA.
