Patton Oswalt Returning to ‘Brooklyn Nine-Nine’

Stand-up comedian is the one who brings in Terrell Owens to tackle the NYPD in the annual football game

Patton Oswalt

Patton Oswalt is coming back to “Brooklyn Nine-Nine,” TheWrap has learned — and this time he’s got a secret weapon.

Fire Marshall Boone (Oswalt) will enlist ex-NFLer Terrell Owens to help the FDNY defeat the NYPD in their football game. And the former group needs the help, as the “Nine-Nine” always wins thanks to Sergeant Terry Jeffords (Terry Crews).

Owens, who in his prime was known as much for his diva-ish behavior off the field as he was for his on-field National Football League talents, tweeted a photo of himself on-set with Crews on Aug. 8.

Crews also played in the NFL; he was selected in the 11th round of the 1991 draft by the Los Angeles Rams. Crews also had stints with the San Diego Chargers, Washington Redskins and Eagles.
