A Fox comedy just inherited a ton of drama: Former National Football League star Terrell Owens will appear on Season 2 of “Brooklyn Nine-Nine.”
Owens, who in his prime was known as much for his diva-ish behavior off the field as he was for his on-field talents, tweeted a photo of himself on-set with show star Terry Crews on Friday.
Fox confirmed that T.O. will appear in Season 2’s third episode, where he’ll square off against Crews in a pick-up football game, as the NYPD and FDNY battle for supremacy.
Apparently, Owens is a New York City firefighter in the world of “Brooklyn Nine-Nine.”
In the real world, Owens played ball professionally for the San Francisco 49ers, Philadelphia Eagles, Dallas Cowboys, Buffalo Bills and Cincinnati Bengals. He also played a season in the Indoor Football League, before returning to the NFL via the 2012 Seattle Seahawks’ practice squad.
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.
Here’s the tweet:
