Nick Cannon can do pretty much everything. He’s the host of America’s Got Talent, he’s a film star, a manager, an entrepreneur and now he’s joining the NYPD, sort of. The comedian has just nabbed a recurring guest spot on Brooklyn Nine-Nine. The entertainer, who’s been in the news recently thanks to his split from Mariah Carey, will be starring in multiple episodes of Fox’s breakout comedy show beginning this December.
According to The Wrap, Cannon is set to play Captain Holt’s nephew Marcus, a “handsome” and “charming” young man who is staying with his uncle until he can find his own place. He joins a slew of other celebrity guests who’ve been tapped for Season 2 episodes including Eva Longoria, Jenny Slate, Ed Helms and Kyra Sedgwick.
