Get ready for some daddy issues on Brooklyn Nine-Nine.
Bradley Whitford will guest star on the Fox comedy as Captain Roger Peralta, the father of Jake Peralta (Andy Samberg). A rather charming guy, Jake's dad — a regional airline pilot — has a history of letting his son down. Jake is hoping things will be different this time when his dad visits him for a father-son weekend in Brooklyn.
