'Brooklyn Nine-Nine' Enlists Kid Cudi for Guest Gig (Exclusive)
The rapper-actor will play a jewel thief on the Andy Samberg comedy from the creators of "Parks and Recreation."
Fox's upcoming Brooklyn Nine-Nine comedy already is making good on its promise to enlist high-profile guest stars.
Rapper-actor Kid Cudi (aka Scott Mescudi) has booked a guest turn on the freshman comedy from Parks and Recreation duo Mike Schur and Dan Goor, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.
In the comedy about a diverse group of detectives at a New York precinct, Cudi will play Dustin Whitman, an ex-con that Jake (Andy Samberg) is convinced robbed a jewelry store. He's slated to appear in the third episode of the season.
Producers noted during their time at the Television Critics Association's recent summer press tour that Brooklyn lends itself to high-profile comedy guest stars, with Cudi becoming the latest to nab a role on the buzzy series. (SNL's Fred Armisen appears briefly in the pilot.)
Cudi's small-screen credits include How to Make It in America and The Cleveland Show. He's repped by WME and Leverage Management.
Brooklyn Nine-Nine premieres Sept. 17 on Fox.
