According to a press release, actor,producer, musician and more Nick Cannon has just recently booked a recurring role on the Fox series Brooklyn Nine-Nine! We hear from our sources that this is a new plan from Cannon’s camp to start to dive into other comedy outlets besides Real Husbands Of Hollywood or MTV’s Wild N’ Out. Our sources also told us this morning that Cannon has a new plan too; he wants to start to book some serious dramatic roles.
Anyway, we hear that Cannon is set to play Captain Holt’s (Andre Braugher’s) nephew, Marcus, who we hear is described as “a handsome, educated and charming young man, who has just moved to the city and is staying with Holt until he finds his own place.”
According to our release, Cannon will first appear on the series in December.
If you are interested in seeing Cannon sooner, he will debut tonight on the new season of Real Husbands Of Hollywood on BET.
The next all-new episode of “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” will be a Halloween-themed special, which will air this Sunday, Oct. 19 at 8:30/7:30 on FOX.
