'Brooklyn Nine-Nine': Kid Cudi Will Appear In Guest Role For Andy Samberg's Fox Comedy


Rapper Kid Cudi -- real name Scott Mescudi -- will make an appearance on Fox's cop comedy "Brooklyn Nine-Nine" this fall, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The hip-hop artist will reportedly play Dustin Whitman, "an ex-con that Jake (Andy Samberg) is convinced robbed a jewelry store," in an early episode of Season 1. Mescudi's previous TV credits include "The Cleveland Show" and HBO's shortlived "How to Make It in America."

The show aims for comparisons with workplace comedies like "The Office" and "Parks and Recreation" rather than "Police Squad," and at the recent Television Critics Association summer press tour, executive producers Mike Schur and Dan Goor promised many potential guest stars you may recognize.

"[The set-up] seemed like a really good way to grab some funny people that we are friends with or that Andy is friends with or anyone is friends with and just have them show up," Schur said. "We don’t have anyone specific lined up yet or anything, but, hopefully, it will be at the level of someone making a phone call and saying, 'Hey, do you have an hour? Can you come down and shoot this goofy thing?'"

"Brooklyn Nine-Nine" premieres Tuesday, Sept. 17 at 8:30 p.m. ET on Fox.
