“Brooklyn Nine-Nine” was the underdog that overcame low ratings and cancellation at Fox. Despite the setback, the show made a triumphant comeback after shifting to NBC. It went on to delight fans for eight seasons with its intricate pranks, squad bets, “Die Hard” cosplay, undercover aliases, Halloween heists, and the lovable cast.
Now that the show ended in September 2021, it’s time to catch up with the cast and see what they’re doing.
What the Brooklyn Nine-Nine Cast is up to These Days
Melissa Fumero as Amy Santiago
Amy Santiago is the career-driven, goofy girl of the Nine-Nine, and Melissa Fumero is one of two Latina female leads in a central network sitcom. Fumero had experienced serendipitous success, such as getting her first job the same day as her last college exam and being grateful for the support of fans like Lin-Manuel Miranda when the show was canceled and later picked up again. After “Brooklyn Nine-Nine,” she moved to the canceled Netflix series “Blockbuster” and the new HBO Max show, “Velma.”
Andy Samberg as Jake Peralta
Andy Samberg has worked on various projects after leaving “Brooklyn Nine-Nine.” He reprised his role as Johnny, the human who lives with monsters, in “Hotel Transylvania: Transformania” and played Dale in the reboot of “Chip and Dale: Rescue Rangers.” Additionally, he narrated three episodes of “Never Have I Ever” and appeared in the 2023 film “Self Reliance,” directed by Jake Johnson.
Andre Braugher as Raymond Holt
Andre Braugher surprised and delighted viewers in “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” with his comedic talent and ability to subvert expectations. Since the show ended, he had a recurring role on “The Good Fight” and played a father figure in the film “She Said,” based on the New York Times exposure of Harvey Weinstein. In both roles, he supports and guides his employees through their challenges.
Joe Lo Truglio as Charles Boyle
Charles Boyle is a crucial character in “Brooklyn Nine-Nine,” bringing absurdity to each episode with his quirks. Joe Lo Truglio, who portrays Boyle, has been successful in comedy due to his collaborations, physical comedy, and voice acting. He attributes his connection to Boyle to their shared weirdness. Lo Truglio has appeared in “Reno 911!” since 2005 and “History of the World, Part II.”
Stephanie Beatriz as Rosa Diaz
Stephanie Beatriz, known for her role as tough detective Rosa Diaz in “Brooklyn Nine-Nine,” has been taking on more active roles since leaving the show. She recently starred in Disney+’s “Encanto” and has been lending her voice to various animated projects for kids and adults. While voicing a Disney character was a “dream come true” for Beatriz, she was most touched by being able to represent her bisexuality on “Brooklyn Nine-Nine.”
Chelsea Peretti as Gina Linetti
Gina Linetti is the first social influencer known for her confidence and unwavering opinions. Chelsea Peretti played the character and worked her real-life pregnancy into Gina’s storyline for comedy. Peretti left the show after the fifth season and has since voiced characters in “Sing 2” and “Big Mouth,” released a comedy album, and made her screenwriting and directing debut with “First Time Female Director.”
Terry Crews as Terry Jeffords
Terry Jeffords, the yogurt-loving and emotionally powerful character in “Brooklyn Nine-Nine,” challenges traditional cop show stereotypes. Terry Crews, the actor who portrays him, shares the same vitality and compassion in real life, as seen in his hosting gigs and the memoir “Tough: My Journey to True Power.”
Joel McKinnon Miller as Scully
Joel McKinnon Miller and Dirk Blocker’s characters in “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” are a match made in heaven. Norm Scully and Michael Hitchcock are lazy, dim-witted, and only interested in food, women, and napping. Despite their silliness, their antics are excellently written, making even the smallest moments memorable. Miller later appeared in the HBO Max miniseries, “The Staircase,” playing attorney Larry Pollard, known for his owl theory surrounding the cause of Kathleen Peterson’s death.
Dirk Blocker as Hitchcock
In the last season of “Brooklyn Nine-Nine,” Hitchcock retires in Brazil while Sully contemplates joining him. Dirk Blocker, who played Sully, appears to be enjoying retirement at home with his wife, as seen on his Instagram. The actors became close after working together on unscripted gags in the early seasons and are likely to spend their golden years together, even if not in Brazil.
Craig Robinson as Doug Judy
Doug Judy, aka The Pontiac Bandit, is Jake’s friend and foe, a clever swindler who always escapes Jake’s grasp. Craig Robinson loved playing Judy and making Samberg laugh on set. Robinson has since starred in his “Killing It” series and lent his voice talents to several animated projects. He’s also hosted “The Masked Dancer” and “Your Attention Please,” and famously became the face of Pizza Hut.
Jason Mantzoukas as Adrian Pimento
Detective Adrian Pimento, a violent and unbalanced character, was played by the perfect actor for the role, Jason Mantzoukas. Known for his oddball characters, Mantzoukas embraced the chaos of Pimento in “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” and has continued to take on wild roles in shows like “Pam and Tommy” and “Big Mouth.” He also stars in Hulu’s “History of the World, Part II.”
Marc Evan Jackson as Kevin Conner
Marc Evan Jackson is a versatile actor who has played various roles in TV series, including Kevin Cozner, husband of Captain Raymond Holt in “Brooklyn Nine-Nine.” He has appeared in other comedies and lent his voice to “Transformers: Earthspark” in 2022, but Kevin and Raymond’s love story created an approving stir. The show’s portrayal of their gay interracial marriage was groundbreaking in its thoughtful representation, and Jackson’s performance infused affection into their relationship.
Kyra Sedgwick as Madeline Wuntch
Madeline Wuntch is Holt’s nemesis in “Brooklyn Nine-Nine.” Kyra Sedgwick played the character with relish and enjoyed the visual insults thrown at her by Holt. After Wuntch’s demise in Season 7, Sedgwick directed and starred in her sitcom, “Call Your Mother.”
Dean Winters as The Vulture
In “Brooklyn Nine-Nine,” Detective Pembroke, the Vulture, is known for stealing solved cases and taking credit. He even temporarily served as captain of the Nine-Nine and was worse than ever. Dean Winters, who played the Vulture, has a career of playing terrible characters, such as Mayhem in Allstate commercials and Dennis Duffy in “30 Rock.” Despite facing constant pain after a bacterial infection in 2009, he has continued to bring humor to his roles, including recent appearances in “Girls5eva,” “Joe vs. Carole,” and “Christmas vs. The Walters.”
Kyle Bornheimer as Teddy Wells
Detective Teddy Wells dated Amy in “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” for a few months, but she found him boring due to his love for pilsners and dumped him. As the show progressed and Amy got closer to Jake, Teddy continued to express his passion dully. Kyle Bornheimer, who played Teddy, is far from dull despite his 88 acting credits as a supporting actor. He enjoys playing innocent and cheerful characters who are not always the brightest. In his recent show “Avenue 5,” which unfortunately got canceled after its second season, he portrayed one half of a griping couple on a luxury spaceship cruise. However, with his track record, he will soon land another role.
