Brooklyn Nine-Nine: See Jimmy Smits as Amy's dad

Posted on


Last season on Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Amy played Meet The Parents with Jake’s mother and father, which means it’s time for Jake to return the favor. In tonight’s Thanksgiving episode (8 p.m. ET/PT on Fox), NYPD alum Jimmy Smits stops by to play the adoring father of Amy (Melissa Fumero), and Jake (Andy Samberg) does his best to impress the sharp former cop, who, like his daughter, loves a good crossword puzzle. Does that involve rattling off financial terms that he does not understand? It most certainly does. See for yourself in this clip from tonight’s episode, “Mr. Santiago.”
