Veep star Matt Walsh to return to Brooklyn Nine-Nine
Brooklyn Nine-Nine is going to the Matt again.
Veep star Matt Walsh will guest-star in the Nov. 8 episode of Fox’s cop comedy, EW has learned. Walsh is reprising his role from season 1 as Det. Lohank, the weekend shifter who not only shaves at his and Diaz’s desk, but also has prostate cancer and a wife who broke her back and became addicted to pain meds, and a dog that was run over by a drunk driver.
In this episode, titled “Into the Woods,” Lohank lets Jake (Andy Samberg), Charles (Joe Lo Truglio) and Terry (Terry Crews) use his cabin for the weekend after Jake decides that Terry needs to chill out. Let’s just say Lohank’s bad luck hasn’t run out and his accomodations would not earn five stars. Or even one.
Walsh, who will hit the big screen in next year’s Ghostbusters reboot, has popped up recently on such shows as Playing House, Hot in Cleveland, and Comedy Bang! Bang!. He also directed the indie comedy A Better You.
Brooklyn guest stars this season have included Bill Hader, Archie Panjabi, and Mary Lynn Rajskub. Nick Offerman will play the ex-boyfriend of Holt (Andre Braugher) next month.
