A pair of stars from The Office are headed to the Nine-Nine.

Oscar Nunez and Craig Robinson will guest-star in successive episodes of Brooklyn Nine-Nine, EW has learned exclusively.

Nunez will be up first, appearing in the Jan. 19 episode of Fox’s cop comedy. He plays a doctor who gives Jake (Andy Samberg) and Holt (Andre Braugher) some bad news about their health.

Robinson makes his return as the Pontiac Bandit in the Jan. 26 installment. The charming and slippery car thief — who appeared on the cop comedy once in season 1 and once in season 2 — re-enters the picture when Jake (Andy Samberg) and Amy (Melissa Fumero) go on a cruise together and discover that he is on the ship with them.

Brooklyn co-creator Michael Schur has more than just affection for The Office: He was one of the NBC comedy’s key writer-producers.

The Jan. 26 episode also features a guest spot by another thief of sorts: Scream Queens scene-stealerNiecy Nash, who plays Holt’s sister, Debbie.

Robinson recently starred in NBC’s short-lived comedy Mr. Robinson and will appear on the big screen this year in Zeroville and Table 19. Nunez, who appeared in the big-screen drama The 33, guest-starred on Life in Pieces last month and will star in the alien abduction support group comedy People of Earth, which TBS ordered on Thursday.
