You never know who you are going to run into on Brooklyn Nine-Nine. (Hello, Damon Wayans, Jr., Nick Offerman, and Dennis Haysbert!)

You also never know who you might walk into.

Rhea Perlman has joined Maya Rudolph and Jorma Taccone on the guest roster for the season 4 premiere of Fox’s cop comedy, EW has confirmed. The Cheers alum plays the leader of a group of power walkers in the Coral Palms, Florida neighborhood where Holt (Andre Braugher) and Jake (Andy Samberg) are now hiding in witness protection. It is also very possible that she has a crush on Holt.

Perlman has a recurring role on The Mindy Project as the mother of Danny (Chris Messina), and she recently has popped up on Mom and Getting On.

Brooklyn‘s season premiere, which airs Sept. 20 on Fox, also welcomes Maya Rudolph as a U.S. Marshal who will work with Holt and Jake while they pretend to be Greg and Larry, and Jorma Taccone as Holt’s super laidback boss. The second episode of the season will introduce the Nine-Nine‘s replacement captain, C.J., played by Ken Marino.

Yahoo TV first reported the news of Perlman’s casting.
