West Wing mini-reunion: See Jimmy Smits and Bradley Whitford play drunk dads on Brooklyn Nine-Nine
It's going to competitive — and awkward
Brace for the reunion of Santos and Lyman. Warning: It’s going to be chippy, boozy, and downright awkward.
In Brooklyn Nine-Nine‘s Thanksgiving episode, The West Wing alums Jimmy Smits and Bradley Whitford — who once played POTUS and campaign manager/chief of staff, respectively, and who have both guest-starred separately on Fox’s cop comedy — return in the same episode, as the newly engaged Jake (Andy Samberg) and Amy (Melissa Fumero) decide that it would be a good idea to have their parents bond over a T-Day meal to kick off the impending union. Turns out, this was not such a good idea.
Check out this first-look clip from “Two Turkeys” — which airs Tuesday at 9:30 p.m. ET/PT and also includes a Sons of Anarchy reunion between Smits and Katey Sagal! — to see just how competitive that Amy’s dad, Victor (Smits), and Jake’s absentee father, Roger (Whitford), will get during the toasting process of the increasingly uncomfortable couple.
