More B99 Season 2 Teasers

Just give us an actual trailer already

Ed Helms goes postal this fall as a special guest star in Brooklyn Nine-Nine's second season. The Office vet will play an agent working for the United States Postal Inspection Service (USPIS) whom Det. Jake Peralta (Andy Samberg) struggles with in order to work a case.
As of now, Helms is only slated to appear in the Fox's comedy's seventh episode, airing on Nov. 16, "but anybody who enters this world can come back," says co-creator and executive producer Dan Goor.

First Look at Kyra Sedgwick

The Closer vet Kyra Sedgwick returns to the force in an arresting guest stint beginning Oct. 5. Sedgwick will appear in two episodes of Brooklyn Nine-Nine as Deputy Chief Madeline Wuntch, who shares an acrimonious history with Captain Holt (Andre Braugher).
"Kyra brings so much presence and gravitas to the role — exactly the traits needed to stand off against Andre Braugher," says executive producer Dan Goor. "And she pitched one of the funniest flashbacks that we've ever done!"

Season 2 Press Release

Season One ended with a surprising twist as Detective JAKE PERALTA (Samberg) was asked to go undercover for a major FBI investigation. He said his goodbyes to the precinct, and finally confessed his “romantic-styles” affection for Detective AMY SANTIAGO (Melissa Fumero), the unit’s honorary straight arrow. Jake is a gifted detective who has never had to work too hard or follow the rules too closely, perhaps because he has the best arrest record among his colleagues. That is, until CAPTAIN HOLT (Braugher) arrived as the precinct’s new by-the-book commanding officer. Captain Holt and Jake often butt heads over rules and regulations, but they have developed a strong and mutual respect for one another.
Holt’s next-in-command is Sergeant TERRY JEFFORDS (Terry Crews), a linebacker of a man, a father to twin baby girls and an unashamed minivan driver. Jeffords regained his confidence (and his license to carry a gun) after Holt helped him get over his fear of getting injured and not seeing his girls grow up.
Also working cases in Brooklyn’s 99th is Detective CHARLES BOYLE (Joe Lo Truglio), the precinct’s workhorse who idolizes Jake. Charles had long pined for the tough, sexy and scary-as-hell Detective ROSA DIAZ (Stephanie Beatriz), until he got engaged to someone else last season. Now with his wedding called off, Charles may have another shot with Rosa. That is, unless his shocking one-night stand with GINA LINETTI (Chelsea Peretti), the eccentric and self-absorbed civilian office manager, turns into something more. Rounding out the precinct’s staff are veteran officers Detective SCULLY (Joel McKinnon Miller) and Detective HITCHCOCK (Dirk Blocker). Unproductive and inept, the pair may not solve many cases, but they make an amazing pot of coffee.

USA Today Interview with Andy

At SNL, Samberg pushed the decades-old show past its cue-card sketch comfort zone and into the emerging world of "viral videos" with his Lonely Island films that became Internet hits. The actor himself wasn't sure that taking a lead role on Fox's Brooklyn Nine-Nine last year was the right move.
"It was a slight concern," he admits. "A lot of what people think of as my tone of comedy is The Lonely Island. ... Brooklyn Nine-Nine is not going to break into song at any given moment."
After premiering last September to decent ratings and critical buzz, Brooklyn Nine-Nine got a big boost in January, when it picked up two Golden Globe wins: for Best Comedy Series and Best Lead Comedy Actor (Samberg). "There's nothing better than winning something when you don't think there's a chance in hell you're going to win it," Samberg says. "We were like, 'All right, this is great. We're going to probably make a second season of the show now.' Everyone had a little pep in their step afterward."
As one of the show's producers, Samberg has more creative control than the average sitcom actor. Though he plans to leave directing in more experienced hands, he wouldn't mind trying his hand at writing an episode at some point. "I think I wouldn't have been able to handle it if I were an actor for hire," he says. "If that was my day-to-day, I think I would get a little antsy. It's a really good setup for me."
Samberg also has the benefit of following in the footsteps of his former SNL co-star Amy Poehler, who has received four Emmy nominations for playing Leslie Knope on Parks.
"Here's somebody who is one of my heroes, who I look up to and respect, and she's doing television on a network, and it doesn't feel like she's compromising," he says.
Part of what so intrigues Samberg and TV critics is that this is no ordinary cop show. Instead of graphic violence and a downbeat tone, the show features colorful characters, wacky slapstick, fizzy wordplay and a spirit of tomfoolery, even as the characters deal with serious police business. Samberg says real police officers have complimented this unconventional approach.
"It's nice for them to see part of that life represented," he says. "It's satisfying to be portrayed not as always grim and dire. Obviously, it's a very serious job, and it's very dangerous, but it doesn't make sense not to be humorous."

Stephanie Beatriz Interviews Andre Braugher For Latina Mag

S: Why do you think these awards matter? Or don’t matter? In popular culture, I mean, why do they matter or not matter?
A: Well, people like a contest. There's no doubt about that; people like to see winners and losers, that’s how it works in the mind. But ultimately it’s a huge commercial for our business. Our business is television, and television reaches a lot of people. So what we want to do is put the entire business forth in the best light. We want to  put forth our best shows, our most interesting actors, our most notable comedies, and so the Emmys is an effort really to do that. To let people know that the work on television has not gone away, and it’s really spectacular.
S: The character that you play (on Brooklyn Nine-Nine) is an African American homosexual captain in the NYPD who has faced prejudices in the past and in the present in his career. In your own career path, have you had similar experiences? As the world around you has changed, have your own experiences reflected that change?
A: The biggest change has been in the quality of the roles. You know, the quality of the storytelling. From the beginning of my career the most important thing to me was to get inside the family. At the beginning of my career, I was always the outsider. I was always the kindly schoolteacher or whatever the role was. And at a certain point I’m just tired of those roles, because they don’t carry the emotional content of the story. So during the whole course of my career, these last 30 years, I’ve moved from the outside to the inside. And that’s important to me.
I resist, and have resisted at all times, that kind of… sentimentality of the family? You know what I mean, the family story? I want to tell more credible and authentic family stories. But I’ve finally arrived, after 30 years, at the point where I feel like we’re telling credible and authentic family stories, and my character is the center of that rather than an outsider. There is, of course, more to be done, but I’ve seen in 30 years a wholesale change in the quality of the roles I’ve been playing.
