Patton Oswalt and Eva Longoria have both booked guest roles on Fox comedy BROOKLYN NINE-NINE. The comedy series, about to enter into its sophomore season, stars Andy Samberg as an immature but talented detective who butts heads with his superiors, played by Terry Crews and Andre Braugher. Oswalt has guest starred before, playing Fire Marshall Boone, and will return to enlist ex-football star Terrell Owens to help the FDNY when they face-off with the NYPD in a football game. Longoria, on the other hand, will have a multi-episode arc as Sophia, a defense attorney who becomes a love interest for Samberg’s Jake after they go head-to-head in the courtroom.
Oswalt is known for his comedy chops, especially for his roles on “The King of Queens,” “Reno 911!” and “United States of Tara,” as well as his many stand-up comedy specials. He also voiced Remy in the animated film “Ratatouille” and does the voice-over narration for the ABC comedy series “The Goldbergs.” Next up, Oswalt will appear in Robert Pickering’s comedy horror “Kitchen Sink.”
Longoria is best known for her role as Gabrielle on ABC’s dramedy “Desperate Housewives,” but has also starred in feature projects like “Over Her Dead Body” and Michael Berry’s western “Frontera.” She is the executive producer for the Lifetime series “Devious Maids.” Longoria’s upcoming acting roles include Demian Bichir’s “Refugio” and drama “Any Day,” starring alongside Sean Bean and Kate Walsh.
