Kid Cudi is no stranger to television, appearing in HBO’s short-lived How To Make It In America series. The Cleveland native returns to the small screen this fall in a new FOX comedy series, Brooklyn Nine-Nine.
According to the Hollywood Reporter, Cudi, born Scott Mescudi, will not be a series regular. Instead, he’ll appear on the Andy Samberg cop comic vehicle playing an ex-con accused of knocking over a jewelry store by Samberg’s Jake Peralta character. Cudi’s appearance is slated for the third show of the series.
Cudder showed he had the ability to act in the aforementioned How To Make It In America. The rapper and vocalist also appeared on FOX’s animated series, The Cleveland Show in a bit role.
The good news continues to roll for Cudi, as he’s also set to embark on the “Cud Life” tour with Tyler, The Creator, Big Sean and Logic as well.
Brooklyn Nine-Nine premieres September 17 on FOX. Joining Samberg in lead roles is Andre Braugher, Terry Crews, and Melissa Fumero.
