*Nick Cannon will appear in multiple episodes of Fox’s hit comedy “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” as kin to Andre Braugher’s character Capt. Holt.

Beginning in December, the “America’s Got Talent” host will recur as Marcus, Holt’s charming and educated nephew who just moved to the city and will stay with his uncle until he finds his own place.

The actor is the latest high-profile guest star to visit the series. He joins Kyra Sedgwick, currently recurring as Holt’s nemesis; Craig Robinson as the elusive Pontiac Bandit; Eva Longoria as a D.A. who catches Jake’s (Andy Samberg) eye; and Patton Oswalt as Fire Marshall Boone, among others.

“Brooklyn Nine-Nine” airs Sundays at 8:30 p.m. on Fox.
