24 Facts About The Cast Of “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” That'll Make You Do A Double Take
Melissa Fumero's husband, David, appears on an episode of Brooklyn Nine-Nine!
Melissa Fumero's first professional acting gig was on the soap opera One Life To Live, where she played Adriana.
Before Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Melissa also appeared on Gossip Girl as Zoe, one of Blair Waldorf's "minions."
Chelsea Peretti was a writer on Parks and Recreation for two seasons. She even made a cameo as Zelda in the "Live Ammo" episode.
Andy Samberg also made a guest appearance on an episode of Parks and Rec, where he played Head Park Ranger Carl Lorthner.
Stephanie Beatriz was born in Neuquen, Argentina, and moved to the US at the age of 3.
Chelsea and Andy were childhood friends. Chelsea even admitted to having had a crush on him at one point, saying she'd call his phone again and again and just hang up.
Andy, Akiva Schaffer, and Jorma Taccone have been writing and filming bits for The Lonely Island — their comedy trio — since junior high.
One of Melissa's first jobs was teaching ballet to kids in high school.
Both Terry Crews and Joe Lo Truglio are very talented artists. Joe did the animation for the MTV sketch show The State and Terry was a courtroom sketch artist in college.
According to Andy, Lorne Michaels said his audition bit about an out of breath '80s jogger was what got him the spot on SNL.
Andy wasn't the only cast member that worked on SNL before joining the Nine-Nine. Chelsea was an intern for the show in college and a guest writer in 2013.
Stephanie doesn't wear glasses while filming and contacts hurt her eyes, so when acting she's almost legally blind.
Andy first met his wife, Joanna Newsom, backstage at one of her concerts because he was a huge fan.
You might know that Terry Crews is a former NFL player, but you probably didn't know he's also a skilled flute player.
Joe Lo Trulgio has done voiceovers for quite a few video games like The Warriors, Grand Theft Auto, and Anthem.
Joe also made cameos — and sang! — in Pitch Perfect 1 and 2 during the riff-off scenes.
Stephanie originally auditioned for Amy Santiago. The casting director asked her to come back for that role and the role of Megan, who eventually became Rosa's character.
Chelsea, on the other hand, initially auditioned for the role of Megan but was told she didn't seem like a cop, so Gina Linetti evolved from there.
For a brief time in 2014, you could have Terry Crews' voice give you driving directions on Waze.
Chelsea and her husband Jordan Peele eloped with only their dog and the officiant — a woman named Soaring — present.
Stephanie made her official directorial debut this year when she directed the "He Said, She Said" episode of Brooklyn Nine-Nine.
Melissa met her now-husband David on the set of One Life To Live, but had a major crush on him as a kid when she saw him in Mariah Carey's "Honey" music video.
And finally, Melissa's husband David appeared on "The Puzzle Master" episode
of Brooklyn Nine-Nine, where he played Amy's favorite crossword puzzle author Vin Stermley.
