TVLine Items: B99 Casts Charles' Ex, Regina's Dad Returns to Once and More

Brooklyn Nine-Nine is giving its resident optimist a bitter pill to swallow.

Joe Lo Truglio’s Charles will soon come face-to-face with his ex-wife Eleanor, to be played by Transparent actress Kathryn Hahn.

According to EW.com, Hahn will appear as Charles’ unfaithful former flame in the Jan. 5 midseason premiere. The episode will also welcome back Mary Lynn Rajskub as Boyle’s current girlfriend, Genevieve.

Brooklyn Nine-Nine airs Sundays at 8:30/7:30c on Fox, before it relocates to Tuesdays at 9 pm in January.

    Once: Seriously with every character back on the guest list, has anyone on the crew considered to ask Michael Raymond James back? He was such an important character. Almost every dead character came back somehow, flashback, resurrection, etc. why not him?

    • rcb918 says:

      The one thing that needs to be remembered is that MRJ is now now a regular on another show. While I would love to see him appear again, he may not want to/be able to return right now.

      Honestly, with the way the wrote Neal and acted like he wasn’t a major part in the overall story, I wouldn’t want MRJ to come back. He deserves better. At least we know Graham will probably never be back either?

    It was only a matter of time before Kathryn Hahn showed up. They’ve already had Kyle Bornheimer.
