SNL's Pete Davidson Is Nathan Fillion's Brother in The Rookie Guest Spot

Pete Davidson Fillion Brother

As Saturday Night Live‘s Chad might best put it, “OK.”

SNL vet Pete Davidson is set to guest-star on ABC’s The Rookie as the half-brother of no less than Nathan Fillion’s title character, Officer John Nolan.

“He plays my half-brother. My miscreant, ne’er do well half-brother. One’s a cop, one’s a pain in the ass — and now they’re half-brothers,” Fillion revealed on SiriusXM’s EW Live. “It’s amazing.”

Fillion and Davidson first met on the set of The Suicide Squad, James Gunn’s upcoming follow-up to Suicide Squad: No The, where they play as-yet-undisclosed roles.

In addition to his SNL run and some voice work, Davidson’s previous TV credits include episodes of The Guest Book, The Jim Gaffigan Show and Brooklyn Nine-Nine (where in Season 1 he played an at-risk kid recruited by Amy and Rosa to become a junior police officer).

Back from an 11-week (!) break, ABC’s The Rookie resumes its sophomore run this Sunday at 10/9c.
