Broadway living legend Lin-Manuel Miranda is making his way to the silver screen for a guest stint on NBC’s Brooklyn Nine-Nine.
TVLine reports that the episode featuring Miranda, titled "The Golden Child," will premiere March 7. He’ll play Amy’s brother and supposed rival, David Santiago. It’s unclear if the episode name refers to Amy, David, or another character.
The casting announcement is thanks in part to Miranda himself, after he and a handful of celebrities argued that Brooklyn Nine-Nine move to another network after Fox canceled the series. NBC picked up the Andy Samberg-led comedy shortly after.
This is not Miranda’s first foray into sitcom comedies, however. The performer previously guested on Curb Your Enthusiasm, Difficult People, Modern Family, and How I Met Your Mother. More recently, he has recently appeared on the kid's series Nina’s World and Duck Tales—or rather, his voice has.
Miranda has kept busy since Hamilton, promoting his turn in Mary Poppins Returns, and working on various film projects, including a highly-anticipated adaptation of In the Heights and tick, tick...BOOM!. He recently returned to his own musical in the title role of Alexander Hamilton for a three-week engagement in Puerto Rico.
