L. Scott Caldwell, who played Rose Nadler on Lost, will guest star in season 4B of the Brooklyn Nine-Nine TV show on FOX. She has been cast as Laverne, the mother of Andre Braugher’s character, Captain Ray Holt, despite being only about a dozen years older than her on screen son.
Caldwell’s character is a federal judge. She’ll enter the story though, as a crime victim. A crime comedy series, Brooklyn Nine-Nine also stars Andy Samberg, Stephanie Beatriz, Terry Crews, Melissa Fumero, Joe Lo Truglio, Chelsea Peretti, Dirk Blocker, and Joel McKinnon Miller. Although season 4B returned to FOX last night, Caldwell’s episode will air in May.
Here’s more from EW:
“They have a very formal relationship as you would expect,” executive producer Dan Goor tells EW. “The apple does not fall far from the tree. At one point she says in the flattest most deadpanned way, ‘Ah, yes, humor. There’s nothing more that I love than laughter and laughing,’ as she stands cross-armed next to a cross-armed Holt.”
Recently, Caldwell starred as Belinda Gibson on Mercy Street, which was cancelled after two seasons on PBS. She’s also played Jasmine in the current third season of How to Get Away with Murder on ABC.
