Adam Sandler is set to guest star as himself in an upcoming Super Bowl episode of Brooklyn Nine-Nine.
The actor and comedian will be starring alongside his real-life friend Andy Samberg, whom he has also worked with before in films like Grown Ups 2 and Hotel Transylvania.
In an interview with E! Online, Mike Schurr, the creator of the show, suggested that the Super Bowl episode was going to be pretty special and will also tip its hat to the mega-sports event.
"It's very fun. There's a lot of Terry Crews and Andre Braugher together, which I love. The two of them have a big storyline together and they're really, really funny together," he said. "And then there's some Super Bowl specific stuff but we really just tried to create a really just big, bright, funny, juicy, comedy story."
The creator also said that the respective episode might also be a hit with people who will be sampling the show for the very first time and that they were trying to reach out to a bigger audience and tap into the popularity of the Super Bowl.
"We're hoping a lot of people will check out the show for the first time because the entire universe watches the Super Bowl. And so we really just wanted to sort of introduce the characters to a wider audience," he said. "We tried to just build a couple stories that are really explaining in the funniest way who everyone is."
Even though Brooklyn Nine-Nine is still in its maiden run, the show has already picked up two nominations -- best comedy series and lead actor -- for the 2014 Golden Globes.
Brooklyn Nine-Nine airs Tuesdays on Fox.
