Gina Rodriguez is set to star in an episode of your favourite cop-comedy series, Brooklyn Nine-Nine. The Jane The Virgin star has booked a guest starring role in an upcoming Season 5 episode, Entertainment Weekly has confirmed.
Details on Rodriguez's character are being kept under wraps, though it's highly likely that she's been brought on board to play a potential love interest for Stephanie Beatriz's badass Detective, Rosa Diaz.
Earlier in the season, Diaz came out as bisexual in an episode that was praised for its realistic portrayal of her struggle. In a follow-up interview, Beatriz offered up some dream castings for Rosa's girlfriend and said she'd "love Gina Rodriguez, and think she would be fantastic."
Rodriguez tweeted in response: "Um...can I get an audition @Brooklyn99FOX ?!? *applies lip gloss and puckers lips* @iamstephbeatz you know I’m ready and on the sidelines like Go Rosa Go!"
Turns out dreams - or Tweets - really do come true!
Sergeant Terry Jeffords, AKA Terry Crews, shared a photo with the two ladies on set, writing "Amazing time today hanging with my sistas from different mistas," in the caption of the since-deleted post.
We can't wait to find out more about the role! Congratulations to Rodriguez on another exciting career milestone.
