We always knew Denise Hemphill had blue blood. Although she’s currently playing a security guard–turned–sorority house mom on Scream Queens, Niecy Nash will now guest-star on Fox’s other hit comedy, Brooklyn Nine-Nine. Yesterday Nash tweeted a photo of herself on set with the caption, "So excited to work with the cast of @Brooklyn99FOX This show is HILARIOUS #HappyActress #Blessed." EW reports she will play the sister of Captain Holt (Andre Braugher), and that the episode is scheduled to air in January.
