We know the amazing bunch of main characters, such as the quirky Jake Peralta, the deadpan Captain Raymond Holt, and the badass Rosa Diaz. But, we also have the side characters who are as equally as comical and sometimes mischievous. They add that extra spice to Brooklyn Nine-Nine’s storyline!

Captain Jason Stentley

Captain Stentley took the role of captain at the 99th precinct in Captain Holt’s absence. Unlike Holt, Stentley is very friendly, eccentric, and expressive. He is aware of his lack of qualifications, and he even told the team how he got the job. He also prefers to be called “CJ”.

He also went out of his way to give the squad everything they wish for – Gina was given an assistant, Terry a yogurt fridge, and Charles a treadmill desk. Realizing that they are taking advantage of CJ’s generosity, they told him to start learning how to say no.

Kevin Cozner

Kevin Cozner is a professor at Columbia University and a scholar who guarantees his lines are as clever and witty as possible. He is Captain Holt’s husband, and he usually says things that perfectly match his partner’s intellect. They get along so well, and they share a love for knowledge.

Holt and Cozner like playing with words, and they could get competitive at times. The fact that they always try to be serious in every situation makes it more comical.

Adrian Pimento
