It's about time. After weeks and weeks of hoping, waiting, wishing, and biting our nails in anticipation of the introduction of Captain Holt's mysterious husband on Brooklyn Nine-Nine, the day is actually here! In tonight's episode of Brooklyn Nine-Nine , we will meet Captain Holt's husband, Kevin, who has oft-been referred to but never seen on screen. Finally!
As previously reported, the character — named Kevin Cozner — will be portrayed by Parks & Recreation star Marc Evan Jackson, and he'll be introduced when he invites the entire 99th precinct to a birthday party he's throwing for Captain Holt at their home. Apparently, the precinct is in for a huge surprise when they actually meet Kevin Cozner, because all this time they've literally thought that Captain Holt was married to actor Kevin Costner. I mean, close enough, right? No one can really blame them for that mistake.
In a recent interview with TheBacklot, Andre Braughner — who portrays Captain Holt — elaborated on Holt and Kevin's relationship: "He is a Classics Professor at Columbia, I’m a Police Captain and my Mother is a federal judge, so it’s one of those New York intellectual families."
To see the big reveal, tune in to Brooklyn Nine-Nine tonight at its new time, on Tuesdays at 9:30 p.m. EST on Fox.
