Chip Chinery On 'Brooklyn Nine-Nine'

Nov 6, 2017

Anderson Township native Chip Chinery's fall TV tour continues Tuesday with an appearance on Fox's "Brooklyn Nine-Nine" (9:30 p.m. Nov. 7, Channel 19).

Chinery plays a poker player named "Don" when police Detective Jake Peralta (Andy Samberg) and Sgt. Terry Jeffords (Terry Crews) go undercover to investigate arms dealer Dan “Daniel” Valdano (David Figlioli).

As I wrote on Sept. 21, Chinery started the fall TV premiere week in September with a big splash – guest roles in CBS' "NCIS" and ABC's "Speechless" while playing former ABC Sports President Roone Arledge in the feature film "Battle of the Sexes" about tennis stars Billy Jean King (Emma Stone) and Bobby Riggs (Steve Carell). He also was in FX's "American Horror Story: Cult" in October.
