Gina Rodriguez Will Play Rosa’s Love Interest On “Brooklyn Nine-Nine”

The "Jane the Virgin" star is set to appear on the Fox comedy this spring.

Jane the Virgin star Gina Rodriguez is slated to appear on an upcoming episode of Brooklyn Nine-Nine, and all signs point to her playing Detective Rosa Diaz’s girlfriend.

Viewers learned that Rosa (Beatriz) was bisexual earlier this season and, after showrunners revealed that the character’s girlfriend would pop up in a later episode, Beatriz suggested Rodriguez for the part.

“[I] love Gina and think she would be fantastic,” Beatriz, who is bi in real life, too, told Entertainment Weekly in January.

Rodriguez was overjoyed, taking to Twitter to plead for an audition. “You know I’m ready and on the sidelines like, ’Go Rosa Go!'” she tweeted.

Rodriguez currently plays a lesbian named Anya in the sci-fi/horror film Annihilation starring Tessa Thompson and Natalie Portman.

Details about her Brooklyn Nine-Nine cameo are currently under wraps, but Beatriz’s co-star Terry Crews posted some rather telling set photos to Instagram.

Brooklyn Nine-Nine returns to Fox this spring.
