Cannon has been hosting America's Got Talent, but he's probably better known Mariah Carey's husband. Cannon recently revealed he's separated from the singer, so a new job will help occupy his time. Cannon will premiere some time in December.

Cannon joins a host of others who have already signed on to guest star on Brooklyn Nine-Nine Season 2, including Craig Robinson, Patton Oswalt, Kyra Sedgwick and Eva Longoria.
