Bradley Whitford and Samberg

And he'll be played by Bradley Whitford!

Fox announced today that the West Wing alum will come on board an upcoming installment as Captain Roger Peralta, a personable regional airline pilot who has made a life out of letting his son down.

He'll pay a visit to Brooklyn on May 8.
