Who did Martin Mull play in Brooklyn Nine-Nine?

Martin Mull starred in episode 10 of Brooklyn Nine-Nine season seven.

The episode was titled Admiral Peralta and saw Jake reunited with his family ahead of becoming a father.

Mull reprised his role as Andy’s grandfather Admiral Walter Peralta, which meant there were three generations of Perlaltas on Brooklyn Nine-Nine.

Bradley Whitford starred as Andy’s father and Brooklyn Nine-Nine fans will know they have a very complex relationship.

However, if Andy thought his relationship with his father was bad, the relationship between his father and grandfather was much worse.
