Michael Nyqvist, Alfie Allen, Adrianne Palicki and Dean Winters have joined the revenge thriller John Wick. Keanu Reeves stars as the title character, an ex-hitman who goes after the guy who stole his car and in the process killed Wick’s dog — a present from his late wife. Turns out the thief’s dad is a crime boss in New York, who hires Wick’s old friend (Willem Dafoe) to kill him. Chad Stahelski & David Leitch direct from a screenplay by Derek Kolstad. Nyqvist’s credits include Mission: Impossible — Ghost Protocol and the original The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo and its sequels; Allen stars on HBO’s Game Of Thrones; Palicki was in G.I. Joe: Retaliation and TV’s Friday Night Lights; and Winters’ credits include 30 Rock, Law & Order: SVU and Rescue Me.

Dean Winters has mixed it up with Tina Fey on 30 Rock, and now he’ll play the onscreen foil of another Saturday Night Live vet, Andy Samberg.
In an upcoming episode of Fox’s new cop comedy, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, the Oz and Law & Order: SVU veteran (and mayhem-inducing star of many Allstate commercials) will guest-star as Warren Pembroke, who works for the Major Crimes Unit and has a rivalry with goofy-but-skilled detective Jake (Samberg).
Other celebrities will pop up in early installments of the series as well. Fox has confirmed that rapper Kid Cudi (Scott Mescudi) will appear as a jewel thief in one episode. (The Hollywood Reporter first reported the news.) In addition, the first episode includes a cameo by SNL alum Fred Armisen.
Created by Parks and Recreation executive producers Michael Schur and Dan Goor, Brooklyn Nine-Nine debuts Sept. 17.
