The Rookie: Nathan Fillion Big Fan of Series Step-Bro Pete Davidson

It's been a pretty good week already for ABC's Nathan Fillion-starring The Rookie and it's only Tuesday. Yesterday, viewers learned that Jenna Dewan's firefighter Bailey Nune has been promoted to series regular status as of the current fourth season. The news comes only a day after actor, comedian & Saturday Night Live cast member Pete Davidson returned to the popular police drama as Nolan's (Fillion) half-brother Pete (with a big assist on that week's case). Fillion took to social media to let folks know just how much he appreciates having Davidson be a part of the series and how much he enjoys working with him.

"To say I'm a fan of Pete Davidson is an understatement. His work is always relaxed, natural, and understated. I'm so pleased he's come back to 'The Rookie' to play Nolan's brother again. It's a treat to work with this guy, and a bigger treat to call him a friend. If you didn't see the episode last night, it's not too late to stream it on Hulu," wrote Fillion in the caption to his Instagram post that included an image of him with Davidson (which you can check out below):
