Every Main Character In Brooklyn Nine-Nine Ranked Worst To Best

Gina Linetti (Chelsea Peretti) is by far the most chaotic character on “Brooklyn Nine-Nine.” The civilian administrator and personal assistant to Capt. Raymond Holt (Andre Braugher) spends most of her time browsing on her phone, praising herself, and mocking everyone else. She is a childhood friend of Detective Jake Peralta (Samberg), who got her the job at the precinct. She is extremely intelligent and loyal to those she cares about, though her attempts to help often seem misguided or self-serving.

Gina leads a dramatic life, but she doesn’t do much during her work hours. Throughout her six seasons, she performs with two dance troupes (called Floor-Gasm and Dance-y Reagan), survives getting hit by a bus, has a casual relationship with detective Charles Boyle (Joe Lo Truglio), and wins the fourth annual Halloween Heist, revising the coveted title as “Ultimate Human/Genius.” Gina is shockingly narcissistic, but her delusions often lead to some of the show’s funniest insults and more than a few hilariously self-serious dance numbers.

Peretti was a writer for Michael Schur’s “Parks and Recreation” before being cast as the narcissistic administrative assistant. Though her icy deadpan is hilarious, Peretti is known to break character and can frequently be spotted laughing during the silly scenes, a habit that eventually worked its way into the character herself. Chelsea Peretti also┬áloved to improvise with the cast, explaining in an interview with Young Hollywood, “You get the scripted version, and they let you play around with it a lot of times, and I love doing that. It was fun.”
