In ETonline’s exclusive sneak peek at Sunday’s episode of Battle Creek, Duhamel’s good-looking charmer Special Agent Milt Chamberlain shows off his foreign language skills – much to the chagrin of his Battle Creek Police Department detective colleagues Russ Agnew (Dean Winters) and Fontanelle White (Kal Penn).
“We just want to talk,” he says expertly in Spanish when the trio confronts some possible suspects. Russ and Fontanelle’s reaction to Milt’s fluent Spanish? Shock – obviously!
“You speak Spanish?!” Fontanelle asks, wrapping his mind around Milt’s latest skill. If that doesn’t add insult to injury, apparently Milt’s French and Italian “are better.”
But here’s the kicker: He didn’t learn Spanish in a Spanish-speaking country, but in Tehran. “They speak Spanish in Iran?” Fontanelle says, still not fully grasping his partner’s knack for languages. “Spanish teachers do,” Milt replies.
When he tries to identify where the possible suspects are from, well, that’s when things get interesting. Watch the rest of the scene above.
Battle Creek airs Sundays at 10 p.m. on CBS.
