“New Girl” is continuing to add guest stars to its lineup after announcing last week that Nick’s mother Bonnie (played by Margo Martindale) would be showing up on the show. This time, a few more relatives have been added to appear in the same episode as Bonnie, all three of them relatives of Nick’s too. It’s starting to get a bit crowded around here.
Keep a look out for comedian Nick Kroll (“The League”), who will be playing Nick’s younger brother Jaime on “New Girl”. His character is described as a “dim-yet-passionate” man who makes his living as an air conditioner repairman. The show has also enlisted fellow stand-up comedian and actor Bill Burr (“Breaking Bad”) to play Nicks outspoken cousin Bobby. Bobby is a TSA agent at Boston’s Logan Airport who does not always see eye to eye with Nick’s brother Jaime. Finally, actress Ellen Albertini Dow (“The Wedding Singer”) has been enlisted to play Nick’s hard-of-hearing Aunt who is extremely paranoid that her whole family is plotting against her.
The episode will take Nick and his roommates to the windy city to visit his old stomping grounds. When Nick’s friends meet his family they are shocked to learn that he is the most mature of them all. Who would have thought?
