On Fox’s New Girl, what would Nick act and look like many years from now?

That’s going to be explored in an upcoming episode of the hit comedy, which has just cast an actor from Justified to play “Older Nick.”

Raymond Barry (Training Day, Cold Case) has signed on for the guest star role in season two. In the episode, Nick (Jake Johnson) meets an old man in a bar who claims to himself from the future. The would-be time traveler acts like an older and drunker version of Nick and seems to know everything about his future, er, past.

The casting comes after executive producer Liz Meriwether gave EW.com some scoop on Jess’ story taking a dramatic turn next season and the casting of a former NBC star as Jess’ new love interest.
