It’s time to meet Maxine’s dad, but he’s a familiar face.

Adam Arkin will guest-star on The Carmichael Show as Grant North, who is a formal, exacting, self-made man, and Jerrod (Jerrod Carmichael) makes it his mission to impress his girlfriend’s father, EW has learned. Grant drops into town to attend the graduation of Maxine (Amber Stevens West) and winds up in a painfully honest conversation with her, prompting Jerrod to go head-to-head with him to fix the relationship.

Arkin — whose credits include Northern ExposureChicago HopeFargo, and Justified — popped up in a guest-star role on Modern Family on Wednesday night.

The episode is slated to air in May.

Other notable guest-stars on Carmichael this season include Marla Gibbs and Antwon Tanner.
