Someone new is moving into the neighborhood!

EW has learned exclusively that veteran actor Stacy Keach will play Lenny Venito’s (Marty Weaver) dad on the ABC sitcom The Neighbors. The 71-year-old will make his debut in the show’s Thanksgiving episode in what will be a very “interesting” turkey day for the Weavers. ABC is currently casting the role of Weaver’s mother.

Keach is perhaps most famous for his role in the Fox sitcom Titus, where he played the lewd father of comedian Christopher Titus. He has also appeared in a number of films, including The Bourne Legacy, the biopic W, and American History X. Here’s hoping Thanksgiving doesn’t end with a curb stomp!

The Neighbors premieres on Sept. 26. Watch the trailer below:
