'New Girl': Nick Kroll and Bill Burr to guest
Last week we learned that Nick’s mother, Bonnie, would be popping up on New Girl (hello, Margo Martindale). And this week brings news of more relatives for that same episode. EW has learned that comedian Nick Kroll (The League) will guest star as Nick’s dim-yet-passionate younger brother, an air conditioner repairman named Jamie. Meanwhile, fellow stand-up Bill Burr (Breaking Bad) will play Bobby, Nick’s loudmouthed cousin and a TSA agent at Boston’s Logan Airport who is always fighting with Jamie.
In the episode, which airs next month on Fox, Nick (Jake Johnson) and his roommates travel to Chicago, where he grew up, and his friends soon learn that Nick is somehow the most mature member of his family.
This isn’t our first time meeting another Miller: Dennis Farina recently played Nick’s dad.
UPDATE: Ellen Abertini Dow (The Wedding Singer) has been cast as Nick’s partially deaf aunt who is convinced that the other family members are plotting against her.
Zooey Deschanel plays lovable Jess, who is plodding through life with a good group of friends.
