Spoilers were just posted for season 2 episode 20 of New Girl coming up, called "Chicago" - an episode where we'll get to meet Nick's mom, and Entertainment Weekly has reported and Zap2It confirmed the actress cast to play Mrs. Miller.
"You recently had a brief chance to hang out with Nick’s dad (Dennis Farina) before he slipped out the door. Now you’re about to meet a few more members of the Miller family, including his mother, who will be played by Margo Martindale of Justified fame, EW has learned.
"In the episode, which will air on Fox in March, the gang travels to Chicago, where Nick (Jake Johnson) was raised. Jess (Zooey Deschanel) & co. are surprised to discover that Nick is actually the most responsible and mature member of his family. His hard-nosed, emotional mother is skeptical of her son’s relationship with Jess, and, well, of Jess in general."
"Audiences will meet Nick's mother in a March episode when the roommates travel to Chicago (as first reported by EW.com). There, the friends will be surprised to learn that -- compared to the rest of his family -- Nick is actually a pretty responsible and mature person.
Yes, Mom is that nutty.
The lady is described as extremely emotional and rather stubborn. Unfortunately for Jess (Zooey Deschanel), Nick's mom isn't such a fan. Whether or not Nick and Jess manage to have a relationship of any sort by this point, at least one member of the Miller fan will not approve."
What do you think of the casting for Nick's mom?
