New Girl Season 2 Casting Spoiler: Who's Playing Nick's Con-Artist of a Dad?

Did anyone else pick up on Nick's comment about dads in last night's Thanksgiving episode? How he doesn't trust them? Well, if you read our New Girl exclusive spoilers about Nick's con-man dad coming for a visit during season 2 episode 13, then Nick's dad dialogue in "Parents" suddenly makes a lot more sense.

But as far as who would be portraying Nick Miller's dad, we weren't so sure about. Until now, anyway. TVLine has announced that Dennis Farina will be the one to play Nick's dad, Walt.

"TVLine has learned exclusively that the veteran actor (Midnight Run, Law & Order) has been cast on the Fox hit as Walt Miller, Nick’s (Jake Johnson) charming con-man father who suddenly reappears in his life. Nick, naturally, is highly suspicious about his pa’s impromptu visit. Jess and Winston, however, couldn’t be more delighted to meet the elder Miller."

The episode, "A Father's Love" is slated to air in early 2013. Are you as excited as Jess and Winston to meet Nick's dad?
