 New Girl casts Margo Martindale as Nick's scary, Margo Martindale-like mom

Confirming that New Girl’s Nick is basically just lucky to be alive, the Fox series has cast Emmy-winning Justified villain Margo Martindale as the character’s “hard-nosed, emotional mother”—this only a few weeks after Dennis Farina dropped by to play his con man dad. Martindale, whom everyone will be watching closely, just waiting for her to poison someone, will appear in a March episode as the gang travels to Nick’s hometown of Chicago, where everyone is terrible. She joins a season that’s already introduced Rob Reiner and Jamie Lee Curtis as Jess’ parents and Anna Maria Horsford as the mother to Winston, suggesting that a visit from Schmidt’s family is probably imminent, provided the producers can find a funny Jewish person.
