Nick Kroll And Bill Burr To Guest Star On New Girl
The casting of Margo Martindale as Nick's mother should have give us an indication that New Girl was aiming high with the casting for the characters' family. But news on the casting front has gotten even better, as the Fox comedy series has cast two (excellent) stand-up comedians to play more Miller family relatives.
Margo Martindale Will Guest Star On New Girl
Margo Martindale is headed to Fox to take on a special role in an episode of the sophomore comedy New Girl. Martindale is set to play Mama Miller, a Chicagoan who also happens to be Nick’s mother. Nick's group of roomies will travel all the way to the Windy City to meet Nick’s family, but they will soon learn Nick is the most reasonable and reliable member of his brood.

Of all the shows that made us laugh this year, some stood out from the crowd. What makes a great comedy may be a matter of personal taste, but in our opinion these series all came out on top this year.

Presented in no particular order, here are TVBlend’s top 10 comedies of 2012.
Suite Life's Brenda Song Headed To New Girl
Disney Channel star Brenda Song is set to join the cast of a primetime comedy. The young actress who is best known for The Suite Life of Zack & Cody along with several other Disney Channel projects has landed a recurring role on Fox’s hit New Girl.
Brooklyn Decker Will Guest Star On New Girl
Actress and model Brooklyn Decker has spent the last couple of years trying to invigorate her acting career on the big screen in flicks like Battleship and Just Go With It. The actress, who started her career on the small screen with parts in Chuck and Ugly Betty, will now return to television to wreak a little havoc. The lovely celebrity will guest star in a Season 2 episode of Fox’s New Girl where she will play a love interest, but for whom?
Video: The Newsroom's Olivia Munn Makes Her First New Girl Appearance Tonight
2012 has been a big year for Olivia Munn. Not only does she have a starring role in HBO's new drama The Newsroom, but she also appeared in Magic Mike and The Babymakers, and next up, she's set to guest star on New Girl for numerous episodes, which includes tonight's "Bathtub." Fox released a behind-the-scenes video that gives us an early look at Munn in her role as Angie.
Watch: New Girl's Schmidt Describes His Elaborate Bedroom Technique With A Diagram
Well written sitcoms know how to approach the subject of sex with humor and subtly, some less subtle than others. One of the more memorable moments from Friends was the scene where Monica breaks down women's seven erogenous zones and then proceeds to explain foreplay by numbers. New Girl had a moment reminiscent of that one during this week's episode as Schmidt used a diagram of a woman's reproductive organs and some veiled terms to describe his technique when pleasuring a woman. It may be one of his best moments in the series to date.
New Girl Casts Dennis Farina To Play Jake Johnson's Con Artist Father
Of the too many sitcoms spread across too many networks, New Girl might be the most consistently funny. Obviously that's a testament to the writing but most television comedy success stories are made in the casting and the Fox sophomore hit is no exception. Zooey Deschanel's (lovably) awkward lead and Max Greenfield's supporting bro tend to get most of the recognition but Jake Johnson regularly steals the show. And who they've brought in to guest star as his father is a really casting coup.
Carla Gugino Will Get Kinky In New Girl's Season 2
Carla Gugino has played her share of tough and sensual characters in the past, but has never played anything like the character she is set to portray in a few upcoming episodes of Fox’s New Girl. This is because Gugino will be going all Fifty Shades of Grey on the Fox comedy’s second season, and she’ll be bringing Schmidt into the fold of her lifestyle.
New Girl Season 2 Adds Jamie Lee Curtis And Rob Reiner
I hope New Girl’s Jess has been eating her yogurt, because he mom is showing up for the Thanksgiving episode, and she’s really big on the stuff. Season 2 of Fox’s comedy will bring in Jess’ parents to visit for the holiday, and mom is none other than Jamie Lee Curtis. Rob Reiner will take a rare step out from behind the camera to join her as Jess’ dad for the episode.
New Girl Season 2 Adds Rob Riggle As A Guest Star
Max Greenfield's Schmidt on New Girl is quite a character. In fact, he's so memorable in his own amusing, egotistical way that I almost forget the days when he was playing a less likable egomaniac in Ugly Betty, or the adorably charming deputy in Veronica Mars. Come next season, we'll get to meet someone from Schmidt's family, and appropriately, someone very funny has been cast to play the role.
New Girl Casts Raymond Barry As Future Nick
New Girl will be taking a look into the future in an episode of the second season, and the future Nick has been cast. Justified actor Raymond Barry has been cast as the Nick of many years down the road. What will be he be up to? Only a glimpse forward in time will tell.
Parker Posey To Guest Star In New Girl Season 2 Premiere
Hot off her brief but fantastic guest spot in two back-to-back episodes of this season's Louie, Parker Posey doesn't appear to be done with the small screen yet. Word is, she's set to guest star in another series, this time on network television. The question is, will she force any of the men in this show into a dress?
Josh Gad Signs On For New Girl Season Premiere
The season premiere should feature a lot of romantic opportunities for lead-character Jess. In the episode, Gad will play a delivery man at a bar who hits on Jess around the same time Bent’s David Walton hits the scene to also woo the leading lady. Looks like things are heating up.
