Margo Martindale to Play Nick's Mother on <i>New Girl</i>

Those curious as to where New Girl’s Nick Miller (Jake Johnson) gets his hardcore anger issues from (aside from, you know, the trauma surrounding his deceptive, con-man father) will have a definite answer soon enough.

According to a report by Entertainment Weekly, character actress Margo Martindale, who won an Emmy two years ago for her performance as murderous matriarch Mags Bennett on Justified, will play Nick’s “tough Chicago mother.”

The episode is set to air in March.

Here’s hoping the character doesn’t share her Justified character’s predilection for poisonous “apple pie”-flavored moonshine.
