We’re meeting more of the guys’ families on “New Girl” this season, so it only makes sense that Jess will bring her parents by the loft too. Just who will play the parents of Zooey Deschanel? None other than Rob Reiner and Jamie Lee Curtis.
According to TVLine, the actors will appear in the Season 2 Thanksgiving episode as Bob and Joan, the divorced parents of the newly laid-off teacher. She’ll try to get the couple to reunite in a “Parent Trap” sort of way.
Rob Riggle will also be stopping by for Thanksgiving as Schmidt’s cousin and mortal enemy, who also goes by Schmidt. Winston’s family will appear in episode 2 when Schmidt takes a liking to his sister, played by Keenyah Hill. Anna Maria Horsford is playing his mom.
“New Girl” returns for Season 2 on Tuesday, Sept. 25 at 8 and 9 p.m. on FOX.
