new girl nick kroll bill burr casting nick fox 'New Girl' casting: Nick Kroll, Bill Burr and Ellen Abertini Dow join the family

Do you want an explanation for Nick (Jake Johnson) on “New Girl”? Well, family is always a good explanation, and we are going to meet most of that family in March when the roommates visit Chicago.

Burr, meanwhile, will play Nick’s loud and aggressive cousin Bobby, whose main goal in life seems to be fighting with Jamie. Finally, Dow is Nick’s semi-deaf aunt who thinks the other members of the family are out to get her.
