Who's ready to meet Nick Miller's baby bro?!

Nick Kroll, who stars on FX's The League and Comedy Central's Kroll Show, has been cast on New Girl, Entertainment Weekly reports.

Kroll, 34, will play Nick's dim yet passionate younger brother, an air conditioner repairman named Jamie. Fellow stand-up comedian Bill Burr, who plays henchman Kuby on Breaking Bad, has been cast as Nick's foulmouthed cousin Bobby, a TSA agent at Boston's Logan airport whom Jamie is constantly fighting with.

New Girl casts Justified alum to play Nick's mom

The castings come less than a week after Margo Martindale was announced as Nick's mom. All three members of the Miller family will appear in an upcoming episode during which the gang travels to Nick's hometown of Chicago and discovers he is the most normal person in his family.

Viewers got their first taste of Nick's family when Law & Order's Dennis Farina guest-starred as his con artist dad.

What do you think of the castings? Can you see the family resemblance? New Girl airs Tuesdays at 9/8c on Fox.
