Saturday Night Live‘s Taran Killam is making a Tuesday-Night detour, landing a guest stint on Fox’s New Girl, TVLine has learned exclusively.
Killam will appear in an upcoming episode as Fred, Jess new beau who has the world’s most amazing parents (played by the equally-amazing Henry Winkler and Julie Haggerty).
His ‘rents are so awesome, in fact, that Jess considers not breaking up with him in order to remain close to mom and pops.
Killam shot his New Girl episode earlier this month during his SNL hiatus.
Damon Wayans Jr.’s departure from New Girl is sure to depress the gang, but that won’t stop them from taking full advantage of the loft’s new vacancy once he’s gone.
In the episode, Nick (Jake Johnson) and Schmidt (Max Greenfield) will be turning the loft into a designated Airbnb spot and hosting Armisen (Portlandia) as a boarder, with Maki (Wrecked) renting Nick’s room. Rannazzisi (The League) will show up as a frenemy of Schmidt and Nick’s from college.
This casting news follows the announcement that Anna George will be playing Cece’s (Hannah Simone) mother during season five.
New Girl recently wrapped production on season four and has moved on to shooting for next season in order to accommodate for star Zooey Deschanel’s pregnancy.

Meanwhile, Jess and Ryan drunkenly contemplate their future, Coach meets a new woman – over and over again – and Schmidt tries to fit into the world of politics.
#4.14 – “Swuit” – Jess helps Schmidt and Nick pitch their new business venture – the “Swuit,” a suit made entirely of sweatshirt material – to entrepreneur Lori Greiner. Meanwhile, Winston and Coach decide they will invest in Cece’s future.
Holy Schmidt, Max Greenfield’s TV mom is a Sweeney sister!
New Girl has tapped Saturday Night Livevet Nora Dunn to guest-star as Schmidt’s never-before-seen mother, TVLine has learned exclusively.
Dunn’s straight-outta-Long-Island, controlling matriarch, Louise, is always ready with unsolicited advice or a piece of chocolate.
In November, Dunn appeared on another Fox sitcom, Mulaney, as the title character’s mom.
Look for mother and son to be reunited in a March episode.
