We have already met Nick's father -- a con man played by Dennis Farina -- on "New Girl." And soon we will be meeting up with the man's mother. As it turns out, Mrs. Miller will be played by Emmy-winner Margo Martindale ( "Justified," "The Americans").

Who is this lady who begat Nick ( Jake Johnson)?

Audiences will meet Nick's mother in a March episode when the roommates travel to Chicago (as first reported by EW.com). There, the friends will be surprised to learn that -- compared to the rest of his family -- Nick is actually a pretty responsible and mature person.

Yes, Mom is that nutty.

The lady is described as extremely emotional and rather stubborn. Unfortunately for Jess ( Zooey Deschanel), Nick's mom isn't such a fan. Whether or not Nick and Jess manage to have a relationship of any sort by this point, at least one member of the Miller fan will not approve.

Margo Martindale won the 2011 Emmy for Best Supporting Actress in a drama series for her work as the villainous Mags Bennett on "Justified." Her next TV role will be a recurring part in "The Americans."

"New Girl" airs Tuesdays at 9pm on FOX.
