New Girl has cast Rob Riggle as Schmidt’s competitive cousin who also goes by their last name – Schmidt.

According to TV Line, Rob Riggle has been cast as Schmidt’s cousin and rival that goes by their name Schmidt. Riggle is set to guest star in a Thanksgiving themed episode of New Girl that will air in November.

We aren’t at all surprised that there’s another member of the Schmidt family that is similar to the one we know and love and we can’t wait to see the competition between the two. We can only hope Riggle’s appearance in a Thanksgiving themed episode means we will get to see the Schmidt family Thanksgiving.

Riggle is most famous for his roles in 21 Jump Street, The Hangover, and The Other Guys. He’s certainly no stranger to comedy and we can’t wait to see him as Schmidt’s cousin.
