Who’s that girl? It’s Jess’ mom…and dad! It’s official, Jamie Lee Curtis and Rob Reiner will appear on New Girl as the adorkable parents.

Jaime Lee Curtis will play Joan and Rob Reiner will play Bob, the divorced parents of Jess. The pair will appear on the Thanksgiving episode of New Girl. How will Jess react to having her parents over for the holiday? Naturally, she will try and get them back together. TV Line reports she will go the parent-trap route.

It will definitely be a family affair on the Thanksgiving episode, as Rob Riggle is also set to appear as Schmidt’s cousin. Riggle will also be called Schmidt and we’re guessing he may also be one to fill the douche-bag jar as the cousins are being described as rivals.

Jamie Lee Curtis most recently worked on NCIS but you may also know her from You Again, Freaky Friday, or Christmas with the Kranks.

Rob Reiner has been focusing more time behind the camera these days as a director but you may remember him from All in the Family.

Also appearing this season: Maria Thayer, Parker Posey, David Walton, Keenyah Hill, Josh Gad, Raymond J. Barry, Rob Riggle, Anna Maria Horsford, Nelson Franklin, and Niecy Nash.
