The casting news just keeps coming in for New Girl Season 2.

First up: Winston’s (Lamorne Morris) mom, Charmaine Bishop. This strong-willed lady will be played by Anna Maria Horsford, who once starred on NBC’s Amen. According to TVLine, Charmaine raised all of her kids to become professional basketball players and she hates Schmidt (Max Greenfield).

Another new character is Robby, Cece’s (Hannah Simone) post-Schmidt love interest who can’t dance and is deaf in one ear. TV Guide reports that Nelson Franklin is slated to play this “genuinely nice” yet extremely unlikely, by the looks of it love match.

Anna Maria and Nelson join confirmed guest stars Josh Gad (a dorky beer delivery boy), David Walton (a bad-boy love interest for Jess), Leslie Mann (a shot girl), and Niecy Nash (a purse-snatching prostitute).  

Still no word, however, on who will play Jess’s (Zooey Deschanel) parents.
