Adam Hagenbuch, best known for playing Daphne’s boyfriend Mingo — yes, Mingo — on Freeform’s Switched at Birth, will appear in the Netflix comedy as Jimmy, the never-before-mentioned brother of Kimmy, E! Online reports.

(Side note: TVLine previously reported that a character named Jimmy, described as being a “touch on the weird side,” was being introduced as a love interest for Stephanie in Season 2. Could DJ’s little sister really have the hots for… a Gibbler?!)

Of course, Jimmy isn’t the only estranged family member we’ll meet in Fuller‘s second season. The sitcom, returning globally on Dec. 9, will finally introduce Joey’s Las Vegas-based family. His children, as well as wife Ginger, will make their debut in the Thanksgiving episode.
