It's time for some brotherly love!

Victorious star Matt Bennett has just landed a pretty juicy guest spot on The Big Bang Theory, E! News has learned. He's Wolowitz's (Simon Helberg) half-brother!

In an episode slated to air on April 9, titled "The Fortification Implementation," Bennett will make his debut as Josh, Howard's younger half-bro who shows up on his doorstep unexpectedly. Bennett is currently only expected to appear in one episode, but fans can expect Josh to be everything Howard isn't. Hm...anyone else thinking he's the son of Wolowitz's dad, who left his family when he was 11? 

In addition to co-starring alongside Ariana Grande and Victoria Justice on Nickelodeon's hit series Victorious, Bennett also appeared in Bridesmaids and The Virginity Hit

Josh's introduction continues a trend of seeing more of Wolowitz's family this season, albeit it's a much happier storyline.

After the tragic death of actor Carol Ann Susi, who was never seen on-screen, her character, Mrs. Wolowitz, died in the Feb. 19 episode. Wolowitz received a phone call from his aunt, who informed him his mother had passed. "My mom died. That was my aunt, Ma took a nap. She never woke up," he told the group. 

TBBT honored Susi at the end of the Nov. 13 episode, airing a card featuring her headshot with the message: "In loving memory of Carol Ann Susi. 'Mrs. Wolowtiz.' Every time you spoke, we laughed. You're in our hearts forever."

The Big Bang Theory airs Thursdays at 8 p.m. on CBS.
