Andy BotwinJustin Kirk (S1-5)
Andy Botwin is Judah's brother, a fun-loving, irresponsible drifter. After Judah's death, Nancy reluctantly allows Andy to live at the house, and soon realizes his presence is needed for her business and as a father figure for the kids. He is also an archetypal Shakespearian 'fool', behaving like a child but occasionally has moments of great insight. Lately, Andy has become more responsible in response to Nancy's absence as a mother to her children. He recently discovered that he is in love with Nancy, who cannot reciprocate the feelings. When she moved in with Esteban, he sank into depression, grew a beard, and spent over $100,000 on video games and dive bar-style decorating. He owns a car that he claims is The General Lee, but the veracity of this is disputable.
