It looks like the New Girl cast will be making room for… another new girl!
According to FOX‘s press release, the 29-year-old will be playing:
“Raegan, a gorgeous, straight-shooting pharmaceutical sales rep who comes to town on business and shakes things up in the loft when she rents out Jess’ (Deschanel’s) room while she is sequestered on jury duty.”
We’re sure Jess’s guy roommates — played by Jake Johnson, Max Greenfield, and Lamorne Morris — will all be VERY excited for the new addition!
And it sounds like we can expect the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles star to deliver some funny lines!
Executive producer Liz Meriwether gushed over Fox’s comedic chops, saying:
“It’s insane to me that such a gorgeous person can be so funny, but I guess we just all have to accept it. I’ve been a fan of her comedic skills since This Is 40, and I’m so excited to have her on the show. We had Megan in mind when we wrote this part ├óΓé¼ΓÇ¥ she’s the perfect person to come in and shake these guys up.”
If there’s anyone to shake things up, it’s the newly single mom — who recently split from husband Brian Austin Green in August.
