NEW GIRL: Megan Fox Cast in Recurring Role


NEW GIRL may not be returning until midseason on Fox, but the network has already announced a piece of casting news: Megan Fox has joined the show in a recurring role for a multi-episode arc.

According to the network, Fox will play Reagan, 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’ (series star Zooey Deschanel) room while she is sequestered on jury duty”. Fox will first appear in the sixth episode of the upcoming season, scheduled to premiere in January 2016.

“It’s insane to me that such a gorgeous person can be so funny, but I guess we just all have to accept it,” said NEW GIRL executive producer Liz Meriwether.  “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 – she’s the perfect person to come in and shake these guys up.”

In its fourth season, “New Girl” has become a show about nothing. And believe it or not, that’s something very few comedies have successfully pulled off in a post-”Seinfeld” world. “Happy Endings” succeeded, but only after a season of trying to contrive a plot based on how friendships are altered by two friends breaking up. “Cougar Town,” too, quickly became a critical favorite when it dumped its initial conceit and blossomed into a show about forty-somethings stuck in a wine-induced arrested development.
