Fox’s New Girl has a new girl and it’s a different Fox, Megan Fox.
Megan Fox will join the cast of New Girl for the fifth season, as Zooey Deschanel takes maternity leave.
Apparently, a few episodes into the next season, Zooey Deschanel’s character Jess, will be on jury duty and will not appear on the show. During that time, Fox’s character Reagan, will rent out Jess’ room. Reagan is described as “a gorgeous, straight-shooting pharmaceutical sales rep who comes to town on business and shakes things up in the loft.”
It will be interesting to see the show without its central character but with a strong supporting cast, it should still make for some good television.
