“New Girl” has found a new girl.
Megan Fox (“Transformers”, “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles”) has been added to the cast of the upcoming fifth season of “New Girl” on FOX, which is set to premier next January.
FOX will fill the temporary void left by lead actress Zooey Deschanel, who, in early August, gave birth to a baby girl. Deschanel taped the first five episodes of the fifth season before she went on maternity leave. But then, Jess will vacate her room for a while.
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’ room while she is sequestered on jury duty. Fox will first appear in the sixth episode of the upcoming season and will be around for multiple episodes.
