Megan Fox will be replacing Zooey Deschanel on New Girl while Deschanel is on maternity leave when the show returns in January. Deschanel’s character, Jess, will be sequestered on jury duty for a spell of episodes, allowing Fox to fill in.
According to Megan Fox’s New Girl co-star, Lamorne Morris, who plays Winston, they’re also having a great time on the set. Morris describes her as “super fun to look at and super fun to work with.”
But according to Morris, Fox’s looks also belie her true intelligence.
“She’s probably one of the smartest people I’ve ever met in my entire life by a mile — super intelligent.”
What’s that? Come again? Megan Fox?
There’s gotta be a kicker, right? Sure, there’s a kicker.
“If I ever have a question, literally about anything, [I ask Megan] …. I just ask her questions all day about everything. We talk about astrology and aliens.”
Well, that explains it, then. Megan Fox is smart about aliens and astrology. Fox knows everything when it comes to pizza-eating-turtles battling alien invaders and alien robots who turn into automobiles.
