My third favorite Jessica from the ’00s (that would go Walter, Simpson, Biel and Alba) is going to be on New Girl. Jessica Biel will be on the fourth season premiere on September 16th.
The 7th Heaven alum will appear in the Fox comedy’s Season 4 premiere as Kat, the hottest scientist in the world who ends up competing with Zooey Deschanel’s Jess over a cute guy.
The setup of the Sept. 16 opener: The gang challenges each other to see who can get lucky at the last wedding of the season. The guy Jess sets her sights is the same dude Kat is eyeing.
I’m really a big fan of New Girl , but one of their weakest points has always been guest stars. Either they’re great or absolutely terrible. Dermot Mulroney as Russell? Amazing. Jeanne Tripplehorn as his weirdly named ex- wife Ouli? Magnificent. Linda Cardellini as Jess’ screw up sister? Awful. Like really surprisingly bad. Odette Annable as Nick’s boss/ hook up buddy? Wow, I’d actually forgotten that you were on the show for that episode. Why did the writers drop that story line so completely? One episode Nick’s sleeping with his new boss, and then nobody ever talked about that ever again. Like not even to mention how suddenly deciding not to sleep with your boss anymore would affect your job or to exploit how wonderfully awkward that would be for Nick.
Ok, I changed my mind. No more guest stars. Just more of Nick Miller as Grumpy Cat.
