Zooey Deschanel will be out on maternity leave for part of season five of New Girl this year, so they’re bringing in a new recurring cast member to fill her space. Jess will be renting out her room on the show while her character is out on jury duty.

Who will the new roommate be?


Wait, what? Really? Megan Fox?

She will play “Reagan,” who is being described as a “gorgeous, straight-shooting pharmaceutical sales rep who comes to town on business and shakes things up in the loft.”

Showrunner Liz Meriweather, in fact, had her in mind when they wrote the part, because Meriweather was such a fan of her comedic skills in This is 40.
“She’s the perfect person to come in and shake these guys up,” Meriweather noted.
