Megan Fox to star in “New Girl” during Zooey Deschanel’s maternity leave
Megan Fox will star in “New Girl” for Season 5 (set to premiere in January), replacing Zooey Deschanel while she is on maternity leave.
Fox is expected to play Reagan, a pharmaceutical sales rep who rents out Jess’ (Deschanel) room while she is on jury duty. She’ll join “New Girl” for the sixth episode of the new season.’
Word is, Fox will “shake things up” on the show.
“It’s insane to me that such a gorgeous person can be so funny, but I guess we just all have to accept it,” said executive producer Liz Meriwether.
Deschanel and husband Jacob Pechenik welcomed their first child last month.
