Megan Fox will join the next season of the hit comedy series New Girl. The super sexy actress 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' (series star Zooey Deschanel) room while she is sequestered on jury duty.
Megan Fox will first appear in the sixth episode of the upcoming season, scheduled to premiere in January 2016. New Girl is a fun show, but sometimes the story goes over the top, making it almost impossible to watch.
Megan Fox could drive new viewers to the show. The sexy actress is also single again. She split from husband Brian Austin Green. She filed for divorce last month. Megan Fox is also back on Instagram with a hot selfie.
“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. “I’ve been a fan of her comedic skills since ‘This is 40,’ and I’m so excited to have her on the show. We had Megan in mind when we wrote this part – she’s the perfect person to come in and shake these guys up.”
Zooey Dechanel is on maternity leave, while Megan Fox is taking over the New Girl role on the show. This likely means that Megan Fox is out again once Zooey Dechanel is back at work.
New Girl returns on Fox for its fifth season with an uninterrupted run of all-new episodes. The series stars Emmy Award and Golden Globe nominee Zooey Deschanel, Jake Johnson, Emmy Award and Golden Globe nominee Max Greenfield, Lamorne Morris and Hannah Simone.
The show will celebrate its landmark 100th episode in season 5. Additional guest stars in the upcoming season include Fred Armisen (“Portlandia”), Taran Killam (“Saturday Night Live”), Nasim Pedrad (SCREAM QUEENS), Rob Riggle (FOX NFL SUNDAY) and John Cho (SLEEPY HOLLOW), as well as Julie Hagerty (“Airplane”) and Henry Winkler (“Arrested Development”).
