Taylor Swift is guest starring on the season finale of New Girl as a guest at CeCe and Shrivrang's wedding in two weeks. Her character's name is Elaine, and that's about all showrunner Liz Meriwether will give us.
"I’m a huge fan of hers. I was fully geeking out about meeting [Taylor]," she said. "I didn’t go to meet her right away because I kind of had to compose myself—there’s a 14-year-old girl inside of me."
Meriwether didn't say TSwift will perform at the wedding, but only that she "did a little bit of a riff on one of her songs." Resident grouch Jake Johnson had nothing but good things to say about Swift's acting and joked that he's got her on lock.
"The good news—Max Greenfield and I have a production company called Jakey J. Maxie G 110 Percent Management. We take 35 percent ’cause we give you 110 percent, and Taylor Swift signed with us, so we’re not sweating it. We got all the money from her music and everything else," he said. "I’m not doing any work. I’m not coming back. Like I’m going to stay, grind it out on Stage 18 at Fox—no! I’m going to ride Taylor Swift’s coattails to the bank!"
The season finale of New Girl airs May 14 on Fox.
