It looks like Megan Fox is headed to the small screen. Us Weekly reports that the Transformers star has landed a recurring guest star role on the Fox comedy, New Girl. The 29-year-old joins Zooey Deschanel in the sixth episode of this upcoming season as Raegan, a straight-shooting pharmaceutical sales rep in town on business. She will sublet Jess’ (Deschanel) room when the latter gets called for jury duty.
“It’s insane to me that such a gorgeous person can be so funny, but I guess we just all have to accept it,” executive producer Liz Meriwether joked. “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.”
New Girl begins its fifth season in January. The series also stars Jake Johnson, Lamorne Morris, Max Greenfield, and Hannah Simone.
