NEW GIRL, Fox
Brenda Song, (THE SUITE LIFE OF ZACK AND CODY, THE SOCIAL NETWORK), has been tapped by Fox for a recurring role on NEW GIRL. The Hollywood Reporter confirmed Song's deal earlier this evening.
Song will reportedly play a young woman who sets her sights on Winston, the roommate of Jess (Zooey Deschanel). No further details on her role have been announced.
The news of Song's temporary stint comes only a few days after the network announced Brooklyn Decker would guest on the Deschanel-led series this season, as well.
Taking a modern look at friendship and romance, breakout comedy NEW GIRL returned for its sophomore season with all-new exploits of a smart, spirited and single young woman, her three male roommates and her beautiful best friend.
This season, after JESS (Zooey Deschanel) gets laid off from her teaching job, she re-evaluates her life and career and immediately makes some dubious choices along the way – working alongside a jaded cocktail waitress (guest star Parker Posey), jumping into a sex-only relationship with a handsome lothario (recurring guest star David Walton) and attempting to bond with her younger neighbors by using 80’s humor. Also this season, NICK (Jake Johnson) is dumbfounded when he gets a visit from his future self, WINSTON (Lamorne Morris) must answer to his disapproving mother and basketball star sister, SCHMIDT (MAX GREENFIELD) panics at the thought of getting old and then becomes jealous when CECE (HANNAH SIMONE) starts dating the anti-Schmidt.
The hit ensemble comedy struck a chord with viewers last season when, after a bad break-up, Jess moved into a downtown Los Angeles loft occupied by three single guys. The trio helped Jess move on with her life, as she jumped back into the dating pool, which included a courtship with a fellow teacher, a Valentine’s Day one-night-stand and a May-December romance with the father of one of her students. Conversely, the upbeat and unique feminine touch that Jess brought into The Loft had just as much impact on her new male roommates and changed their lives in ways they never imagined.
