New Girl star Zooey Deschanel is going on maternity leave which means FOX had a decision to make. Do they put the New Girl on hold or do they replace Deschanel temporarily? As they say, the show must go on.
Megan Fox has been cast to step in for the time being. Fox will be playing Reagan, a pharmaceutical sales rep in town on business. She ends up renting out Jess’ (Deschanel) room while she is on 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,” 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.”
First thing we should all recognize FOX for giving the lead star of a hit sitcom time off. Second, we can only assume Megan Fox will be keeping the male characters on their toes.
Also if you were thinking this article was more a lame reason to post pictures of Megan Fox than it was news I was actually interested in. Don’t be ridiculous, of course it was.
