While tonight will introduce two of 'New Girl's biggest guest stars to date, bringing to the table (literally) Jamie Lee Curtis and Rob Reiner as Jess (Zooey Deschanel)'s parents for Thanksgiving, it's 'Magic Mike' and 'The Newsroom' star Olivia Munn we're most excited to see. The onetime 'Attack of the Show' host will appear beginning with an upcoming episode as Nick's new girlfriend Angie, so how would you like a first look? Could the character be as racy as we're hoping?
We've reached that crucial time of the year in which networks evaluate how freshman series perform, and make decisions on how to go forward. FOX in particular has been fairly generous with its series, awarding additional episodes to 'The Mindy Project' and scripts for 'Ben and Kate,' but now we've learned that 'New Girl' and 'Raising Hope' will also get additional episodes! Meanwhile, what fate has The CW given to 'Beauty and the Beast' or 'Emily Owens M.D.?'
While 'New Girl' took a few episodes across its first season to get into the swing of things and break out as a critically-acclaimed series, one potential landmine has always remained in its path: must 'New Girl' go the traditional sitcom route and pair up its lead characters? We've observed Jess (Zooey Deschanel) and Nick (Jake Johnson) to have plenty of chemistry together, but do the new clips from tonight's episode "The Fluffer" mean the chemistry's about to hit the fan?
'New Girl' season 2 certainly burned off a number of high-profile guest stars in its two season premiere episodes "Re-Launch" and "Katie," everyone from 'Justified's' Raymond Barry and Parker Posey, to 'The Book of Mormon's' Josh Gad, but the second season of FOX's adorkable sophomore comedy is far from over. Plenty of guest stars have still to make their turn, but who's the latest? Why, 'Magic Mike' and 'The Newsroom' star Olivia Munn, of course! But whom might she play?
'New Girl's first season may not have scored any Emmys last night, but they'll certainly have another chance as September 25 will see the season two premiere, not once, but twice! It's a double-decker for 'New Girl' season 2 as 8:00 will drop the show's first new episode "Re-Launch," before picking up with another helping at 9:00 with "Katie." Earlier clips gave us a big look at the premiere, so who's ready for another helping?
Naturally, we can't resist catching a sneak peek at our favorite returning shows, let alone five! A surprise hit in its first season, 'New Girl' will premiere its sophomore year on Tuesday, September 25, but why wait until then for a few fresh looks at premiere episode "Re-Launch?" After all, someone's has to tell us what happens to Schmidt the day his...ahem, cast comes off, and just what happens to get Jess so down in the dumps!
Forget “who’s that girl,” you’ll want to know who that girl’s parents are! ‘New Girl’ season 2 has been on quite a casting streak of late, earlier today picking up both ‘Political Animals’ star Carla Gugino’ and ‘Forgetting Sarah Marshall player Maria Thayer for key roles, but none more key than Jess' parents! The second season of FOX's adorkable comedy has just secured Hollywood legends Jamie Lee Curtis and Rob Reiner for the roles, but when will they make their star-studded debut?
Boy, that Schmidt sure has it in with the cougars. Where earlier it was announced for 'New Girl' season 2 that 'This is 40' star Leslie Mann would portray a shot girl for Schmidt (Max Greenfield)'s re-launch party, a role that had to be swapped out for Parker Posey, now another lovely lady has walked into his life. Carla Gugino will take a role in the coming season, to begin on September 25, but how contractually steamy are things going to get?
Is two the magic number for 'New Girl?' That's the way it's starting to seem as FOX's quirky new hit enters its second season seemingly doubling up on his characters. Earlier we learned that Nick (Jake Johnson) would be getting a visit from his "future self," and now it seems Schmidt (Max Greenfield) will have a doppelganger of his very own! But who is this other Schmidt, and why does he look suspiciously like Rob Riggle?
As much as we love the first season of adorkably (yes, I said it) funny FOX sitcom 'New Girl,' we watched the show under the impression Jess, Nick, Schmidt, Winnston and Cece wouldn't find themselves in any hardcore science-fiction scenarios. That's why the recent 'New Girl' season 2 casting of 'Justified' veteran Raymond Barry has us more than a little curious, as you'll never believe who he's been tapped to play. Seriously! You really can't believe it.
