Megan Fox will be replacing Zooey Deschanel during the fifth season of Fox’s New Girl.
Zooey will be taking time off to spend with her husband Jacob Pechenik and baby daughter. Don’t worry New Girl fans, her break is only temporary.
According to Tribute.ca, Megan’s character Reagan is described as ”a gorgeous, straight-shooting pharmaceutical sales rep who comes to town on business and shakes things up when she rents out Jess’ (Zooey) room while she is sequestered on jury duty.”
New Girl executive producer Liz Meriwether commented: ”It’s insane to me that such a gorgeous person can be so funny, but I guess we just all have to accept it. 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.”
The news was met with some mixed reactions from fans.
Do you think Megan will do a good job on New Girl?
