Playing Megan Fox Is Headed to 'New Girl' – and She’s Shaking Things Up!

New Girl just got a little foxy.

Megan Fox is headed back to television, landing a multi-episode arc on the upcoming fifth season of Fox’s hit comedy, the network announced Thursday.

The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles star will play Reagan, a gorgeous, straight-shooting pharmaceutical sales rep who comes to town on business and shakes things up in the loft when she rents out Jess’ (Zooey Deschanel) room while she is sequestered on jury duty.

But she won’t be making her debut until the sixth episode in the season, which won’t premiere until January.

This comes after Deschanel welcomed her first child with husband Jacob Pechenik earlier this summer. Deschanel will miss four episodes while Fox takes over, The Hollywood Reporter says.

Fox is just the latest addition to the brand-new season of New Girl, which will include the 100th episode, joining fellow guest stars Fred Armisen, Taran Killam, Nasim Pedrad, Rob Riggle, Henry Winkler, Julie Hagerty and John Cho.
