“New Girl” has already enlisted a group of all-star guests to spice up the loft in Season 2. Joining Zooey Deschanel and the gang will be Niecy Nash, David Walton, Leslie Mann and Rachael Harris (again) in the first few episodes of the new season.
Walton’s role is the meatiest — the former “Bent” star has signed on to recur as a new potential love interest for Jess, Entertainment Weekly reports. He’ll play a classic bad boy who mistakes Jess for someone else — obviously things work out anyway.
He’ll first appear in the Season 2 premiere along with “Knocked Up’s” Mann, per EW, who will join the gang as the shot girl for the party in honor of Schmidt’s penis cast removal.
Nash will drop by an early episode as a woman who tries to steal Jess’ purse, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Adding to the hilarity: her character just so happens to be a prostitute.
Harris, who played the vice principal of the school where Jess teaches, will return during an early Season 2 episode.
Phew — that’s a lot. Who would you love to see guest star on “New Girl” during Season 2? The show returns Tuesday, Sept. 25 at 8 p.m. and 9 p.m. on FOX.
