Swift will arrive just in time to be a guest at the wedding of Cece (Hannah Simone) and Shivrang (guest star Satya Bhabha), EW.com reports. Going by the name of Elaine, all we know is that Swift’s character will be an important guest at the ceremony.
Could we be about to meet another of Cece’s model friends? Is Elaine an old friend of Cece and Jess (Zooey Deschanel)? Is it possible that Elaine is a girl from Shivrang’s past, much like Schmidt (Max Greenfield) is part of Cece’s romantic history? Wouldn’t that last theory be fun?
We won’t find out for sure until May 14, when the season finale airs.
This is a rare acting role for the hit country-pop singer. Swift provided the voice of Audrey in the animated film, “The Lorax,” and appeared in the ensemble film, “Valentine’s Day” as well. On television, her only prior acting credit (other than the skits performed during her stint as a “Saturday Night Live” host) is a guest role in a 2009 episode of “CSI.”
“New Girl” airs Tuesdays at 9pm on FOX.
