veep reid scott new girl season 4 premiere gi 'New Girl' Season 4 premiere: 'Veep's' Reid Scott to attract Jess' attention

In the “New Girl” Season 4 premiere, Jess Day (Zooey Deschanel) will have her eye on a new man, played by “Veep” co-star Reid Scott.

Scott will play Ted, according to The Hollywood Reporter. A handsome and charming fellow met at a wedding, Ted will catch the eye of both Jess and Jessica Biel’s guest character, Kat. Since Kat is being described as the “hottest scientist in the world,” Jess could be in for some tough competition.

On “Veep,” Scott plays Dan Egan, the highly ambitious aide who is typically far too busy for such things as dating and weddings. “New Girl” returns to FOX Tuesday, Sept. 16 at 9 p.m. ET/PT.
