Walker will play Molly, a “mean girl” teacher at Jess’ (Zooey Deschanel) new school (according to a report from TVLine). Because she thinks Jess is trying to suck up to the principal, Molly — one of the cool teachers — isn’t going to be such a fan of the peppy new girl at the school.
This will mark a bit of a role reversal for Walker, who previously had the “nice girl” part on “Don’t Trust the B—.” She played June opposite Krysten Ritter‘s evil roommate, Chloe.
It sounds like Jess’ new job will be full of nasty co-workers, considering the casting news that has already appeared. Angela Kinsey (“The Office”) will play another of the troublesome teachers in that same episode. Other guest stars expected for Season 3 include Damon Wayans Jr. (reprising his “New Girl” pilot role of Coach) and Eva Amurri.
“New Girl” Season 3 premieres on Tuesday, Sept. 17 on FOX.
