Additionally, Lyonne — best known from the American Pie movies — will appear in an upcoming episode as a wedding guest who Schmidt (Greenfield) can’t stand, but always ends up having sex with at nuptials.

Lyonne and Bell join a roster of guest stars that includes Justin Long as a love interest for Jess and Katie Cassidy as “someone I’m in love with,” previews Greenfield.

“I don’t know if she’s interested in loving me back,” he adds. “She’s someone that I’ve known and that I’m slightly obsessed with.”
