Exclusive: Fox's New Girl Enlists Lake Bell and Natasha Lyonne
The sublime new comedy (premiering tonight at 9/8c) about a quirky, broken-hearted girl (Zooey Deschanel) who moves in with a trio of guys, has snapped up funny ladies Lake Bell and Natasha Lyonne to guest star, TVLine has learned.
Bell, who can currently be seen on Adult Swim’s Childrens Hospital, “comes on in Episode 3 and plays a potential love interest for Jake Johnson’s character Nick,” Max Greenfield, who plays one of the roomies, tell us.
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.
“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.”
