The actor, who’s currently charming the short skirt off of Zooey Deschanel on Fox’s New Girl, is joining the cast of HBO’s Enlightened as a love interest for Laura Dern‘s Amy, TVLine has learned.

His recurring character, Jeff Flender, is an investigative reporter that Amy enlists to help her bring down the company she works for, Abaddonn.

    Haha! Her company’s name cracks me up. They might as well drop an anvil on us that has the word “EVIL” scrawled on it – that’s essentially what they are doing by naming the company after a demon.

    Anyways – YAY more Dermot Mulroney!
