Exclusive New Girl First Look: Big Love's Jeanne Tripplehorn Does Battle With [Spoiler]!

Jeanne Tripplehorn makes her New Girl debut next Tuesday, and we’ve got your exclusive first look at the Big Love alumna playing the manipulative ex-wife of Jess’ new “fancyman,” Russell (played by Dermot Mulroney).

“Kids” (airing April 17) finds Ouli (Tripplehorn) coming face-to-face with her former hubby’s new girl when Jess offers to babysit the exes’ pre-teen daughter for the night. But since her initial appearance in the aforementioned installment is super brief, we’ve got a preview of Tripplehorn in action in her second episode (airing April 24) — which clearly shows that the two ladies are not off to a good start.

  • Isn’t his daughter her student? That must be a little awkward to have your teacher babysit you. Although if you need homework help it’s very convenient.

  • I am so excited for this. To this day, I believe it is a shame she was never nominated for an Emmy for her work on Big Love.
