The O.C.‘s Adam Brody is reuniting with his former network via a guest stint on New Girl, TVLine has learned.

VIDEO | Exclusive: New Girl‘s Schmidt-Cece-Coach Triangle Turns Violent

In an episode slated to shoot next week (and air in early 2014), Brody will play Berkley, a long-ago ex-boyfriend of Jess’ (Zooey Deschanel) who’s now a married stay-at-home dad. He’s open with his feelings and prides himself on having mastered the art of being an ex, which is probably why he and Jess (allegedly) remained the best of friends after their breakup.

Brody’s recent TV credits have included FX’s The League and Showtime’s House of Lies.

  • Love him. I’m bit disappointed he didn’t go huge after OC. He should appear on HoD just to mess with the Zoey a bit.. :)

    • I’m guessing that they’re not REALLY the best of friends, he just thinks that they are. Or something like that.

  • I LOVED Adam on OC, and yes, I agree, he should have made it big after the show was over!!! He is sooo talented! Wouldn’t it be a hoot if he showed up on “Hart of Dixie” as Zoe’s old flame!! That would be an awesome episode, I would love to see them together again!
