New Girl: Veep's Sam Richardson Recruited for Season 5 Guest Role

If Sam Richardson can bear to have Selina Meyer as his boss, a job in the LAPD should be a piece of cake… right?

The Veep actor has booked a guest stint on New Girl‘s upcoming fifth season, TVLine has learned exclusively.

Richardson will appear in one episode of the Fox comedy as a not-particularly-bright, very clumsy police officer who gets paired up with Winston. Season 5 bows Tuesday, Jan. 5, at 8/7c; Richardson’s episode is slated for March.

In addition to his turn as Veep‘s bumbling White House liaison Richard Splett, Richardson has worked on Drunk History, Arrested Development and The Office.
