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.

    I firmly believe that Richard Splett is the funniest character on TV right now. Good call, New Girl.

    Finally! A guest star that isn’t supposed to sleep with any of them! Sounds like fun to see Winston and him in a cop story line (:

      How can we know if he won’t be a threat to Schmidt and Cece? Or if Jess won’t fall in love with him? lol. Every guest star on this show now is a love interest, if he turns to be one too, I won’t be surprised at all… But I’m just kidding lol It does sounds like a fun character.
