New Girl Taps Masters of Sex Star Caitlin FitzGerald for 'Important' Role

Caitlin FitzGerald knows a thing or two about getting physical — but what about giving physicals?

That question will be answered when the Masters of Sex actress guest-stars on New Girl, as TVLine has exclusively learned.

FitzGerald will appear in one of the (newly renewed!) Fox comedy’s two May 3 installments, playing an old medical-school friend of Jess’ on-again beau, Sam (David Walton). According to executive producer Brett Baer, FitzGerald’s character is “a very important role that will tee up the rest of the season.”

In addition to her work as Libby Masters on Masters of Sex, FitzGerald’s TV credits include Gossip Girl, Blue Bloods and Law & Order: Special Victims Unit.
