Justin Long To Play Zooey Deschanel's Love Interest On 'New Girl'

Justin Long has joined Fox comedy 'New Girl' as Zooey Deschanel's love interest.

The new comedy stars Deschanel as an unlucky in love teacher in her 20s who, after a breakup, moves into a loft with three single guys who help her re-enter the dating world.

"When I read the script for the pilot, I don't know if I've ever seen a part that was as charming and exciting and made me think," she recently said about the series. "I was laughing out loud."

"I obviously needed to play this part, this is me. I mean, not actually me, but it is a part of me, a secret part."

Long will play a music teacher who catches Jess' eye. He will appear in at least three episodes for now, with the first one being episode six.
