Megan Fox To Star In 'New Girl' During Zooey Deschanel's Maternity Leave

Megan Fox (photosMegan Fox photos) is joining the cast of 'New Girl' for its upcoming season, replacing star Zooey Deschanel while she's on maternity leave.

Fox will appear in a multi-episode arc of the hit comedy as a pharmaceutical sales rep named Reagan who rents a room from Jess while she's sequestered on jury duty -- or at least that's how they're explaining Deschanel's absence on the series.

Her character is described as a "gorgeous, straight-shooting pharmaceutical sales rep who comes to town on business and shakes things up."

"It's insane to me that such a gorgeous person can be so funny, but I guess we just all have to accept it," says executive producer Liz Meriwether.

I've been a fan of her comedic skills since 'This is 40,' and I'm so excited to have her on the show. We had Megan in mind when we wrote this part - she's the perfect person to come in and shake these guys up."

She will first appear in the sixth episode of the upcoming season, scheduled to premiere in January 2016 for an uninterrupted run of new episodes.
