New Girl is opening up its fourth season with a bang, bringing in a real life Jess to compete with Zooey Deschanel's character Jess.
On Wednesday, TV Line reported that Jessica Biel will be making a guest star appearance on New Girl for their season premiere.
Biel got her start on television 7th. Heaven, but since then has only really appeared in movies, where she has been in hits such as both Valentine's Day and New Year's Eve. Biel will be playing Kat, a woman who competes with Jess over a guy. Evidently, in the season opener, which will air on FOX on September 16, the main characters of the show will compete with one another in an attempt to make a romantic conquest at a wedding. Presumably other complications will ensue for the other characters, but Jess' main issue will likely be with Kat, who TV Line says will be "the hottest scientist in the world."
Last season, New Girl decided to make Jess and Jake Johnson's Nick Miller into a romantic couple, but then gave up on that idea almost as soon as they began it. Clearly, the opener of the fourth season indicates that the show will be going back to having everybody get involved in their own sexy hi-jinx.
This is not the first big name guest star New Girl has snagged, and frankly it was a much bigger coup when they got the enigmatic Prince to appear as himself in their post-Super Bowl episode. It might be hard for Biel to live up to that.
