This set-up sounds like it has comic potential: Fox’s New Girl has just cast comic actress June Diane Raphael as a friend of Zooey Deschanel’s Jess.

Raphael plays a Sadie, a “smart, slightly intimidating but helpful friend, she’s an OB/GYN doctor … who’s also a lesbian.” Sadie offers Nick (Jake Johnson) an unofficial diagnosis to a “health problem.” Raphael is a guest star in the ninth episode, with the potential to become a recurring performer.

Raphael has appeared on Adult Swim’s NTSF:SD:SUV, Funny or Die and Starz’ Party Down. As everybody knows at this point, New Girl is off Fox’s grid until Nov. 1.
