Megan Fox on New Girl: Showrunner teases arc
The men of New Girl mostly live in their own bubble of equally bizarre, equally immature roommates — but that bubble’s about to burst thanks to an upcoming arc on the show starring Megan Fox as Reagan, a pharmaceutical rep who moves in while Jess (Zooey Deschanel) is off serving jury duty.
“Most of the characters in the show are very weird and neurotic and not really type-A characters, and so she’s coming in and shaking them up a little bit,” showrunner Liz Meriwether tells EW. “What’s great is that she’s this really tough-talking, strong, truth-telling character that comes into the loft and kind of calls everybody out. She’s not putting up with any of their crap in a great way.”

Zooey Deschanel plays lovable Jess, who is plodding through life with a good group of friends.
