Megan Fox Replacing Zooey Deschanel on New Girl Following Divorce from Brian Austin Green
It looks like Megan Fox and Brian Austin Green getting divorced may be a good thing for Fox’s career as Fox will be working on the hit sitcom, New Girl, as the maternity replacement for Zooey Deschanel.
Deschanel filmed the first five episodes of New Girl Season 5 before giving birth to her daughter in August. Temporarily replacing Deschanel will be Fox, who can be seen beginning with episode six. Fox will appear in multiple episodes playing a pharmaceutical sales rep, Reagan, who comes to town on business and shakes things up in the apartment when she rents out Jess’ room while she is sequestered on jury duty.
In a statement released by the executive producer of New Girl, Liz Meriwether, she was surprised as everyone else that someone so beautiful (and known for her looks is also funny saying,
“It’s insane to me that such a gorgeous person can be so funny, but I guess we just all have to accept it. 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.”
Besides shaking the guys up, something tells us the guys will fall head over heels for the gorgeous beauty. Will Nick end up dating Reagan? This will definitely be interesting to watch.
Before Transformers sent Fox into the forefront of the publics mind, the actress appeared on sitcoms including, What I Like About You, Two and a Half Men and Hope & Faith.
Unfortunately for all the New Girl fans out there, you will have to wait until January to see Season 5.
What do you think about Fox temporarily filling Deschanel’s shoes? Can anyone fill Jess Day’s shoes?
