Guess Who’s Replacing Zooey Deschanel in New Girl?

 —  By

Well well, it looks like there’s a New Girl on the block (bet THAT joke has never been made before…).

Zooey Deschanel is set to be replaced on her award-winning show New Girl, and who better to take up the comedy mantle than the pillow-lipped, sultry-faced Megan Fox?

Wait. Megan Fox REPLACING Zooey?!

Fans of the show needn’t worry; this is just a temporary fixture while Zooey is away on maternity leave with her own New Girl, her first baby with husband Jacob Pechenik.

Set to ‘shake things up’, Megan will play the character of Reagan, a pharmaceutical sales rep who will rent Jess’s apartment while she’s conveniently out of town on jury duty. The Transformers star will feature in multiple episodes during series five, which is set to return to our screens in January.

There’s no doubt that this new role has come at a good time for Megan. In the last few months she’s filed for divorce from Brian Austin Green after five years of marriage – and her last film Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles didn’t exactly manage to set box offices alight.

The news of Megan Fox replacing Zooey (albeit temporarily) has been met with different reactions on Twitter. While some people think this will give them a reason to finally get watching (the pervs), others can’t bear the thought of New Girl without Zooey, even for just a few episodes.

Despite all this, maybe this is just the break Megan needs. And we seriously can’t wait to see the reactions of Nick, Winston and Schmidt when she walks in through the door. Eyes straight, Schmidt – no looking now that you’re engaged…
