New Girl, Meet Your New Roommate, Megan Fox

They wrote a part with Megan in mind

Jessica Roy

New Girl, meet the new girl!

Fox announced Thursday that Megan Fox would be joining the cast of the show in the upcoming fifth season. She's going to have a multi-episode arc as a pharmaceutical sales rep named Reagan who sublets a room from Jess (Zooey Deschanel) while she's sequestered on jury duty. (That's some major jury duty, but in reality Deschanel is on maternity leave since she just gave birth in August.)

"We had Megan in mind when we wrote this part," executive producer Liz Meriwether said in a statement. "It's insane to me that such a gorgeous person can be so funny, but I guess we just all have to accept it."

Reagan is described as a straight-shooter who's going to "shake things up in the loft." Her arc will begin in Episode 6 this season.

New Girl returns to Fox in January.
