If you followed the first season of FOX’s hit show New Girl, you already know that protagonist Jess spends a lot of time with models. As such, it only makes sense that a real-live model would join the New Girl cast! America’s Next Top Model alum Keenyah Hill managed to snag a spot on the show which means she’ll have the privilege of working alongside the adorkable Zooey Deschanel!
In the season finale of New Girl, Schmidt broke off his relationship with hot model Cece. But that’s not to say he’s finished with models! While Schmidt’s new love interest holds an impressive career in athletics (she’s a basketball player!), the new character is, in fact, a Top Model alum. That’s right, the beautiful Keenyah Hill is joining the cast of New Girl!
We were a bit surprised to hear that Keenyah Hill would not be playing a model on New Girl. It seems like she’d have the expertise necessary to pull off such a role! Then again, Keenyah’s probably looking to expand her acting horizons, and playing herself on TV might not be the best way of accomplishing that. Still, we are fully confident that Keenyah will have no trouble pulling out the moves in her upcoming one-on-one game with Schmidt (a game in which, according to TV Guide, Keenyah’s character “decimates” Schmidt — no surprises there).
What do you think of Keenyah Hill’s new role on New Girl? Can she pull off an acting gig, or should her resume be limited to modeling? Sound off in the comments section below!
