Olivia Munn Becomes The New “New Girl”

September 27, 2012 02:56 PM by Stephanie Gustafson

Sorry Zooey Deschanel — you’ll have to step aside, because you are no longer the newest girl on New Girl! Former Project Runway judge Olivia Munn is taking that honor. According to FOX, Olivia will be playing Nick’s new love interest. That, of course, means that fans will have to wait a bit longer before Jess and Nick officially become a couple. Darn.

The casting director and writers for hit TV series New Girl really have a thing for models!  It’s not enough that main character Jess has a model for a best friend — or that the actress who plays that best friend (Hannah Simone) used to be a model. Nope, New Girl, needed a new crop of actresses-turned-models, which is why America’s Next Top Model’s Keenyah Hill and Project Runway’s Olivia Munn were recruited to be love interests for Nick and Schmidt. Keenyah’s role was ultimately recast, with Carla Gugino ultimately attracting Schmidt’s attention, but it appears that once Olivia Munn joins New Girl, she’ll stick around. The actress is set to start filming in the near future.

Described as “sexy, earthy, charming,” Olivia’s character will serve as sharp contrast to the adorkable Jess. There might be a bit of competition going on, as Nick’s new girlfriend is able to “hold her own with the group.” That’s a big uh oh for Jess, because the one advantage she had over Nick’s former girlfriend was that she was a good (although occasionally awkward) fit with the guys. It’ll be interesting to see how the two get along!

Are you excited to see Olivia Munn on New Girl? Or do you wish that Nick and Jess would just start dating already? Feel free to share your thoughts below!

    She is a horrible actress. There goes another one of my favorite shows, why can’t they leave things alone. She can’t act and plays the same character

    Olivia Munn was a Project Runway judge? Or is that the character she is going to play in The New Girl? In real life Ms. Munn has never been on that Project Runway according to IMDB, unless they don’t keep track of that kind of stuff.
