According to Deadline.com, Olivia Munn has just been cast for a guest-starring role on Fox’s New Girl. Munn will play a love interest to Nick (Jake Johnson). Her character Angie is described as “sexy, earthy, charming, and can hold her own with the group.” Nick’s former love interests have included an uptight lawyer Julia (Lizzy Caplan), slutty sorority girls played by a variety of actresses, and one particularly bitchy ex, Caroline (Mary Elizabeth Ellis), who doesn’t seem to go away. The idea of adding Munn as a sexy hippie to the group could make for a very interesting dynamic. It’s a fresh perspective that will certainly bring on the laughs.
Munn was recently in the flop, Babymakers, and the male stripping phenomenon, Magic Mike. She also has a regular role as an awkward but sexy economist in HBO’s newest hit, Newsroom. She’ll film her New Girl episodes before heading back to work in the Newsroom.
