Taylor is playing a scorned ex-girlfriend — but, ironically, not herself — on the May 14 episode of the Fox comedy.
Just like the inner workings of Taylor Swift‘s heart, the singer’s guest role on the season of finale of New Girl is shrouded in mystery. All we know, via showrunner Liz Meriwether and this first-look photo from Entertainment Weekly, is that Taylor’s playing someone‘s bitter ex-girlfriend named Elaine — and yes, she’s crashing Cece’s (Hannah Simone) wedding.
“I’m a huge fan of hers,” Liz tells the mag. “I was fully geeking out about meeting [Taylor]. I didn’t go to meet her right away because I kind of had to compose myself; there’s a 14-year-old girl inside of me. … She was quoting lines to us from the show. It was a really exciting night.”
The photo only shows Taylor interacting with Zooey Deschanel‘s Jess, but it sounds like “Elaine” will make the rounds before her guest stint is up.
“She came in and is really nice,” Jake Johnson tells the mag. ”It’s not an easy scene. There were probably 70 extras there — though I’m sure she performs to so much bigger [crowds] than that on a regular basis. She had, like, a little monologue and delivered it perfectly. Liz gave her alternative jokes and lines, she delivered them all perfectly.”
‘New Girl’ Season Finale: What Happens To Nick & Jess?
Fans are still reeling from Nick and Jess finally having sex this week, and although Liz promises the pair will attempt to DTR before the season is over, it doesn’t look like things will go too well for them on the finale.
Take this picture, for example:
Like I said, not too well.
