Newly-single actress Megan Fox isn’t going to let a break up slow down her career — she just landed a new role as a pharmaceutical rep!
That’s right — Fox has signed in another Fox; Megan Fox that is. The network announced on Sept. 16 that the actress will appear in multiple episodes of season five of New Girl, while star Zooey Deschanel is out on maternity leave. So excited for Megan’s return to TV!
Megan will play Reagan, a stunning (of course) pharmaceutical sales rep who rents out Jess’ room while she’s on jury duty. Described as a “straight-shooter,” she’s bound to affect everyone in one way or another. Megan will make her first appearance in episode six — Zooey already filmed the first five episodes for the season before taking leave. She gave birth in August!
While we’ve gotten used to seeing Megan on the big screen, long before that, she was a TV star — specifically sitcoms. She had roles in What I Like About You, Two and a Half Men and Hope & Faith.
Megan Fox: The Whole Package
“It’s insane to me that such a gorgeous person can be so funny, but I guess we just all have to accept it,” executive producer Liz Meriwether said in a statement. “I’ve been a fan of her comedic skills since This is 40, and I’m so excited to have her on the show. We had Megan in mind when we wrote this part — she’s the perfect person to come in and shake these guys up.”
She definitely is the whole package: funny, gorgeous and a great actress. It’s nice to see that while her personal life isn’t going so hot right now, she can still be doing amazing things — plus, we totally missed her on TV! New Girl will return to Fox in January. Are you excited for Megan? Let us know!
