Fox’s New Girl starring Zooey Deschanel is a huge hit, but apparently one hipster dream girl at a time isn’t enough for some viewers. The show is bringing in Party Down’s Lizzy Caplan for three episodes.
Caplan will guest star as Julia Baker, a new love interest for bartender Nick Miller—played by Jake Johnson—who has been struggling to get over a breakup. Julia is highly educated and refined (as opposed to “adorkable”), and her plot line, according to the Hollywood Reporter, will involve Nick’s anxiety over how the “perfect” woman that he met at an art gallery might react to his slobby roommates after she meets them at a party.
Adding Caplan is great news for New Girl viewers, even if she’ll be on the show for only a brief arc. Meanwhile, Party Down fans who have been jonesing for a Lizzy Caplan fix will have something to tide them over while they wait for movie version of the prematurely-canceled Starz series to surface.
And remember, Caplan is starring with Community‘s Alison Brie in an upcoming comedy flick.
