Justin Long to play Zooey Deschanel's love interest on 'The New Girl'

Adorable hipster Zooey Deschanel just gained an adorable hipster love interest on The New Girl. Justin Long (Going the Distance) will recur for three episodes on the new Fox comedy, playing Paul, a music teacher and and a suitor for Deschanel’s character Jess. It seems like a match made in heaven, but Paul may have some heavy competition from Jess’ three male roommates. The show will focus on the recently jilted Jess as she transitions from life in a serious relationship to life in an apartment with three random guys, so Paul will probably have issues if he wants some alone time.

New Girl will premiere Sept. 20 at 9 p.m. on Fox, with Long’s arc set to begin on episode six. With Long’s presence, how many Macs should we expect to see in that apartment?

    Shaunna – you’re unfunny. Just report the story. Don’t try to spruce it up with your terrible jabs at humor.

    • ryan

      a mac joke… lame

    • tvocrats

      Sandra Gonzalez should have wrote it. Her jabs are golden

    • LOL

      No one can explain what a “hipster” is.

  • Templar

    She’d be cuter with Joseph Gordon-Levitt . JL will do, I guess.

    • Templar

      Abd BTW I typed that on my Mac.

      • Templar

        Sorry “and”

      • Wha’ever

        Hahaha, trouble with your Mac’s keyboard ?

      • Templar

        No. Trouble with inept fingers.

    • Tool

    • Grubi

      “Ed” reference. I like it.

      • Alanna

        agreed! i super like it! why isn’t that show on dvd!!! unless it is…and i haven’t found it yet???

    • Amanda

      Have to agree, that Ed reference was golden!

  • Jack

    Welp, guess I won’t be watching this show. That guy is so grating.

    • Buddymoore

      Agreed. I’ve never seen him in anything that wasn’t absolutely ruined by his presence.

  • Meli

    Geez, the previews of this show were so promising. It was going to be about her rediscovering how to interact socially and all that. Now we’re already casting a love interest? Talk about ruining the premise of a show before it airs!

    • What?

      it says love interest, not long term boyfriend.Isn’t dating a part of interacting socially?

  • tomm

    He’s kinda wimpy

    Part of the appeal of New Girl was that she didn’t have a love interest and was inept at finding one. What does Fox do? Run over the show’s one major point with a bus. Good one, Fox! You ruined it for everyone! I hope you’re happy and Simon Cowell shakes you down for lunch money after school.

  • Me

    It’s just three eps, people! Don’t be so down on the “love interest.” At three spisodes, I’d say it’s an unsuccessful relationship, probably just for laughs only. And see Going the Distance, vastly underrated.
    Justin’s Mom. :)

    • Rory

      I LOVED Going the Distance. So funny, and under-rated. Great date movie.

  • jeff

    Lame show, Lame Actors.

  • how does this guy get work

    he is unattractive, unfunny, cannot act, he is like if you need “some guy” he is just there; how he got a part in a Die Hard movie with Bruce Willis is even more astounding; do people in Hollywood owe Drew Barrymore some favors? seriously. as for Zooey, I think she would be a lot more adorable if she stopped thinking it so much

  • tina

    zooey is freaking sexy hot

  • Shannon

    Way to taint what looks like a really cute show with JL. Can’t. Stand. Him. The only person that loves Justin Long is Justin Long.

    I do believe all the concepts you have presented on your post. They’re very convincing and will definitely work. Nonetheless, the posts are too short for novices. May just you please prolong them a little from next time? Thank you for the post.
