Rachael Harris is set to party with Zooey Deschanel: The actress/comedienne (The Daily Show, The Hangover) will guest-star on the Fox comedy New Girl. She’ll play Tanya, a quirky vice principal at the school where Jess (Deschanel) teaches; she loans Jess a bus for Schmidt’s birthday bash on the condition that she can cut loose with them too. (There may be a stripper pole involved.)

The episode will air later this season, and Harris — who stars in the upcoming indie comedy Natural Selection — may recur on the show.

    Zooey Deschanel is lovely, gorgeous, sexy and beautiful. She’s amazing. That woman is incredible. She is one well-endowed lady. I’d like to get my hands on her ‘ample assets’, if you’ll pardon the expression.

      Emily is better looking, can act and dosen’t ride on the fact that she’s “adorable”.

      • Trace

        Emily can act? Ha! Thanks, I needed the laugh.

      • emilie

        HA, Emily is better looking? Are you blind? I’m sorry, Zooey doesn’t only play “on the fact that she’s ‘adorable'”, she can also sing like an angel and act as well.

        And please, tell me again… Emily is a better actress than Zooey? Hahahah, funny stuff.

        My best friend has just announced her wedding with a great man who is a cele+brity!
        They met-via { Himillionaires&c;o;m }
        It is nice club for rich men or pretty girls mate.
        You do not need to be wealthy or famous, but you can meet your true love, it’s worthy a try.

      • ally

        i agree 100% Emily is beautiful AND has a personality

  • Jason

    Ha. That won’t make me keep watching either. FOX is really trying to do everything they can to keep people watching this crap fest. I wonder what would the ratings have been if New Girl was before Glee or after Raising Hope. It has a golden time slot.

    • AJ

      How does it have a golden time slot? it does BETTER than Glee, Raising Hope has never been strong, and it faces NCIS and Dancing with the Stars

      Where is your logic?

      • Tye-Grr

        Exactly. ‘The New Girl’ has been doing fantastic in the ratings since day one and has been out performing both Fox shows that it’s sandwiched between. It already has a full season pick up and it’s going to be around for a while.

        unfortunately. not all of us have drunk the koo-laid. new girl sucks.

    • jimmy

      GLEE sucks. Worst show on TV.

      • Anna

        Oh, please. Glee is good not great but good. So, your’re telling me ‘Charlie’s Angels, Jersey Shore, Keep Up With the Kardashians, anything on BET, Pan Am, Desperate Houswives, Whitney, Up All Night, Suburgatory, Body of Proof, New Girl, and I could go on and on, is better than Glee? HA. Your hate for the show is cute now time for your bottle.

  • Mark

    I like her. Her deadpan delivery greatly amuses me.

  • PJ

    Just when you thought the show couldn’t get any worse!

  • BeBe

    Love this show! Sounds like a funny episode.

  • Jen

    Yay! Love her!

  • Jim in SoCal

    Two points:
    1. Who’s Emily? (And NO she’s not as Cute as Zooey)
    2. Zooey is not adorable … she’s Adorkable … big difference, and she’s pretty much cornered the market on Adorkable!

    • Carol

      @Jim, I don’t know if you’re serious or not, but Emily is Zooey Deschanel’s older sister. She plays Temperance Brennan on Bones.

    ***my best friend’s mom makes $77 an hour on the computer. She has been out of job for 9 months but last month her check was $7487 just working on the computer for a few hours. Read about it here NuttyRich.c0m

  • Showtees

    I’m so tired of hearing about this show….It’s really pretty terrible. I love Zooey but this show is awkward and uncomfortable to watch

  • Tegan Jovanka

    If Rachel Harris isn’t wearing glasses, there’s no point of having her on the show.

  • 4815162342

    Damn it- she’ll ruin the show. She’s uber annoying!!!
