Who’s that girl? It’s Swift!
For New Girl‘s relationship-centric May 14 finale, who better to cameo as a wedding guest than Taylor Swift (right, with star Zooey Deschanel) — the music megastar who wrote the (song)book on love, break-ups, and everything in between? Swift cameos as a woman named Elaine. Though showrunner Liz Meriwether remains coy about what exactly brings Elaine to the nuptials of Cece (Hannah Simone) and Shivrang (Satya Bhabha), she admits the casting was no coincidence. “I’m a huge fan of hers,” she says. “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.” Apparently the feeling was mutual, Meriwether recalls: “She was quoting lines to us from the show. It was a really exciting night.” READ FULL STORY »
Shippers may still be reeling over New Girl‘s Cece (Hannah Simone) forsaking Schmidt (Max Greenfield) to walk down the aisle with her Indian beau Shivrang (Satya Bhabha), but the model herself is ready to party in Tuesday night’s episode. In an exclusive preview clip, Simone spills the dirt on the surprise bachelorette party Jess (Zooey Deschanel) throws Cece — not to mention all the phallic decorations, revelations, and staged abductions that follow. Watch it after the jump. READ FULL STORY »
New Girlfans have relished putting together the puzzle that is Nick Miller, TV’s most lovable thirtysomething curmudgeon. Back in January, the episode ”A Father’s Love” introduced one piece in the form of Nick’s scamming dad Walt (Dennis Farina). This Tuesday, an unexpected trip to Chicago offers a few more: Nick’s mother Bonnie (Margo Martindale), brother Jamie (Nick Kroll), and cousin Bobby (Bill Burr). The reasons that force Nick and the roommates to visit the Windy City may be dramatic, but the results are nothing short of hilarious.
In an exclusive video, Martindale and Kroll join Jake Johnson, who plays Nick, to tease “Chicago.” As for how star Zooey Deschanel ends up in an Elvis jumpsuit — and what the meet-not-so-cute between Nick’s family and Jess (Deschanel) could mean for the roomfriends’ relationship… well you’ll just have to watch below to find out.

Nick and Jess kissed over a month ago, or, in television time, four episodes ago. But don’t worry… we found out Monday night at the New Girl PaleyFest panel that it’s still the thing that everyone wants to talk about. Both the discussion and the sneak peek of next week’s new episode, ”Quick Hardening Caulk,” proved that the kiss was anything but old news.
Even though conversation kept coming back to The Kiss — and what it meant, and what it will mean, and how long they were planning it — the cast and producers did touch on a few other subjects, including Cece’s sudden engagement, the group’s upcoming trip to Chicago, and the mystery behind Schmidt’s first name. The energy between the cast and producers was infectious, and you almost wished that the series creator Elizabeth Meriwether could give herself a role on the show too. Jake Johnson even sang the theme song for the audience, after Zooey Deschanel declined.
