Odette Annable may be bringing the drama to Fox’s New Girl…
The 27-year-old half-Cuban American actress has landed a guest-starring role on Zooey Deschanel’s hit sitcom.
Annable will play a potentially recurring love interest for Nick (Jake Johnson), according to TVLine, which could throw a wrench in the blossoming love between Nick and Jess (Deschanel).
Annable will play Shane, a perky and preppy management school grad who is Nick’s new boss at the bar. Per the casting notice for the role, Shane “unabashedly” starts having a fling with her new subordinate.
Annable’s casting comes less than a week after Nick and Jess shared their first kiss.
Annable, whose credits also include Breaking In and Brothers & Sisters, will soon kick off a multi-episode arc in Cinemax’s new drama Banshee. She’s also set to appear in CBS’ new series Golden Boy later this year, as well begin shooting the film The Truth About Lies.
