Song, who starred in the Disney Channel series The Suite Life With Zack and Cody, will play Daisy, and her entrance is timed to the previously announced guest gig for Brooklyn Decker as desirable bar patron Holly. The competitive Daisy starts up with Winston after seeing him (and likely everyone else) strike out with Holly.

Winston has been on the mend since he broke up with Shelby (Kali Hawk) earlier this season. Hawk's recurring role as Winston's girlfriend lasted seven episodes.

Song, fresh off an arc on ABC's Scandal, is repped by UTA.
