Fox's New Girl is getting a new guy for Valentine's Day.

True Blood's Ryan Kwanten will guest star in the Feb. 14 episode as Oliver, a guy who meets the newly single Jess (Zooey Deschanel) at a bar where she's out celebrating her first Valentine's Day as a single lady, The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed.

As first reported by E!, Jess will enlist Schmidt (Max Greenfield) as her wingman as she hits the town on the Hallmark holiday.
