'Veep' Star Heads to 'New Girl'
New Girl's season-premiere love triangle is complete.
The Hollywood Reporter has learned that Veep star Reid Scott will appear on the Fox comedy for its upcoming fourth season, playing a wedding guest and the object of Jess' (Zooey Deschanel) affection at a wedding.
STORY Jessica Biel to Appear on 'New Girl'
News of Scott's addition goes hand-in-hand with Jessica Biel's gig on the Sept. 16 season premiere. He'll play Ted, the charming man who inspires some not-so-friendly competition between Jess and Kat (Biel), "the hottest scientist in the world."
In addition to his role as Dan Egan on Veep, Reid has several films on deck — including Nancy Meyers' The Intern, which recently started filming in New York.
He and Biel will tape their New Girl appearances during the first week of August, when the 20th Century Fox TV series starts production.
Scott is repped by Gersh and Impression Entertainment.
