According to a report in The Hollywood Reporter the 32-year old actress will be appearing in the FOX show as a “hot scientist” who plays a love rival to Zooey Deschanel’s character Jess.
THR say that the plot of the episode revolves around a bet the New Girl group have to see who can get the most action at a wedding. Deschanel’s character Jess is of course now single and sets her sights on a particular man only to find that she is in competition with Biel’s character who has the tagline “the hottest scientist in the world.” Sounds like this might make a good transfer to a Big Bang Theory episode to us. If of course things are resolved as far as signing up the cast following the current pay deal problems.
It is not Jessica Biel’s first foray into the world of television as she previously starred as preacher’s daughter Mary Camden, later Mary Rivera, in the popular family drama series 7th Heaven.
Jessica is better known for her movie work though with appearances in The Illusionist (2006), The A-Team (2010) and Hitchcock (2012) where she played Vera Miles, the actress who took the part of Janet Leigh’s older sister in Psycho.
Jessica, who married singer Justin Timberlake in 2012, was named as Esquire’s Sexiest Woman Alive in 2005.
You won’t have to wait that long to see Jessica appear as the hottest scientist in the world as New Girl returns to screens in the US on 16 September.
