So this is happening.

Olivia Munn To Do Arc on Fox's 'New Girl'



Another day, another New Girl guest star!

Olivia Munn, who most recently did a lot of scene-stealing on Aaron Sorkin's HBO drama The Newsroom, is set to guest star on an upcoming episode of the Fox hit comedy, reps for the actress and network confirmed to E! News.

And like so many guest stars before her (Lake Bell, Lizzy Caplan, and Katrina Bowden), the Magic Mike star will be romancing one of Zooey Deschanel's onscreen roomies...

Munn is set to play the sexy, earthy, and charming Angie, Nick's (Jake Johnson) new love interest, who can hold her own with the quippy group. 

Fret not, Newsroom fans, as Munn's multi-episode arc on New Girl will be filmed in about two weeks, before production starts on season two of the HBO drama. Her New Girl episodes are slated to run in November.

"Welcome to the show," Johnson tweeted Munn after the news broke.

Don't hate her, don't love her. Meh.

sexy, earthy, and charming

never would've guessed
harlighquinn 29th-Sep-2012 02:58 pm (UTC)
I don't really find her funny, pretty, or sexy but I guess I'm in the minority
musicnextdoor 29th-Sep-2012 03:38 pm (UTC)
I don't think you are.
solsty 29th-Sep-2012 04:00 pm (UTC)
You are (hopefully) not.

She's none of the above. She's not ugly though.

Here for 9 gif.
daninekintscher 29th-Sep-2012 02:07 pm (UTC)
I do not like this lady. There is something inherently evil about her, I just don't know what it is... yet.
ilouboutin 29th-Sep-2012 02:07 pm (UTC)
I feel like this is a repeat of lizzy caplan's character?
wits 29th-Sep-2012 02:10 pm (UTC)
wasn't lizzy's character a lawyer? thats not really "earthy"
wits 29th-Sep-2012 02:08 pm (UTC)
i hated her until i watched the newsroom and she played the only likable character on the whole show
baroness 29th-Sep-2012 02:09 pm (UTC)
i actually really like her on newsroom
nyse 30th-Sep-2012 03:52 am (UTC)
I'm pretty sure I like the character more than like I like Olivia Munn playing the character. She just manages not to fuck it up.
prophecypro 29th-Sep-2012 02:11 pm (UTC)
I'm cool with it..

But haven't watched New Girl regularly as I did when it started.

lollapoe 29th-Sep-2012 03:46 pm (UTC)
The new episodes were pretty funny, especially the second.
astralwish 29th-Sep-2012 02:12 pm (UTC)
newsroom is soooo bad I tried getting into it but like 4 episodes in I just couldn't, with the ridiculous dramatic cheesy music and that horrible character of Emily from Friends :"(
ugly_jacket 29th-Sep-2012 02:16 pm (UTC)
i watched the whole thing but i still thought it was awful, all the dramatic cheesy yelling monologues
pandaklr 29th-Sep-2012 02:19 pm (UTC)
that's not emily from friends, lol
astralwish 29th-Sep-2012 02:23 pm (UTC)
oop she looks like it
prophecypro 29th-Sep-2012 02:26 pm (UTC)
The 2 or 3 episodes I've seen have been alright to me but I could also see the problems that would turn others off (so righteously indigant, the writers must be Canadian)

Then again, I also liked how Studio 60 on the strip was and it had the same qualities as this show that divded people (actually saying divided is probably generous)

Trying to tell an audience how the media works and thinks in 2012 seems a bit naive of narrative for a show, but Im alright with it cause I can watch Jeff Daniels, Slumdog homie and Olivia in most things.

It flows which is the one way to describe it
maryhurt 29th-Sep-2012 02:39 pm (UTC)
honestly Alison Pill and her character ruins it for me, which is a shame, because I think she's great.

the writing isn't West Wing-amazing levels, but the actors ensemble is amazing, and they're doing a very good job (again, Pill being the exeception). Overall, it's a good show. I'm looking forward 2nd season, except for anything Maggie related.
flaviavn 29th-Sep-2012 02:12 pm (UTC)
someone explains New Girl to me please. Because the fact that it hasn't been cancelled yet makes no sense to me.
babyyouloveit 29th-Sep-2012 02:14 pm (UTC)
Apparently it gets better as the season goes on, but I have never seen a pilot of a show that is that awful.
fancypotatoes 29th-Sep-2012 02:30 pm (UTC)
it does get better but i also resent myself for liking something with zooey in it.
ponpiri 29th-Sep-2012 02:32 pm (UTC)
It's a cute show and everybody loves zooey apparently
pineandapple 29th-Sep-2012 02:45 pm (UTC)
It's only because of the guys. I couldn't care less about Zooey.
revertigo 29th-Sep-2012 03:28 pm (UTC)
i think it's cute :3
killmyunicorn 29th-Sep-2012 04:06 pm (UTC)
It get better with time. I hate the first few episodes and now I love it.
Also they toned down the twee a bit.
crazyventures 29th-Sep-2012 04:20 pm (UTC)
Summing it up in one sentence: Watch it for everyone other than Zooey Deschanel
turnofthelightv 29th-Sep-2012 04:34 pm (UTC)
because male characters on the show are flawless

claudieko 29th-Sep-2012 05:17 pm (UTC)
Schmidt makes the show. Zooey's character could die and I wouldn't notice.
pettyscenes 29th-Sep-2012 06:40 pm (UTC)
Personally, I love the female and male characters. The show wouldn't be the same without Jess or Cece.
wauwy 29th-Sep-2012 02:15 pm (UTC)
Don't hate her, don't love her. Meh.

ia but her pr team needs a gold fucking medal, for real.
bostongirl2003 30th-Sep-2012 08:35 pm (UTC)
all that paying off websites to post her pictures constantly apparently paid off!
goldenmeans 29th-Sep-2012 02:16 pm (UTC)
Guess I won't be watching New Girl anymore.
musicnextdoor 29th-Sep-2012 03:43 pm (UTC)
Also skipping her eps. Hopefully by then Happy Endings will be back/up against NG. It's much better anyway.
pandaklr 29th-Sep-2012 02:17 pm (UTC)
I HATED when she was on the Daily Show. It was the first time I really felt negative feelings toward that show (and about the only time because it's pretty top notch)... I feel like I haven't seen her in a while on there, but I don't watch as often anymore.
ratchetry 29th-Sep-2012 02:18 pm (UTC)
Yessss. People who deny she I'd the only good thing about The Newsroom/was great in Magic Mike need to get their taste checked
blowjob 30th-Sep-2012 01:30 am (UTC)
OMFG beautiful icon
hada_princesa04 29th-Sep-2012 02:20 pm (UTC)
I loved her on Attack of the Show! and she's great in The Newsroom imo. She's one of the more likable characters tbh
prophecypro 29th-Sep-2012 02:22 pm (UTC)
I think she's been alright post-AOTS. I cant say I was too surprised she did well on Newsroom. For all the critcism that show gets it's still a bit more high brow (comparativley speaking) than her old stuff.
