New Girl is giving Jess her very own Mr. Big.
Dermot Mulroney is joining the cast of Fox’s rookie comedy as a love interest for Zooey Deschanel’s adorkably single alter ego, sources confirm to TVLine exclusively.
The 48-year-old My Best Friend’s Wedding star will play a handsome, intelligent and wealthy gentleman who also happens to be the father of one of Jess’ students. They start off disliking each other but their chemistry is undeniable.
Mulroney, whose short TV resume includes romancing Jennifer Aniston on Friends and headlining NBC’s ill-fated Rockford Files reboot, will appear in multiple episodes of New Girl beginning in March or April.
