Megan Fox Gets Candid About Being New Girl's Newest Girl

9 February 2016 12:00 PM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

The wait is over! Megan Fox's New Girl character will be introduced Tuesday night. In an exclusive sneak peek at the actress's debut, Nick (Jake Johnson) offers Fox, who stars as pharmaceutical rep Reagan, a "lovely room for rent" at his and pal Winston's (Lamorne Morris) place since Reagan's current living situation is less than ideal."Reagan is a pharmaceutical rep so she travels a lot and her company is putting her up at a really terrible hotel," Fox - who has been filling in for a portion of the fifth season during Zooey Deschanel's maternity leave - explains. »

Megan Fox Makes Her New Girl Debut as Cece's Ex—And Schmidt Is Totally Jealous!

9 February 2016 11:00 AM, PST | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Yes, we're definitely missing Jess on New Girl now that we've gotten to the stretch of episodes where Zooey Deschanel was officially out on maternity leave, but there's good news: This week marks the first of Megan Fox's five episodes as temporary roommate in the loft. And guess what? You're going to love her. A lot. Fox plays Reagan, a pharmaceutical rep whom Nick (Jake Johnson) and Winston (Lamorne Morris) convince to move in to Jess' room while she's sequestered on jury duty—and she's nothing like the adorkable teacher at all. She's ultra-confident, sarcastic, and has no tolerance for B.S. And she used to hook up with Cece (Hannah Simone). Ah, MTV Spring Break 2003, those »

Watch: Megan Fox Makes Her ‘New Girl’ Debut

8 February 2016 3:06 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Megan Fox is paying a visit to “New Girl” for a five-episode guest arc beginning on Feb. 9, and Variety has an exclusive sneak peek at her debut.

Fox is playing Reagan, a no-nonsense pharmaceutical sales rep who sublets Jess’ (Zooey Deschanel) room while our titular heroine is sequestered on jury duty (or, in reality, while Deschanel is out on maternity leave). She makes her first appearance in an episode aptly titled “Reagan.”

It remains to be seen just what kind of roommate Reagan is, but judging by our sneak peek, Jess certainly might have some qualms about her suitability as a subletter — mostly because she hates pretty much everything Jess owns. Nick (Jake Johnson) seems more than happy to accommodate their new guest, which makes sense, given that he’s the self-proclaimed “rock of the group.” Winston (Lamorne Morris), on the other hand, may have some reservations, since he’s the “loft worrier. »

Megan Fox Arrives in 'New Girl' Season 5 Trailer

4 February 2016 9:26 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Back in September, Fox announced that their hit sitcom New Girl will be getting a new roommate, with Megan Fox signing on for a multi-episode guest starring arc in the show. We got our first brief glimpse at the actress in a trailer that surfaced in December, but Entertainment Weekly has debuted a new trailer and photos from next week's episode, Reagan, airing Tuesday, February 9, with even more footage of the guest star. This trailer reveals that the actress' character, Reagan, has a history with Cece (Hannah Simone), who both "hooked up" at the MTV Beach House.

The casting move was made after Zooey Deschanel had a baby in real life, causing her to be absent from the show, leading to Megan Fox being cast. Her character Reagan will debut in next week's episode, and is described as a straight-shooting pharmaceutical sales rep, who comes to town on business and rents out Jess' room, »

What Happens When Kroll, Pally, Middleditch, and Gelman Rent a House and Shoot the Saddest Bachelor-Party Movie Ever

2 February 2016 1:45 PM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

It's a premise you wouldn't normally expect for a mostly improvised comedy: Joshy (Silicon Valley's Thomas Middleditch) comes home from the gym, on his birthday, no less, to find that his fiancée (Alison Brie) has hanged herself. Cut to four months later: The deposit for the house in Ojai, California, Josh and his friends had rented for his bachelor party turns out to be non-refundable. So ... it's party time! The crew is made up of Ari (Adam Pally), Adam (Alex Ross Perry), Eric (Nick Kroll), Greg (Brett Gelman), and, as the weekend goes on, Jodi (Jenny Slate) and Isadora (Lauren Weedman). By the end of the film, all of L.A.'s comedy scene will have shown up, including director Jeff Baena's girlfriend, Aubrey Plaza (who he was last at Sundance with her for his first feature, the zombie rom-com Life After Beth), New Girl's Jake Johnson, »

While Johnson is a seasoned veteran on “New Girl,” this episode marks his first time directing.

Above, Variety has an exclusive sneak peek from the episode, in which Nick and Schmidt (Max Greenfield) have a vaguely horrifying discussion about Nick’s potential future.

“Let’s face the facts, my love life is a disaster. Schmidt, this might be my only chance of having a kid,” Nick says in the clip. “If I can’t have a kid with a woman, then maybe I’ll have one with my cousin.”

On tonight’s episode of New Girl (Fox, 8/7c), Jake Johnson masters the art of being in two places at once.

In addition to starring in a Nick-heavy episode — in which members of Nick’s family (played by comedian Bill Burr and Playing House‘s Lennon Parham) pay him a visit for a very specific reason — Johnson also takes the reins behind the camera in his directorial debut.

'Jurassic World 2' Has a Very Different Claire Says Bryce Dallas Howard

27 January 2016 2:05 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Last summer, Jurassic World broke the opening weekend box office record with a whopping $208.8 million, en route to $652 million domestic and $1.6 billion worldwide. Despite the film's massive success, there were still a few issues fans had with the story, and one of its main characters, Bryce Dallas Howard's Claire Dearing, particularly her inclination to run in heels. We know that the actress will be back for Jurassic World 2, alongside Chris Pratt's Owen Grady, but during an interview with E! Online, the actress revealed that Claire has changed quite a bit.

"[The heels] were fine. That was part of Jurassic World. They served their purpose. Actually, to answer that question seriously, Claire is a different person now. You now, the person she is at the end of the movie is not the person she was in the beginning. Her armor of sorts was that white, pristine outfit with heels in a very corporate environment and stuff, »
