ACTRESS Megan Fox is joining the cast of hit comedy New Girl as maternity cover for Zooey Deschanel.
Fox will join the sitcom for its fifth season.
Viewers will see her on screen from the sixth episode, which is due to air next January.
The story will see Fox play a pharmaceutical sales rep who rents out Jess’ room.
New Girl executive producer Liz Meriwether said: "It's insane to me that such a gorgeous person can be so funny, but I guess we just all have to accept it.
"I've been a fan of her comedic skills since This Is 40, and I'm so excited to have her on the show. We had Megan in mind when we wrote this part – she's the perfect person to come in and shake these guys up."
