Guest stars are Swift-ly flocking to Fox’s “New Girl.”
Taylor Swift will guest on the May 14 season two finale of the comedy. The country- pop singer will play Elaine, a character who is an “important guest” at Cece (played by Hannah Simone) and Shivrang’s (played by Satya Bhabha) wedding.
This isn’t the first involvement of Swift in “New Girl.” She has been name- checked several times on the program this season. Schmidt (played by Max Greenfield) texted Cece that he was going through a “Taylor Swift- like range of emotions.” Another time, Nick (played by Jake Johnson) tried to cheer up Jess (played by Zooey Deschanel), who wanted to just “listen to Taylor Swift alone.” Song “22” was also playing in the background.
Swift guest- starred in a “CSI: Crime Scene Investigation” episode a few years ago to some acclaim. She also had a role in romantic comedy “Valentine’s Day.”
Other guest stars this season have included Jamie Lee Curtis, Rob Reiner, Odette Annable, Olivia Munn, Nick Kroll, Parker Posey and Margo Martindale. Some of those stars dated Nick (I’ll leave it to the reader to figure out which, but I’ll give you Reiner).
