Dermot Mulroney meets a New Girl

Zooey Deschanel is getting a new love interest on Fox’s New Girl and it’s none other than Dermot Mulroney.

Is anyone tired of Zooey Deschanel’s quirky New Girl character yet?

Apparently not — Jess is getting a new man.

Dermot Mulroney as Zooey Deschanel‘s new guy on New Girl is an odd match to think about in our heads, but we’ll just have to get used to it — it’s happening.

TVLine is confirming that Dermot Mulroney will be headed to New Girl in an attempt to woo Deschanel’s single character, Jess.

Here’s the scoop according to the site: Dermot Mulroney will play “a handsome, intelligent and wealthy gentleman who also happens to be the father of one of Jess’ students.”

An older man on the prowl? We’re warming to the idea, but it may take more convincing.

Like most relationships, they aren’t hot for each other at first, but their chemistry becomes unavoidable.

Many of you out there will remember Dermot Mulroney from his awesomely, fantastic role in My Best Friend’s Wedding.

This is still kind of weird. Her character is so, how shall we put this, not Mulroney-esque. Hey, it’s TV, we’ll have to believe in the unbelievable.

Either way, Dermot Mulroney’s character will set his sights on the New Girl beginning in March or April, according to the report.

We want to hear from you. Head over to our comments section and sound off about Dermot Mulroney’s new role on New Girl.

We know you have an opinion, so why not use it?
