You may remember her as Janis Ian from the hit teen dramedy Mean Girls. Or you may recognize her more recently from her guest spot on True Blood and as Casey Klein from the Starz network series, Party Down. Now, you can watch Lizzy Caplan on FOX's breakout comedy New Girl. Unfortunately, she won't be coming on as our favorite guest star for two very important reasons:
1 – Justin Long is already scheduled to guest star in a reoccurring role on the series as Jess' music teacher/love interest. His three-episode arc will air beginning episode 6. I can't imagine anyone better to compliment Zooey Deschanel's off-beat humor. Who doesn't love Justin Long?
2 – Caplan will be playing Julia Baker, Nick's love interest, in a three episode guest spot. Needless to say, we're not happy about this because we believe Jess should ultimately end up with Nick.
According to THR, "Julia is described as a highly educated young woman with a master’s degree in art history and a highly cultured manner. She meets Nick -- who took the first steps toward getting over his ex, Caroline, in Tuesday’s episode – at an art gallery opening.
Nick is immediately taken with her seeming perfection and worries that the seemingly perfect woman will be disgusted by his roommates when she joins the guys in celebrating Schmidt’s (Max Greenfield) 29th birthday. However, Nick’s intimidations are cooled when Julia admits she has anger management issues."
