Ready for three pieces of New Girl season two casting news?

First and foremost: Zooey Deschanel's new love interest on the show is going to be played by David Walton. The actor most recently starred in NBC's comedy Bent. Now he's landed a recurring role in season two of "New Girl" when Jess falls for a "classic bad boy type." His character mistakes Jess for someone else, but she decides to go along with it anyway. Expect him to show up in New Girl's premiere on Sept. 25.
