Olivia Munn Cast In 'New Girl' And More Casting News

Nick and Jess may end up getting together on this season of "New Girl," but it looks like they'll have a major bump along the way.

According to Deadline, "Newsroom" actress Olivia Munn has landed a multi-episode arc on "New Girl" as Angie, Nick's (Jake Johnson) girlfriend. Munn's character is described as "sexy, earthy, charming" and able to "hold her own with the group." Sounds like some serious competition for Jess.

In addition to "The Newsroom," Munn's other TV appearances include "Perfect Couples" and "Greek."
