Taylor Swift is ready for New Girl! The country singer is set to show off her acting chops on the season finale of FOX’s hit show on May 14, and Entertainment Weekly has a sneak peek. Just in case you’re not up to speed on New Girl, here’s a quick break down of what will be happening in the finale: Jess (Zooey Deschanel) and the rest of the gang (Nick, Schmidt, and Winston) are attending the wedding of Jess’ BFF CeCe, which is basically an arranged marriage.
At the wedding, Jess will meet a fellow attendee named Elaine, played by the “22” singer, and that’s about all we know. However, it looks like Taylor is a huge fan of the show, as New Girl creator Liz Meriwether told EW that Taylor was quoting lines from previous episodes when she came to set.
Jake Johnson — who plays Nick — sang Taylor’s praises, telling the mag she was “very good,” adding, “She came in and is really nice. It’s not an easy scene. There were probably 70 extras there — though I’m sure she performs to so much bigger [crowds] than that on a regular basis. She had, like, a little monologue and delivered it perfectly. Liz gave her alternative jokes and lines, she delivered them all perfectly. It was frustrating!”
