The former Freaks and Geeks star joins TV's hippest sitcom.
Boy, it seems like everyone is joining the cast of New Girl these days. First, Damon Wayans Jr. of the cancelled-way-too-soon Happy Endings got onboard. Last week, we learned that Prince will be making an appearance. And now, news has broken that Linda Cardellini, whose career we've been following from Freaks and Geeks to Scooby Doo to a recent run on Mad Men, will become the newest member of the New Girl family. Word is she'll be playing "Abby," the "troublemaker" sister of Zooey Deschanel's character, Jess. To celebrate this development, take a peek at Linda Cardellini's sexy Maxim photo shoot, then give the show a season pass on your DVR. Got it? Good.
