“New Girl” Just Got Sexier Thanks to Linda Cardellini

The former Freaks and Geeks star joins TV’s hippest sitcom.

Boy, it seems like everyone is joining the cast of New Girlthese days. First, Damon WayansJr. of the cancelled-way-too-soonHappy 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 ZooeyDeschanel’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.
