Jessica Biel Got An Acting Gig On New Girl

Do I think New Girl is doing some stunt casting this season? Yep. Whenever you bring in Damon Wayans Jr to be a regular that is the first step and then when you bring in Jessica Biel for an episode you are really reaching. The good news is that it is not Lindsay Lohan. That is stunt casting and just showing the world you don't care about your show. If you think I am going to rip Jessica Biel as an actress here, I am not. Her problem has always been that she wants to be the lead in a movie which she is not good enough to do. That being said she is really good on television and can be good when she does not have a huge role in a movie. It is still stunt casting, but unlike Lindsay Lohan I think Jessica will be pretty good. When you are starring in a movie, even though you ca do repeated takes, at some point it becomes really expensive and really time consuming and when you are the lead that is just not sustainable over the long term so the director gives up and Jessica is Jessica. She can be good in a limited role though and I think moving to television is a really good idea for her career and playing"the hottest scientist in the world" on a Fox show is not a bad way to start.

Damon was in the pilot but left when his other series got picked up. Happy Endings was way better.

You did a good job of semi-ripping her for someone not there to rip her Enty.
She still has horse face but her body is hot anyway.
(looking at the front door to see if Mr. X walks in)

White bread….that's what she is, boring

Henriette said...

I thought TV was beneath her? Doesn't she only get out of bed to do films now?

Steampunk Jazz said...

Damon was the original Coach character, he left to work an ensemble comedy that got canceled.
Biel? The show has gotten dull. A fresh hottie stirring things up might help.

Seven of Eleven said...

Thanks, @Ray. Damon was in the first two or three episodes, IIRC, too (Coach!).

"The hottest scientist in the world"? Oh, dear (possibly NSFW).

Ray Nicolet said...

I like Winston better than Coach but I loved him as Brad on Happy Endings

Steampunk Jazz said...

Right there with you on that score, Ray. His character has become the real heart of the show. I find Damon...jarring.

"Do U KNOW WHO SHE IS?"

Ray Nicolet said...

Winston is hilarious especially when he got Ferguson the cat.

Seven of Eleven said...

Awww, Ferguson!

Ari said...

whatever

Jessi said...

Sorry, but what an annoying post Enty. As others have said... pretty sure Coach wasn't "stunt casting" seeing he was originally cast on the show and had another show Happy Endings. He chose to drop out of New Girl bc of Happy Endings. Then Happy Endings got canceled, so they hired him back, bc obviously they loved him to hire him the first time.
Why are you such a hater of New Girl? Did you and the Zooey have a falling out?

Jessi said...

I love Winston!!

derek harvey said...

I HAAAATE the New Girl

Ray Nicolet said...

Loving all the Winston love! Seven, find some gifs!

bunny honey said...

Damon is just like his father, a hell of a comedian. As for Biel, use to like her but now....

Seven of Eleven said...

@Ray - Winston's advice to Mr X

Jessi said...

Oh that almost made me spit out my coffee Seven! Awesome!

Seven of Eleven said...

Dinner plans

After dinner plans

Going home with Idina Menzel

And who can resist Prank Sinatra?!

Seven of Eleven said...

A gif(t) for you, @Jessi!

Jessica should try out and take on a cop or lawyer role. I think she'd perform well.

rajahcat said...

I think her venue is tv

Orvilla Bedinbacher said...

Winston is the best!!! I do love me some Schmidt as well. Scenes with both of them are 'the Ferguson's meow'. They are the only reasons I tune into that show.

Jessi said...

Aw shucks Seven, Thanks!

Sunny said...

Take enty's headline, cross out "an acting gig", and we got ourselves a story. Hey-O!

Ray Nicolet said...

Let's put some wood shavings...by his car!

Winston either goes too tame with pranks or way too wild.

Erin B said...

@Ray Nicolet - I love Winston's pranks. The episode when he took Schmidt to buy crack because Schmidt wanted to bond & do something he wanted to do was hilarious. I remember reading an EW article after the first season where they were complaining about Winston's character & that they don't do anything with him. They were wrong! He's my favorite character! Love him with Ferguson.

Count Jerkula said...

I hope we get a couple nice gifs of her buttocks out of it. Will be the only way I'll ever see the show.

Michael said...

Jessica is nice eye candy but she is not a movie star. She is boring with little charisma. Looks pretty good though

Cornbread said...

Love New Girl, but only for Winston and Schmidt. Somehow, the writers manage to make their storylines seem totally plausible (as someone mentioned earlier, Schmidt buying crack) while the Nick-Jessica storylines feel too far-fetched.

My husband and I have a Douche Jar at home. I think that cold close was one of my faves on the show.

The Real Dragon said...

Whatever coach is hilarious. About time we dont have one token black guy

TV Junkie said...

ITA, Ray!

Malibu Borebee said...

I've never seen "New Girl" and probably never will but Damon Wayans can improve anything.

Jessica Biel has all the charm of a plank of particle board and about the same amount of talent.

LogDog said...

Yea, New Girl gets a really bad rap from a lot of people, but a lot of critics, like Alan Sepinwall, think the show's pretty great

Renoblondee said...

Love and adore Winston and Schmidt! Biel? Ugh
