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.
