FOX's New Girl Cast Jamie Lee Curtis and Rob Reiner as Jess' ParentsNew Girl: Jamie Lee Curtis and Rob Reiner to play Jess’ parents




According to Entertainment Weekly’s Dan Snierson, Jamie Lee Curtis and Rob Reiner will be guest-starring in the season 2 Thanksgiving episode of New Girl as Jess’ parents. Here’s an excerpt from the article, which gives some details on Curtis’ and Reiner’s appearance on the show.:



EW has learned that actress/author Jamie Lee Curtis and actor/director/producer Rob Reiner will assume the roles of her divorced parents, Joan and Bob, who cross paths again in the loft at Thanksgiving. Jess is not happy that they are not together, and uses the holiday to try to  romantically reunite them in what’s being described as a “Parent Trap.” (What could go wrong? See: last year’s dryer turkey and corpse special.



My thoughts: I have to admit that I didn’t really start watching New Girl until this summer, and I really regret not watching the show sooner. New Girl is a very funny show with a great writing and a great cast for the most part. Although, I have to admit that Winston is my least favorite character on the show. I don’t hate him, it’s just that the character doesn’t really stand out to me nearly as much as all of the other characters stand out to me as being extremely funny.


That being said, I find Jamie Lee Curtis and Rob Reiner being cast as Jess’ parents to be extremely random casting. To be completely honest, I didn’t think that Jamie Lee Curtis was acting very much these days outside of the commercials that she’s done for Activia yogurt. I just figured she was mostly doing other things now such as write books. I’ve really liked Jamie Lee Curtis in the movies that I’ve seen her in, so I’m not upset about this casting. I just find this casting to be extremely random and unexpected, especially Rob Reiner being cast as Jess’ dad since he’s an actor that I’ve almost never thought about. I’m definitely anxious to see them on the show since the episode that they will be guest-starring in sounds very interesting and has great potential to be absolutely hilarious.
