Parker Posey Will Replace Leslie Mann on FOX’s ‘New Girl’

Parker Posey joins New Girl

New Girl Exclusive: Parker Posey Set to Replace Leslie Mann as Schmidt’s Penis Party Girl


According to TVLine’s Michael Ausiello,  Parker Posey will be guest-starring in the season 2 premiere of New Girl. Here’s an excerpt from the article, which gives some details on Posey’s role:


The indie goddess, who garnered raves for her recent arc as Louis C.K.’s unhinged love interest on FX’s Louie, will play a “shot girl” at a party to celebrate the removal of Schmidt’s penis cast.


Leslie Mann was originally cast in the role, but the Knocked Up actress had to back out due to a scheduling conflict.


My thoughts: I have to admit that I’m definitely disappointed by this news, because I was really excited when they first announced that Leslie Mann had been cast in the role. The only thing that I’ve seen Leslie Mann in at the moment is the episode of Modern Family that she guest-starred in last season, and I loved her in that episode. Don’t me wrong, I don’t dislike Parker Posey as an actress, I liked her in all of the things that I’ve seen her in. It’s just that Parker Posey isn’t necessarily an actress that I get really excited about when I find out that she’s going to be guest-starring on a TV show that I like. That being said, while I’m disappointed that Leslie Mann won’t be playing the role after all, I’m still really looking forward to the season 2 premiere, because the premise of the episode sounds really funny and New Girl is my newest obsession.
