‘New Girl’ scoop: Disney Channel star cast in love interest role

'New Girl' scoop Disney Channel star cast in love interest role -- EXCLUSIVE

A Disney Channel favorite is arriving at Fox’s New Girl.

Brenda Song, who starred on The Suite Life with Zack and Cody and its own spinoff The Suite Life on Deck, has been cast in a recurring role this year on the comedy hit.

The actress will play Daisy, a rigorous and hugely competitive young woman who dislikes “quitters” and becomes interested in Winston (Lamorne Morris) after seeing him strike out with Holly (fellow newcomer on the show Brooklyn Decker) at the bar.

Song lately had an arc on ABC’s Scandal and had a large screen turn in The Social networking.

In other New Girl casting news, the series recently signed Nate Corddry (The Daily Show) for a guest-star role, playing a man who creeps out Jess (Zooey Deschanel) later this year.
