“New Girl” has had some amazing guest stars in its first season — from Justin Long to “Party Down” alum Lizzy Caplan to “True Blood” star Ryan Kwanten — and there are still some big names yet to come, including Dermot Mulroney and Jeanne Tripplehorn.
But who would the cast love to see come play their new love interests? Yes, we all want to see the shameful Cece (Hannah Simone) and Schmidt (Max Greenfield) hookups continue, and we strongly believe that Nick (Jake Johnson) and Jess (Zooey Deschanel) are meant to be together, but we also want this show to be on the air for a long time. So to do that and still keep things fresh, they all need some love from sexy guest stars!
From Oprah Winfrey and Johnny Depp to Kristen Bell (“We love the idea of a ‘Veronica Mars’ reunion!”), here’s who the “New Girl” stars would love to romance onscreen next.
Zooey Deschanel, Jess:
“Johnny Depp! Or Ewan McGregor. I mean … or both.”
Max Greenfield, Schmidt:
“I’m friends with Kristen Bell and it’d be fun to have like a ‘Veronica Mars’ thing, to have her come on. I love Christina Hendricks. Oh, or how about Lena Dunham? I love my Lena Dunham! Watch ‘Girls’ in April! Oh my god, my [Gwyneth] Paltrow, too â¦ go to GOOP! [Laughs.] There’s too many, I don’t know.”
Jake Johnson, Nick:
“I’m drawing an absolute blank. I got nothing. Gimme some hints! Who do you think would be a great love interest? Heidi Klum? Yes, Heidi Klum is the answer.”
Lamorne Morris, Winston:
“Oh, Meagan Good. Meagan Good! I love her. She’s a little busy now, but not busy enough â¦ come over here to ‘New Girl,’ man. The weather’s fine over here. Hmm â¦ or Oprah. If I could get Oprah on the show as my love interest â¦ [Laughs.] Winston starts to date a younger woman!”
