'True Blood' Star Ryan Kwanten to Hook Up with Zooey Deschanel on 'New Girl'

'True Blood' Star Ryan Kwanten to Hook Up with Zooey Deschanel on 'New Girl' Another day, another love interest for one of the leads of "New Girl" cast! We know that "Party Down" alum Lizzy Caplan is set to appear on the show soon as a possible love interest for Jake Johnson's Nick, and we've already seen a bit of Justin Long as a new rather dorky flame for Zooey Deschanel's Jess.

But news out of the "New Girl" casting camp says that Jess is going to have another hookup in February, and it's none other than "True Blood" star Ryan Kwanten!

That's right, Jason Stackhouse himself will be showing up on "New Girl" (and I'm sure he'll bring his abs with him) in a Valentine's Day-themed episode that has Jess hitting the bar to find a hook-up. Apparently she runs into Ryan, so that's a pretty good deal for her.

This pretty much means curtains for Long's character, but we knew that from the get-go as Long was only signed on to do an arc of just a few episodes. So it looks like Jess will be going from adorkable hipster to full-on hunk.

This will be a good opportunity for Kwanten, who has shown some of his comedic ability on "True Blood" and more recently in the movie "Griff the Invisible," to show off what he can really do with a funny script in hand.
