Prince Will Guest Star on Super Bowl Sunday Edition of “New Girl”


Prince, a New Girl fan? Who knew?!

Comedy fans will have to put on a “Raspberry Beret” to keep the “Purple Rain” off their head when the pop legend guest stars on a special post-Super Bowl episode of FOX’s sophomore sitcom. Prince will play himself in a role on the Zooey Deschanel-led sitcom that will somehow cause friction in the budding relationship between Deschanel’s character, Jess, and roommate Nick (Jake Johnson).

Now get this, Prince is reportedly a fan of the show and contacted producers to see if they could write him into the show. They jumped at the opportunity, with the network suggesting his appearance take place in the episode set to air after the 2014 Super Bowl.

Prince’s episode will air on Feb. 2.
