Linda Cardellini Joins <i>New Girl</i> as Jess&#8217; Sister

After a season-long spot on Mad Men, Lindsay Wei—actress Linda Cardellini is set to join the cast of New Girl. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Cardellini has been cast as Jess’ (Zooey Deschanel) “wild” sister. With the term “wild” being a relative one, especially for the bespectacled Jess, we’ll see what exactly that means for the character later next year.

For now, Cardellini’s episode count isn’t confirmed. The show is set to return from hiatus on Jan. 7, and Cardellini’s episodes are expected to air in February. Jess’ parents, played by Jamie Lee Curtis and Rob Reiner, are set to make appearances in the season as well.
