Actress Jessica Biel is slated to make a return to the small screen with a guest role on hit U.S. sitcom New Girl.
Biel has been tapped to play “the hottest scientist in the world” in an episode for the comedy’s upcoming fourth season, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
The actress’ character will also serve as a rival for Zooey Deschanel’s Jess Day, as the two vie over a fellow male guest at a wedding.
Biel’s appearance on New Girl marks her first return to the small screen in nearly eight years.
She starred in family drama 7th Heaven for the first seven seasons before departing in 2003, and returning for the series finale in 2006.
