Zooey Deschanel, Prince and New Girl's Jake Johnson

Prince makes his New Girl cameo in this new FOX picture


Zooey Deschanel is one lucky lady. Following her run of the red carpet rubbing shoulders with the showbiz industry's finest at Sunday night's Golden Globes 2014, the actress has now been getting cosy with none other than… Prince!

The star of hit comedy series New Girl can be seen perching on a bench next to the musical legend and her co-star Jake Johnson (AKA, the loveable Nick) in a brand new, first-look snap unveiled by FOX today.

Wearing a cool leather jacket with his sunglasses tucked in and one perfectly-groomed 'fro, Prince rocks a pout and looks into the distance in the shot, while on/off couple and roommates Nick and Jess sit either side of him, awkwardly.

It's reported that Prince will help Nick and Jess to 'iron out the kinks' in their tricky relationship during the all-important Super Bowl episode on 2 February.

'[Jess is] goofy and out there, and he's this wise, quiet sort of oracle,' show creator Liz Meriwether told TV Guide. 'Nick's a huge Prince fan. He's immediately like: "It's an honour to give you my girlfriend".'

Prepare for LOLs.

'He’s got a very quiet, wry sense of humor but he kills,' adds show producer Dave Finkel. There’s a moment in the episode where he’s sitting in between Zooey and Jake on a bench. And it’s a silent beef and he’s just looking between them trying to figure them out. And it’s hilarious. He has crazy comic instincts.'

We. Can't. Wait.
