Prince To Guest Star On New Girl

“New Girl” is about to get crazy, thanks to the presence of a music legend.

Prince is headed to the Fox comedy as a guest star, according to E!.

The music superstar will play himself on the show, and will interfere with Nick (Jake Johnson) and Jess’ (Zooey Deschanel) relationship, E! reported.

Prince will make his appearance (his first on a TV comedy!) during the show’s post-Super Bowl episode.
