EWonline reports that Brenda Song will have a recurring role on the FOX comedy NEW GIRL. The actress is set to portray 'Daisy', described as "an intense and hugely competitive young woman who dislikes "quitters" and becomes interested in Winston (Lamorne Morris) after seeing him strike out with Holly (fellow newcomer on the show Brooklyn Decker) at the bar."
Song is best known for her role as 'London' on Disney's The Suite Life with Zack and Cody and its spinoff The Suite Life on Deck.' She was recently seen on ABC's Scandal and appeared in the Oscar nominated film 'The Social Network.'
Taking a modern look at friendship and romance, breakout comedy NEW GIRL returned for its sophomore season with all-new exploits of a smart, spirited and single young woman, her three male roommates and her beautiful best friend.
This season, after JESS (Zooey Deschanel) gets laid off from her teaching job, she re-evaluates her life and career and immediately makes some dubious choices along the way – working alongside a jaded cocktail waitress (guest star Parker Posey), jumping into a sex-only relationship with a handsome lothario (recurring guest star David Walton) and attempting to bond with her younger neighbors by using 80's humor. Also this season, NICK (Jake Johnson) is dumbfounded when he gets a visit from his future self, WINSTON (Lamorne Morris) must answer to his disapproving mother and basketball star sister, SCHMIDT (MAX GREENFIELD) panics at the thought of getting old and then becomes jealous when CECE (HANNAH SIMONE) starts dating the anti-Schmidt.
The hit ensemble comedy struck a chord with viewers last season when, after a bad break-up, Jess moved into a downtown Los Angeles loft occupied by three single guys. The trio helped Jess move on with her life, as she jumped back into the dating pool, which included a courtship with a fellow teacher, a Valentine's Day one-night-stand and a May-December romance with the father of one of her students. Conversely, the upbeat and unique feminine touch that Jess brought into The Loft had just as much impact on her new male roommates and changed their lives in ways they never imagined.
