Zooey Deschanel welcomes Prince onto the New Girl set, but the legendary singer has some very specific cameo requests...
The most amazing New Girl rumour has been confirmed. Prince is set to make an incredible cameo on Zooey Deschanel's hilarious US show.
More details have emerged of the Purple Rain singer's upcoming appearance on the Fox comedy, as he's set to star in the Super Bowl episode, Party Time.
'He contacted us last season because he's a huge fan,' executive producer Brett Baer told E! News. 'He knows everything about the show. He contacted Zooey [Deschanel] and Hannah [Simone] directly and asked to do the show.
'We couldn't work it out last year. But when the Super Bowl thing was floated, it was perfect timing.'
A self-confessed New Girl obsessive, it seems, Prince is said to have made some very specific requests ahead of his cameo. 'He said, 'I want to be involved in the show in a real way and I want to help Nick and Jess with their relationship',' executive producer Dave Finkel adds.
'He's right in the middle of trying to help [Nick and Jess] work through some stuff and it's amazing,' Baer reveals. 'His thing was all about getting to Jess and trying to bring out this inner part of her that hadn't been brought to the forefront.
'The word hip tips was sort of a thing. He put it, 'I think I can give her some hip tips'.'
We can't WAIT to see Prince make his cameo on New Girl. Zooey Deschanel, you lucky, lucky thing.
