Rachael Harris is set to party with Zooey Deschanel: The actress/comedienne (The Daily Show, The Hangover) will guest-star on the Fox comedy New Girl. She’ll play Tanya, a quirky vice principal at the school where Jess (Deschanel) teaches; she loans Jess a bus for Schmidt’s birthday bash on the condition that she can cut loose with them too. (There may be a stripper pole involved.)

The episode will air later this season, and Harris – who stars in the upcoming indie comedy Natural Selection – may recur on the show.
