In just a couple of New Girl episodes, Dermot Mulroney will make his guest appearance as Jess’ (Zooey Deschanel) handsome new boyfriend, Russell – complete with an ex-wife and a kid. And guess what? We’ll actually get to see this so-called ex-wife. Her character, to be portrayed by Big Love‘s Jeanne Tripplehorn, apparently has it in for Jess.
“…Tripplehorn has been cast to play Ouli, Russell’s ex-wife, who is going to make her ex’s new girl feel terrible any way she can.”
Look out for Jeanne Tripplehorn as Ouli in two episodes set to air sometime after Dermot Mulroney’s guest episode. Which means Jess will have plenty of time to get acquainted with the whole ex-wife situation, right? Hit the comments and discuss what New Girl mayhem you think will ensue.
