Since Schmidt (Max Greenfield) broke up with CeCe (Hannah Simone), it may seem like we’re not going to get a whole lot of crazy Schmidt sex this season, but Entertainment Weekly tells us this is not the case.

Schmidt will be getting a “high-powered sex freak” of a new boss at the office who will first appear in episode 7 of season 2 and recur for three episodes.

EW has learned that Carla Gugino (Political Animals, Entourage) has signed on to the Fox comedy to play Emma, Schmidt’s sweet-seeming new superior who’s actually a high-powered sex freak. The two will engage in a Fifty Shades of Grey-esque relationship when Schmidt is forced to sign a contract that binds him to Emma.

Show creator Liz Meriwether talked a little about it too, in her interview with TV Guide.

“It’s pretty crazy. We like to push it to the edge. Hopefully we’ll be pushing it all the way to the edge. We’re also playing with it a little bit that she’s a little bit aware. She’s maybe not necessarily as skilled as he thinks she is at first with the whole S&M thing. Anytime we can get Schmidt tied up with a weird costume on, everybody’s down for it.”

You mean like this?

The episode will air sometime in November, are you looking forward to seeing Carla Gugino as Schmidt’s new lady boss?
