Another day, another new love interest for Zooey Deschanel’s character Jess on New Girl.

The adorkable star has already acted opposite Justin Long, Dermot Mulroney, and True Blood hunk Ryan Kwanten on the set of her hit FOX comedy. Now she’s adding a few more actors to the list.

According to E! Online, Broadway star Josh Gad is set to guest star as a dorky beer delivery guy looking to win over Jess’s heart in the show’s season premiere. Josh, who is best known for his leading role in the hit musical Book of Mormon, will play a character called Bearclaw and will apparently only appear in one episode.

Given that David Walton is also set to appear on New Girl this season as a charming bad boy, we have a feeling that Bearclaw will have plenty of competition in winning over Jess’s heart!

New Girl Season 2 premieres on Tuesday, September 25 on FOX.
