“Veep” star Reid Scott has signed on for a guest-starring role in the fourth-season premiere of Fox’s NEW GIRL. Scott is set to play Ted, a charming wedding guest who becomes the object of a romantic competition between Jess (series star Zooey Deschanel) and a beautiful scientist (fellow guest star Jessica Biel).
Scott is on a roll at the moment, after his breakout role in HBO’s comedy “Veep.” On the show, Scott plays scheming career man Dan Egan, deputy communications director to the Julia Louise-Dreyfus’ Vice President. He also had a one-season role on another dark comedy, “The Big C,” in which he played main character Cathy’s (Laura Linney) oncologist. He has a number of comedy films in the works, including “The Intern,” starring Robert De Niro and Anne Hathaway, which is slated for release in 2015.
Scott is repped by Gersh and Impression Entertainment.
