Linda Cardellini signs up for recurring role on New Girl

Following her season-long arc on Mad Men, Linda Cardellini is joining the cast of New Girl for several episodes next season. She'll be playing a love interest for Winston, who gets a major story arc in which... ha, just kidding, Winston's never getting any storylines.

No, Cardellini will play Jess' wild, less-adorkable sister, Abby, for an unspecified number of episodes starting in February. Having shown off her dramatic chops on Mad Men and ER, this will be Cardellini's first TV comedy work since her career-making role on Freaks and Geeks.

The new year will be a veritable family reunion for New Girl, as besides Cardellini's string of episodes, Jamie Lee Curtis and Rob Reiner are also set to reprise their roles as Jess' parents some time in January.
