“New Girl” has had many hilarious guest stars over the years, including Jessica Biel as Kat in the season four premiere. Kat provides the perfect antidote to Jess’ antics in The Last Wedding, the stoic, confident genius of Jess’ fun, adorable, and approachable character. Hilarity ensues when Kat and Jess fight over the only eligible man left at a friend’s wedding, the best man (Reid Scott). Jess looks stunning, and it’s a little annoying when the show tries to make jokes implying that Kat is somehow a lot more attractive (we’d say Zooey Deschanel and Jessica Biel are both Hollywood-level beautiful), but for For the most part, the dynamics are played beautifully by both actors.
After Jess tries the “Biden” strategy of always “being there” where the best man is, Kat goads her into an “extreme Biden” where Jess follows the best man into the men’s room. In the end, the two are amicably after the best man, unable to make a choice between them, and it’s lovely to see two women on television approach a love triangle with humor, realistic expectations, and respect for the game and the players.
