Justin Long is 'New Girl's' new love interest

Though many "New Girl" fans might like to see Jess get together with her roommate, Nick, that probably isn't happening anytime soon.

Instead, show creator Liz Meriwether is pairing up Zooey Deschanel's character with a fellow music teacher, Justin Long, an actor who almost seems born to play Jess's boyfriend.

"He’s a music teacher at her school, and whatever the male form of 'adorkable' is," as Meriwether described him to reporters on Monday.

While you were working...

Today's news you might've missed:

  • Production on Maria Bello's "Prime Suspect" is shutting down this month. They'll finish their 13th episode and then Bello will hang up her snazzy headgear for the season. NBC says they're still "considering options" for the series, but it's not looking good. [Deadline Hollywood]
  • Say what you will about Paris Hilton, but you can't call her heartless when it comes to our four-legged friends. She tweeted of her recent stop in Bali, "Saw a starving stray dog on the beach of the restaurant. Made me so sad. So we ordered him a filet mignon, he loved it." [Paris Hilton's Twitter]
  • Everyone, it's OK. Brad Pitt's 50th birthday isn't a hard-and-fast benchmark of when he and Angelina Jolie will depart Hollywood and go live on their own personal planet and have more babies. He was just giving us a rough estimate. [Us Weekly]
  • Drake, to the L.A. Times: "Yeah, I wear a lot of sweaters. I love sweaters. Fair enough. I’ll be the guy that wears great sweaters." If you want our opinion, we support this rapper/singer/actor's choice in knitwear. He always look so cuddly!  [L.A. Times]
  • This sure looks like J. Bieber flipping paps the bird. And who's the blonde with him? [The Superficial]

NBC puts 'Community' on hiatus

That sound you heard yesterday afternoon was countless "Community" fans furiously tweeting their outrage after NBC released its 2012 midseason schedule with the critically acclaimed comedy conspicuously absent. In its place, "30 Rock" will return on January 12.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, sources with the network said it "will return at a later date," along with new series "Prime Suspect," which is being shelved in favor of "The Firm," starting on January 12.

Some fans on Twitter immediately assumed the worst, fearing the show was canceled or at least on the verge of cancellation. Hashtags referencing lines from the show, like "#sixseasonsandamovie", "#savegreendale" and "#savecommunity" were also popular.
