If you watch New Girl online you know that the show’s writers cooked up some far-fetched nonsense in order to replace Zooey Deschanel with Megan Fox while Zooey was on maternity leave.

Sadly, it looks like the effort left them too exhausted to come up with any funny jokes or compelling storylines, but don’t worry – it seems there is something exciting happening on the show’s set:

According to Star magazine, the newly-single Megan Fox has hit it off with former New Girl cast member Damon Wayans, Jr., who recently shot guest a spot on Brooklyn 99 on the same lot.

“They had an immediate connection,” a source tells the tabloid.

“He started bringing her breakfast in the morning, and they would hang out in her trailer. I think they really bonded over being single parents. It’s only a matter of time before they started hooking up…that is, if they haven’t already.”

Fox, of course, got divorced from Brian Austin Green last year and has been proudly single ever since.

Interestingly, Fox and Green met on the set of a sitcom back in 2004.

Fox also reportedly hooked up with Shia LaBeouf on the set of Transformers in 2007, so she’s clearly not above mixing business with pleasure. 

So it looks like while the producers of New Girl may be letting fans down, they certainly did a solid for Damon by giving Megan a spot on the show.
