TV Line has reported that Rob Reiner and Jamie Lee Curtis have been cast to play the divorced parents of Jess (Zoey Deschanel) on Fox’s New Girl in an episode that is also reportedly going to borrow from the plot of Parent Trap.
Unfortunately, since it’s the Thanksgiving episode the part of the movie where long lost twins meet at Camp Inch doesn’t seem likely to be part of the plot. Nor does Deschanel playing her long lost twin.
According to the TV Line report:
“We’ll meet Mom and Dad Day in the Thanksgiving episode, when Jess attempts to get her divorced folks to reunite, Parent Trap-style.”
