Fans of "New Girl" are still swooning over that hot kiss Nick (Jake Johnson) and Jess (Zooey Deschanel) shared last week.


Sadly, the lip-lock will be all fans have for awhile because Nick and Jess aren't going to be together just yet. That's because actress Odette Annable ("House") is joining the sitcom as Nick's new love interest, TVLine reports.
