For everyone preemptively clamoring for an Emmy for Parker Posey's luminous two-episode arc on Louie, here's an early victory: She's been cast in New Girl's season-two premiere, taking a role Leslie Mann had to opt out of. Posey will play "a 'shot girl' at a party to celebrate the removal of Schmidt’s penis cast." An important day for Schmidt, for sure; the more the merrier.
