"She's fantastic," Johnson told E! Online. "She's so good on the show. She's around for a little bit [and] she plays a real badass. She kind of mixes everything up a little bit."

The actor joked that he had trouble keeping his cool while filming romantic scenes with Munn, who is currently shooting a second season of Aaron Sorkin's HBO drama The Newsroom.

"It was hard to stay Nick Miller and not be nerd Jake Johnson doing make out scenes with Olivia Munn," he admitted. "But she's great."

Jamie Lee Curtis (True Lies) and Rob Reiner (This Is Spinal Tap) will appear in the next episode of New Girl as the parents of Jess (Deschanel).

The series continues on Tuesday nights on Fox and is expected to return to E4 in the UK in early 2013.
