Tuesday’s episode of “New Girl” will be the last to star Zooey Deschanel until she returns from her maternity leave in March. Still, the episode will introduce a new character into her life — a lawyer named Daniel (John Cho).

In the featurette above, Cho gives a good it of information on his character, whom Jess (Deschanel) meets while on jury duty. “It seems like there are some sparks between them and that there is a shared love of civic duty and also just me being hot,” Cho tells about his character.

Unfortunately, it doesn’t look like love will be in the cards for Jess and Daniel. An unexpected call ends with her being named temporary principal at work, meaning she now has to get out of jury duty. That doesn’t exactly sit well with Daniel.

“New Girl” airs Tuesdays at 8 p.m. ET/PT on FOX.
