Taylor Swift may dominate awards shows for her music, but one thing that’s as-of-yet unproven ― can she act?
She had a small, awkward role in Valentine’s Day that didn’t quite come off, and she was a voice in The Lorax, so she’s certainly not the most experienced comedienne out there. But New Girl producers were willing to take a chance on the Red songbird for their season finale, giving her a key role in a wedding scene.
How’d it go? Well, someone from the cast called Taylor “frustrating”...

If your ears perked up at the drama, sorry! Taylor’s performance was “frustrating” in a good way. Jake Johnson told Entertainment Weekly: “She came in and is really nice. It’s not an easy scene. There were probably 70 extras there — though I’m sure she performs to so much bigger [crowds] than that on a regular basis. She had, like, a little monologue and delivered it perfectly. Liz gave her alternative jokes and lines, she delivered them all perfectly. It was frustrating!”
So she’s showing up some of the biggest stars in TV comedy? Not too bad, Swifty.
New Girl creator Liz Meriwether also had kind words for the sitcom newbie: “She kind of came and nailed it. We love bringing in guest stars, but we really try to make it feel like they’re part of the show and it’s not just stunt casting.”

In the finale, Taylor cameos as a guest at the wedding of Cece and Shivrang. The casting came as a result of a mutual lovefest, since Taylor is a big fan of New Girl and Liz Meriwether is a huge fan of Taylor.
