Diggs, best known for his role as Dr. Sam Bennett on "Private Practice," will appear in the seventh episode of the third season, which premiered Tuesday. His character, Artie is a "smooth, confident ladies' man" with his eye on Jess.
Diggs' episode, which will air in November, will also mark the return of Damon Wayans Jr., who appeared as Coach in the pilot but left "New Girl" for a role in the recently cancelled "Happy Endings."
