• Billy Eichner joins ‘New Girl’ for holiday episode

    Billy Eichner.jpgSassy comedian Billy Eichner will appear on Fox’s New Girl this season. The Billy on the Street host has recently shown off his acting chops on NBC’s Parks and Recreation, where he will be seen a bit during the upcoming final season as Craig. On New Girl‘s holiday episode on Dec. 9, Eichner will play Barry. The gang meets Barry, a beleaguered airline representative, while trying to leave Los Angeles for Christmas. Barry is not very pleased dealing with even more holiday travelers.

    Eichner’s star continues to soar with his comedic acting gigs, possibly in hopes that USA Network will greenlight his Amy Poehler-produced pilot Difficult People to series. In the meantime, he continues to host his FUSE Network ambush game show Billy on the Street. With all of the projects in the air, Eichner still manages to write a book and yell at Burger King.
