Justin Long Is the Male Jess on Thanksgiving Episode of 'New Girl' (VIDEO)

Justin Long, 'New Girl' - 'Thanksgiving'It was a Thanksgiving celebration on 'New Girl' (Tue., 9PM ET on FOX), which means all the traditions like turkeys in the dryer and dead old ladies on the toilet. Wait, that doesn't seem right.

But it was funny, as the gang found themselves relocating to a neighbor's apartment when their dryer turkey experiment led to a fire in their apartment. Never mind that the lady of the house was dead, it gave us time to get to know Jess' bizarre male counterpart Paul, played by Justin Long.

So was it weird seeing someone just as goofy as Jess driving the guys crazy, or do we like the idea of her finding someone like herself she can enjoy? Of course, if they're too much alike, doesn't that mean he'll soon be driving her crazy? Future episodes perhaps ...

Long was perfect in the role of Zooey Deschanel as a boy, and the two were cloyingly adorable together. We were possibly more intrigued by Schmidt, who showed a bit of a bad boy side (Cece like) and a lot of an OCD side (Cece likes to torment) this week. There are layers to this d-bag!

Take a deeper look at Deschanel and the show with Stephanie Earp's examination of why 'New Girl' works here.

I don't mean to be mean, I just can't tell if Jess is a boyish girl, or a girly boy. Plus, "Jess" is an androgynous name, so that doesn't help.
