*Who knew Prince was a fan of Fox’s “New Girl.”

The purple one is set to make his first-ever appearance in a television sitcom, and has chosen the post-Super Borl episode of “New Girl” for this momentous occasion.

According to E! News, Prince will play himself and have some sort of involvement with Jess (Zooey Deschanel) and Nick (Jake Johnson).

Prince’s acting resume had previously included feature films only: “Purple Rain,” “Under the Cherry Moon” and “Graffiti Bridge.”

Fox announced in October that “New Girl” and the Golden Globe-nominated “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” will follow the Super Bowl on Feb. 2, 2014.
