Actress Jennifer Coolidge (American Reunion) has landed a recurring role on the CBS sitcom 2 Broke Girls. We reported earlier this month the show was given a full-season order by the network.

Jennifer Coolidge will play Sophie, a hard-working woman who becomes the new neighbor to Max (Kat Dennings) and Caroline (Kat Dennings). It is said the role was created specifically for her.

It isn't known how many episodes Jennifer Coolidge will appear in this season, or when she will make her debut on the show. The actress will next be seen reprising her "MILF" role from American Pie in American Reunion, which hits theaters on April 6, 2012.

2 Broke Girls, which was created by Michael Patrick King and Whitney Cummings, airs Monday nights at 9:30 PM ET on CBS.
