Sources tell E! News that the legendary entertainer, who is a fan of the show, will play himself.  The upcoming episode will be centered around the singer's notorious house parties, where he is rumored to come between the show's favorite couple: Jess, played by Zooey Deschanel, and Nick, portrayed by Jake Johnson.

Further evidence that Prince will make a cameo comes from actress Hannah Simone, who plays CeCe.  On Wednesday, she tweeted, "Big Deal Alert! Exciting news coming tomorrow....." which Prince, in turn, retweeted.

A rep from Fox declined to comment when contacted by ABC News Radio.  The appearance would mark Prince's first-ever guest spot on a TV comedy.
