When will we see more Schmidt/Cece action on New Girl? –Andy
Apparently not any time too soon. Hannah Simone came up empty on that scoop front when I saw her at Fox’s TCA soiree. Instead, she offered up this preview: “A great episode is coming up where Nick can’t be at the bar, so Cece has to work with the manager, played by Ben Falcone, and that is reallyfunny, because he’s a little tough on her! All while Cece is trying to do her best at a job she’s not very good at.”
Zooey Deschanel is one lucky lady. Following her run of the red carpet rubbing shoulders with the showbiz industry’s finest at Sunday night’s Golden Globes 2014, the actress has now been getting cosy with none other than… Prince!
The star of hit comedy series New Girl can be seen perching on a bench next to the musical legend and her co-star Jake Johnson (AKA, the loveable Nick) in a brand new, first-look snap unveiled by FOX today.
Wearing a cool leather jacket with his sunglasses tucked in and one perfectly-groomed ‘fro, Prince rocks a pout and looks into the distance in the shot, while on/off couple and roommates Nick and Jess sit either side of him, awkwardly.
It’s reported that Prince will help Nick and Jess to ‘iron out the kinks’ in their tricky relationship during the all-important Super Bowl episode on 2 February.
‘[Jess is] goofy and out there, and he’s this wise, quiet sort of oracle,’ show creator Liz Meriwether told TV Guide. ‘Nick’s a huge Prince fan. He’s immediately like: “It’s an honour to give you my girlfriend”.’
Prepare for LOLs.
‘He’s got a very quiet, wry sense of humor but he kills,’ adds show producer Dave Finkel. There’s a moment in the episode where he’s sitting in between Zooey and Jake on a bench. And it’s a silent beef and he’s just looking between them trying to figure them out. And it’s hilarious. He has crazy comic instincts.’
We. Can’t. Wait.
According to E! News, “the artist formerly known as Prince” will be cast on “New Girl,” because he is a “huge fan.”
The ever enigmatic 55-year-old will appear in post Superbowl episode, which came about when he personally contacted the producers.
“He knows everything about the show. He contacted Zooey [Deschanel] and Hannah [Simone] directly and asked to do [it],” executive producer Brett Baer said. “He’s a Nick and Jess shipper!”
Prince’s role in the show will be “right in the middle of trying to help [Nick and Jess] work through some stuff.” Apparently, “his thing was all about getting to Jess and trying to bring out this inner part of her that hadn’t been brought to the forefront.”
So, just to be clear, this is basically Prince living out “New Girl” fan fiction. When he is not riding around on a miniature unicorn or tweeting selfies and weird pepper salads, Prince is watching “New Girl,” and he just really wants Nick and Jess to stay together.
#3.13 – “Birthday” – Nick struggles to throw Jess the perfect birthday party, while Schmidt works overtime to help out Cece in her new job as bartender and Winston and Coach engage in a bake-off.
#3.12 – “Basketsball” – Jess does a full-court press to solidify her friendship with Coach. But Nick goes on defense when they bond over his rival basketball team. Meanwhile, Schmidt is assigned to mentor a much older new hire at work and Winston discovers a new career path.
#3.11 – “Clavado En Un Bar” – Jess has 20 minutes to decide if she should give up teaching and take a new job, prompting the gang to recall how they all landed in their current professions.
Got anything on the “careers episode” coming up on New Girl? –Kas
In the Fox com’s next outing, airing Jan. 7, Jess has only 20 minutes to decide if she wants to change careers and accept a new job, prompting the gang to flashback to how they all landed in their current professions. I leave it to you to figure out how this exclusive photo of Winston à la Rodman figures in:
Welcome back to Fox, bitch!
The O.C.‘s Adam Brody is reuniting with his former network via a guest stint on New Girl, TVLine has learned.
In an episode slated to shoot next week (and air in early 2014), Brody will play Berkley, a long-ago ex-boyfriend of Jess’ (Zooey Deschanel) who’s now a married stay-at-home dad. He’s open with his feelings and prides himself on having mastered the art of being an ex, which is probably why he and Jess (allegedly) remained the best of friends after their breakup.
Brody’s recent TV credits have included FX’s The League and Showtime’s House of Lies.
