Wow! "New Girl's" Nick Miller Certainly Has a Type, Doesn't He?

By Dustin Rowles | Trade News | February 4, 2013 | Comments ()


Turtle-faced Nick Miller, maybe the best male sitcom character currently on television (having supplanted Ron Swanson, in an off year) doesn't have a lengthy dating history that we know of on "New Girl," but we do know he gravitates toward the same type. There's one of two possible reasons for this. 1) He's trying very hard to find the exact opposite of his only serious relationship, with Caroline:


Or he's gravitating toward stand-ins for Jess.


First there was Lizzy Caplan's Julia:


Then there was Olivia Munn's Angie:


Now comes word that Nick's next love interest will be Shane, played by Odette Annable.


What it mostly means, besides the fact that Nick clearly has a love for dark-haired beautiful women (and all white brunettes look the same, am I right?) is that Nick and Jess won't be requite their unrequiteness anytime soon, as Nick will start a fling with Shane, who will be his new boss at the bar. That could mean she'll be around for a while, and that's great news for those of us who worry that Nick and Jess consummating their relationship could doom "New Girl."

In the meantime, while "New Girl" continues to keep Jess and Nick apart, here are some more casting choices for future girlfriends of Nick.

Katy Perry. Obviously.


Krysten Ritter


Alison Brie


And, of course, Emily Deschanel.


Nick Miller greets all these choices with the same face (hat tip: Lainey):

Comments Are Welcome, Bigots and Trolls Are Not

  • Nice work. The picture of Brie and Kaplan air kissing wins the internet as far as I'm concerned.
    I would add that a picture of 'The Waitress' with dark hair would have helped sell the point so much more...

    I don't know. Bones may be a steady source of income, but it's also a dead end. She could branch out a little.

  • ,

    She makes ME branch out, if you get my drift.

  • Nick and I have really similar types because I love everyone you posted, particularly Brie, Ritter, and Munn. Ritter playing a character similar to the Chloe in Apt23 would be fun alongside Jess.

    'That could mean she’ll be around for a while, and that’s great
    news for those of us who worry that Nick and Jess consummating their
    relationship could doom “New Girl.”'
    But also bad news for those of us who worry that bringing in Odette Annable to a show built on strong, nuanced performances will doom New Girl for at least a little while.

  • Wicked

    I say Allison Brie because BOOBS.

  • LaineyBobainey

    I would LOVE Krysten Ritter to show up on New Girl! I'd also love Krysten to stop spelling her name in that stupid way, but whatever. Can't have everything.

  • Jo 'Mama' Besser

    Her parents did that her, her middle name is Alyce. They hate her.

  • randomhookup

    Let's bring in Ellen Page as a shorter version of Jess.

  • lowercase_ryan

    Emily Deschanel would be hilarious.

  • mairimba

    Why do you have to go and ruin things including Katy Perry, man?

  • toblerone

    "Turtle-faced Nick Miller, maybe the best male sitcom character currently on television" REALLY?

    I'd put Louie CK and Sterling Archer ahead of Nick. But Swanson still wins even in an off year.

    Emily Blunt would make fine girlfriend material.

  • fribbley

    If Ritter visits (and she should), I demand that she bring James VDB with her.

  • KC

    WORD. I think that should lead to James VDB making a random cameo in every movie/tv show that Ritter is in for the rest of time.

  • Blake

    Yet another thing Nick and I share... A love of brunettes.


  • Kballs

    Two minor edits (in CAPS):

    "He’s trying very hard to find the exact opposite of his only serious relationship, with THE WAITRESS"

    Odette "THE ASS" Annable

    Fix them immediately.

  • nosio

    I can never look at Odette Annable's name without thinking "THE ASS!"

  • BlackRabbit

    Enquiring minds want to know how she got that nickname.

  • Uriah_Creep

    See the following:


    I can't believe I even found that again.

  • LaineyBobainey

    WHY are all the old comments gone? What the shit? Is this some horrible Disqus thing? Did it make the old comments go away?

    Did everyone already know this and I'm *just* now noticing?

  • Uriah_Creep

    Yes indeed, the Rowles Overlord (he's not the Overlord of me!) told me they lost a lot of comments in the Disqus transition. I first noticed the lost comments when I looked up reviews from a few months ago to see what Pajibates (pronounced like "reprobate") thought of the movies and found exactly no comments. Yet another resason to hate that bloated Disqus software.
