Damon Wayans Jr. Is Leaving 'New Girl' ...Again
I’m going to go ahead and start the absolutely 100% made-up rumor that Happy Endings is coming back to the air. That’s the only comfort I can find in both Adam Pally and Damon Wayans leaving their respective shows.
Wayans’ Coach has consistently been one of the strongest parts on New Girl, somehow despite the fact that, like with Winston, the writers never fully figured out what to do with his character. They never really made it past “He’s, you know… a basketball coach. That’s a character, right?” But Wayans made it work.
And remember, Coach has left us before. He initially signed on for season one of New Girl when it looked like Happy Endings was going to be canceled. But then it wasn’t, so Coach was replaced with Winston. Now there’s no word on why he’s is choosing to leave (with no official comment made to disprove my made-up rumor!), but don’t you worry about Damon Wayans. He’s going to be just fine.
After all, just take a look at his resumé.
Oh yeah. He’ll be fine.
