After a week off to allow for an episode of The X-Factor (because Fox executives are MONSTERS), New Girl returns tonight with COACH. Damon Wayans, Jr., who was in the pilot episode of New Girl but couldn’t be a series regular due to his commitment to Happy Endings, will be filling the space in the loft vacated by Schmidt during a multi-episode arc that will daringly put two black men ON THE SAME SITCOM. I know, right? And it’s not even UPN.
Ahead of the episode, Hannah Simone — who plays Cece on the show — attended one of Reddit’s AMA’s, and because it wasn’t an Q&A that everyone in the world saw (like they should) I’ve taken the liberty of compiling some of her better, quippier answers, so that you can go into tonight’s episode knowing that the actress behind Cece is as charming and funny as her character. You’re welcome.
Is Schmidt Schmidt outside of being Schmidt?
Only Schmidt would know how to be at Schmitty as Schmidt but that being said there is only one true Schmidt and an actor can’t be Schmidt since Schmidt is Schmidt which leaves us with Schmidt being Schmidt inside and outside of Schmidt.
