Jake Johnson stars as Nick, a dude still pining for his ex-girlfriend in the freshman sitcom New Girl. Zooey Deschanel is Jess, a recently single lady who moves in with Nick and his two buddies (Max Schmidt and Lamorne Morris, who replaced Happy Endings actor Damon Wayans Jr).
While living in New York, Johnson roomed with a lady who, in his words, “was really into goth.”
“We didn’t get along very well,” recalls Johnson. “We weren’t great old friends. And the weirdest moment that happened was I took a shower one morning, I had to wake up real early to get to something and I took a hot shower and I stood up really fast. I walked out of the bathroom and I fainted. Had a towel on. Towel fell. My naked body hit the ground. I woke up a little bit after, and I saw that she had walked through my room to the kitchen to get coffee and come back and not check on me! She didn’t even say to me ‘Your naked body is slammed on the hardwood floor.’ She just got her coffee and came back.”
In the premiere episode of New Girl, Jess admitted that she watches Dirty Dancing whenever she needs an escape. For Johnson and Morris, it’s basketball.
