reports that Broadway star Josh Grad will appear in the season 2 premiere as a character named Bearclaw, a beer delivery guy at Nick's bar who tries to get Jess' attention.
Additionally, Nelson Franklin, who appeared on Traffic Light
and The Office
, will serve as the boyfriend of Hannah Simone's Cece. According to TV Guide
, Franklin's character, Robby, is "a genuinely nice guy who is an embarrassingly bad dancer and deaf in one ear."
Meanwhile, New Girl has also tapped on Anna Maria Horsford to play Winston's (Lamorne Morris) mother, Charmaine Bishop. The actress, who has appeared on Grey's Anatomy, The Shield and Everybody Hates Chris, is described as a tough-talking Chicagoan who brought up her children to become professional basketball players. Apparently, she also hates Schmidt.
What do you think of Jess' new love interest? With the arrival of Robby, do you think there is still hope for Cece and Schmidt? And what do you think of Winston's mom? Don't forget to catch the second season of New Girl beginning Tuesday, September 25 at 9/8c on FOX.
