New Girl

newgirldamonwayansHappy Endings actor Damon Wayans Jr. will make his return to New Girl in its third season.

The actor was cast in the sitcom’s pilot prior to the second season renewal of happy Endings and had to drop out, making way for Lamorne Morris’ character Winston.

Wayans Jr. will be back in his role of Coach for a “significant” arc in the third season.

His character was cast as the original third roommate before Jess (Zooey Deschanel) moving in.

Coach was referenced occasionally during the first two seasons by the other characters.

Closed captions users were led astray over the weekend with an incorrect caption stating that New Girl’s Zooey Deschanel was the Boston Marathon bombing suspect.

Fox News in the US were reporting on the chase for the suspect when the closed captioning stated that the actress was indeed the 19-year-old being sought.

Deschanel herself didn’t seem too fazed, tweeting: “Whoa! Epic closed captioning FAIL!”
