Does New Girl‘s Jess (Zooey Deschanel) have eyes for another man? After an argument with boyfriend Nick (Jake Johnson), she and BFF Cece (Hannah Simone) hit the town and meet the sexy owner of a nearby coffee shop (Taye Diggs) in the Nov. 5 episode.
“Jess gets a little drunk and is definitely enjoying his company, but he ends up being a bit more than she bargained for,” says executive producer Liz Meriwether, who insists his presence is not a real threat to the Nick-Jess romance. Nonetheless, Nick’s jealousy kicks into full swing, so fans can expect a big blowup. Adds Meriwether, “Taye Diggs could make any man feel insecure.”
