Don’t you just love Nick and Jess? They may not be a couple yet, but even actor Jake Johnson (Nick) told Entertainment Weekly how much he’s loving how the writers have pushed Nick and Jess together this season.

“I don’t know if they are actually ready to date, but I love that we are exploring it,” he says. “They gotta start getting together. And there is so much to play with. What if they tried dating? What would happen? If they fall in love, what would happen? What happens if they then break up or date other people? I’m glad we are getting to it. It is time. … Not that we are going to jump all in like next week or something.”

So I bet you’d also love some Nick-and-Jess scoop, right? E! Online has some for us, and you’ll find it reminiscent of a certain Nicholas Sparks story.

“You know how in The Notebook Allie really fell in love with Noah when they danced in the street? Well, replace Noah and Allie with Nick and Jess and replace that South Carolina street with a street in Hollywood and you’ve got a really romantic New Girl moment coming up! Let’s hope the dance is followed by a kiss in the rain, eh?”

Kisses in the rain = most romantic moments, like ever. Nick-and-Jess fans, share your excitement for this moment in the comments!

    Nick is ugly, gross and a big loser. I can’t stand this Jess and Nick thing.

  • Matej

    Hah, that’s a bit harsh :)

  • Rich S

    Dance in the street???…Oh God!My heart just melted!

  • Rich S

    Now it sucks even harder that we wont be getting new episodes,for another whole week!!Damn it FOX!

  • Tanya Marcy

    Haha. That’s exactly what I was thinking.

  • Tanya Marcy

    @superghostcat:disqus…lol. :) But Jake and Zooey have such great chemistry! I think their whole dynamic is real interesting, considering Jess is all light and positive and Nick is all dark and negative. They really do complement each other, even just in friendship. Although, you aren’t far off in the “loser” spectrum – BUT, from a writing/character perspective, I think that’s just part of Nick’s story. Every guy needs to come into their own and figure out what it means for him to be a man. I think it’s cool that New Girl is exploring this in a believable way for this age group. But, everybody has different shipping preferences, of course. I’ve always been more of a Schmidt-Cece fan, myself. :)

  • Tanya Marcy

    I know! It was bad enough we had to wait a week already, haha. Pfft, American Idol….

  • Tanya Marcy

    Oh wait…I guess I had that coming with my opening line for the post. Haha! Now I get it @superghostcat:disqus, you were just answering my question! ;)

  • pinar

    @superghostcat:disqus are you serious ? Nick is adorable <3

  • Sela

    You have got to be kidding!? You should even be on this website, you clearly don’t like the show if you don’t like Nick and Jess!!!

  • Nate

    I agree, Lisa is nuts! I adore Nick and Jess. They have such incredible chemistry. I also disagree with Tanya, I don’t think Nick is a loser. I think a lot of people have a hard time figuring out what they’re going to do with their lives. Such negativity, it’s so annoying.

  • Tanya Marcy

    Oh shoot, it does look like I called Nick a loser up there, lol. I don’t think Nick’s a loser either, @79dfdc855ab424a39053980b5bf5d6b8:disqus. :) I love, Nick! (I’m a big Jake Johnson fan.) I just meant I can see how someone might think that – I sure don’t, though! I think Nick’s arc this season (and Jess’ too, with her teaching job) really speaks to our generation as far as finding what you really want to do with your life. I know I can sure relate!

    I’m SUPER excited about the Nick and Jess stuff coming up! Amazing! This pairing probably has the biggest fanbase that I’ve ever seen of any pairing on tv. Youtube has thousands of videos for them. Twitter/tumblr/different message boards are thrilled with all the developments! It’s actually rather nice to see so many fans supporting this couple!

    Jake and Zooey have the best chemistry that I’ve seen on tv. I love that Nick/Jess are total opposites and yet are similar in certain ways (both are weird which is amazing!) Haha. And I want them to officially get together in THIS season. Like Jake, I can only imagine the storyline potential in seeing them dating/falling in love and going through real life couple issues! It would be so much fun because the characters are multi layered and interesting and did I mention, weird??? Hehe.

    Also, I want to give Jake extra props because he is an amazing actor. Nick is my favorite character. The guy is ADORABLE.

    I want to add that it’s totally normal to be 30 and still trying to figure it all out. It’s realistic, and many fans can relate to that. I think that’s why Nick is so popular with the fans. He’s a REAL character. You forget that he’s fictional because the problems that the writers are writing for him are genuine issues people have. You can have trouble with figuring out your character or who you are as a person. That’s part of growth.

  • Tanya Marcy

    Yes! I love Nick’s level of realism. I absolutely loved what the writers did with his zombie novel idea. I half-expected it to end with Nick having written something decent, so I was kind of glad to see that it ended up sucking (haha), even though I was like, Oh! Poor Nick! But it wasn’t just good comedy (laughed SO hard during that episode’s end scene), it was realistic in a very endearing sort of way. All his struggles just make you love Nick so much more.

    And I also love what Jake Johnson brings to the role. He always does so much more with Nick’s character than what the writing calls for, and it’s definitely what makes Nick so lovable. There are so many New Girl moments where I’m laughing at his delivery and I’m like, This really isn’t that funny. But he MAKES IT funny. :)

  • Sapience

    Wow that’s exactly what I’d pictured: Dancing and rain! Haha I read your minds! :D

    Oh come ON now I love spoilers but this just makes me wanna bite my nails down to my palms I’m so anxious waiting for new episodes. I will say too…there was always a chance that Nick and Jess kissing could have jumped the shark but you know I think the writers are onto something here with it. We all know that its not going to be a hook up anytime soon but we’re watching weekly just anticipating a look between the two of them.
