In this exclusive scoop from TVLine on Coach’s (Damon Wayans Jr.) return to New Girl and to the loft, we find out Taye Diggs’ character, Artie isn’t just a pretty face – he’s actually part of a plan Jess and Cece cook up to challenge Coach, according to Hannah Simone (Cece).
“Coach returns to the loft, and he gets the guys to go a strip club with him to help him get over his ex-girlfriend. Cece convinces Jess to beat him at his own game. So they call Artie, played by Taye Diggs. Trouble ensues.”
Call Artie? Wait a minute, so Jess already knows Artie?
Taye Diggs: “Artie is a coffee shop owner that Jess meets, and I guess Artie has asked Jess out a few times.”
Hmm, what will Nick say about this Artie guy, huh? Probably not many good things, if Jess ends up in bed with him! Also according to Hannah Simone, in this episode Taye Diggs’ Artie will “fully dis-robe” and “end up in bed” with another character on the show. Will it indeed be Jess, or is this a trick spoiler?
