TVLine announces that Adam Brody (The O.C.) is coming to New Girl this season – as Jess’ ex. But don’t worry Nick, he was a boyfriend of “long-ago” and he’s “mastered the art of being an ex”, so I think it’s safe to assume that he’s not coming back around to woo Jess.
In an episode slated to shoot next week (and air in early 2014), Brody will play Berkley, a long-ago ex-boyfriend of Jess’ (Zooey Deschanel) who’s now a married stay-at-home dad. He’s open with his feelings and prides himself on having mastered the art of being an ex, which is probably why he and Jess (allegedly) remained the best of friends after their breakup.
Like, how best best of friends? What storyline do you think will lead up to seeing Adam Brody as Berkley on the show?
