Even though Wayans Jr. has been totally rocking out as Coach in every episode, he was still being billed as a guest star. Come on, even Winston's cat Ferguson gets better billing than that! But now it's offish: The handsome comedian will be a regular on the fourth season of "New Girl," which means we can only hope for more amazing Coach insights like, "It really bums me out that I will never know the infinite joy of what it feels like to carry a child inside of me."
Meanwhile, his "Happy Endings" co-star Adam Pally is over on "The Mindy Show" killing it as the fratty gyno Peter Prentice. Pally was made a series regular last September. Casey Wilson, who played the lovelorn Penny on "Happy Endings," is set to star in "Marry Me," a show created by "Happy Endings" showrunner (and Wilson's fiancé) David Caspe. Eliza Coupe, who played Wayan Jr.'s onscreen wife Jane, also has a new show in the works over at USA. So far, there are plenty of happy endings to go around.
Damon Wayans Jr. and "New Girl" co-star Jake Johnson have a movie coming out on August 13 called "Let's Be Cops," which should tide us over until the fall TV season begins.
