Former ‘New Girl’ Castmates Reunite in Buddy Cop Film

Damon Wayans Jr, Jake Johnson in the 'New Girl' pilot

It’s about to be a Happy Ending for fans of original New Girl cast members Damon Wayans, Jr. and Jake Johnson: the duo have signed on to star in the buddy comedy flick Let’s Be Cops. If you’re a fan of shenanigans, this will be the movie for you. According to Deadline, Coach (who was later replaced by Winston, aka Lamorne Morris) and Nick Miller will play bored best friends with a zest for something more in their life. So instead of reading stuff on the Internet like normal people (this is what Wikipedia k-holes are for, you guys!), the two decide to impersonate cops (you know, a felony). The only problem with a casual felony? When they get you accidentally involved in real mobster antics. Enter: shenanigans! Tomfoolery! And probably a lot of yelling and flailing. Comedy!

The film is being set up at 20th Century Fox by director Luke Greenfield who also co-wrote the script with Nick Thomas. Hollywood.com has reached out to a rep for Wayans Jr. and Johnson, but had not heard back at the time of publication.

Are you excited to see the duo team up on the big screen?
