After Schmidt White-Fanged his breakup with CeCe at the end of the last season of New Girl, we knew it was only a matter of time before she found herself another man.
New Girl producers apparently thought so, too, as they’ve cast Traffic Light’s Nelson Franklin as CeCe’s new boyfriend named Robby. He was described to to TV Guide as “the anti-Schmidt…a genuinely nice guy who is an embarrassingly bad dancer and deaf in one ear.” It sounds to us like a rivalry’s in the works.
Franklin starred in the short-lived Fox sitcom Traffic Light before it was cancelled after one season in 2011. He had a minor role in Scott Pilgrim v.s. The World and made a handful of appearances as a graphic designed on The Office.
Franklin will appear in New Girl’s Season 2 premiere, which is set for Sept. 25.
