Apparently When Prince Guest-Starred On “New Girl,” He Refused To Call Jake Johnson Anything But “Nick”

So, Jake Johnson not too long ago jumped onto a Zoom name with Washington State University, and he revealed some superior little tidbits about New Girl that had been captured in snippets by TikTookay consumer @sighelena.

Including the truth that he would not learn the script earlier than he bought to set so his reactions would appear real/unrehearsed, and that he didn’t know Taylor Swift was guest-starring till he noticed a blonde lady within the hair and make-up trailer and realized it was the massively well-known pop star.

One of the issues he addressed within the name was the episode Prince appeared in.

According to Johnson, Prince reached out to Fox requesting to seem on the present. He watched it in his tour van, and actually wished Nick and Jess to be collectively — so he stated he’d seem on the present if he might assist make that occur.

And, as everyone knows now, Fox agreed to let him guest-star!


Just in case you’ve in some way forgotten about this iconic episode, it’s the one when Nick tells Jess he loves her, and he or she simply finger weapons again. Prince (showing as himself, in fact) then helps to fix their relationship, resulting in Jess finally telling Nick she loves him too!

While I’m obsessive about the truth that Prince was additionally a “Ness” shipper, my favourite factor Jake revealed in regards to the episode was that, when Prince got here to set, he truly didn’t even name Jake by his title — he solely referred to him as “Nick.”

According to the viral TikTok, Prince got here downstairs with seven folks wearing all purple strolling in a single-file line, then stood 15 ft from Jake and Zooey.

“Like he’s the king,” Jake stated.

Jake stated that one in every of Prince’s company nodded at Zooey, so she walked over to him to speak, after which Prince stated, “I would like to meet Nick now.”

Jake stated, “I walked over and I was like, ‘Hello Prince.’ And he was like, ‘Hello Nick.'” Instead of “Hello, Jake,” lol.

TBH, Prince might’ve referred to as ME Nick and I would not have cared. This is truthfully precisely how I’d’ve pictured Prince’s go to to set, and I’m extremely jealous of Zooey and Jake for having such a cool expertise!

TL;DR: Prince was — and can endlessly be — an absolute legend.
