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.
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!
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.
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.”
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.
