When the pilot episode for “New Girl” aired on Fox, it was Max Greenfield as Schmidt, Jake Johnson as Nick and Damon Wayans, Jr. in the role of “Coach” – the third male roommate to Zooey Deschanel’s lone female presence. But when Wayans, Jr. was selected to head on over to ABC and star in “Happy Endings”, he was replaced by Lamorne Morris when the NG series went to a full schedule. Alas, while there will be no Coach appearance in the apartment, Johnson and Wayans, Jr. will team up again in the new movie “Let’s Be Cops” where the pair play brain-dead friends who decide it might be a good idea to impersonate cops and then, inevitably, run afoul of a gangster while they are pretending to be the long arm of the law. Hilarity is reported to ensue.
“Let’s Play Cops” is expected to have a 2014 release.
