‘New Girl’: Dermot Mulroney Returns to Shame Jess Into a Fake Engagement (Exclusive Video)



Jessica Day (Zooey Deschanel), your nose is growing.
The seventh and final season of “New Girl” begins Tuesday with a premiere that picks up approximately three years after last year’s finale, and sees Jess and the gang having progressed significantly in their respective lives. Well, most of them have.
In the preview clip above from the Fox comedy’s season-opener, exclusive to TheWrap, Jess runs into her ex Russell aka “Fancyman” (Dermot Mulroney) at a birthday party for Schmidt (Max Greenfield) and Cece’s (Hannah Simone) daughter Ruth (Rhiannon and Danielle Rockoff).

The two start chatting about how she’s left the world of teaching, and how maybe she should go work for him (she still has no idea what he does for a living, by the way). However, Jess gets embarrassed when her relationship with Nick (Jake Johnson) comes up. The couple — finally dating successfully for the past three years — have just returned from a European book tour for Nick’s best-seller, “The Pepperwood Chronicles.”
But Russell is shocked they haven’t made it to the altar yet — let alone gotten engaged. Wait, maybe they have and Jess was just confused there for a second. Oh, yeah, this will go well.
Watch the clip above.

The music legend didn’t make many onscreen appearances, but he did make them count

In his semi-autobiographical film debut, Prince plays a musician who struggles in his home life and channels all his energy and passion into music. Designed as a star vehicle for the musician, the 1984 film contained several extended concert sequences.

Prince directed and starred in 1986’s “Under the Cherry Moon,” co-starring Kristin Scott Thomas. He played a gigolo who worked with a partner to swindle rich French women, but things, of course, get complicated when he falls in love with one of them.

In 1990, Prince reprised his “Purple Rain” role as the Kid in the semi-sequel, “Graffiti Bridge,” this time as a more successful musician and club owner who must contend with rivals in attempting to keep his business.

Prince played an Egyptian prince in “3 Chains O’ Gold,” a 1994 direct-to-video film co-starring the New Power Generation.

Prince made a surprise appearance on “American Idol” in 2006, performing “Lolita” and “Satisfied” off his smash hit new album “3121.”

In his final acting role, Prince played himself on Fox’s “New Girl” in 2014, giving Nick (Jake Johnson) and Jess (Zooey Deschanel) the freakout moment of a lifetime before dispensing some sage advice. Only in L.A.!
