“New Girl” Star Lamorne Morris on Zooey Deschanel’s Bangs and YouTube Drinking Games
Lamorne Moore plays roommate Winston on “New Girl,” and our guest hosts Lance Bass and Alison Haislip want all the dirt about the Nick/Jess relationship, the cast’s knack for inventing drinking games and what Zooey Deschanel’s bangs are like in real life. Then Lance and Alison talked with Lamorne about his hilarious Trinidad James parody, “No Gold Everything,” which has blown up recently on YouTube.
Having grown up wanting to act, Lamorne worked out his comedy chops at Second City in Chicago and later moved to Hollywood, where he’s now taking the sitcom world by storm.
If you’ve been keeping up with season 2 of “New Girl,” you’ll be familiar with the term “pogo,” which is that one annoying thing you do that friends will complain about behind your back. Lamorne admits his own would be his slouch. “I have terrible posture,” he says, joking that friends can identify him from far away just because of that trait.
“New Girl” is also big on the drinking games. Lamorne advises that for YouTube watchers, the best drinking game would have to involve cats – the furry favorite of web-dwellers.
Staying on topic, we just have to ask about Zooey Deschanel’s famous bangs. “The bangs are real,” he assures us. “Although her stand-in’s bangs are clip-ons.” That’s the business of show for you.
And Lamorne totally admitted that something will finally happen between Nick and Jess.
Finally, Alison and Lance quiz Lamorne about the meanings behind popular rap lyrics, including hits from 50 Cent, 2 Chainz and Jay-Z. Spoiler: he does really, really well!
