taye diggs new girl

*Looks like “New Girl’s” Jess (Zooey Deschanel) has eyes for another man?

In an episode to air Nov. 5, Jess blows off steam following an argument with boyfriend Nick (Jake Johnson) by hitting the town with BFF Cece (Hannah Simone). They end up meeting the sexy owner of a nearby coffee shop, played by Taye Diggs.

“Jess gets a little drunk and is definitely enjoying his company, but he ends up being a bit more than she bargained for,” says executive producer Liz Meriwether, who insists his presence is not a real threat to the Nick-Jess romance.

Nonetheless, Nick’s jealousy kicks into full swing, so fans can expect a big blowup.

Adds Meriwether, “Taye Diggs could make any man feel insecure.”
