You may have watched Fox’s hit comedy The New Girl last night and wondered, what the heck happened. Basically, Lamorne Morris has replaced Damon Wayans Jr.

Morris will play Winston, a competitive former athlete who has realized he’ll never go pro and moves into the loft shared with three roommates played by Zooey Deschanel, Max Greenfield and Jake Johnson. Wayans played Coach, one of the roommates, in the pilot but the role was in second position to ABC’s Happy Endings, which was recently picked up for a second season. So, that’s where you can find Damon Wayna’s Jr. from now on.

Morris’ credits include hosting Cartoon Network’s game show Brain Rush and hosting his own show HotWyred on BET and several of the cable network’s live-show specials.
