nelson franklin mar 2011 gi 'New Girl' casts Cece's boyfriend and Winston's momJess isn’t the only one making new friends on “New Girl” Season 2. While Zooey Deschanel‘s elementary school teacher is getting a new love interest in the form of “Bent” star David Walton, her TV BFF Cece (Hannah Simone) is getting a new boyfriend of her own.

According to TV Guide, Cece’s new man, Robby, will be played by Nelson Franklin. It appears Cece will keep straying from her usual d-bag club promoter type and date a nice guy who is “an embarrassingly bad dancer and deaf in one ear.” That doesn’t sound very Schmidt-like, but it’s definitely different from her early Season 1 dudes.

Winston (Lamorne Morris) is not getting a new love interest just yet (things should be going well with girlfriend Shelby), but we will meet one of his family members. According to TVLine, Anna Maria Horsford has signed on to play his tough-talking mom who doesn’t happen to care for his roommate Schmidt.
