Said corporate drone ultimately discovers the thief (Zano) created a much more fulfilling life with his identity than he ever did — and thus he engages the con man to help him improve his prospects.

    That was an episode of Friends, when Monica’s identity was stolen she became friends with the theif who was living a better life as “Monica” than the real Monica.

    That means that Nick won’t stick around in 90210… Poor Naomi – no luck with guys :D

    I love Michaela Watkins! Too bad she’s stuck in a show with two men who’s comedy skills are… questionable.

    Oh please – like anyone who matters watches 902whatever.

    Nick has boosted ratings on ‘2 Broke Girls’ with his on-and-off-screen relationship with costar Kat. With Haylie Duff in his rear-view, along with 90210 for which his contract concluded, Nick’s career continues to move with accelerated momentum. GO NICK!

      This guy was brutally bad on 2 Broke Girls. Awful. Maybe it was the way they wrote the script, but a more boring character would have had to be dead. That character had NO charisma, and I was glad when they wrote him out.

    Loved him on 2BG, and wish they had not taken the storyline the way they had and kept him on because it was something special.

  9. Alex says:

    As a dude I aways thought he was funny but he only did love stuff it’s going to be interesting to see him in a group of guys.

  10. Bennett says:

    Does this mean he will no longer be on 2 broke girls?

  11. MadMax says:

    Is he gonna show his abs, thats what really matters!!!!

  12. Mel Markowitz says:

    I met Nick in a store that I work at and the 2 times that I have met him and he is nice person and I wish him the best. He is easy to talk with. He made me feel very comfortable and I would like to wish him the best.
