Happy Endings Lesbian Twist: Cougar Town Actress to Play Jane's Ex-Girlfriend!

Happy Endings Briga Heelan Jane GirlfriendTurns out Max isn’t the only member of the Happy Endings crew with a fondness for the same sex.

The ABC comedy is blowing the lid off of Jane’s (Eliza Coupe) lesbian past, and it’s using Cougar Town scene-stealer Briga Heelan to do it.

TVLine has learned that Heelan, who recurs as Grayson’s baby mama on C-Town, has been cast as Ryan, an ex-lover of Jane’s whose reappearance makes hubby Brad intensely uncomfortable. (An ex-boyfriend, he can deal with. An ex-girlfriend? Not so much.)

Heelan is slated to guest star in the 10th episode of Happy Endings‘ third season, which (at long last) kicks off on Oct. 23.

    Why does it always have to be a “lesbian past”, Ausiello? There is such a thing as bisexuality.

  3. tulip says:

    A person who is attracted to people of both genders are bisexual, not “lesbian” or “gay”. Of course, some people associate with one category or another.
    That being said, I’m way excited for the new season!

    For crying out loud! It’s a tv show not a social movement! Lesbian or bisexual, sounds interesting…

    What about Kickball 2: The Kickening? When the hell are we gonna be able to see that?

  6. Superhero says:

    I’m okay with this.

  7. Jared says:

    everyone’s a little gay :D

  8. i think jane character during season 2 drop some clues that during college she was bi because she got bored of men… i have to do a marathon…best sitcom for me…

  9. TV Gord says:

    I guess this makes sense…since Happy Endings is just a Cougar Town ripoff that tries too hard.

  10. I Love the show and it’s one of the best ideas!!!

  11. Theo says:

    I am already laughing at this storyline, this show is going to hurt me with laughter

  12. Roman says:

    I really don’t see any similarities between Happy Endings and Cougar Town other than both being comedies about wacky friends. Which also describes like 90% of sitcoms.

    A lot of women who were 20ish in the mid-90s have a “lesbian past”.
