Taran Killam New Girl

Saturday Night Live‘s Taran Killam is making a Tuesday-Night detour, landing a guest stint on Fox’s New Girl, TVLine has learned exclusively.

Killam will appear in an upcoming episode as Fred, Jess new beau who has the world’s most amazing parents (played by the equally-amazing Henry Winkler and Julie Haggerty).

His ‘rents are so awesome, in fact, that Jess considers not breaking up with him in order to remain close to mom and pops.

Killam shot his New Girl episode earlier this month during his SNL hiatus.

    Ugh not a fan of Taran Killiam. Not looking forward to this. But looking to forward to his parents .

    Noooo I want Julian Morris back. His character was so charming.

  3. Azerty says:

    They should have send Jess in England to be with Ryan during Zoey Deschannel’s pregnancy, it was the right opportunity to make it last a little bit longer…I am not really interested to see a new love interest for anyone, they can’t make it stick.

    This sounds like a great premise (and close to home for me), and Taran, Henry and Julie will KILL it! I know that sight unseen. I can’t wait! I’m already imagining a spinoff! (Ignore me. That’s what I do.)

    I loved Ryan and they just threw him away so fast I miss him

  6. JG says:

    Not really a Taran Killam fan but he has to be better than that bore Ryan. (Good riddance!)

  7. Sabrina says:

    Team Nick! That is all.

    Why couldn’t they have stuck with Ryan for one more season?
