Kimmy Schmidt Sneak Peek: Titus Plays It Straight (!) to Woo Jacqueline

Look out, ladies of New York: “Cork Rockingham” is on the prowl.

In this first-look clip from Season 3 of Netflix’s Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt (debuting next Friday, May 19), the ever-flamboyant Titus (Tituss Burgess) stuffs himself back in the closet to play the role of “Cork Rockingham,” a totally straight dude with a totally straight voice who’s totally into Jacqueline (Jane Krakowski). The tiny red bowtie he’s wearing is a bit of a giveaway, though.

It seems this is all a ruse for the benefit of Duke (guest star Josh Charles), the rich-jerk brother of Jacqueline’s new love Russ Snyder (David Cross), who also has his eye on Jacqueline. After she and “Cork” admit to a night of fiery passion at the Foxwoods Casino, Duke steps in and confesses his own feelings. And Jacqueline can’t decide between them: “You’re both exactly my type.”

To break the tie, she orders her two suitors to dance for her. And Titus dances a little too well… until Jacqueline reminds him that he’s “Cork” now, and he settles for imitating Duke’s white-guy gyrations. Which involve some kind of spanking? Yeah, we’re as confused as Titus is.

Press PLAY on the video above for a sneak peek at Kimmy Season 3, then hit the comments with your thoughts on Titus’ attempt to go straight.

    Did Jacqueline get married over the hiatus? She mentions that she is now a “married woman” – so did she and Russ tie the knot?
