We love curmudgeonly Nick Miller on Fox’s New Girl…mostly because he’s the guy who uses words like “curmudgeonly.” But we love the guy who plays him, Jake Johnson, even more. JJ came in for a “dy-no-mite” appearance on the InsideTV Podcast to gab about all things New Girl. He spills on-the-set secrets like what went down during his big sleigh sex scene with Olivia Munn, how he was publicly embarrassed in front of the crew, and whether Nick and Jess will ever actually hook up. “There’s a big Nick-Jess development,” reveals Johnson. SAY WHAT?!? That’s right, Johnson says that in an episode they just finished filming, we will see some sort of movement on the relationship that has showed some signs of becoming more than that of mere friend and roommate. “I think something potentially could happen sooner rather than later,” says Johnson, to the delight of shippers everywhere. It’s a blast of a conversation, and you can hear it for yourself by clicking on the audio player icon below. (The New Girl Jake Johnson interview begins at 5:48.)
But first, Jessica and I give our instant reactions to the Golden Globe television nominations, which include two of the most random, hilarious nods ever…which is truly saying something for the Golden Globes. Find out which nominations have us scratching our heads in disbelief. And then we round out the podcast by chatting with the big villain of Survivor: Philippines, Abi-Maria Gomes. Abi says there was one person who was being “a royal bitch” on the island — HER! She also tells us why she was being a royal bitch, why she kept saying “Die, Denise!” after the sex therapist was bitten by a spider, and how if she and mortal enemy RC ever ended up in a Survivor cage match, “I would kill her.” Needless to say, it is a must listen interview for any Survivor fan. (The Survivor finale preview starts at 28:00 and the Abi interview begins at 35:45.)
