She eventually finds a new place to stay when she moves in with three young men: Nick, a law-school-dropout-turned-bartender; Schmidt, a white-collar worker who believes he is God's gift to women; and Winston, a former basketball player who has just returned from a 2 year stint in Latvia where he played pro-ball.

Cast and charactersEdit

  • Zooey Deschanel as Jessica "Jess" Day, the eponymous "new girl". She is a cute, bubbly middle school teacher in her late 20s who moves in with three guys in an apartment she found on Craigslist after a messy break-up with her boyfriend. Jess has a tendency to get into awkward situations due to her aversion to confrontation. Among her personality traits is her tendency to burst into song, sometimes making up lyrics reflecting her situation.
  • Jake Johnson as Nick Miller, one of Jess's new roommates. Nick is a law school dropout turned bartender who has also gone through a slightly-less-recent break up. He is revealed to be thirty and originally from Chicago.
  • Max Greenfield as Schmidt, one of Jess's new roommates. Schmidt is the stereotypical lothario (which he thinks he is) and so-called "douchebag" of the group. Schmidt is the only male employee in his company and is often the subject of mockery by his female coworkers. Schmidt is a womanizer and seen to be taking a liking to Cece who seems to have mutual feelings. They have a sexual relationship with each other and it looks like they may begin to date.
  • Lamorne Morris as Winston Bishop, one of Jess's new roommates and the original "missing" roommate that left room for Jess to move in. Winston returns from playing basketball in Latvia in the second episode. Winston is incredibly competitive and has an uncanny ability to pick up new skills with little effort, but he has a difficult time finding and keeping employment because he quickly becomes bored with repetitive tasks.
  • Hannah Simone as Cecilia "Cece" Meyers, Jess's childhood best friend and a model.

The character of Coach, played by Damon Wayans Jr., appeared in the pilot only. He, Nick, Schmidt and Winston were the original four roommates in the apartment. In the second episode, Coach has left, and Winston returns to the apartment.
