Lamorne Morris says everyone on "New Girl" breaks character while filming Fox's hit sitcom. But the Chicago native who plays even-keeled Winston cracks up the most. "Whenever Jake and Max have a conversation, I don't want to be in that scene. I'm ruining the take because it is so hysterical...," Morris said of his co-stars, Max Greenfield and Chicago native Jake Johnson, who with Morris play the three male roommates to Zooey Deschanel's quirky Jess. Morris said that the cast does get serious, and that's when he has to straighten up. "After Hour 14 [of filming]

With Fox's "New Girl" returning its third season, star and Chicago native Lamorne Morris recently visited RedEye to talk about the show and what's in store for Winston, Jess, Nick and Schmidt. More importantly, Morris talked about the origins of the drinking game True American, which the show's characters introduced to fans in Season 1. In the game, players must stand on chairs, tables, countertops or anything that keeps them off the floor, which has become molten lava. Through a series of commands, shouts, trivia or whatever else players invent, they move around...

With each episode of the Fox comedy "New Girl," we've gotten to know Jess and her roomies Nick and Schmidt pretty well. But we haven't learned a lot about Winston. He played basketball in Europe. He seems to be the most even-keeled of the group. He doesn't have a job, and isn't sure of what job he wants or can get. But in "Bells," airing at 8 p.m. Nov. 29, we'll see Winston's dark side, teases Chicago native Lamorne Morris.  (He's such a Tunkel.) "First of all, Winston is extremely good at whatever he does," Morris told me during a...

So you've met a hot guy, and he looks exactly like "True Blood"star Ryan Kwanten, but he's lame as hell. Would you put a bag over any conversation and do your business, or kick him to the curb? That's the quandary Jess (Zooey Deschanel) faces in the "Valentine's Day" episode of Fox's"New Girl," airing at 8 p.m. Feb. 14. Kwanten guest stars as Oliver, a hot guy Jess meets when her roomies take her out on Valentine's Day. But as you can see from the video clips in the player above, Oliver is pretty ... boring.

It can't be easy for an actor to step into a guest-starring role on a TV show, mixing it up with a cast that's been working together for weeks or even months. That wasn't an issue with Justin Long, who reprises his role of Paul Gunslinger on the Fox comedy "New Girl" in "Bad in Bed," airing at 8 p.m. Dec. 6. "The thing about Justin; we love him to death," cast member Lamorne Morris told me. "He came in and he brought that new energy to the set; it was absolutely incredible.

Some of my fondest memories of my early single years (notice I said “early”) in Chicago have to do with the holidays, when my friends and I would get together and not only drink, but make Thanksgiving or Christmas dinner. Those get-togethers always were enjoyable and sometimes uncomfortable - I'm thinking specifically of the time I accidentally eavesdropped on some rather loud sex being had in the bedroom next to the pantry where I was trying to sleep.
