Wayans was originally signed on to guest star as Coach for four episodes. His first episode aired on Tuesday. The estranged former roommate returned with a macho attitude and had no memory of Jess (Zooey Deschanel).

Fans will remember that Wayans starred on the series pilot and the first episode before leaving to star on ABC's “Happy Endings.”

Wayans played Brad on all three seasons of “Happy Endings.” His credits also include writing and appearing on “My Wife and Kids” and “The Underground.”
