He later worked as a staff writer on the series. In fact, the character of Junior was loosely based on Wayans Jr. himself.
He appeared in and served as a writer on The Underground. Wayans Jr. also surprised audiences when he garnered a standing ovation during his debut appearance on Def Comedy Jam.
He also starred in the Wayans family comedy Dance Flick as the film’s main character, Thomas. From April 2011 to May 2013, Wayans starred as Brad Williams, one of the lead characters in the ABC comedy series Happy Endings, alongside Eliza Coupe, Elisha Cuthbert, Zachary Knighton, Adam Pally, and Casey Wilson. Despite critical acclaim and a cult following, the show was canceled by ABC after concluding its third season on May 3, 2013.
Wayans was nominated for “Best Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series” at the NAACP Image Awards and Critic’s Choice Television Awards for his work on Happy Endings. On May 16, 2011, the Fox Network announced that it had picked up the Zooey Deschanel anchored comedy New Girl, which featured Wayans in the supporting role of Coach.
However, Happy Endings had already been picked up for a second season on the rival network ABC. The producers of New Girl initially planned to recast Wayans’ role, but later decided not to recast nor reshoot the pilot episode in which he appeared.
Instead, starting with the second episode, Wayans’ character was substituted with Lamorne Morris, playing the role of Winston, a former roommate who had been pursuing a professional basketball career in Latvia.
With Happy Endings canceled after its third season, it was announced in July 2013 that Wayans would return for at least 4 episodes of New Girl in the upcoming third season.
