Nina Dobrev and Damon Wayans Jr. Behind the Scenes of Let’s Be Cops (PHOTO)
Nina Dobrev has the best co-stars — and we’re not just talking about the cast of The Vampire Diaries. Over the summer, Nina filmed Let’s Be Copsduring her TVD hiatus. You’ll never guess who she managed to nab as her co-stars: Not one, but two New Girls cast members!
That’s right, it was a regular television collision of worlds on the set of Let’s Be Cops, as Nina took to the streets of Atlanta with Damon Wayans Jr. (Coach) and Jake Johnson (Nick). Basically, she’s their Zooey Deschanel in this scenario. Just kidding! Nina isn’t interchangeable with anyone. We think her co-stars might think so, too. The three buddies spent their shoot snapping silly behind-the-scenes shots of one another for social media. Apparently, Damon is feeling nostalgic because he just re-grammed this one of he and Nina looking glamorous on set.
“My costar @ninadobrev & I on set of the movie #LetsBeCops! Dropping THIS SUMMER! Look out for it! @mrjakejohnson is starring in it too! #BoysInBlueBalls,” Damon captioned the pic.
We’ll have to wait to see if the flick is as entertaining as these behind-the-scenes photos, but — with a cast like this one — it’s hard to imagine how it won’t be. According to the IMDB page, Let’s Be Cops tells the story of “a pair of buddies [who] hatch a plan to impersonate police officer but soon find themselves way in over their heads.” Damon and Jake play the buddies. We’re not sure where Nina comes into all of this, but we’re going to assume she’s playing at least three roles. What? There could be doppelgangers in the film.
