Let’s Be Cops tells the story of two deadbeat best friends Ryan (New Girl’s Jake Johnson) and Justin (New Girl’s Damon Wayans, Jr.) who pretend to be police officers following a misunderstanding at a costume party. Nina plays Justin’s love interest, a waitress at the diner the besties frequent who, as far as we can tell in the trailer, starts to take notice of Justin when she thinks he’s a cop. (Kind of a general theme of the film.)
If the behind-the-scenes Instagram snapshots are anything to go by, this cast seemed to have a lot of fun filming — and we think it shows in the trailer. Nina was pretty sad when filming ended on this flick last summer, tweeting: “Annnnnnnddddd that's a WRAP on LET'S BE COPS !!! For me that is.. Movies still shooting. But I'm donezo … Sad face. So much fun.. Don't want it to be over. Gonna miss you guys... @MrJakeJohnson@wayansjr.” We can’t wait to see that chemistry on the big screen — though, next time, we want Nina to be a cop, too.
