Why: FOX’s “New Girl” had a solid first season, but has been on a creative and comedic upswing in its second one. Much of that can be attributed to Johnson’s performance as Nick Miller. As a long-time launching pad for taking mid-level stars and sending them into the stratosphere, “SNL” could do worse that giving Johnson a chance to make that leap. Like Jacobs, Johnson could play well off every member in the cast, with his recent arc on “New Girl” and his role in “Safety Not Guaranteed” both exhibiting a sweet side under his comedically gruff exterior. Both qualities would serve him and “SNL” well.
