Lamorne Morris previews 'Bells' episode of 'New Girl'

Zooey DeschanelThe New Girl (tv program)

With each episode of the Fox comedy "New Girl," we've gotten to know Jess and her roomies Nick and Schmidt pretty well. But we haven't learned a lot about Winston.

He played basketball in Europe. He seems to be the most even-keeled of the group. He doesn't have a job, and isn't sure of what job he wants or can get.

But in "Bells," airing at 8 p.m. Nov. 29, we'll see Winston's dark side, teases Chicago native Lamorne Morris.  (He's such a Tunkel.)

"First of all, Winston is extremely good at whatever he does," Morris told me during a Thanksgiving week interview at RedEye. "He's extremely competitive, so if he touches it he's going to own it, you know what I mean?"

In "Bells," Winston decides to learn how to play the handbells after Jess (Zooey Deschanel) asks him to help out her handbell quartet. Things get out of hand, so to speak.

"He learns how to play an instrument and Zooey is not very fond of him for it. She's not very fond of him," Morris said. "Initially she is, but because he's so competitive he may take it a little overboard, like really overboard, like too overboard, to the point where it's ridiculous. And then it's kind of like, 'All right, chill out dude.'"

Check out the clips from the episode in the player above.
