Damon Wayans, Jr.

Latest role: Brad Williams, Happy Endings (ABC)

Technically the second generation Wayans brother is out of work (at least as far as TV is concerned). Unless his upcoming comedy flick Let's Be Cops catapaults him into film stardom, we hope he finds a new TV home soon, as he stands out in any ensemble he joins. New Girl fans are still eager for his return, and meanwhile, on Happy Endings, he won many of the weekly tug-of-war contests between the cast to emerge as the scene stealer, with a knack for spitfire delivery and the type of zany quirkiness you'd expect from Homey the Clown's son. In fact, if Wayans Jr. does return to TV, it should be as the lead, instead of the over-achieving, out-acting co-star work he's been doing the past three years.
