With Greg gone and Josh Chan dating someone new, Crazy Ex-Girlfriend‘s Rebecca Bunch suddenly has an opening for a new romantic foil. Enter: Nathaniel, an arrogant alpha-male lawyer played by Greek alum Scott Michael Foster.
Nathaniel, who makes his debut this Friday (The CW, 9/8c) in the second of two all-new episodes, enters Rebecca’s orbit when his dad’s prestigious L.A. law firm buys a stake in Whitefeather & Associates — which makes him Rebecca’s new boss. TVLine went to the Crazy Ex-Girlfriend set to get the scoop on Nathaniel’s arrival… and to see whether there are any sparks between him and Rebecca.
“He’s very Darwinian,” showrunner Aline Brosh McKenna says of Nathaniel. His hyper-efficient, no-nonsense approach to work means that he “clashes with Rebecca right away, who’s all about emotion and leaves work whenever she feels like it. And he wants to run that place like a really tight ship.” But that doesn’t mean Rebecca’s not still interested in him, star Rachel Bloom adds: “He kind of treats her like garbage, which is what she’s attracted to.”
