Now that Jessica Simpson is cozying up to Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo, will they be double-dating with BFF CaCee Cobb and her boyfriend, Donald Faison?

“CaCee and I prefer to keep our relationship away from the glitz and cameras,” the Scrubs star told PEOPLE at Hollywood Life magazine’s Breakthrough of the Year Awards on Sunday. “But he is a great guy.”

The friendly foursome did log some quality time last week, when they helped Cobb celebrate her 30th birthday at Teddy’s nightclub. (As the bash wound down, Simpson and the NFL star, both 27, were spotted smooching.)

“I think he is really, really, really smart,” added Faison, 33, who was on hand to host the awards show. “[He’s a] really genuine guy.”
