The View: Max Greenfield New Girl
On New Girl, Max Greenfield plays Schmidt. Schmidt started out the series as a narcissistic womanizer. It seemed for a while all Schmidt cared about was being the perfect specimen of a man with a never ending queue of women in his doorway. It all changed when Jess (Zooey Deschanel) moved in and her best friend and super model CeCe (Hannah Simone) came into Schmidt’s life.
Now he’s still concerned with being perfect, but he has been trying to capture CeCe’s heart, unsuccessfully for two seasons. This year, Greenfield was nominated for a Golden Globe for his performance as Schmidt.
The View: Max Greenfield Married
New Girl is Greenfield’s first big role and before that his family had had some difficult times. He and his wife have been together for 10 years. When they go out, especially at this year’s Golden Globes, they both enjoy the success New Girl has brought. She enjoyed her jewelry, he said, and he wore a Tom Ford suit. They were both looking glamorous.
Greenfield said that his wife has taught him to have proper posture in public and that no is an unacceptable answer. He joked that he always hears her in the back of his head, coaching him through life.
Like his character, Greenfield keeps things tidy in his home. Schmidt is almost obsessive compulsive over order and cleanliness. Greenfield said he doesn’t bother a bit of mess, but he hates things to be dirty.
The View: Max Greenfield in 50 Shades of Grey?
He never admitted to reading the novel, but Greenfield did say he would like to play the part of Christian Grey in 50 Shades of Grey. He said he would be totally fine with doing full frontal nudity. He already works out for New Girl, where he often walks around in his underwear.
