Witness ‘New Girl’ Star Max Greenfield’s Near-Death Experience At PaleyFest

If you’ve been watching Fox’s new hit comedy “New Girl,” you’re well aware that despite the series being built around star Zooey Deschanel, the male cast members are no slouches either. In fact, Jake Johnson, Lamorne Morris and Max Greenfield are my absolute favorites. Total scene-stealers.

With that in mind, the following video needs little set-up except that MTV News got to spend a few quality minutes with the cast before their PaleyFest panel recently, and hilarity ensued. Along with a near-death experience.

“I think a true narcissist wants to please his partner in bed because he knows, he doesn’t want to read poor reviews in the paper the next day,” Max said when asked how/why his character Schmidt became a stud in the sack. “Can you imagine that? It takes a lot of work.”

“I can switch my organs around inside of my own body,” Lamorne revealed, when asked what other talents he possessed in addition to bell-playing skills. “And I just did it. I just did it again.”

As to Nick’s future, Jake teased that changes may be afoot. “I think Nick gets sick of getting hurt by women, so he decides not to be the dishrag that everybody thinks he is and starts being more of a ladies man. So he asks his friend Schmidt for help and he gets it, but be careful what you wish for.”

Max started to tell us about how Schmidt is holding on for dear life with regard to his relationship with Cece when he was basically attacked by a huge flying bug.

“That was terrifying!” he said after swatting at the air.

“That mosquito was a vampire!” Lamorne commented off camera.

“What the hell was that?” Max asked everyone around him. “Oh my God. I was almost murdered. Did you see? I was almost killed. Can you imagine? ’Schmidt dies at PaleyFest!'”

Yep, pretty much the best thing we’ve ever seen. Ever. Click play on the video above to hear more from the “New Girl” guys, including Nick and Schmidt’s future business relationship and plans to redecorate the loft.

Is Max Greenfield, like, the funniest guy ever, or what?
