‘New Girl’s’ Max Greenfield on Golden Globe nod, high-fives with Ed Harris

Max Greenfield, who plays “New Girl’s” resident Jewish assassin/neurotic ladies man Schmidt, isn’t quite convinced his character would categorize a Golden Globe nomination as the ultimate Hanukkah gift.

“It would be up there,” a hoarse-voiced Greenfield said early Thursday morning. “The real gift would be in the type of tuxedo that is involved or what ladies are in attendance. Also, a high-five from Ed Harris would be the bow on the present.”

The 32-year-old actor said he got word of his nomination via a phone call at 5:30 a.m. -- though he had been up much earlier due to an arm-punching daughter who was already up.

But he wouldn’t have it any other way. “It’s great. I get to play an idiot for a living and get recognized for it. It’s like going to a playground every day.”

The next question is whether his character’s book, “The Douche Journals, Volume One” merits a follow-up with this recent accomplishment.

“This calls for a Volume 2,” Greenfield joked. And what would Schmidt do if he were to take home the statue?

“He would say, ‘I’d just like to thank the little people.’”

OK, but what would Greenfield say?

“Thank you to the Hollywood Foreign Press.”
