We all watched helplessly as Winston (Lamorne Morris) punched Nick in the Sharons during this week’s new episode of New Girl, “Table 34″, when he found out that he and Jess had kissed. But I bet you noticed that Schmidt (Max Greenfield) still doesn’t know…so what’s going to happen once he finds out?
Max Greenfield himself shared some spoilers with E! Online about just how Schmidt will be taking the news. (Hint: It involves a lot of yelling.)
When will Schmidt and Winston find out about the kiss?
“I think it’s the next two [episodes]. I think Winston finds out and then I find out. You can imagine Schmidt’s reaction. It’s a little greater than Winston’s. I don’t know if greater is the right word, but it’s certainly more intense. He has a more intense reaction.”
Like a physical reaction? Are there screams?
“At some point during the episode I was like, ‘I feel like I’m yelling this entire episode.’ I was like, ‘Why am I yelling?’ I was like, ‘I really don’t know how to do this dialogue other than to yell everything.’ It’s just, you read it and you have to yell.”
Was your throat a little sore at the end of the day?
“There was one point in the script where it literally says he loses his voice, he’s yelling so loud. And I totally lost my voice. I’m dreading the ADR that I’m going to have to do for this episode. I’m gonna have to redo total monologues and ADRs and it’s going to be awful. It’s gonna be like one of those kung fu movies.”
So if all goes according to New Girl plan, we should be getting some Schmidt-yelling in episode 17, “Parking Spot”. (It certainly sounds by the guide that Schmidt/Max would be doing a lot of yelling during that episode.)
What did you think of Winston’s reaction to “the kiss”, and are you nervous/excited to see how “intense” Schmidt will get after hearing about it?
