Max Greenfield on Schmidt’s Status as NEW GIRL’s Breakout Character, Emmy Chances, and Behind-the-Scenes Hilarity

Before star Max Greenfield took the stage of Toronto’s historic Massey Hall to thank Canadian ad buyers for supporting NEW GIRL during this afternoon’s CityTV Upfront, he took to the press room to face the nation [of television critics].
