Max Greenfield of Fox’s ‘New Girl’ had a ‘Saturday Night Live’-themed bar mitzvah

SIGN UP FOR THE JTA DAILY BRIEFING

Max Greenfield is hilarious.

His character Schmidt in the FOX show “New Girl” breaks douchebaggery records on a weekly basis. He often takes his shirt off to show off his body, but he still cares for his roommates, especially for Zooey Deschanel’s character Jess.

So why do you need to know more about Max Greenfield? Well, according to his GQ interview his biggest crush is Lena Dunham, the creator of the new HBO series “Girls,” he puts Jewish stars on his Christmas tree (which he has because his wife isn’t Jewish) and the most important thing: He had an “Saturday Night Live”-themed bar mitzvah.

That’s right. Every bar mitzvah you ever went to probably pales in comparison. According to the interview he gave Jimmy Kimmel last night, each table was a different cast member (it was around 1994) — David Spade, Adam Sandler, Chris Farley, etc. Man, if I had a time machine I would do anything to go back to the mid-’90s as a 13-year old boy and become friends with Max Greenfield.
