NS new girl The actors were like a family during the seven seasons of the show and the actors have fond memories of their time working on the series. Jake Johnson, who played Nick Miller, recalled how “everybody hated him” and Max Greenfield, who played Schmidt. Both the actors also had a little fun sometimes on the sets.
Jake Johnson says the ‘New Girl’ crew got ‘so sick’ of him and Max Greenfield
In the interview in September 2021 us weekly, johnson dined on his own time new girl, sharing that his scenes with Greenfield included a fair amount of improvisation that the show’s crew didn’t always like.
“Nick and Schmidt, That” [scenes] Were great fun,” Johnson said. “I really, really remember doing comedy with Max because we knew the bits so well.”
He continued, “And also our crew was sick of us because we improvised a lot. So doing comedy for a group of people who don’t think you’re funny to me is my favorite. Like, when You’re performing and everyone likes it and is in it, so it’s fun, but it’s even better when there’s a grumpy old man behind the camera who thinks you’re wasting his time Huh. “
The actor said, “It makes everything 10 times funnier. That’s why everyone hated Max and me.”
Johnson explains why he loves TV so much
Johnson also shared some perspectives about working on TV versus filming movies. For him, TV is a more enjoyable experience as he gets to work with the cast on storytelling and character development. There is simply not one opportunity with a film.
“I love television. I will always love it more than movies because I love working with the same people and I like stories that get made up,” Johnson said. “People talk about Nick Miller a lot And what do they like about them? Well, part of it is that we had seven years to develop that character. Characters can change and grow. “
In comparison, he said, “For a film, you have an hour and a half and then they leave.”
Johnson continued, explaining that he “misses working with incredible writers who write really awkward situations.”
TV allows actors to spend extended time together getting to know each other’s talents. “As for why I’m so excited to be back on TV, I love knowing where my costars are really funny,” Johnson said. “And I like him to know where I’m really funny. So he could set me up in a way other people can’t while doing a scene with Max Greenfield.
‘New Girl’ cast keeps in touch
Likewise, Zooey Deschanel’s visuals gave each actor an opportunity to really shine while working collaboratively. “I know where Zooey’s funny and Zooey knows where I’m funny and we can both make each other laugh,” Johnson explained.
He shared that there is a “rhythm” with working on a TV set, but a movie is more “like a first date”. Johnson shared, “I love old relationships because I think it makes work together richer. There’s more depth. It’s more fun.”
“So I miss each other’s knowledge, years of experience and knowing each other’s stuff,” the actor said.
“What a great new girl Those are all relationships. And we were like a family. We fought and we laughed. And now we keep talking to each other because the talk is still alive,” Johnson said.
