New Girl’s Schmidt can’t stop doing impressions of John Travolta

Max Greenfield has clearly been watching too much American Crime Story


If you’ve been watching twisty real-life courtroom drama American Crime Story: The People vs OJ Simpson, then you’ll have encountered the brilliantly bizarre performance by John Travolta as Simpson’s lead attorney Robert Shapiro.


Beetle-browed, lisping and manic, we’ve found the act hard to get out of our minds – and it looks like New Girl’s Max Greenfield has a similar affliction, with the comedy actor admitting he’s taken to doing impressions of the character while filming for his own show.

We know what you’re thinking – Bob Shapiro spin-off prequel starring Greenfield. The script basically writes itself.


American Crime Story: The People vs OJ Simpson continues next Monday 14th March on BBC2 at 9.00pm
