New Girl‘s Max Greenfield is not just an actor. Some might say he’s more of an “artist.” At least that’s what a fan told him during a trip to Mexico, where is is better known as “The Schmidt.”

When Greenfield stopped by our offices, we asked him all about that airport encounter and how he chose the perfect first home with the help of Trulia—Schmidt might be okay living in an LA loft with a few quirky roommates, but Greenfield was looking for something a little different. For our First and Worst video series, he tells EW just how “zen” he really is and like his character, is kind of a neat freak.
