Before becoming a tenant of New Girl‘s loft, Max Greenfield was a resident of Stars Hollow, making a very brief appearance on the WB’s beloved Gilmore Girls. Greenfield has a blink-and-you’ll-miss-it role as a drunk patron of Luke’s Diner, alongside series regular Jared Padalecki. Of course, the size of the role hasn’t stopped Gilmore fans from noticing — or from reminding Greenfield of it on social media.

“I wonder where that character’s going after this diner scene. It feels like he’s gonna lose a fight in the street,” he adds.
