New Girl Exclusive: Rob Riggle Cast as Schmidt?!
Is New Girl big enough for two Schmidts?
That compelling question will be answered later this fall when actor-comedian Rob Riggle guest stars on the Fox hit as Schmidt’s (Max Greenfield) competitive cousin and rival — who also happens to be named Schmidt!
The former Daily Show correspondent, who currently stars in the procedural-spoofing Adult Swim comedy NTSF:SD:SUV:: and also memorably played a smarmy P.E. teacher in the box office smash 21 Jump Street (co-starring New Girl‘s Jake Johnson), will turn up in a Thanksgiving themed episode airing in November.
Riggle was recently tapped to join Fox’s NFL Sunday pre-game coverage.
