LOL Video: Regis Wants New Girl's Schmidt Dead

Get More: Video

Perhaps not entirely coincidentally pegged to Michael Strahan replacing him on Live! With Kelly, Regis Philbin has resurfaced in a New Girl-themed Funny or Die video that shows the little guy still has it — and by it, we mean the occasional Eddie Fisher reference at the ready.

The set-up: Reege has boarded, unsolicited, the New Girl writing team for Season 2, and his first order of business is to kill off Max Greenfield’s fan-fave character of Schmidt. Philbin, though, also has other ideas for the show — “even” including storylines for Winston, he proclaims. But mainly, he wants Schmidt snuffed. Pronto.

Press PLAY below to see how the Fox comedy’s cast reacts to the new guy.

  • That is the funniest thing I’ve seen in a while. As a fan of both Reege and New Girl, this video made me quite happy indeed.

    Other than, you know, the whole “killing Schmidt” part.
