First time Emmy nominee Max Greenfield is one busy boy. Besides spinning fire sticks in the upcoming second season premiere of Fox's New Girl, he wrote, directed and starred in Axe body spray's new six-episode web series, Finding Susan Glenn (viewable on the Axe YouTube and Facebook pages). The unattainable dream girl Susan will be revealed in the final episode, which is Greenfield's favorite. "I find her and talk to her, but I won't tell you what happens," he says.
As if that weren't enough, Greenfield also shot a Twilight parody for the "Lights, Camera, Assassination" episode of Adult Swim's NTSF:SD:SUV::, which airs Thursday, Aug. 30 (12:15am/11:15pm c). In this first look at a mock movie poster, Greenfield does his best R-Pats alongside Caity Lotz, who played the daughter of Don Draper's L.A.-based wife on Mad Men. "I'm playing a Robert Pattinson type," confirms Greenfield. "I'm a teen heartthrob who might have an accent...or two...or three. The accent isn't really from anywhere. Shooting it was really fun. I play a sexy Frankenstein."
NTSF:SD:SUV:: creator Paul Scheer, who also stars in the series with Rebecca Romijn, Rob Riggle, and Kate Mulgrew, says, "We're huge fans of action movies and this season we definitely paid homage to some classics." Some of Scheer's favorites from this season include spoofs of Beverly Hills Cop (with guests Aubrey Plaza and Ray Liotta), Mission Impossible 4 (with Ellie Kemper and El Helms,), China Town (with Bob Odenkirk), 21 Jump Street (with The Walking Dead's Steven Yeun), Die Hard 3 (with Diedrich Bader and Alison Brie), Charlie's Angels (with Stacy Keibler) and Point Break (with Alan Tudyk and Jake Johnson). A "Very Special Christmas Episode" sends up Paranormal Activity, and is culled together from 'found' footage and tells the story of an evil Santa.
