Schmidt is the roommate of 4D in the TV show New Girl. He has OCD and loves to decorate, cook, and clean so that way it is done to his standards. He is very narcissistic about his appearance and keeps a binder of photos with him modeling his own suits and also a variety of hair products. He was an overweight child and in college. He then lost the weight, but the experience of being an overweight child is still emotionally jarring for him. He does make some references to his Jewish heritage and likes to bring up to fact that he is a Sagittarius when he talks about his personality.
