It all started with Max Greenfield’s (aka Schmidt from New Girl) silly tweet: “Here's a pic of Schmidt and Nick from tonight's all new ep of @NewGirlonFOX,” Max tweeted — but the accompanying picture was not of he and co-star Jake Johnson. It was of Paul and Ian! In the pic, the TVD stars are all smiles with their arms around one another.
Paul hilariously tweeted back: “This must be some sort of misunderstanding. This is actually a photo of me and my girlfriend Ian Somerhalder.” So much for those rumors that Nina and Ian are hooking up again. Looks like Ian is already taken!
Max, making a serious bids for our hearts, tweeted back: “Nice try Paul. You wish. That's definitely Nick and Schmidt from New Girl. #alsoihopeyouregood.” So, it seems Max is sticking to his story. You gotta admire his commitment. Also admirable: Max’s hilariously sweet hashtag. Are these two television besties? If not, they should be.
Do you think Ian and Paul look anything like Max and Jake? Sound off in the comments below!
