In Other News, Giacomo Bonaventura is Nick Miller from 'New Girl'

Jack Bonaventura probably doesn't drink Midori sours, though.

The next time Nick Miller is looking for a way to pay his rent, he can just trade places with Giacomo Bonaventura for a match.

Way back while watching Milan fall to Inter in the Derby Della Madonnina, our manager, made an incredible observation. Giacomo Bonaventura always looked like someone else, and it was hard to place. She finally figured it out.

That is Nick Miller, one of the main characters on Fox's hit sitcom "New Girl." Nick, one of the main character's roommates and love interests, is a strange, enthusiastic guy living paycheck to paycheck. When he doesn't agree with something, he always has a weird look on his face. Bonaventura always has that same look on his face.

Seriously, is that Nick or Jack?

It would really be amazing to put Bonaventura next to Jake Johnson, the actor who plays Miller and appears in films such as "21 Jump Street" and "Jurassic World," just so the world can see the two of them side by side. If not, could Bonaventura at least act out this hilarious scene with one of his teammates, with maybe Alessio Romagnoli or Mattia De Sciglio playing his best friend, Schmidt? It would be great to hear Bonaventura shout, "Who drinks Midori sours?" in Italian.
