If indie darling Zooey Deschanel has somehow escaped your notice, you’re about to be introduced to her in a big way. We love her upcoming FOX comedy, “The New Girl,” in which she plays an emotionally distraught woman who moves in with a group of guys after a messy break-up. Just trust us; it’s excellent. Any show with a douche jar is awesome in our book. (You’ll understand later.)
We’re also looking forward to her appearance on the new season of “Red Band Trailer,” screenwriter Diablo Cody’s internet talk show, “the world’s first talk show conducted inside an actual trailer.” If you’re not familiar, you should be. “We had @therealzooeyd in the RED BAND TRAILER yesterday. Cute as heck, super fun. Can’t wait to cut the episode,” Cody tweeted on Friday.
Finally, if you just can’t get enough of Zooey, get yourself on over to hellogiggles.com. Zooey and her friends Sophia Rossi and Molly McAleer created the entertainment site for “smart, independent, and creative females” — and it totally makes us feel smarter, more independent, and more creative! We particularly love the illustrated tweet of the day and the Open Letters section, helmed by occasional Zap2it contributor Annie Stamell.
