Zooey Deschanel has a lot of street cred right now. Last year, her comedy New Girl premiered on Fox–a network not known for its live-action sitcoms–and it quickly became one of the broadcaster’s top rated shows. On top of that, people genuinely seem to like her certain brand of weirdness, so it is more than worth a quick look at her latest appearance on The Tonight Show. The interview included a lot of discussion about rejection and the revelation that Paul McCartney watches DVD extras. Who knew? Also on topic was Zooey Deschanel’s recent guest spot on The Simpsons and Zooey Deschanel’s Emmy nomination.
New Girl premieres its second season on Tuesday, September 25; Deschanel’s Simpsons appearance will air on Sunday, September 30; and the Primetime Emmy Awards broadcast live this weekend on ABC.
