It has been a while since we had a Zooey Deschanel sighting, so it might be worth mentioning her latest talk show appearance for her Fox comedy New Girl. Since we last saw the actress, her show has plummeted from its rookie hit status to ‘meh, it is not hurting anyone,’ but that argument can be said about a lot of show’s on her network right now so let’s cut her a break and just see what she had to say on Conan. We still like her, right? Continue Reading
Zooey Deschanel just stopped by Late Night with Jimmy Fallon last night where she talked about her Sophomore comedy New Girl. This is the second appearance on the program inside of a year as the previous trip to Rockefeller Center had the actress playing Catchphrase as she prepared to host Saturday Night Live in the spring. This time around, there was no game, only a set of dramatic read-and-turns. Continue Reading
Star of New Girl Zooey Deschanel is not quite finished doing press for the new season of her sophomore comedy. The actress took to Jimmy Kimmel Live last night to promote the series which actually premiered pretty soft last week. While that was easily one of the big ratings surprises out of the month, much of that could be blamed at a one-hour premiere sandwiching a new Fox series. Due to that rare circumstance, many industry watchers predict a rebound; however, the extra round of promotion to one of late night television’s youngest audiences should help.
Topics of conversation for Deschanel’s recent appearance includes her performance in the cold open for the Primetime Emmy’s and a Cosmo quiz she took. She also dished on what goes into preparing a dress for the big event and revealed there are fail safes built in to avoid duplicate wardrobes on the big day. Continue Reading
Zooey Deschanel is doing a little more press for the return of New Girl, so she could be seen on Ellen this morning. Naturally, there was some more to the conversation beyond the hit sitcom as the actress mostly talked about the Primetime Emmy’s over the weekend during which she was caught being unreasonably excited for Louis C.K.’s Emmy win. She also was grabbed in another weird moment on the red carpet involving photographers and Nicole Kidman. Continue Reading
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. Continue Reading
Check out the latest iPhone 4S commercials. They use New Girl star Zooey Deschanel and Samuel L. Jackson to promote the smartphone, but really they are promoting the utilization of Siri. The feature has been a bit controversial as many considered it to be a mere novelty act with no real added benefit beyond screwing around when the device is first purchased. Apple is hedging its bets though in that Siri might provide their product with a unique advantage over rival smartphones, so it is in their best interest to get people using it even if that means teaching the public how it is done.
Zooey Deschanel was on Jimmy Kimmel Live last night to promote New Girl. The show just wrapped its first season, and while this interview discusses the absence of a second season renewal, the show is pretty much a lock for another year as its ratings tower above other live-action comedies on the network. Some networks tend to use pickups strategically to generate press for weaker pickups by pairing them in the same news release. This ultimately results in a bundled article on news blogs that will simultaneously cover renewals for multiple shows. The logic behind it is simple: Get viewers thinking the series’ are in the same class.
This definitely was not expected, but last night’s Saturday Night Live featured an impersonation of the night’s host Zooey Deschanel via a talk show called Bein’ Quirky with Zooey Deschanel. Alongside Deschanel in this sketch were Abby Elliot as Deschanel and Taran Killam as Michael Cera. Deschanel had the role of Mary Kate Olsen while Kristen Wiig busted out her Bjork impression.
Tiran Killam busted out a Piers Morgan impression to tackle the controversy surrounding M.I.A.’s Super Bowl halftime performance. While many cast members had parts in this one, the night’s host, Zooey Deschanel, took the cake by playing an ultra conservative mom upset about the incident. Also, Kristen Wiig’s Madonna impression was pretty decent.
New Girl’s Zooey Deschanel had the gig of hosting this weekend’s Saturday Night Live where she sang a little Valentine’s Day song for her monologue. The actress’ ukulele skills made this one extra special.
Zooey Deschanel was on Jimmy Fallon last night to promote her upcoming gig of hosting Saturday Night Live this weekend. She also talked about her recent viral video and played a game of catchphrase with the talk show host.
