Happy Birthday, Zooey Deschanel! Here Are Your Top 5 TV Moments
It's your birthday, it's your birthday: Our favorite "New Girl" shakes her groove thang (Ray Mickshaw/Fox)
'Bones' Doubles the Deschanels
Long before scoring her starring role on "New Girl," Zooey grabbed a guest spot on a Season 5 episode ("The Goop on the Girl") of a little show called "Bones" -- starring her older sister, Emily Deschanel, as Dr. Temperance Brennan. Zooey played Margaret Whitesell, Brennan's similarly antisocial second cousin who has an annoying penchant for quoting Benjamin Franklin. When Booth (David Boreanaz) asks if she and Margaret are sisters, Brennan snaps, "There's no resemblance."
Be Afraid, Be Very Afraid
There's no question that "New Girl's" "Wedding" episode is priceless. And the best scene has to be the one in which Jess scares off blond and beautiful Brooke (Katie Cassidy) -- the girl Schmidt (Max Greenfield) has wanted to bed since his chubby college days. Nothing is more frightening than a potentially unstable girl cutting off her underwear/bike shorts with a knife in a women's restroom... unless you know her. That's Jess!
The Fabric of Our Lives
Singing her way through a series of charming cotton commercials, Zooey -- one half of the indie duo She & Him -- makes us want to listen to the brand's theme song on repeat. Can you say that about polyester?
