Zooey Deschanel called in to “On Air with Ryan Seacrest” to chat about tonight’s episode of New Girl…will things heat up between Jess and Nick?
On Tonight’s Episode of New Girl:
“Angie, who is Nick’s girlfriend, played by Olivia Munn. Then Sam, who’s played by David Walton, who’s Jess’ boyfriend…all go to a cabin together and it’s kind of a disaster,” Zooey explains. “Jess is trying to control the situation and have everyone play games, but Nick and Angie want to go wild and shoot guns. Then Jess in an attempt to fit in ends up shooting a transformer and shuts off all the power to the cabin. Then they’re stuck in a cold cabin, all of them together…and things happen.”
On Being Part of New Girl:
“I’m just so grateful. I signed on to the show because I really believed in the material and I loved the character. I really love the people I’m working with, so I feel like I really lucked out. I love our writers.”
On Her Emmy Fashion Nightmare:
On the Red Carpet at the Emmys, Zooey’s fluffy dress got hooked to Lucy Liu’s metal dress and she had to bend down to try and unhook them. “I thought I was being really stealthy. I thought I was off camera. That was actually really, really funny,” she says. “I didn’t want her to start walking away and have it tear my dress or drag me.”
