Zooey Deschanel & Joseph Gordon-Levitt Sing New Year's Duet: [ send to a friend ]
Zooey Deschanel and Joseph Gordon-Levitt aren't just good friends who can both act, they can sing too.
"I have known Joseph Gordon-Levitt for going on 12 years," Deschanel writes as she shares the home-made production in which she plays ukulele and he plays guitar.
"We first met in the summer of 2000 while doing a tiny movie called Manic, where we bonded over a mutual appreciation for Harry Nilsson and Nina Simone and I have been lucky enough to call him one of my dearest friends ever since."
"When we did 500 Days of Summer 8 years later, we spent every lunch hour dancing to Marvin Gaye in the hair and make up trailer; we had loads of fun. I hope to do a thousand more movies with him because he's simply the best."
"But in the meantime, we made a little New Year's duet for all of you!"
The original is a classic 1947 jazz tune sung by Nancy Wilson.
