Zooey Deschanel

The charming Zooey Deschanel has been busy with her Fox comedy series "New Girl," so we haven't seen her on the big screen since the wholly disappointing fantasy comedy Your Highness. However, it sounds like she'll be making at least one film while her series is on spring break as Variety reports she is in talks to star in About Time, a new film from Love Actually and Pirate Radio director Richard Curtis. In addition, Domhnall Gleeson, who you might recognize as Bill Weasley from the Harry Potter franchise, is in talks to take the other lead role in a story combining time travel and romance, and that sounds great. Read on!

The story is said to follow a young man named Tim who who comes from a family of time-travelers. When Tim learns of his unique gift from his father, he uses his newfound abilities to change situations for the better. It sounds like quite the breakthrough role for Gleeson, who is actually the son of actor Brendon Gleeson, another prominent player from the Harry Potter franchise. He's already had bit parts in True Grit and Never Let Me Go, but this will be the actor's first lead role, but will come after his appearance in Dredd. I'm interested in more lower key time travel stories like this, so I can't wait to see how it turns out.

Everything about this sounds fantastic, this is exactly the kind of thing I want to see from Curtis.

She's the ice queen.  Her pussy juice is liquid nitrogen.  It'll make your dick fall off, man.

Meh, I've been living pretty well without her and her "lights on, nobody home" eyes on the big screen thanks.

 The success of New Girl made me so happy. Anything that keeps her from ruining perfectly good movies with her frankly mediocre acting is fine with me.

What the hell, that guy is so ugly. This is ridiculous. To say she is out of his league is an understatement. And she really needs to stop playing someone's girlfriend.
