Are you there Zooey Deschanel? It's me Boaz.

Back in my 'entertainment journalism' days I used to cover a lot of press junkets. Basically, you wait around in a hotel room for a few hours so that you can talk to an actor for a few minutes. It's a pretty lousy wait to get an interview - for the journalist and the actor.

One of the early junkets I did - about eight years ago - was for the movie Elf. I talked to James Caan, Will Ferrell, and Jon Favreau but I was especially excited about talking to Zooey Deschanel. I guess I had a bit of a crush on her. Excited or not, the interview was a pretty awkward experience. So I think it's time for a re-do:



Zooey - are you reading this? Feel free to get in touch via twitter, email, or pigeon.

  2. She can definitely sing! We'll even let her do cartwheels and juggle monkeys if she wants!
