Also in the most recent list of actresses allegedly seen by Spheeris was Zooey Deschanel, the pint-sized, singing actress who for some reason has all even slightly geeky boys eating out of the palm of her hand. Well, boys, it's possibly time to rejoice: The UK's Popbitch (an email newsletter) claims that Deschanel has officially won the part. Whether it's true or not remains to be seen -- it is a fact, however, that she's currently playing Liza Minnielli in Simply Halston, which in and of itself is pretty awesome. I just may be warming up to this Zooey character.
