Zooey Deschanel Up for TIME 100
Zooey Deschanel has been on the scene for years - whether appearing as a Band Aid in 2000's Almost Famous or singing with M. Ward as folky duo She & Him - but she really hit the jackpot with a quirky fun comedy series on FOX.
New Girl is one of the best new shows on television and added much to Tuesday nights with its Glee lead-in.
After a great 2011, 2012 is still looking up for Zooey.
She is up for the TIME 100, which takes note of influential people from across the globe in all veins and genres.
Whether it's her voice, her style, her bangs, or her sweetly quirky character Jess, Zooey Deschanel has no doubt influenced a generation of girls who want to be proud to be themselves.
Voting goes until April 6th, and the complete list will be available on TIME.com on April 17th.
Be sure to vote for everyone's favorite 'new girl'.
