Zooey Deschanel is showing off her musical side in a seasonal duet with her former co-star and current pal Joseph Gordon-Levitt.
The 31-year-old actress and JGL croon together on a rendition of Nancy Wilson's, "What Are You Doing New Year's Eve?"
In a post accompanying the clip, Zooey explains that she's actually known Levitt, 30, for years.
"We first met in the summer of 2000 while doing a tiny movie called 'Manic'...and I have been lucky enough to call him one of my dearest friends ever since," Deschanel says of Levitt, who was also her "(500) Days of Summer" co-star. "I hope to do a thousand more movies with him because he’s simply the best."
But for now, they present to you their New Year's duet. Deschanel's Fox comedy "New Girl" returns on her birthday, January 17.
