ZOOEY DESCHANEL (Miss Edmunds) is one of Hollywood's most sought-after young actresses. Most recently, she displayed her charismatic screen presence in the comedy "Failure to Launch” with Matthew McConaughey and Sarah Jessica Parker; in the sci-fi classic "The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy,” with Sam Rockwell, Mos Def and John Malkovich; and opposite Will Ferrell in "Elf,” directed by Jon Favreau, for which she received critical acclaim for her engaging performance and remarkable singing voice.

Deschanel made her feature-film debut in 1999 in Lawrence Kasdan's ensemble drama "Mumford.” She then co-starred with Billy Crudup, Kate Hudson and Frances McDormand in Cameron Crowe's "Almost Famous.” Other films include: "All the Real Girls,” for which she received an Independent Spirit Award nomination for Lead Actress, "Abandon” for director Stephen Gaghan, "Big Trouble” for director Barry Sonnenfeld, "The Good Girl” with Jennifer Aniston and "Eulogy,” alongside Debra Winger.

Deschanel will soon be seen in "Winter Passing,” in which she stars with Ed Harris and Will Ferrell. Also upcoming are "Live Free or Die,” "Flakes” with Aaron Stanford for director Michael Lehmann, and "The Assassination of Jesse James,” opposite Brad Pitt and Casey Affleck. She also voices a surfing penguin in the animated movie "Surf's Up.”

The actress recently completed a stint on Showtime's acclaimed comedy series "Weeds” as Justin Kirk's Alaskan girlfriend and has also guest-starred on television's "Frasier” and "Veronica's Closet.” On stage, she performed the role of Little Red Riding Hood in Interact Theatre Company's production of Stephen Sondheim's "Into the Woods.”

Deschanel, who was named for the male character in J. D. Salinger's Franny and Zooey, spent much of her childhood on location with her actress mother, Mary Jo, and her father, Caleb, an Academy Award®-nominated cinematographer. She credits her father with instilling in her a keen visual sense and great style.
