(If you want an example of a “quirky” short, check out “Havin’ a Summah” with Howard Kremer, aka Dragon Boy Suede.) Now she can add the movie “Your Highness” to her body of work, and since it is from the same people that brought you “Eastbound and Down,” I think it will be another notch in her quirky belt.So, let’s take a look at the top five movies that make up the filmography of a quirky screen beauty.Death Cab for Cutie: The Billboard Shoot"I'm not going to change the way I've always written for fear of people correctly or incorrectly assigning a name and face to these songs," says Gibbard, sitting in Atlantic's Manhattan offices, still wearing a brace on the wrist he broke while running a 50K race in February."I've always written about my life and the lives of people around me, and how everything intersects."Listen to Death Cab for Cutie's New Song 'The Ghosts of Beverly Drive'The son of a Navy officer, Gibbard moved around a lot as a kid, but grew up primarily in Bremerton, Wash., where he fell hard for punk and indie rock.He started Death Cab, a solo project that expanded into a quartet, in 1997 while studying engineering at Western Washington University.After signing with Barsuk and releasing a string of acclaimed albums, the foursome rose to bigger fame around 2003, when the character Seth Cohen on Fox's era-defining teen soap started giving the band weekly props -- Death Cab even appeared in a second-season episode.(Atlantic); the record is Death Cab's first since 2011 -- which also makes it the first since the 38-year-old singer-guitarist finalized his divorce from actress Zooey Deschanel in 2012.Gibbard's three-year marriage to the star, 35, made him an unlikely celebrity, that rare musician who turns up on both Pitchfork and TMZ.
On Sunday the couple stepped out together for the first time at a Hollywood afterparty for Channing Tatum and Matthew Mc Conaughey's new movie "Magic Mike." In October, the "New Girl" star split from Death Cab For Cutie singer Ben Gibbard, and she filed for divorce in December, citing "irreconcilable differences" for ending her two-year marriage. "Earlier this year Deschanel admitted she wasn't ready to date yet.As so many moms know, it can be hard saying goodbye to your youngest family member before a full day on set."When you're holding your baby, you're like, 'I don't wanna go to work—this is like the best thing ever,'" the actress told E! "But it's nice, you know, I think, having a little girl, she knows her mommy works and I think that's a good thing."Back in August 2015, E!News confirmed that Zooey not only gave birth to her first child. And while the couple has tried to keep family life private, sometimes a mom can't help but gush.According to Deadline, Long has signed on for a three episode arc beginning with episode six of the series."The 20th TV-produced series centers on Jess (Deschanel), an offbeat and adorable girl in her late 20s who, after a bad breakup, moves in with three single guys. Long will play Paul, a music teacher and Jess’ love interest." Well, if they couldn't get Joseph Gordon-Levitt then I guess Long will just have to do, but that's my well-known opinion of the matter.
