Zooey Deschanel and Joseph Gordon-Levitt, who co-starred in the excellent 2009 film “(500) Days of Summer,” have reunited to prepare a festive holiday treat for their fans.
The actors, who have been friends since they made the 2001 movie “Manic” together, have released online a video of them performing Oscar-winning composer Frank Loesser’s 1947 jazz standard “What Are You Doing New Year’s Eve?” Deschanel, half of the duo She & Him, plays ukulele and sings, while Gordon-Levitt plays acoustic guitar and croons in their holiday duet.
The two actors don’t reveal their New Year’s Eve plans in the clip, but they will be celebrating together in 2012. Both are nominated for Golden Globe Awards: she for actress in a TV comedy for the new hit “New Girl,” and he for his lead role in the film “50/50.”
The YouTube video of their performance has already earned 3.7 million hits.
