A Mystery: Zooey Deschanel Talks About Working With PRINCE!

Zooey Deschanel talked to the AP recently about her fashion line, "New Girl" plus working and recording with the pop icon PRINCE!

The AP talked about Prince guest starring on the show and having a single out together. They asked if her and Prince are best buds.

ZD: He's very mysterious. I couldn't venture to call him my bud. He's too, like, aaaaah (she looks skyward in reverence). He is incredibly nice and so generous and just so talented — a really wonderful person and I feel lucky to know him. It's cool because I make records with (my indie-folk duo) She & Him. We've made four records, but we've never been a pop band. The Prince thing was almost by accident, because (producers) said we'd like it if Jess goes up and sings with Prince, so I did a vocal for the sound department. They sent it to Prince, and the next day they'd mixed that vocal in... and then they released it! It's so exciting.

The mystery so far will be if "FALLININLOVE2NITE" will have a video for it. May 16th is the 30th anniversary of "When Doves Cry" being released as a single. If no video by then, there will be no video...at all.-DocFB

PRINCE is set to star on "New Girl" as himself Feb. 2nd after the Super Bowl on Fox. The first photo of him on the show has been released.

TV Guide was the first one to post the photo.

"He's got a very quiet, wry sense of humor but he kills. There's a moment in the episode where he's sitting in between Zooey and Jake on a bench. And it's a silent beef and he's just looking between them trying to figure them out. And it's hilarious. He has crazy comic instincts."-New Girl Producer Finkel comments.

Don't expect Nick (Jake Johnson) to throw shade to the purple one by interfering in between Jess and Nick on the show.

In fact Nick says in this scene:'It's an honor to give you my girlfriend.'" Ha!-DocFB

Diagnosis: Have we said how much we CANNOT wait to see this episode?????

Zooey Deschanel Talks PRINCE Being On “New Girl” (Updated Episode Info!)

Zooey Deschanel Promo Photo

Zooey Deschanel attended the Golden Globes yesterday and talked about Prince being on the "New Girl" Super Bowl episode, a story DrFunkenberry broke exclusively last month.

Ryan Seacrest interviewed Deschanel about the "breaking news" of Prince being on "New Girl" in a video you can watch here.

"He (Prince) is amazing! I'm so excited about this episode. He plays the role of Prince. (Great question Ryan.) He works really fast. I was really impressed. He was really funny. He put me to shame. He got everything in one or two takes."-Zooey Deschanel on Prince being on "New Girl".

EW had this to add about the episode:

New Girl: In the episode, "Party Time", Jess (Emmy Award and Golden Globe nominee Zooey Deschanel) is ready to paint the town purple when a chance encounter finds her and best friend Cece (Hannah Simone) invited to a once-in-a-lifetime mansion party thrown by music legend Prince, guest-starring as himself. Not wanting to miss out on the fun, Nick (Jake Johnson), Schmidt (Max Greenfield), Winston (Lamorne Morris) and Coach (guest star Damon Wayans, Jr.) are determined to crash the festivities, building toward an unforgettable ending. The episode also will feature special guest cameo appearances.”

Not too much that we haven't told you before but still cool!

We cannot wait for the episode! We expect preview clips starting next week for the show which will air on Feb. 2nd on Fox after the Super Bowl.-DocFB

The one and only PRINCE will be making a rare TV appearance on the Fox hit sitcom "New Girl" that will air on Super Bowl Sunday.

The Super Bowl airs on Fox Feb. 2nd, 2014.

The cast of "New Girl" will be graced by music royalty as Prince will appear on the show playing himself. The premise for the show is to be centered around his notorious star-studded house parties where he performs so you might be seeing even more stars on this show. Will his new band 3RDEYEGIRL be with him?

For the past week, Hollywood Insiders have been buzzing about this news although confidentiality agreements were in place. Even Hannah Simone who plays CeCe on the show had to hint about the "Big Deal Alert" last night and Prince retweeted it this morning via @3RDEYEGIRL

 

A source, speaking on anonymity told DrFunkenberry.com exclusively "Prince actually reached out to the show. He is a big fan and wanted to do it. We were blown away and agreed immediately."

Prince is no stranger to the acting medium, starring in the hit movie "Purple Rain" in which he won an Oscar for "Best Soundtrack".

This is the music legend's First Sitcom Network Television Debut.

Stay tuned here for more info on this exclusive story!-DocFB
