‘SNL’ Reprises ‘Bein’ Quirky with Zooey Deschanel’
Zooey Deschanel has made a name for herself being quirky and kitten-cute, so it was only natural for ‘Saturday Night Live‘ to spoof her persona with a now-recurring skit depicting the actress hosting a talk show called ‘Bein’ Quirky With Zooey Deschanel.’
In the second installment, which aired this weekend, the ‘SNL’ version of Zooey was joined by actors playing fellow quirksters Michael Cera and Zooey’s BFF Drew Barrymore, and the “first quirky girl with a TV show,” Fran Drescher.
The bit saw Abby Elliott filling Zooey’s kicky shoes, Taran Killam playing Cera with all his non-offensive charm, ‘Bridesmaids’ star Kristen Wiig doing a spot-on impression of Barrymore, and this week’s ‘SNL’ host Sofia Vergara donning a leopard suit and adopting a loudly annoying laugh as Drescher.
Together, the crew did elementary school art projects, chose baby names, danced and winked, and did pretty much everything cutesy you’d expect on a chat fest hosted by Deschanel — including riding off on a three-seater bike (poor Cera was left behind, but didn’t seem too concerned).
Watch the sketch below.
