Rule 5 Saturday - Channeling the Deschanels

Today is a first for one of my Rule 5 post, sisters, Emily and Zooey Deschanel. Both native to the home ground, Los Angeles, Emily is the elder sis, born in 1976, while little sis Zooey was born in 1980.  Their father, Caleb, is a director, while their mother, Mary Jo, is an actress, so it appears that they are staying in the family business.

In addition to acting, Zooey has a musical bent, with singing and songwriting to her credit.

She been acting since 1998, and has racked up an impressive list of film and TV appearances. As a musician, she has written, recorded and performed quite a variety of pieces, including some with former husband, Ben Gibbard, lead vocalist for The Postal Service and Death Cab for Cutie.  They divorced in late 2011.
Emily, of course, is best known for her long running role as Dr. Temperance Brennan, the forensic skeleton expert on "Bones", although she has been acting since 1994 in both film and TV.

As a scientist, I should resent the way she perpetuates the all the worst stereotypes of scientists (unemotional, uncomprehending of other people's feelings, obsessive personality, etc) but I can't just because she's so darn cute...

More Deschanel Rule 5 below the jump.

Ted has Jennifer Garner as his one year Weekend Woman this week. Wombat-Socho checked in early this week with The Other McCain's Rule 5 list "Exile on Duke Street" and William Teach at Pirate's Cove lists it among the Rule 5 posts on his "Sorta Blogless Sunday and Pinup".  The Classical Liberal linked this in "Hot Legs!"


  1. I think that last one may be Katy Perry ;)

    Kidding, of course.

  2. I've often wondered why the world needs both Katy Perry and Zooey Deschanel; but then I think you can never have too many cute girls.
