Unfortunately, Zooey Deschanel's first SNL outing got trampled under the stampede of Whitney Houston news, but the show did feature some funny sketches (as well as a Nicolas Cage cameo), including a talk show devoted to those celebrities most revered for their occasionally endearing but usually irritating facial tics, "Bein' Quirky With Zooey Deschanel." Watch as the quirky crew comprised of Mary-Kate Olsen, Zooey Deschanel, Bjork, and Michael Cera speak to each other in hurried, averted-eye sentences about octopus sweaters and pay homage to the quirky-girl patron goddess, Mayim Bialik.
I'm watching it right now...and this musical guest is really people auditioning for the fall cast, right? I mean, this can't actually be a band signed to a major label and having an album come out this year, right? This has to be a sketch...I keep expecting the dude with the sunglasses on to take them off and it'll be Elijah Wood.
