Zooey Deschanel has signed with CAA, The Hollywood Reporter has exclusively learned. She was previously with UTA.
She is coming off the seven-season run of Fox's New Girl, where she won a Critics Choice award and earned Emmy and Golden Globe nominations for her role as the title girl. In film, she also has starred in All the Real Girls and The Good Girl, as well as non-Girl features including Almost Famous, Yes Man, Elfand Trolls.
