Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Zooey Deschanel Sing a New Year’s Ditty

“500 Days of Summer” co-stars (and real life close friends) Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Zooey Deschanel have come together to share their love of classic music with their fans with a heartfelt cover of Nancy Wilson’s “What Are You Doing New Year’s Eve”.

Deschanel posted the video on her website, HelloGiggles.com and left a little introduction.

“"I have known Joe Gordon-Levitt for going on 12 years. We first met in the summer of 2000 while doing a tiny movie called Manic, where we bonded over a mutual appreciation for Harry Nilsson and Nina Simone and I have been lucky enough to call him one of my dearest friends ever since. When we did 500 Days of Summer 8 years later, we spent every lunch hour dancing to Marvin Gaye in the hair and make up trailer; we had loads of fun. I hope to do a thousand more movies with him because he's simply the best. But in the meantime, we made a little New Year's duet for all of you! The original by Nancy Wilson. ENJOY! Don't forget to check out Joe's website http://hitrecord.org/,” she wrote.

Watch the little ditty below, and don’t forget to check out Deschanel’s “New Girl” on January 17th and Gordon-Levitt in next year’s “The Dark Knight Rises” and “Lincoln”.
