New couple alert!
After her divorce from Death Cab for Cutie frontman, Ben Gibbard, Zooey Deschanel took a love sabbatical.
Now, over a year-and-a-half later, the New Girl has found a new man!
His name: Jamie Linden. He's screenwriter whose credits include 10 Years, Dear John and We Are Marshall — so you know this dude is a romantic!
A source describes Zooey's new beau, saying:
"Jamie's a really nice guy. He's funny, and a little geeky… he's into her!"
Who wouldn't be into a girl with baby blues and mad skills with Siri??
Our source goes on to say that the date did NOT seem like the duo's first:
"The new couple appeared inseparable — holding hands and hooking their arms together — as they chatted with pals, with Deschanel in an especially happy (and dance-y!) mood."
He really DOES sound perfect for the adorkable actress!
We're thrilled to hear Zooey has got her groove back. Hopefully we'll see the couple first hand soon!
