Zooey Deschanel, Joseph Gordon-Levitt Sing “What Are You Doing New Year’s Eve?”

Above 500 Days of Summer co-stars Zooey Deschanel and Joseph Gordon-Levitt sing Frank Loesser’s 1947 classic “What Are You Doing New Year’s Eve?”

The actor pals recorded the song in December 2011, when Deschanel wrote, “I’ve 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.”

We just want a New Year’s kiss from JGL—is that too much to ask for?

Below, an earlier version of the song by Ella Fitzgerald. Happy New Year’s one and all!

    @balehead: A little hungover this morning? I love JGL but I just went straight for Ella. That’s a good way to start the New Year! Happy 2013 from Ft Lauderdale!
