Emily and Zooey Deschanel look a lot alike. They have huge, soulful eyes, and both excel at playing eccentric characters that still manage to capture our hearts. Emily co-stars with David Boreanaz in the long-running Fox series "Bones," and Zooey may soon be adding her talents to the Fox evening lineup with a comedy about sexual politics (as yet unnamed) from writer Elizabeth Meriwether. Until her series debuts on the small screen, look for Zooey in "500 Days of Summer," "The Happening," "Failure to Launch" and "Almost Famous."
