Jake Johnson On 'New Girl' Star Zooey Deschanel

Posted: Updated:

Who's that girl? It's the no-nonsense Zooey Deschanel.

Cutesy adorkability may come off as her thing, but Jake Johnson -- who plays Deschanel's co-star Nick on "New Girl" -- told Cosmopolitan magazine that she can be all work.

"Zooey doesn't f--- around," Johnson said. "She's a great business person. For some reason it's never talked about. They talk about how she's quirky and sweet, and all that is true ... [but] she's the lead in a show she partially owns. I watch and learn a lot from her."

The second season of "New Girl" which premieres on Tues., Sept. 25 at 9 p.m. ET on Fox will see the return of Nick and Jess (Deschanel) as roommates ... and possibly more.

"I think it'd be fun if they got together, see what happens," Johnson revealed at a Fox Event. "But if they don't, that'll be fun too. I'm excited to see what the writers come up with."

Catch "New Girl" on Tues., Sept. 25 at 9 p.m. ET on Fox.
