It's Jess (Zooey Deschanel) — on SNL!

New Girl star Zooey Deschanel is lined up to host Saturday Night Live on February 11, 2012, one week after Channing Tatum takes the reigns. It will be her first time in the hosting hot seat, and if her skits are anything like her hit FOX comedy, it's going to be one episode of SNL you won't want to miss. Expect hilarity and quirkiness.

Lots and lots of quirkiness.
