(500) Days of Summer fans hoping to see Zooey Deschanel and Joseph Gordon-Levitt reunite on-screen should not hold their breath.

When Wetpaint Entertainment asked Zooey if she saw her pal Joe stopping by the New Girl loft, she didn’t give us the answer we were hoping for.

“I don’t know! I hadn’t thought about that,” she admitted during a conference call this afternoon. “I don’t know that he would — he’s kind of like a movie star!”

But that’s not to say that Joe wouldn’t want to spend time with Zo — there just aren’t enough hours in the day between hosting SNL, running hitRECord, tweeting up a storm, and promoting his latest film, Looper.

“I don’t know if he would do it,” she continued, reasoning, “I don’t know if he’d have time!”

But maybe it’s for the best considering Jess has her hands full with potential love interests this season. On the second half-hour of the two-part season premiere, Jess juggles two prospects: a beer delivery guy (The Book of Mormon’s Josh Gad) and a handsome stranger (Bent’s David Walton).

And although Zooey claims that Jess and Nick aren’t ready and will “not be getting together anytime soon,” she claims that the writers “might tease it out” this season. Color us intrigued!

New Girl Season 2 premieres on Tuesday, Sept. 25 at 8 p.m. ET on FOX, and then continues with a bonus episode at 9 p.m. ET.
