AP: As a producer on the show, do you get a say in what happens between Jess and Nick, who coupled up this season?
Deschanel: I do to some degree. My production role is more of an on-set role and keeping a lot of stuff going, helping the ship run... So I'll make suggestions, but I can't be in the writers' room because I'm on set all the time. I knew sort of where I wanted it to head and it did. This is obviously a relationship people are really invested in. And when they got us together last year, I knew that they had to break up. But I knew that once we got them together, you need to pay your dues and have them together long enough that for evermore it will be the ghost that haunts these people. I think that makes for a really interesting fourth season and I'm really excited to get into that, because I think now is where it gets interesting.
AP: Now you're working on a film called "Rock the Kasbah." What can you share about it?
Deschanel: It's a movie with Bill Murray and Bruce Willis that Barry Levinson is directing. It's about a failing music manager who goes to Afghanistan and discovers a young talent, and she goes onto be on 'Afghan Idol,' which is like 'American Idol,' and I play like a fun character role in the beginning.
AP: Between acting and music, plus your website HelloGiggles and now this fashion line, do you ever run out of creative juice?
Deschanel: That's just how I keep going. I really never stop. It's just if I'm getting tired in one creative outlet, I switch to another. With the website HelloGiggles, I co-founded it three years ago and it's doing so well. It's really fun and now I'm really involved in the business side of that. I've always had this theory and I stick by it and it kind of just works: If I like it, other people will like it. And it's totally true!
