(Newser) – British funnyman Russell Brand is apparently bouncing from one blue-eyed cutie brunette to another. Brand has "had his eye" on New Girl star Zooey Deschanel "for a long time," an insider tells OK! "And he's been sending funny, flirty texts to see if they can get together. He thinks she's hysterically funny and cute, too. There's a real spark there."

The actress, recently split from Death Cab for Cutie frontman Ben Gibbard, is reportedly "intrigued." But she's aware of her more-than-passing resemblance to Brand's ex, Katy Perry. In fact, she's "very aware that she looks strikingly similar to Katy and has been mistaken for Katy by fans." (Read more Russell Brand stories.)
