Word of Emily Deschanel’s marriage Saturday to actor-writer David Hornsby gives us an excuse to chart the Deschanel clan.
Emily is the older sister of Zooey Deschanel, who was named for the J.D. Salinger character. Zooey has appeared in Elf, Weeds, Almost Famous, (500) Days of Summer and other TV series and films.
The two are daughters of Hollywood veterans Caleb and Mary Jo Deschanel. Caleb directed the first episode of the TV series Bones, in which Emily stars. His other projects have included episodes of Twin Peaks, in which his wife, Mary Jo, appeared.
Caleb Deschanel has five Oscar nominations for cinematography, for his work on The Passion of the Christ, The Patriot, Fly Away Home, The Natural and The Right Stuff.
Emily’s new husband is known for his role on It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia.
Zooey’s spouse, Ben Gibbard, is the lead singer of Death Cab for Cutie and The Postal Service.
