Brooklyn Decker on her next film role and love for TV on CBS News

Posted by clau with No Comments

 

Brooklyn Decker attends The world’s largest shave & kiss event with Gillette at the Time Warner Center on Feb. 14, 2013, in New York.
The 25-year-old actress was in New York away from her sweetheart, Andy Roddick, to work a “Shave and Kiss” event for Gillette. Guys made sure they had a clean shave before puckering up in hopes of breaking the world record for the most kisses in one minute by a couple.

“It’s one of the funnier things that I’ve ever seen because I think the record is 258 kisses in a minute. So if you think about that, it’s four kisses a second so these people are grabbing each other’s faces and basically banging their heads against one another,” Decker told CBSNews.com. “At least they’re doing it clean-shaven and they’re not giving their girlfriends beard-burn, but it’s pretty funny to watch.”

After the shaving lesson and kissing contest, Decker, who graced the 2010 cover of Sports Illustrated, spent some quality time with friends in New York on Thursday night.

“I’ve never really been a big celebrator of it [Valentine’s Day]. I’m usually with my girlfriends,” she said, adding, “This is around the time that Sports Illustrated comes out, so I’ve always been with the girls of the magazine since I was 18 years old. But some of my best Valentine’s memories would probably be when you’re a really little kid and you’re in school and you had to make Valentines for everyone in your class. It was the sweetest thing.”

Now Decker has a permanent Valentine. Decker and Roddick, 30, married in April 2009 and because of their busy schedules, Decker says their relationship still feels fresh. “Luckily travel allows me to do that,” she said.

Decker likely has some traveling coming up very soon, as she’s close to nabbing her next film role.

“I especially love comedy, so we have something in the works now that I can’t announce yet, but hopefully soon I can announce a comedy that I have coming up. It will be pretty fun,” she said. “That’s [comedy] definitely something I find I’m most comfortable in.”

Decker showed off her acting skills in 2012’s “What to Expect When You’re Expecting” and “Battleship,” as well as 2011’s “Just Go With It.”

And she recently made a guest appearance on the Fox sitcom, “New Girl,” starring Zooey Deschanel. A big fan of the show (she’s seen every episode), Decker says she jumped at the opportunity.

“The cast was incredible. This is their second season, so they’ve been working together for a little while now,” Decker said. “The chemistry is great. It’s very fraternal. Everyone’s improving with each other and throwing jokes at each other. It was a great familial set.”

After her “New Girl” appearance, Decker, who previously appeared on “Ugly Betty” and “Chuck,” may have caught the television bug.

“TV is something that’s pretty new to me,” she said. “I kind of started in television and then I did mostly movies and I’ve gone back a little bit to television and I really love it.”

It’s been a few years since Decker has done any modeling, as she continues to shift her focus to film and TV.

“I’m doing all acting and I’m just lucky that I’m actually able to work so hopefully, knock on wood, I’ll stay lucky and continue to work on the acting side,” she said.

Brooklyn Decker on New GirlSports Illustrated stunner-turned-on-screen scene-stealer Brooklyn Decker is making her way to New Girl this month — and we have your exclusive first look at the pants-dropping effect she has on the guys.

In the installment airing Tuesday, Jan. 29, Decker guest-stars as a gorgeous bar-goer named Holly who happens to be attracted to sadness.

And that ultimately finds the trio back at home playing a round (or 10) of Strip True American.

Despite appearances, Nick and Schmidt are not down with sharing their pretty new friend à la a ménage à trois. So which gent will get to put their nakedess to the best use? Scroll down for a sneak peek at Decker’s New Girl debut and then hit the comments with your predictions.

Brooklyn Decker will guest star on “New Girl”

Posted by andre with No Comments

After getting their own individual love interests with several big guest stars throughout the season, the guys of New Girl now will have to fight over the same woman.

The Hollywood Reporter has learned that Brooklyn Decker is set to appear on the sophomore season of the Fox comedy, playing a bar patron named Holly who naturally catches the eyes of Nick (Jake Johnson), Schmidt (Max Greenfield) and Winston (Lamorne Morris). Their affections prompt a little rivalry among the men of the loft.

Holly, who has an unusual attraction to heartbreak, makes her appearance in the episode 15, “The Cooler,” which starts production next week.

Decker, a model perhaps best known for her famous cover of the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue, has been acting more and more of late with roles in What to Expect When You’re Expecting and Battleship.

Her TV credits include appearances on Ugly Betty, Chuck and Royal Pains.

Decker is repped by Gersh.
