New guy! New Girl star Zooey Deschanel is having no trouble moving on from boyfriend of two years Jamie Linden. The actress, 34, was photographed passionately kissing her new rumored beau Jacob Pechenik on Saturday, Aug. 23 while going for a hike in Los Angeles. 

News of the FOX sitcom star's split from Linden came earlier this month after several weeks of getting cozy with Pechenik, a film producer. The pair looked smitten during Saturday's hike, later brunching at Sweetsalt Food Shop in Toluca Lake before heading home.

Deschanel divorced ex-husband Ben Gibbard, the lead vocalist of Death Cab for Cutie, in 2012, and shortly after began dating Linden, a screenwriter. 

The former Emmy nominee is schedule to attend the award show on Monday, Aug. 25. Perhaps Pechenik will be on her arm?
