Although "Magic City" doesn't premiere until April 6, you can watch the series debut in its entirety online now.
Set in picturesque Miami Beach circa 1959, Starz's new period series follows the glamorous and turbulent age where Fidel Castro's rebels have just taken control of Havana. "Magic City" stars Jeffrey Dean Morgan as Ike Evans, a family man who made a deal with mob boss Ben "The Butcher" Diamond (Danny Huston) in order to finance his dream of building an opulent hotel, the Miramar Playa.

As the city's most lavish hotel, the Miramar Playa attracts legendary entertainers, seedy mobsters, politicians, and even the CIA. But being the place to be has its price. With all these figures holding court at the hotel, things begin to spiral out of Ike's control. Will he be able to keep his business and family from collapsing? Olga Kurylenko ("Quantum of Solace") plays Ike's former showgirl wife, Vera.

Zooey Deschanel struck small-screen gold when she landed the role of Jessica Day on Fox's new hit comedy "New Girl." The raven-haired beauty (born January 17, 1980) is so perfect for the "adorkable" role, we simply can't picture anyone else stepping into Jess's brightly colored ballet flats. That said, Zooey has brought her special brand of quirkiness to several other TV series and commercials, and what better time to look back on five of her most amazing small-screen moments than her 32nd birthday?
