Zen (Steve Zahn)
Zen, yes like the Buddhism, is Debbie’s gardener, or man who lives in the garden, depending on how you look at it. Zen tends to Debbie’s plants, claiming he’s independently wealthy from a tech buyout, and he lives nearby. He’s always crooning tunes on his acoustic guitar, and he has the hots for Debbie, but he doesn’t stand a chance with her. He also surfs.
