Kristen Bell Joins Cast of HEROES

A girl leaves her computer for a few hours and some major MAJOR casting scoop is unloaded.  I can’t believe I’m typing this, but it has been confirmed that Kristin Bell is joining the cast of HEROES.

According to Variety, the former star of VERONICA MARS will be joining the show for a multi-episode arc playing Elle “a sexy, mysterious young lady who has ties to the supposed death of Peter, H.R.G.’s past and the future of Claire. Elle will kick off her arc by committing a serious crime, though it’s unclear whether she’s good or bad.”

Kristen Bell has been in hot demand since it was announced that Veronica Mars wasn’t picked up by The CW.  Most recently Bell was courted the the producers of LOST, but she turned down the offer saying citing she didn’t want to move to Hawaii, where the show is filmed.

So just how did NBC snag Ms. Bell? “This was not easy to pull off,” said “Heroes” creator-exec producer Tim Kring. “But since we’re an ensemble show, with many arcs playing out through the year, we found a way to jump into a small window in (Bell’s) schedule.”

Like I wasn’t already super excited about the second season of HEREOS…this news is just out of control.

    Holy crap indeed.

    Can’t believe this.

    I don’t watch Heroes (it’s just a clone of Lost) so I’m just in shock over this…

    WHOA. This is awesome. I’m now excited about S2 of Heroes. oooh i hope she’s a villain.

    Meanwhile, the rest of the cast should bring their A game to work b/c once people see her on the screen there should be character deaths all over the place.

    Now this is just crazy! So awesome!

    Which other ´teenie´-star ever had the opportunity to blow off a great role on a huge show just to play a part in another huge, huge show?

    Wow, Heroes season 2 is sure going to have a gigantic cast. Hopefully, we don’t have so many different storylines that an individual episode can only progress each story a little bit (a few episodes felt that way last season).
