Kristen Bell, star of the now canceled Veronica Mars, has been signed to play a part in NBC’s Heroes this fall.
Bell will make her first “Heroes” appearance in October. She’ll play Elle, a character described as 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.
I never watched Mars, but apparently everyone raves at Bell’s acting chops. All I can say is with all the new actors joining the cast, this is going to be one exciting year for the sophomore show.
