There's been some rumors that Kristen Bell won't be returning for Season Three of NBC's hit series, "Heroes." Superhero Hype! got a chance to talk to Kristen this weekend in Oahu, and it sounded like us she's definitely back as Elle Bishop.
"We're working it all out right now," Bell said. "The strike sort of threw a wrench into everything, but I think we're going back this summer and start airing in the fall."
Great news imo, I loved her in S2, and cant wait to have her back in S3... I hope they dont have her back just to kill her off if her other commitments reduce the time she can spend on the show...
From Oh No They Didnt:
I simply cannot wait to tell you the most jaw-dropping, giddy-good, exclusive news of all:
Kristen Bell is in talks to rejoin forces with her Veronica Mars boss, Rob Thomas!
(I’ll wait while you spontaneously break into a happy hula dance.)
Kristen herself tells me (with a big ol’ Veronica-like, canary-eating grin) that, “yes, there is talk” of her signing onto one of Rob’s new TV series for this fall.
In case you hadn’t heard, Rob is one-upping Josh Schwartz in his plot to take over television (the world?) and helming three fall pilots: the CW’s Beverly Hills, 90210 remake, ABC’s Cupid remake and ABC’s dramedy based on the New Zealand series Outrageous Fortune.
So which series is it?
Reliable insiders confirm that Kristen has been offered a role as one of the daughters on ABC’s Outrageous Fortune remake, and that Rene Russo is very close to signing on as the mother. The series is about a family of criminals, in which the father gets sent to the clinker and the mother decides to set everyone straight.
The question is whether Kristen’s busy shooting schedule can be worked out, given her commitments to upcoming projects, Gossip Girl voice-overs and, of course, NBC’s Heroes, which is hoping to have her back for at least five episodes.
