Could Kristen Bell be joining "Lost"?

Could Kristen Bell be joining "Lost"?

As wild Internet rumors go, this one's pretty interesting: TV Guide's Michael Ausiello reported this week that Kristen Bell has been brought up in the casting discussions for a new character being introduced for the fourth season of "Lost."

I'm not sure I buy it, especially because Ausiello just says her "name has been brought up," and that's a long way from saying that Bell's negotiating a contract — or even that she's officially being considered for the role. But it's a fun thing to think about, even if was recently debunked.

Maybe the more interesting thing is the role that Bell's supposedly up for. If you're super-sensitive to spoilers about potential new characters, you might want to stop here; otherwise,

There are two casting notices out for recurring characters in the upcoming season. They are:

  • Russell, a mathematician in his late 30s who is "capable of great insights and has a tremendous knowledge across various scientific fields." He tends to be overly direct, screwing up his personal relationships as a result.
  • Charlotte, a hot 20something who is "precocious, loquacious and funny... a very successful academic who also knows how to handle herself in the real world." She also has trouble relating to people because of "lots of repressed and pent-up emotions."

How do you think these two fit into the show's bigger story? And would you want to see Bell on the show?
