Kristen Bell and Rob Thomas Could Reunite on New Series

Kristen Bell and Rob Thomas, Together Again?

If Rob Thomas is the busiest man in television, then his former Veronica Mars star, Kristen Bell, may be about to be the busiest woman. E! is reporting that Bell is in talks to join one of Thomas' three shows this fall. And here's a hint: It's not 90210 .

Instead, the gossip is that Bell will be offered the role of one of the daughters in Outrageous Fortune, Thomas' remake of a New Zealand series about a family of criminals trying to give up their scheming ways. Rene Russo is reportedly in talks to play the mother, who is inspired to start a legit life when her husband is jailed. In the New Zealand version of the show, the family has two daughters: Pascalle, a wannabe model who spends a lot of time lazing around and waiting to be discovered, and Loretta, a vaguely goth-y teen who spends a lot of time hanging out at the local video store without actually working there. Does either sound like a role for Bell?

I like the idea of seeing the former crime-solver hanging around with a family of criminals, but really, how on earth is Bell going to do it? She's the voice of Gossip Girl, and she's probably also coming back to Heroes, at least for a little while. But hey, if Thomas can have three shows, why not K-Bell?

Veronica Mars being canceled MAY have been the worst thing to happen to television. Ever.

@ juiceejuice: the VMars movie rumors I think were put to rest a while ago (so sad) but there are still talks of a comic book series to finish it off. I'm keeping my fingers crossed!
