Kristen Bell to Star in Burlesque With Christina Aguilera

Kristen Bell to Shed Her Squeaky Clean Image For Burlesque

It sounds like Kristen Bell may be growing tired being typecast as an adorably bubbly blonde — she's just signed on to star opposite Christina Aguilera in the musical drama Burlesque.

Bell will star as one of the club's headliners, a "loose cannon" who doesn't exactly welcome Christina Aguilera's character with open arms. Bell did the bad girl thing during her stint on Heroes, but for some reason I just can't see her as a risque pole dancer. Plus, she's supposed to be the big fish that intimidates Aguilera? Seems like it should be the other way around.

What's your take on this casting news? Can you envision Kristen scantily clad singing and dancing side by side with Christina Aguilera, or should she stick to what she knows?

I think she just wanted to try a role outside of what's usually offered to her. I hope this is successful for her - she's such a classy girl.

I'm absolutely on board with this casting decision. I love Kristen, and of course am really excited about Burlesque.My viewing of Kristen's work is limited to Forgetting Sarah Marshall and her FABULOUSLY bitchy voice overs on Gossip Girl, but I can see her nailing this part, and I think everyone on board is going to do such a fun job!I can't wait! :-)

Kristen has a very child-like voice and way of speaking, that I just can't see her as a bad girl
