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?

If she gets a role for the show I think her character in the show will die.

I hope not, I cannot stand that actress and I LOVE Lost. Why they would be her in Lost is lost on me...

I love Lost. Not familiar with Kristen Bell. The character of Charlotte they described sounds like Kellie Pickler. She needs her own reality show, though.

I already miss Veronica Mars and Kristen Bell, so I think I'd start watching Lost even though I swore off of it after getting burned so much by JJ and the writers on Alias.

I'm a huge LOST fan. If this role is going to be anything similar to that of Nikki and Paolo's, I'm going to be very upset.

I gave up on LOST. ABC pissed me off one too many times, screwing with the schedule.

When I read the headline I let out the biggest gasp I've ever let out! Lost + Veronica Mars!?! I'm praying this turns out to be true, otherwise Ausiello will be getting hatemail filled with glitter. He can't just tease us like that!!

LOST is the greatest show ever! I think It'd be great if she joined the cast. She looks exactly like my best friend so I'd certainly be ok w/ it!

I love Kristen Bell and I am going to miss Veronica Mars desperately. Why do they keep crappy shows on like Beauty and the Geek(sorry to anyone who likes it) or Pussycat doll crap and ditch really good shows?

Kristen Bell was really good on Veronica Mars, i think she might be okay on Lost. It's be interesting to see her there and how she would act out the character.
