Kristen Bell Continues to Stretch as an Actress

It's good to see that Kristen Bell, since "Veronica Mars" ended its run (relive that pain, folks), has been really diversifying her roles, deftly showing her range. Last year, she starred in the romantic comedy, Forgetting Sarah Marshall. In August, she stars in the romantic comedy When in Rome, and she recently finished filming a romantic-comedy with Vince Vaughn and Jon Favreau, Couples Retreat.

Up next? A romantic comedy. Apparently, Bell is chasing that Meg Ryan dream. Of course, we all know how that ended -- Meg Ryan became the third blowfish.

Bell will star in You Again, which sounds as lightweight and frothy as the other romantic comedies she's starring in, although lacking in any of that modest subversiveness that made Sarah Marshall so winning. In You Again, Bell finds out her brother is marrying the girl who made her high-school years miserable. She then sets out to show her brother his fiancee's true colors.

There are two possible endings to that scenario. If it's the bad formulaic movie I expect, Bell will realize that the fiancee isn't so bad, and they'll become BFFs by the end of the flick. However, if it's a better film than we could possibly hope for, Bell will sabotage her brother's engagement by hooking up with his fiancee. A lot. On bearskin rugs. And in the backseat of Volkswagons.

Andy Fickman, who directed The Game Plan, The Race to Witch Mountain, She's the Man and Who's Your Daddy, is attached to direct You Again, so you can pretty much guarantee the Kristen Bell lesbian version is fairly unlikely.
