Cast Updates: What's up with K-Bell's Elle?

  • 24comments

There's been a lot of hubbub on the Web over the status of Kristen Bell's contract with Heroes. The former Veronica Mars star joined the NBC show last season as the electric Elle after reportedly turning down a role on Lost (which went to the fabulous Rebecca Mader).

But because she hasn't signed on for season three of Heroes, many sites stirred the rumor pot by trumpeting the fact that she isn't yet under contract with the show and could bail on Hayden Panettiere and company.

Bell spoke with TVGuide.com to put any worry to rest.

"I've had an unbelievable experience thus far and they seem to like me and want to keep me onboard, so we're going to keep that ball rolling for as long as we can," said Bell. "I think we fell in love. Just try and separate us!"

Bell's schedule will allow for a return to Heroes as well. She'll be off shooting Disney's When in Rome for the next few months, but will return in plenty of time to shoot season three. So there.

Jamie Lynn Spears (Zoey 101)) is expanding more than just her pregnant belly--she's also plumping up her acting portfolio. The younger sister of Britney Spears will appear as a guest star on the upcoming back-to-high-school comedy Miss Guided and play a troubled teen in the show's second episode, according to People.

Also appearing in that episode will be Ashton Kutcher, who will play a substitute teacher. Kutcher is one of the producers of the comedy.

Over on NBC's Medium, Rosanna Arquette, older sister of star Patricia Arquette, will make a guest appearance on the April 7 episode of the spooky drama, says The Associated Press. The AP says Rosanna will play "a beautiful calculating 'cougar' who enjoys the challenges of bedding younger men."

Now that's scary!
