I am a big fan of Kristen Bell. I followed her from Veronica Mars to Heroes and I want to know if she will be back next season.
—Randy M. Boyer, Starkville, Miss.
As you probably know by now, Bell’s character, the sultry Elle Bishop, is back this fall in the third season of NBC’s Heroes. The 27-year-old actress recently starred as well in the movie Forgetting Sarah Marshall, and you can hear her every week as the narrator on the CW network’s hit series Gossip Girl. Before heading back to Heroes, the Detroit native trekked to Italy to film the comedy When in Rome, in which she plays a romantically unlucky American real estate agent who finds herself overwhelmed with suitors after she tosses a coin into the ancient city’s legendary “fountain of love.”
