Kristen Bell and Craig Ferguson Slide at the Palace of Versailles (VIDEO)

Kristen Bell, 'The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson'Craig Ferguson and Kristen Bell got to tour the Palace of Versaille during 'The Late Late Show' (Weeknights, 12:37AM ET on CBS) week-long visit to Paris, France. They discovered things both fun and disgusting.

One of the curators of the palace talked to them about a position that used to exist where a member of the nobility would have the "privilege" of taking the paper for the king to the loo. Or, as Bell put it, "They wiped his butt."

Later, Ferguson asked the curator if he'd come into one of the larger rooms, ran and slid across the room. We then cut to Ferguson and Bell doing just that, and we admit it looked like a great deal of fun. We don't recommend necessarily doing that if you should go there, or in any other landmarks like that ... unless you're "the king" as Ferguson was told he was.

Eddie Izzard Would Have Made Humans Vegetarians If He Was God (VIDEO)

Eddie Izzard & Kristen Bell, 'The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson'Eddie Izzard got into a deep discussion with Kristen Bell and Craig Feguson in the streets of Paris on 'The Late Late Show' (Weeknights, 12:37AM ET on CBS). He presented a notion of how different the world might be had God made people vegetarians, rather than carnivores.

"No one would actually know about killing at all except when your granddad died," he extrapolated, making an interesting case about how vegetarianism from the beginning might have impacted murder and crime.

"If you make everyone so that we didn't even know how to kill," he said. "Then that would have worked a lot better. If I was God I'd do that."

'The Late Late Show' Goes to France, Talks Sharks With Jean Reno and Kristen Bell (VIDEO)

Kristen Bell & Jean Reno, 'The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson'Even though he was taping in Paris, Craig Ferguson was still sensitive to the fact that these episodes of 'The Late Late Show' (Weeknights, 12:37AM ET) would be airing during "Shark Week" in the United States.

Or maybe it was Kristen Bell who should get the credit, as she's the one who brought up sharks when they were talking to French actor Jean Reno. Stewart is Ferguson's traveling companion for the week.

She related a story about when she was filming 'Couples Retreat' in Bora Bora with Reno. He treated the cast to a once in a lifetime experience swimming with sharks courtesy of the chief diver from his film 'The Big Blue.'

'Veronica Mars' Creator: All Hope for a Movie is Not Lost

by Chris Harnick, posted Apr 6th 2010 4:30PM
Veronica Mars Kristen BellAttention 'Veronica Mars' fans: you'd better take a deep breath. Rob Thomas, the man behind 'Mars,' said all hope is not lost for a big screen version of the cult series -- but don't start celebrating yet.

The 'Mars' mastermind doesn't want fans to continue on the roller coaster that has been the 'Veronica Mars' movie saga, but he is exploring alternate routes -- like indie financing -- to reunite with Kristen Bell and the residents of Neptune on the big screen.

While promoting the second season of 'Party Down' (that part of the interview coming soon), Thomas divulged some new details about his ongoing quest to give 'Mars' fans a taste of the snarky private eye on the big screen.

Best TV of the '00s: Dramatic Actress

by Allison Waldman, posted Jan 1st 2010 11:02AM
allison_janney_west_wingMore of our best of the decade coverage, which started on Tuesday. You can read the other posts at the link above. Here, we talk about the best dramatic actresses of the decade.

Television has always been good to the ladies. Actresses have flourished in dramatic series, and in the past decade, we've seen some amazing performances. There have been lawyers, cops, a U.S. president, nurses, doctors, judges, mothers, daughters and even a real housewife from New Jersey whose husband was in the waste disposal business.

Many of these women have already been honored with Emmys and Golden Globes... and now they get the recognition of TV Squad.

Here, then, without further vamping, the best dramatic actresses of the past ten years:

Chris Lowell From 'Private Practice' Talks Explosions, 'Veronica Mars' and George Clooney (VIDEO)

by Jane Boursaw, posted Dec 2nd 2009 8:33PM
Private Practice, Chris Lowell as Dell ParkerAlthough Chris Lowell says he's "no Zac Efron," we beg to differ. The boyish actor has co-starred with everyone from Kristen Bell (one of his best friends) in 'Veronica Mars' to George Clooney in 'Up in the Air.'

But you might know him best from his role as Dell Parker, the receptionist-turned-midwife on the hit ABC show 'Private Practice.' If you've been missing Dell from the show this season, never fear. He has an "explosive" episode coming up Thursday night, in which his wife and daughter land in the hospital after a fierce explosion in their home.

We caught up with Lowell, who after apologizing for his raspy voice and noting it's because he's ill and not sexy (again, we beg to differ), gave us the skinny on playing a surfer dude, being typecast as an assistant and working with George Clooney.

Cinematical, TV Squad's detached fraternal siamese twin, also at Comic-Con

Even though TV Squad's very own John Scott Lewinski is fighting his way through hordes of overweight Rorschachs and pre-pubescent Chun Lis to get exclusive interviews and scoops on the newest TV news at the San Diego Comic Con, don't forget that our partners-in-crime from Cinematical are also there covering the latest flim-flam in film.

The movie side of the annual pop-culture cavalcade opened with one of the biggest names in the history of film and what could very well be one of the biggest names in the future of film. Director James Cameron screened a solid 25 minutes of his forthcoming sci-fi epic Avatar. Blogger Todd Gilchrist got a hint of the plot and special effects movie-goers can expect when the film hits theaters later this year and said it "promises to be both hugely entertaining and technically groundbreaking." Man, that's got me worried. That's what they also said about Titanic.

So much for that Veronica Mars movie

by Brad Trechak, posted Jul 4th 2009 11:09AM
Veronica MarsRemember that Veronica Mars movie that so many people were talking about? Well, according to an interview with series star Kristen Bell, it ain't happening. She and series creator Rob Thomas pitched the idea to Joel Silver and there was a resounding lack of interest. She suggested that fans try a letter-writing campaign.

I'm kind of surprised at that reaction, given that Veronica Mars is a recognizable brand name and would be relatively cheap to make (it's not exactly laden with special effects). While I considered the series to be a Buffy clone (that solved mysteries rather than fought vampires), it was a pretty good show in the beginning.

The only show I can think of that quickly went from TV to cancellation to a movie would be Firefly and that happened because of stellar DVD sales. So, if you really want that Veronica Mars movie, along with the letter-writing campaign, start buying more DVDs of the show.

It's official: Kristen Bell will appear on Party Down

kristen bell party down veronica marsI've seen the new show from Veronica Mars creator Rob Thomas, and it is good. No, not the Cupid redo; I'm talking about Party Down.

The comedy about a group of struggling actors working as caterers premieres March 20 on STARZ. The show reunites Thomas with Mars stars Ken Marino, Ryan Hansen and Adam Scott. Now, Veronica Mars herself, Kristen Bell, is slated to guest star on the season finale, airing May 22.

Bell will play a rival caterer who makes trouble for the regular characters. Thomas said he wrote the part with Bell in mind.

Veronica Mars movie is a go, says Rob Thomas

by Debra McDuffee, posted Jan 20th 2009 1:04PM
cast of Veronica MarsIf you are a Veronica Mars fan like I am, then you are probably still mourning the loss of the series; well, the first two seasons anyway. I'm sure the series hadn't run its course and that it would have rebounded from the fiasco known as season three, otherwise known as Piz.

OK, so maybe Piz grew on me a little, and he did keep Logan nice and angry, because nobody likes a happy Logan. And besides, would you want to see that sappy, insipid Logan in a feature film?

Did you like the way I slipped that in there? Feature film? Yep, Rob Thomas has confirmed that since the order on Cupid has been slashed from thirteen to eight episodes, he'll have time to write the Veronica Mars movie. And he spills the beans on some other juicy tidbits about the film too:

Veronica Mars stars to reunite on Party Down

by Mike Moody, posted Jan 13th 2009 5:05PM
party down starzI can't believe I forgot to add Party Down to my recent list of new shows I'm looking forward to. Not only is it produced by Veronica Mars creator Rob Thomas, but it also stars several Veronica Mars alums. Ken Marino (Vinnie Van Lowe), Ryan Hansen (Dick Casablancas), Adam Scott (Mr. Rooks), and Jane Lynch (Mrs. Donaldson) have all been cast in lead roles.

I know, I know; I was hoping to see Jason Dohring, Enrico Colantoni or even Kristen Bell on the cast list too. No such luck. But Colantoni is set to guest star in at least one episode, and so is Ed Begley Jr., who played Dean O'Dell in the last season of Veronica Mars. Plus, Thomas said that Bell has expressed interest in appearing on the show.
