Kristen Bell Would Finance a 'Veronica Mars' Film ... If Warner Bros. Lets Her

by Chris Harnick, posted Sep 23rd 2010 4:30PM
Kristen BellGood news! Kristen Bell wants to finance a 'Veronica Mars' film. Bad News! Warner Bros. won't release the film rights.

Bell, series creator Rob Thomas and a small army of fans have campaigned for a film since the show's cancellation in 2007, but Warner Bros. has been the reluctant party.

"It's a business and the sad truth is that ... they're not going to relinquish the rights to something and let us do it," Bell told the The Hollywood Reporter at the premiere of her new movie, 'You Again.' "We really have to do it with them because they own it."

Bell, Thomas and super producer Joel Silver took a pitch to Warner Bros., but the studio came back saying the number of viewers who would see a film just wasn't large enough. Fans, meanwhile, counter that statement on Twitter on a daily basis -- just search #VeronicaMars or #VeronicaMarsMovie to see the loyal following who have taken to the social networking site.

Kristen Bell Doesn't Like 'True Blood' and Craig Ferguson Nearly Did Porn (VIDEO)

Kristen Bell Talks 'True Blood' on 'Late Late'Kristen Bell has seen only one episode of 'True Blood.' "It was a very naked episode, and I was a little scared," the actress admitted on 'The Late Late Show' (weeknights, 12:37AM ET on CBS). But Craig Ferguson's wife likes 'True Blood' -- specifically the "big Danish viking vampire." (Heh, don't we all?)

"Your wife is a perv!" joked Bell.
Speaking of naked, Ferguson said, "I got offered a porn." Bell replied, "Why did you just randomly get offered a porn?" Um... not so random. He'd just moved to the U.S., and a friend of a friend offered him a job. First clue: a four-page script for a feature-length film. Ferguson assumed that meant a lot of improv -- and it did. But not of the comedic variety.

Suffice to say, he didn't do it. "I don't think your wife would like it -- although, since she loves 'True Blood,' maybe she would!" said Bell. The actress then asked Ferguson whom he liked better: her or Betty White. Check the video for his response -- which also has to do with porn.

'Project Runway': Guest Judge Kristen Bell Scolds Ivy for Shifting Blame (VIDEO)

Kristen Bell Serves as Guest Judge on 'Project Runway'On 'Project Runway' (Thu., 9PM ET on LIFE), Michael Kors says Ivy's design "has no personality." Nina Garcia goes a step further, saying, "You're very good technically, but I question if you have the ideas to really be a designer."

Of course, nothing is Ivy's fault; she blames the look on teammate Michael D. "Because of [his] limitations of skill, I had to edit down a lot." Meanwhile, Heidi Klum has noticed Michael C. rolling his eyes at everything Ivy says. He calls her bossy and terrifying.

Guest judge Kristen Bell then bravely chides Ivy for not working with Michael D.'s strengths. Ivy still doesn't take responsibility. At least the judges note that the contestant "threw [Michael D.] under the bus," says Klum.

'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.
