New Hero on "Heroes" Tonight

Kristen Bell rules. If you saw her in "Veronica Mars", then you are already a fan. She will debut on "Heroes" tonight, as a new character named "Elle".

However, this week is just a tease, according to a Zap2It article. She will appear this week, but then does not show up again for two more episodes. But, after that, she will be a series regular, with a thirteen episode contract.

Here's the quote on Elle's background (nothing too spoilery included):

"She has ties to HRG [Jack Coleman] and Claire [Hayden Panettiere] ... But she also has ties a little bit to Suresh. And she's a little messed up in the head, which makes her really manipulative and always out to get what she wants. She doesn't have many boundaries. ... She very much enjoys her power and enjoys the emotional power it gives her over other people."

And, just in case you are wondering why I stressed Kristen Bell over the fact that there is a new character in "Heroes", the interview portion of the article that I linked should win you over. As an example, witness the following response from Ms. Bell to a question about her being a fangirl:

"...the New Beverly [Cinema] in Los Angeles had a double feature the other night of Tron and the Last Starfighter. So I was like, I kind of need to see that at least just once in my life because that seemed like an awesome double feature, you know?"

She's one of us! "Heroes" airs on NBC at 9 PM EST Mondays.

I can't wait to see her!!!
