Kristen Bell yearns serious roles, but slotted for silly parts

HollywoodNews.com: After weathering two romantic comedy misfires at the box office, “When in Rome” ($33 million) and this weekend’s opener “You Again” ($8.4 million), actress Kristen Bell is looking to dip her feet into more dramatic roles.

Speaking to PA, Bell said “It’s funny because once you do a comedy then the next opportunities you get are sort of in that line.”

Meaning – she’s pigeon-holed in romantic laffers.

“I would love to do something dramatic but right now comedy is more kind of where my wheel house is.”

Perhaps her fortune will change once the musical Sony/Screen Gems film “Burlesque” is released on November 24. In the film, Bell stars alongside Cher and Christina Aguilera. The actress has shown her chops for more dicey fare when she appeared as a pickpocket who gets beaten up on David Milch’s western series “Deadwood.” In 2002, Bell starred in the Broadway revival of “The Crucible” opposite Liam Neeson and Laura Linney. So if there’s any doubt by bloggers on whether Bell can emote or not, the answer is a resounding ‘Yes.’

The actress recently exclaimed her desire to bring “Veronica Mars” to the big screen. However, she needs to continue to champion Warner Bros., the film’s rights holder.
