Kristen Bell (Veronica Mars)
After Veronica Mars, Kristen Bell traded her telephoto lens for superpowers during a 12-episode arc on Heroes, guest-starred for a few episodes of Rob Thomas’s other gone-too-soon show Party Down, and then headed to the big screen.
Films of hers released since Veronica's demise include Forgetting Sarah Marshall, Fanboys, a handful of romcoms and light dramas (You Again, When in Rome, Couples Retreat, Big Miracle, and her fiance/now-baby-daddy Dax Shepard’s film Hit and Run, which also co-starred Ryan Hansen), and the timeless musical Burlesque.
Back on the TV front, in addition to voicing Gossip Girl’s titular character for five years, she has starred as Jeannie Van Der Hooven on Showtime’s House of Lies for two seasons and counting.
Notably, she also had an epic sloth meltdown on The Ellen DeGeneres Show in 2011 and gave birth to her first child, daughter Lincoln, in March.
