Is Veronica Mars headed to Lost?

Now I’m not one to go ‘round spreading rumors. Really. I’m just not the gossiping kind. But this time, I’m making an exception. This TV scoop is just too good not to share.

TV Guide’s Michael Ausiello is reporting that Veronica Mars star Kristen Bell’s name has “been brought up” for the new role of Charlotte on Lost. The casting information for the character describes Charlotte as "precocious, loquacious and funny... a very successful academic who also knows how to handle herself in the real world.”

That sounds a lot like Veronica Mars. No one does loquacious, funny and precocious better than the lovely Ms. Bell.

I’m torn about this news, frankly. Bell deserves a meaty role, and Lost is such an ensemble show I fear she wouldn’t get much screen time to shine. However, being on one of television’s most popular shows may finally get her the much-deserved attention she deserves. (Yes, I’m talking to you Emmy voters.)

Only time will tell, if Bell will be cooling her heels on the beaches of Hawaii. If she lands there, I can ‘t wait to hear her saucy response to Saywer’s infamous line to new characters, “Who the hell are you?”

I think she'd be a cool addition to the Losties, but not The Others. HATE THEM!
