Kristen Bell was on George Lopez last night promoting her new movie When In Rome, which opens Friday.  In my house, we refer to her as my tiny blonde girlfriend.  Because, besides Eliza Dushku, she would be the only woman I would turn complete and total lesbian for.

BUT –

Kristen Bell was on George Lopez last night.  And she did a fantastic interview and plugged her new movie.

What I love about Kristen Bell is that she is so versatile.  She can go from drama to comedy and back again in the blink of an eye, and the change of a channel.  For those of you who aren’t familiar with her resume, before she got a big break with Forgetting Sarah Marshall – on of my favorite movies EVER – she was Veronica Mars, teen detective.  She also had a recurring role as Elle in the third season of Heroes.  But even before she did tv, she was in movies AND on Broadway.  Is there nothing she can’t do?

George Lopez gave her such an amazing compliment during her interview as well.  He commented on her ease with comedic roles, and referred to her as a modern day Lucille Ball.  He couldn’t have been more right on point in saying that.  She excels at both the physical comedy and the subtle comedy, and can play dramatic roles when the time calls for it.

I’m TOTALLY looking forward to seeing When In Rome, and perhaps Chriso will want to go see it opening night.  But we must see it soon.  And how can I not want to see it with this description:

An ambitious young New Yorker, disillusioned with romance, takes a whirlwind trip to Rome where she defiantly plucks magic coins from a fountain of love, inexplicably igniting the passion of those who threw them in: a sausage magnate, a street magician, an adoring painter and a self-admiring model. But, when a charming reporter pursues her with equal zest, how will she know if his love is the real thing?

So, the long and short of everything I just wrote are three things:

  1. I love Kristen Bell.  And I’m pretty sure if I mentioned the tiny blonde girlfriend thing to her, we would be in stalker territory.  So I’ll keep that to myself.
  2. Kristen Bell is a modern day Lucille Ball, versatile and the epitome of an amazing comedic actress.
  3. When In Rome opens this Friday.  Go see it.
