Kristen Bell joins Christina Aguilera in Burlesque
Posted by: Sturdy
Veronica Mars alum Kristen Bell will be playing Christina Aguilera’s rival in the upcoming film BURLESQUE. In it, Aguilera is a small town girl trying to find success in an LA burlesque club. The movie also stars Cher as a nightclub owner and Stanley Tucci as Aguilera’s mentor.
This is an interesting choice because Aguilera is a great singer/dancer, but an unproven actress while Bell is a great actress but an unproven singer/dancer. I’m interested to see how they work together onscreen. Bell is one of the better young starlets out there even though I’m not a big fan of her Heroes character. So let’s hope she can keep the whining down to a minimum.
