Kristen Bell Chimes In

Variety reports that Kristen Bell has joined the voice cast of the CG animated Astro Boy movie from Imagi. She is the star of "Veronica Mars" and "Heroes" on TV and "Forgetting Sarah Marshall" on the big screen.

Sounds like another great addition! No word yet on what character she'll be playing, except that it's a key role, likely a female friend of Astro's.

This news has been reported by a whole bunch of websites, many of them with some kind of "Bell" or "Mars" related pun in the headline. I'm happy to continue the trend. For obvious reasons, I'm also happy to include a picture of Kristen with this post.

I'm not sure if your aware of this but there is some snapshots of Astro Boy character model and some concept art over at the Astro Boy Online forum:

Yes, I've seen them. Wasn't sure how to present them here since there is no context, but they're everywhere now so I guess there is no choice.
