Veronica Mars star Kristen Bell will join NBC’s Heroes for a multiepisode in October. According to Variety, Bell will play Elle, a sexy, mysterious young lady who has ties to the supposed death of Peter, H.R.G.’s past and the future of Claire. No word yet on if she’s a good girl or a bad girl but the character does commit a serious crime in her debut.

“This was not easy to pull off,” said Heroes creator-exec producer Tim Kring. “But since we’re an ensemble show, with many arcs playing out through the year, we found a way to jump into a small window in (Bell’s) schedule.”

Look for Kristen in the upcoming Forgetting Sarah Marshall and Fanboys. She will also narrate the CW’s new drama Gossip Girl.
