Veronica Mars: Kristen Bell

Mike Ansell/ The CW

As Veronica herself would say, now that she's a Battlestar fan: FRAK.

EW.com is reporting that Kristen Bell will be doing voice-overs as the Gossip Girl herself on the CW drama coming next season from The O.C. creator Josh Schwartz. And you've heard the rumors that VM show runner Rob Thomas was invited to produce Hugh Jackman's Viva Laughlin! Also, the CW can supposedly pick up Veronica Mars as late as June 15, but it will not be announcing a pickup at its upfront tomorrow.

1:52 p.m. Update: You gotta love modern technology! I'm inside Carnegie liveblogging the CBS presentation and just corresponded via email with Rob Thomas about VM.

He tells me:

"We could still be a midseason replacement. We've known for a couple of weeks that they were thinking of us in terms of midseason. We don't know when we'll hear something definite.

"I've known Kristen did the disembodied-voice work on Gossip Girl for quite some time. Totally cool with me.

"I was approached by Viva Laughlin, but I really want to concentrate on either Veronica Mars or future development."

Thoughts?
