Kristen Bell has been selected as the first-ever host of the SAG Awards and will emcee the 24th edition of the show on Jan. 21 at the Shrine Auditorium.

Executive Producer Kathy Connell made the announcement on Monday.

“We are delighted to have Kristen Bell as the first-ever host of the SAG Awards,” Connell said. “This has been a year in which assumptions have been challenged, stereotypes have been shattered, and precedents have been broken. We decided to capture the cultural mood by casting aside one of our own traditions, and we’re thrilled to have such a talented performer like Bell help us do so.”

Bell is currently starring in the film “A Bad Moms Christmas” and in NBC’s “The Good Place,” opposite Ted Danson. She will star in the Netflix comedy “Like Father,” with Kelsey Grammer as her titular dad. She is also reprising her voice role as Anna in the 2019 sequel to Disney’s “Frozen.”

“I am honored to be part of the SAG Awards, and am a little nervous about being its first-ever host,” Bell said. “I’m so glad that I’ll be in the company of my fellow actors, many of whom I’ve worked with before, so I know they’ll be warm and supportive. It’s going to be an amazing night.”

The awards show will be broadcast live on TNT and TBS. Nominations will be announced on Dec. 13 at the Pacific Design Center in Los Angeles. Morgan Freeman has been announced as the SAG Life Achievement Award recipient. [Source]

Disney and ABC have lined up an act sure to please “Frozen” fans: Idina Menzel and Kristen Bell will perform together for the first time on prime-time television during “The Wonderful World of Disney: Magical Holiday Celebration.” The program airs 9 to 11 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 30.

Menzel gave voice to Elsa, and Bell supplied the voice of Anna in “Frozen,” the beloved 2013 animated film. The actresses will sing “When We’re Together” from the new featurette “Olaf’s Frozen Adventure.” They will be backed by a choir on the steps of Sleeping Beauty Castle at Disneyland Resort in California. Menzel also will perform “When You Wish Upon a Star” during “Disney Parks Magical Christmas Celebration.” That special airs on Christmas morning on ABC affiliates.

Bell said in a statement: “This performance will combine two of my very favorite things: the holidays and singing alongside my ‘Frozen’ sister, Idina Menzel. I’m excited to sing a song with Idina that I feel has the potential to become a new holiday classic.” Menzel said: “Anytime I get to reunite with Kristen, whether it’s in the studio or on the stage, is very special for me. I think I can speak for her when I say we are both so proud of this story we get to tell and these sisters we get to portray.” [Source]

Cartoon Network’s Teen Titans Go! is arguably the most entertaining superhero show on TV (and inarguably the most divisive), but now Warner Bros. has confirmed that it’s bringing the songs about waffles, the important lessons about real estate, and the very rare instances of actual crimefighting action to theaters with Teen Titans Go! To The Movies.

Before now, the studio had only offered vague teases about the project’s existence, but a Twitter account launched today that revealed the movie’s full title and main voice cast. The core Teen Titans cast will thankfully be there—meaning each use of “booyah” will sound the way it’s supposed to—but the cast list also featured two new names: Will Arnett and Kristen Bell.

NBC’s afterlife comedy ended its first season with Eleanor and her Good Place buddies getting their memories wiped by the dastardly Michael, but Season 2 won’t feel like a rerun, creator Michael Schur assures us. “You’re not going to see Season 1 happen again slowly over the course of Season 2,” he notes, adding that Eleanor is “immediately sort of suspicious and aware of the fact that there’s something amiss,” thanks to the note she left herself about Chidi. Speaking of Eleanor and Chidi, they were paired up as soulmates in Season 1, “but what happens when you just reset it?” Schur asks. “The way they meet each other in this new version is completely different from the first time.” Also completely different: Ted Danson’s performance as Michael. “At the very beginning of the premiere, we get to see him as he truly is,” Schur hints. “It’s really fun. I think of it as, like, ‘Ted Danson Unleashed. Ted Danson After Dark.’”

BONUS SPOILER!: Michael’s newly rebooted Good Place offers almost-heavenly touches that are actually hellish, like a bubbling clam-chowder fountain. And that’s not the only thing on the menu, Schur says: “In one of the restaurants, only serve Hawaiian pizza… which is an abomination.”

RETURN DATE: Wednesday, Sept. 20 at 10/9c (NBC); timeslot premiere Thursday, Sept. 28 at 8:30 pm

Kristen Bell is sneaking out of The Good Place to visit the land of animation again. 

The time, the Frozen alum will lend her voice to Family Guy, playing a possible love interest for Brian, EW has learned exclusively.

In an episode of the animated Fox comedy slated to air in November, the Griffin canine meets her character, Martha (as seen below), when he gets a job at a suicide prevention hotline. “Brian falls for his officemate, Martha — a young woman trying to make her way in the big city,” says Family Guy executive producer Rich Appel. “She comes complete with her own theme song, which, like all great sitcom theme songs, literally tells you everything you need to know about her.” He adds: “Kristen Bell’s voice alone could sell anything.” [Source]

The Good Place and Bad Moms star Kristen Bell has been tapped to sing the closing tune to the Jeff Orlowski-directed Sundance documentary Chasing Coral, available to stream on Netflix July 14. The original song, titled Tell Me How Long, was composed by Dan Romer and Teddy Geiger and is described as a rousing plea about the climate crisis and the devastating phenomenon of global bleaching of coral reefs.

“I was moved and inspired by Chasing Coral and its message of hope for our planet’s future,” said Bell, who also voices the role of Princess Anna in Disney’s Frozen and its upcoming sequel. “I feel a responsibility to care for the earth in whatever way I can and I was honored to lend my voice to the original song. As we strive to make a better world for our children, I hope this film will ignite real action in advancing climate solutions in our global communities.” [Source]
