Kristen Bell, who stars in Couples Retreat, which opens wide today, is going to be taking on Christina Aguilera in Burlesque, a sexy musical drama from director Steve Antin, one of the guys behind the Pussycat Dolls. Bell will be playing the lead dancer and main attraction at the club (owned by Cher) who spirals out of control when Aguilera’s bumpkin-cum-superstar starts getting all her spotlight, thanks to Stanley Tucci’s makeover magic. Bell is no stranger to the sultry song-and-dance action, by the way – check out her eye-popping performance in Reefer Madness: The Movie Musical.
