10 Random Kristen Bell Roles You Totally Forgot About

Would you look at that? Kristen Bell is celebrating her 35th birthday on July 18, which is all the excuse we need to binge-watch Veronica Mars and Heroes reruns and download lots of sloth videos. Thanks, K.B.!

Career-wise, this gal really gets around. When she's not lending her voice to Anna of Frozen fame or melting our hearts with husband Dax Shepard in a Samsung commercial, Bell is busy acting up a storm on House of Lies and making loads other exciting on-screen appearances. She's everywhere, and she's been everywhere. Before she won our hearts as Veronica Mars, she'd already carved out some seriously impressive guest-starring roles. Does her tattooed turn on The Shield ring a bell? Or her scene in Pootie Tang? Don't tell us you've forgotten her contributions to Deadwood AND Everwood.

These roles may not be as memorable as, say, Gossip Girl or even When in Rome, but they do deserve proper recognition. If not for yourself, do it for Kristen. It is her birthday, after all.
