Matthew Fox and Kristen Bell making it big


It’s funny, I was just thinking last night ‘I wonder whether Lost will help Matthew Fox’s film career?’ and seems The Hollywood Reporter has an answer.

Fox, who plays Jack on TV smash “Lost”, has been signed to co-star with Matthew McConaughey in a new untitled football drama from “Charlies Angels” director McG.

The Warner Bros. project is about events following the 1970 plane crash that killed members of the West Virginia-based Marshall University football team, along with most of its coaching staff, sports commentators and many of its local boosters.

McConaughey has been cast as a determined coach named Jack Lengyel, who tries to rebuild the team. Fox is playing coach Red Dawson, who works with Lengyel.

The film marks Fox’s first studio film since 1993’s “My Boyfriend’s Back” co-starring Andrew Lowery.

Meanwhile, another popular young TV star, “Veronica Mars” starlet Kristen Bell, has snagged a role in a new comedic drama called “Fanboys”, about four “Star Wars” fanboys from the Midwest who drive across the country to honor the wish of their dying friend who wanted to see “The Phantom Menace” at Lucas’s ranch. It co-stars Jay Baruchel, Chris Marquette and Sam Huntington.
