Actress Krysten Ritter was all smiles while cruising around NYC yesterday afternoon.
For those of you who missed it, the 32-year-old beauty was recently cast in NBC’s upcoming astronaut-themed comedy pilot ‘Mission Control‘. Krysten will play the role of an aerospace engineer named Dr. Mary Kendricks working in a space program that employs mostly men. Sounds like it has elements of ‘Big Bang’ by place a hottie in a geek setting. Let’s hope NBC was successful in poaching a few ‘Big Bang’ writers to help finally hit one out of the park from a ratings standpoint.
As most of you know, Krysten Ritter is best known for her roles on “Breaking Bad,” as well as the ABC comedy series “Don’t Trust the B—- in Apartment 23″ stayed in shape with a jog through L.A.’s Runyon Canyon Park. The 32-year-old beauty was accompanied by a male friend and her pet pooch.
With four films set to drop this year, the film with the most buzz is probably ‘Veronica Mars’, which will of course be based on the original CW series starring Kristen Bell. Last year, the film’s director, producer & writer Rob Thomas generated a lot of press by avoiding the usual Hollywood funding system and utilizing Kickstarter, the world’s largest crowdfunding platform. The film, which will hit theaters on March 14, went on to meet its $2 million goal in less than ten hours—a record for the Kickstarter. Needless to say, it’ll be very interesting to see the final product, but more importantly, I think a lot of people will be waiting to see how much money this film will generate at the box-office!

As some of you ‘Veronica Mars’ fans or film buffs will remember, the creator of the original series Rob Thomas joined forces with the show’s star Kristen Bell & opted for crowding sourcing as a main source for funding for the ‘Veronica Mars’ film. The film, which Rob Thomas co-wrote with Diane Ruggiero soon after the original series was canceled by Warner Bros., reached its $2 million goal on Kickstarter in less than ten hours. Ultimately, the film broke a number of records on its way to raising a total $5.7 million via Kickstarter from more than 91,000 donors. Pretty crazy.
Initial filming began on June 17 & the film is set for a 2014 release. These latest pics were snapped yesterday afternoon in the film set with co-stars Krysten Ritter & Kristen Bell, who believe it or not, just popped out a baby girl back in March.

Abby (Kate Bosworth) has invited her childhood friends Lou (Lake Bell) and Sarah (Katie Aselton) to return to a remote island that they once spent time at in their youth, in the hopes of drawing the now distant group back together. On the island they run into Henry (Will Bouvier), Derek (Jay Paulson), and Alex (Anslem Richardson), three hunters and veteran soldiers. The two groups are initially friendly, but things grow tense after the three men mention that they had been dishonorably discharged from the military while serving in the Middle East. Relatively unperturbed, Sarah wanders off to have sex with Henry, but changes her mind partway through. In an attempt to stop what is now rape, Sarah accidentally kills Henry, which prompts his two friends to stalk and hunt the three women. [Wiki]
