Once again actress Kristen Bell answers the call of Ubisoft, reprising her role as adorable blonde woman in Assassin's Creed II.

The adorable blonde woman in question is Lucy Stillman, the Abstergo employee with a dark secret of secretive darkness. Lucy plays an even bigger role in Assassin's Creed II, and the former Heroes and Veronica Mars cast member was Ubisoft's only choice to fill her shoes. Well, Patrice's only choice.

"Kristen Bell is a talented actress that brought the depth and emotion necessary for the mysterious role of Lucy for the first Assassin's Creed video game. She breathed life into her character in a way that deepened the gaming experience," said Patrice Desilets, creative director for Assassin's Creed II. "She did such a fantastic job for this character that, for me, Kristen Bell is Lucy Stillman and no one else can play that role."

If I were Kristen Bell I wouldn't be writing up this story, for one, and I'd probably be worried that I would be typecast as an adorable blonde woman until the end of time. She seems okay with it though.

"Being a part of the first Assassin's Creed video game was an amazing experience. Video games is such a creative entertainment medium, and to be able to see and play myself as a video game character was surreal. As an actress, it's both challenging and rewarding to play a complex character with this great mysterious background. I'm very happy to be Lucy once more, and I look forward to fans discovering more about her - they will be pleasantly surprised."

I am always pleasantly surprised by Kristen Bell.

i like how they just seem to pretend that the first ass creed wasn't a horrible fail, a tech demo without gameplay, a broken onetrack experience with moronic ai and unskippable cutscenes, hyped beyond recognition and sold with hype.

in many ways ac was like a vapid supermodel, looking gorgeous but with *nothing* beneath the surface to engage you. and now they're doing the same thing, just spinning the hype a bit differently and adding costumes. whoopdeddooo.
