Yet another hire at The Hollywood Reporter. This one not so traditional. Actress Lake Bell has just been named the mag’s automotive contributing editor. Bell’s “Test Drive” column, on Hollywood’s high-end automotive trends, has appeared in the past four THR’s. Looks like it’s a keeper.
Bell is a working actress who stars in Adult Swim’s hilarious Children’s Hospital. She’s also the daughter of racetrack owner Harvey Siegel–who runs the Virginia International Raceway and New Jersey Motorsports Park. So she should know her stuff as far as cars are concerned. Unfortunately, whatever the opposite of a grease monkey is, we’re that. So we couldn’t tell you one way or the other.
