Kristen Bell Wants to Work With Dax Shepard, Idea in the Works

The couple that works together stays together! Kristen Bell is very hopeful that she and husband Dax Shepard can collaborate onscreen again sometime soon, she shared with Us Weekly and other reporters at the Television Critics Association’s winter press tour on Sunday, January 19.

“We’re discussing it right now. There’s an idea in the works that may or may not come to fruition,” the 39-year-old actress, who is voicing Apple TV+’s new series Central Park, said. “The blunt truth is that we get offered a lot of things, like, ‘Would you guys host this whatever?’ ‘Would you guys do this sitcom together?’ We don’t want to do it just to do it. We want it to be good and so we spend a lot of time percolating on what the right idea would be.”

The Veronica Mars star also noted that they need to make sure it works with their schedules and their views.

“Are we saying something with it? Are we going to have fun with it? Are the hours going to be digestible for our family life? There are so many variables that it does take a little bit of time, but, yes, I would work with him in a heartbeat,” she said.

Bell and Shepard, 45, began dating in 2007 and married in 2013. They now share two daughters: Lincoln, 6, and Delta, 4. The duo have costarred in multiple projects including 2010’s When in Rome, 2012’s Hit and Run and 2017’s CHiPs.

“I know it’s not this way in every relationship, but anytime I get to work with my husband I’m impressed because it’s just more time I get to spend with him,” Bell continued. “People often ask why I like working with him. It’s because I chose him as my husband because I trust him more than I trust any other person on the planet so why on earth would I not want that in a scene partner or a director?”

As for what they do together when they’re not working, it’s simple: Relax and watch TV.

“When I get home, it’s the time that I reconnect with my husband,” she added. “You know, so he’s talked out because of his podcast, so sitting on the couch and just relaxing, watching TV together.”

A plaque dedicated to Matthew Shepard installed at Washington National Cathedral

The plaque notes his final resting place in the columbarium near the Chapel of St. Joseph of Arimathea. It also includes words from Bishop Gene Robinson’s homily last year: “Matt, rest gently in this place. You are home safe now.”

“We’ve given much thought to Matt’s final resting place, and we found the Washington National Cathedral is an ideal choice, as Matt loved the Episcopal church and felt welcomed by his church in Wyoming,” his mother Judy Shepard said in a news release. “For the past 20 years, we have shared Matt’s story with the world. It’s reassuring to know he now will rest in a sacred spot where folks can come to reflect on creating a safer, kinder world.”

Shepard died when he was 21 from injuries after he was attacked and left in a field during a hate crime. His death sparked outrage and led to years of advocacy and action in the LGBTQ movement.

In 2009, the Matthew Shepard and James Byrd Jr. Hate Crimes Prevention Act made it a crime to commit violent acts against people because of their religion, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity, or disability.

On Monday, a day after what would have been Shepard’s 43rd birthday, the Washington National Cathedral and the Matthew Shepard Foundation honored his legacy through a dedication ceremony.

“People around the world gave generously to make this memorial possible,” his mother said in a news release. “We’re grateful for each gift that created this beautiful plaque that now marks Matt’s final resting place. We hope this will be a place that forever offers solace and strength for all who visit.”

Shepard’s remains are held in the cathedral’s West Crypt Columbarium but are not accessible to the public. Helen Keller’s remains are also held in the same crypt. His plaque is mounted opposite Keller’s own plaque.

Over the past year, visitors have come to the chapel to honor Matthew Shepard by leaving notes, flowers, candles and other mementos that are preserved in the cathedral archives, a cathedral spokesperson said.

“Finally, Matthew is home and he is safe,” the Very Rev. Randolph “Randy” Marshall Hollerith said in a statement. “Matthew’s indelible legacy and the enduring strength and courage of his family and loved ones serve as a guiding force for all of us in how to confront bigotry by fostering greater love, acceptance and embrace of people of all backgrounds, gender identities and sexual orientations.”
