Zap2it: Do you consider it a bonus that your "House of Lies" character, Jeannie, is relatively self-assured as a woman dealing with many men in the world of management consulting?
Kristen Bell: For sure. When Matt Carnahan [the show's creator and executive producer] was first writing her, we were both really clear that we didn't want her to be a caricature of a woman in any industry. We just wanted her to have confidence and have that be the reason that she's moved up ... but also have that extreme hunger that allows you to continue to accelerate your career.
It happens with men, too, that when a lot of people get to a high position, it's not nearly as satisfying as they had hoped. And the next goal of getting to the next-higher position is all they can think about.
