The Scream series has always succeeded in attracting great cameos for its opening kill sequence, and Scream 4 will not be the exception. According to USA Today, both Veronica Mars's Kristen Bell and True Blood's Anna Paquin have agreed to go under Ghostface's knife.
Anna Paquin joins Scream 4 as bait
The two actresses will join a growing list of high profile names who've previously appeared as bait in the first three films. Things kicked off with Drew Barrymore meeting her untimely demise in the 1996 original. Other guest star kills include Rose McGowan, Liev Schreiber, Henry Winkler, Jada Pinkett Smith, Omar Epps, and Sarah Michelle Gellar.
The article did not go into further details about Kristen Bell and Anna Paquin's appearance, or which one, if not both, will get sliced, diced and gutted in Scream 4's highly anticipated opening prologue. More surprise celebrities are expected to appear in the film, with Scream 4 rumored to have the highest cameo count of any of the previous horror installments.
