Kristen Bell has signed on to star in the indie quarter-life crisis movie The Lifeguard, Deadline reports. She'll play a 30-year-old who quits her adult life and moves back to her hometown, where she resumes her high school lifeguarding job — and starts dating a 16-year-old. Between this and Hello I Must Be Going, regressing women meeting jailbait/underage guys is really in the air.
