'Hart of Dixie' enlists Broadway vet Laura Bell Bundy

According to The Huffington Post, Bundy will play Shelby beginning in the third episode of Season 2. Although we don't know too much about her character, the fact that she's got chemistry with George leads us to believe that perhaps Zoe didn't really take his appearance on her doorstep in the Season 1 finale as well as he would've liked.

Bundy has appeared on shows like "How I Met Your Mother" and "Modern Family," and originated the roles of Amber Von Tussle in "Hairspray" and Elle Woods in "Legally Blonde: The Musical," which you might've caught when MTV aired it on a seemingly daily basis a few years back. She'll stick around for at least two episodes.

"Hart of Dixie" Season 2 premieres Tuesday, Oct. 2 at 8 p.m. on The CW.
