LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - Expert scene-stealer Will Arnett has packed his bags for "When in Rome," a Disney romantic comedy starring Kristen Bell.

The former "Veronica Mars" actress plays a love-starved New York curator who steals magical coins from the Trevi Fountain in Rome but soon finds herself in a bizarre situation when she is pursued back to New York by a band of aggressive suitors whose coins she took.

Arnett ("Blades of Glory") will play one of the suitors, an Italian artist. He joins Josh Duhamel, Jon Heder, Anjelica Huston and Dax Shepard. Shooting begins next month. Mark Steven Johnson directs.

Arnett can be heard in Fox's "Dr. Seuss' Horton Hears a Who!" in which he voices Vlad. He recently wrapped "G Force" for Disney and producer Jerry Bruckheimer.
