Last month, "Scream 4" director Wes Craven put a call out on
target="_blank">Twitterfor fans to suggest actors for cameo roles in the upcoming film. The franchise has a long history of placing famous faces in front of the camera — from Drew Barrymore to Kevin Smith — and although more than a decade has passed since "Scream 3," Craven made clear he intended to keep up the franchise's cameo tradition. "No janitor, doctor or tourist," he wrote.
While we don't know if the director took any advice from the Twitter-verse, we do know the names of two two actors who will pop up in the new movie: Anna Paquin and Kristen Bell.

The two women join returning stars Neve Campbell, Courteney Cox and David Arquette, as well as newcomers Hayden Panettiere, Emma Roberts and Rory Culkin. The film is set for release on April 15, 2011.
"I think it's just perfect timing, the amount of time that has passed since the last one came out," Panettiere told MTV News. "For an audience that is so well-versed in 'Scream' [films] and in what happens and who becomes the killer, blah, blah, blah, it's trickier to throw them a curveball," she said. "I think they've done a really cool job with the script. We've had a blast on it."
