The Internet is buzzing about Patriots’ owner Robert Kraft after he was spotted with a lovely young woman at the Celtics game Thursday night. He introduced 32-year-old Ricki Noel Lander to us as his friend, but after so many courtside photos were taken of the twosome, there was curiosity about whether she’s something more. Kraft, whose wife of more than 40 years, Myra, died last July, hasn’t responded to our calls so we can’t say much about them. But we can tell you about Lander: She’s a dancer and actress who appeared as a model on “Ugly Betty” and played “Servant Faerie” in a 2011 episode of “True Blood.” The Internet Movie Database says she’ll play Nurse Elizabeth in the 2013 movie “Red Band,” which will feature A-listers Emma Stone, Richard Gere, Jason Sudeikis, Pittsfield’s Elizabeth Banks, Hugh Jackman, and Kate Winslet . Lander is from Salt Lake City. According to her biography on the website for the movie “The Harsh Life of Veronica Lambert,” a.k.a. “5 Nights in Hollywood,” Lander moved to Los Angeles at 15 to train with the Los Angeles Classical Ballet and studied at Mike Nichols’s New Actors Workshop in New York. As of Friday morning she had about 150 Twitter followers, but we assume that will be increasing.
