Dear faithful readers,
remember Veronica Mars? Ah we loved Veronica Mars here on Couchslobs. Remember they had a story line that lasted SHOCK HORROR the whole season! And you had to pay attention to keep up with the story? Pffffffft
Unfortunately since the CW decided to cancel it because they needed to make room for quality programming such as 90210 Redux (I still haven’t seen one episode) and something called Shedding for the Wedding we can only reminisce about the good old days.
Anyhow I wanted to check what has Veronica Mars cast been up to.
Rob Thomas (the show’s creator)
Rob Thomas had a number of projects – Party Down which was quite good was cancelled after two seasons and he worked on Cupid Redux (that one only aired 7 episodes). He shortly worked on 90210 Redux for the CW, Viva Laughlin and Miss/Guided. I do hope one of his pilots will get picked up soon (and manage to stay on air longer then a few episodes).
Kristen Bell (aka Veronica Mars)
Kristen Bell has been trying to make her movie career happen ever since Veronica Mars ended. And I don’t blame the girl for trying. But Couples Retreat? Burlesque? Forgetting Sarah Marshall? When in Rome? Even You Again with a formidable cast flopped. She is so much better on television. Luckily I’ve read the news recently Bell has joined cast of Showtime’s House of Lies. Hopefully it will be up to scratch and I’m cautiously optimistic since a) it’s Showtime and they’ve had a good run lately and b) it also stars Don Cheadle and I don’t think he’d attach his name to a project that is destined to flop.
Percy Daggs III (aka Wallace)
Percy wasn’t AS busy as some of her former co-stars but he did manage to snag a spot on Southland, In Plain Sight and Raising the Bar.
Jason Dohring (aka Logan)
Oh Jason Dohring, loved (LOVED) him as Logan. All intense and shit. None can do intense and shit as Jason Dohring. He had a role on Moonlight (that one got cancelled), Party Down (just one episode), CSI and Lie to Me. Now I’ve seen that episode of Lie to Me and he played a sociopath. Is it ok to say he played that role really, really well? Dohring also has a movie out this year called Searching for Sonny.
Francis Capra (aka Weevil)
Francis Capra has worked continuously ever since Veronica Mars ended. And his credits are impressive – Sons of Anarchy, NCIS, Friday Night Lights, Criminal Minds, The Closer, Castle, Heroes, Blue Bloods and Bones. Good you on Francis, good on you.
Teddy Dunn (aka Duncan)
Ryan Hansen (aka Dick)
Ryan Hansen was cast for Party Down, but he also did a fair bit of both movie and TV work in between. he had a stint on Friends with Benefits, Gossip Girl, (818), Rockville CA and something called The LXD: The Legion of Extraordinary Dancers (yeah I don’t get what that is either).
Aaaaaaah Keith Mars has been missed. But Enrico Colantoni has been busy bee. He had a stint on Brothers & Sisters, Numbers, ZOS: Zone of Separation, Party Down and Bones. But it’s Flashpoint that is keeping him occupied. It is a series about a special tactical team that deals with all types of situations that are too complicated/dangerous for the police to handle. It first aired in Canada but then got picked up by CBS. Colantoni has 3 movies in post-production according to IMDB.
And in case you have been wondering why do we miss Veronica Mars check the video below. And I’ll admit I’m totally biased since I get persnickety too.
