Good news, Marshmallows! The Veronica Mars gang is getting back together again! Well, sort of.
You may recall that earlier this year, The CW ordered a Veronica Mars spin-off web series centered on Ryan Hansen’s fan-favorite character Dick Casablancas. The uber-meta project follows a fictional version of Hansen as he tries to get a Dick Casablancas show on TV; titled Play It Again, Dick, natch, it'll center on the actor's attempts to capitalize on Veronica Mars' recent resurgence in popularity due and sucessfully Kickstarted movie release.
According to Buzzfeed, filming on the eight-episode web series is now completed—and several original cast members will be appearing as both themselves and their Neptune alter egos.
Among those reprising their roles and appearing as fictional versions of themselves are Kristen Bell as Veronica, Jason Dohring as Logan Echolls, Enrico Colantoni as Keith Mars, Percy Daggs III as Wallace Fennel, Daran Norris as Cliff Morcmack, Francis Capra as Eli “Weevil” Navarro, Kyle Gallner as (my name is) Cassidy "Beaver" Casablancas, and Christopher B. Duncan as the silent and deadly Clarence Wiedman.
Additionally, Ryan Devlin, who played [SPOILER ALERT!] rapist Mercer Hayes in Season 3 will play himself as well as Veronica's ex-boyfriend Duncan Kane, who was played by Teddy Dunn on the original series. Ken Marino and Chris Lowell will also appear as themselves, and Amanda Noret and Lisa Thornhill will reprise their roles as Madison Sinclair and Celeste Kane in the show-within-a-show.
Veronica Mars creator Rob Thomas penned the script, which explains why Robert Buckley and Rose McIver, who both star in Thomas’s upcoming midseason drama iZombie, will drop by as guest stars.
I only have two questions: First, Where the hell is Tina Majorino? And second, how is Gallner going to play Cassidy if he's [SPOILER ALERT!] dead?
Play It Again, Dick premieres the week of September 15 on CW Seed.
