I think it is fair to say that the Veronica Mars movie
was a thing of beauty--box office sales sure said so. So when it was announced that there was going to be a spin-off webseries
, well, we couldn't say “yes please” quickly enough!
Well, now BuzzFeed
has exclusively announced that, not only is the web series definitely confirmed, but Play It Again, Dick
will also feature the ENTIRE cast returning and we have been treated to the plot!
described the series and Kristen Bell’s character as “a webseries [revolving] around a fictional Veronica Mars
spin-off that Hansen has ‘written’ as a star-vehicle for himself. Like almost everyone involved, Bell plays a slightly skewed version of herself who has — begrudgingly — agreed to reprise her role as the titular sleuth for Hansen’s spin-off".
Here is a handy list so you can be absolutely sure that all of your favorites are back and see some interesting things that this list reveals!
- Kristen Bell as Veronica Mars and Kristen Bell
- Jason Dohring as Logan Echolls and Jason Dohring
- Enrico Colantoni as Keith Mars and Enrico Colantoni
- Percy Daggs III as Wallace Fennel and Percy Daggs III
- Daran Norris as Cliff McCormack and Daran Norris
- Francis Capra as Eli “Weevil” Navarro and Francis Capra
- Kyle Gallner as Cassidy “Beaver” Casablancas and Kyle Gallner
- Christopher B. Duncan as Clarence Wiedman and Christopher B. Duncan
- Ryan Devlin as Duncan Kane and Ryan Devlin
- Chris Lowell as Chris Lowell
- Ken Marino as Ken Marino
- Amanda Noret as Madison Sinclair
- Lisa Thornhill as Celeste Kane
Now, here are some notes from this list:
1) Ryan Devlin, who played rapist Mercer Hayes in the third season, is returning to replace Teddy Dunn as Duncan Kane.
2) Ken Marino is only Ken Marino. Are we upset? ...kinda.
3) Amanda Noret is Madison Sinclair. Completely factional, not reprising her role as...herself? As will Lisa Thornhill as Celeste Kane.
4) There are two new faces joining the cast, so there are more names to remember (is it just me or is this getting more and more complex?). Robert Buckley and Rose McIver are also guest starring. Buckley potrays flamboyant choreographer Gaston, who eventually replaces Jason Dohring as Logan Echolls in Hansen’s detective procedural. McIver is playing what is described as both a “Skank With Attitude” and a “Horny Mourner".
Wesley Chan, Philip Wang, and Chris Dinh will also make appearances in the series, as well as The CW's president Mark Pedowitz and Thom Sherman, The CW’s head of development.
Play It Again, Dick
premieres the week of Sept. 15 on CW Seed.
