Officially Official

Logan Is Officially Back for the Veronica Mars Movie

Now, I haven’t watched any Veronica Mars—don’t worry, Jill has convinced me that I should—but cultural osmosis has taught me that Logan Echolls is a fan favorite in addition to being someone who’s commonly shipped with Veronica. Right? Let me know if cultural osmosis has done me wrong. Anyway, Logan fans, I am so very happy for you, because the “obligatory psychotic jackass” will now officially be in the Veronica Mars movie.

Creator Rob Thomas announced the return of actor Jason Dohring in an e-mail to the movie’s Kickstarter backers, saying:

“We now have three actors officially cast. Veronica. Logan and the waiter who says, ‘Your check, sir.’” [VM fans, help me out. What the heck does that mean?] Don’t worry. We’re busily working on bringing your favorites into the fold. As a Veronica Mars backer, you’ll be the first to know.”

When Thomas shared some basic details about the movie plot a week or so back he explained that Veronica hasn’t seen Logan in the nine years between the show and the movie. Sounds like a recipe for drama.

Veronica Mars fans, what other characters would you like to see return? And also, to get personal for a bit: My “to watch” is insanely long. If you’re so inclined, give me your #1 reason I should bump VM to the top of it. Five words or fewer. Bring it on.

    The “your check” thing is a backer perk. Someone that paid a few thousand gets a speaking part.

  • Jason Seas

    I am assuming the waiter comment is related to the single kickstarter pledge level that included a speaking line in the film.

  • Mairead

    Because Mars lives in Neptune.
    Logan and Veronica are LoVe

    Here’s your reason to watch VM first:
    Smart heroine wins without superpowers.

  • Rebecca Pahle

    I have no idea what that means, but it sounds intriguing.

    VMars is his bankroll (I mean, he hasn’t done all that much since then), so of course he’d be in it!

  • crosberg

    (Verionica) Mars lives in Neptune (California) and in season 3 drives a Saturn. One of the best meta-lines in the show.

  • crosberg

    He’s been in a few other TV shows…none of them lasted as long as VM, but he does have a career outside the show. And from what I understand, most of the “core group” is doing this at a highly discounted rate of what they would normally ask for in contract.

    I checked his IMDB page before I commented. The longest was 16 episodes, compared to VMars’s 64, and most listings are just one ep.

    Rebecca, you absolutely should watch it. It’s one of the best, wittiest TV shows ever.

    But don’t watch season 3. Just save yourself the headache.

  • crosberg

    I think you’re conflating length of run with income, which might (emphasis on might, I have no idea) be incorrect. I assume he made more per episode on shows like Moonlight (again, I could be wrong). All I was trying to point out is that he has a perfectly viable and profitable career outside of VM. For sure his success is based on the foundation that VM built, but that doesn’t mean (as you implied) he’s not capable of making money outside of it. The guy was on Supernatural and did voice work for a video game, both of which have a wider and more numerous audience than VM ever did.

    C’mon girl, Jill told you to start watching when the kickstarter first happened. Seriously, what are you doing with your life, go watch the pilot NOW!!!!! Once you watch you’ll understand, you too will be a crazy fangirl. Just drink the kool aid.

  • Nicole Ronquillo

    Noir with snarky, smart heroine. Boom.

    Really is my all time favorite show. And soooo underrated!

  • John Wao

    Best female character since Buffy.

  • Jennifer Corwin

    It’s as addictive as seasons 1-4 of The West Wing.

  • Anonymous

    Because when the show is at its best, the snappiness of the dialogue is up there with a good Aaron Sorkin script.

  • Jesika

    Joss Whedon is a fan.

  • glyssix

    “Veronica Mars, she’s a marshmallow.”

    or, more seriously,

    Class warfare, girl detective, badassery

  • Jarrod Bolin

    Stick with the first two seasons. The third was pretty awful, especially in the shadow of the first two seasons full of greatness.

  • nathan B

    The thing about the waiter being cast is due to the fact you get to be in the movie if you pay an enormous amount of money to the Kickstarter. You play a waiter with that particular line.

    So, obviously, someone paid that amount and is “cast”.
