Veronica Mars' Jason Dohring Joins The CW's Ringer: Hot for Teacher?

Jason Dohring is returning to his old haunt, The CW.

The Veronica Mars alum has landed on Ringer, the network’s buzzy new drama-thriller, EW.com reports.

Ringer stars Sarah Michelle Gellar (Buffy the Vampire Slayer) as Bridget, a troubled young woman who assumes the identity of her wealthy twin sister Siobhan. Dohring will recur as Mr. Carpenter, a teacher at the New York City high school that Siobhan’s stepdaughter attends.

Dohring, who most recently guest-starred on Lie to Me and CSI, also boasts some Buffy-esque connections. He played a vampire on CBS’ short-lived Moonlight, and he shared scenes with two other Buffy alumni — Alyson Hannigan and Charisma Carpenter — on Veronica Mars.

  • Made. My. Day. Like, I’ve been quietly in love with him since VM died, and now I can vocalize it because will be back on my TV! YES!

  • Cool. Loved him on VM. Watched Moonlight only because of him. I will have to watch The Ringer now.

  • YES! I’ve loved him since Veronica Mars and I was so disappointed when Moonlight was cancelled (for several reasons). I’m so happy he’s going to be back on my TV.

  • Oh, Veronica Mars… The way Logan introduced Charisma’s character to Aly’s was pure awesome “Rode hard, meet pulled away wet”. I think I can pretend it’s Logan, being a teacher just like his brother…

    Oh, why did they have to add Jason Dohring?! His new character could never measure up to Logan, & seeing him will break my heart for all that could have been.. but how could I not watch? Who was the idiot that cancelled VM anyway?

    • Just an fyi … it’s “rode hard and put away wet.”

      • Read it again, Meg. Everyone knows the saying, Ella was referring to what Logan said when he introduced his step-sis to his girl-toy…oh for f–k’s sake, if you don’t know what someone is talking about, please don’t correct them.

  • BEST NEWS I’VE HEARD ALL DAY!!!!

    Comment by Jessie – August 29, 2011 02:07 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • Good news, I’ve missed Jason on TV.

    Comment by Deion – August 29, 2011 02:09 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • well i flove Jason freaking Dohring..he is an awesome actor full of charisma and he should be now a movie star, he has everything for it (he is in the same league as a Ryan Gosling imo) but no, studios, movie directors or even showrunners of good shows don’t call him..why ? a mystery for me so now he has this part on a CW show..well i will watch because Jason is on here, so i will be happy to have him again on my screen..and i liked SMG on Buffy and Cruel intentions but this shows seems quite weak and the CW what a horror..i guess i will still watch it for him..but seriously studios, directors give him a chance, give him a layered, challenging role in a well written story for the big screen..the guy has already a following and it will grow..just look at Ryan Gosling he is now the more popular young A-lister..

  • I literally screamed out loud reading just the title of the story! I have loved Jason since VM! I was already looking forward to this show, but regardless of how I like or dislike it now, I will definitely be sticking around just to see JD. He hasn’t been seen since his Lie To Me appearance in 2010. He filmed an independent movie called Searching for Sonny that has a great premise (co-starring Minka Kelly, FNL), but it hasn’t been released yet! I can’t wait to see Logan Echolls, I mean, Jason Dohring on television again!

  • Even more of an excuse to tune in. Yummy!

  • AWWW I may have to watch now… LOVED him in Moonlight and have been looking for him to come back since; but it doesn’t sound like we’ll see him much.

  • I would like to take this oppertunity to thank the CW network for filling their shows with lots of hot guys! I loved Jason on Vernonica Mars so having him join this show made my day! Of course I was going to watch this show because of SMG!

  • Awesome news! This show just gets better and better. Now if only we could some how finagle a VM movie…life would be fantastic!

  • This is exciting! But man, TVLine, could you have found a worse picture of him?

    Comment by Sam – August 29, 2011 04:01 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • Hooray! I loved him on Moonlighting. He was fantastic as the oldest vampire with business sense and was a great friend and ladies man.

  • Delighted he’s back on my screen – definitely going to tune in. But is it just me that is hoping he plays a Loganesque type character, which is probably wrong but I loved LoVe…

  • OMG! I audibly gasped when I saw this!!!
    I wasn’t going to bother with The Ringer, but now it will get a season pass for sure. I am soooo excited to see Jason Dohring back on TV!!!
    Man, I miss VMars.

    Comment by Mandy – August 31, 2011 06:30 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • Thank you for bringing Jason back on TV! I agree with everyone, he’s a promising young actor that needs more screen time. I’ll definitely check this new show because of him. I miss Veronica Mars, him and Kristen Bell have the best chemistry ever. The world needs Veronica Mars the Movie.

  • I hadn’t planned on watching this but now I’ll have to. I adore Jason and love watching him work. So count me in!
