Dohring, whose casting was announced by series creator Rob Thomas, is the third actor to sign on to the project, joining star Kristen Bell and the deep-pocketed supporter who scored the role of the waiter who says, “Your check, sir.”
Dohring’s Logan Echolls is crucial to the plot of the film, which finds Veronica pulled into a murder mystery involving the bad boy’s pop star girlfriend.
The P.I., meanwhile, will be “dating someone” at the start of the movie, Thomas previously told TVLine. However, it’s definitely not her ex, whom “she hasn’t seen in nine years.”
The Veronica Mars Kickstarter project is currently at $4.4 million with 10 days still to go. Dohring, along with fellow VM vets Bell, Ryan Hansen and Enrico Colantoni, appeared in the video announcing the campaign.
