enrico-colantoni-veronica-mars-movieVeronica Mars‘ P.I. pop is officially on board for his daughter’s big-screen debut.

The Rob Thomas-driven project announced the casting — which was hinted at with the actor’s appearance in the fan-funded project’s launch video in March — via Twitter Thursday.

Colantoni joins his former castmates Kristen Bell and Jason Dohring, who have already signed on to the project. The grassroots movie has raised nearly $6 million, thanks to pledge-happy fans who wanted to see the tiny blonde one back in action.

Since Veronica Mars was cancelled in 2007, Colantoni’s TV work has included Bones, Flashpoint and Person of Interest.

  • Awesome. There would be no Veronica Mars without Keith Mars!

    That was a stupid comment, since he’s her father. I realize that now.

  • Yay! Now, can we finally get them to reveal that Meg’s death was faked?

  • If 2 mil were enough for one 90 – 120 movie, with six they could have made three movies, like a six hr mini series. That would have been cool. More material, more story.

    • Not how it works. Two million would have made a boring movie, 6 million will let them make the movie they want.

  • Loved VM until Bell became a bit more mainstream. Or maybe its being married to that douche husband of hers. Either way, a movie I once would have been stoked with has become — meh.

    • sorry to hear that because 6 million dollars worth of the american people have spoken!

      • Don’t get me wrong, I will still go see the movie. Just not nearly excited as I would have been when Bell was more an unknown and I didn’t know how obnoxious she was IRL.

  • Can they please get Tina Majorino confirmed for this? I can’t picture a VM movie without Mac!

  • as if there was any doubt he would return. Enrico has been almost as vocal a supporter as Kristen.
    .
    But still, glad to see it official!!

  • It wouldn’t be a real Veronica Mars movie if Keith Mars aka Enrico Colantoni wasn’t in it. Great news!
