“Despite the name of her most recent television series, Krysten couldn’t be lovelier to work with,” Thomas wrote in an email to the film’s Kickstarter contributors. “I’m thrilled that she’ll be joining us for the movie.”

Meanwhile, Thomas urged fans to view the video Hansen made about being part of the project. (No seriously, watch it; it’s embedded below, and there’s a choreographed number — featuring Glee‘s Harry Shum Jr. and So You Think You Can Dance‘s Cyrus, Phillip and Marko — and a cameo by co-star Kristen Bell).

Veronica Mars Movie Krysten RitterAlso returning are Brandon Hillock (as Deputy Sacks), Kevin Sheridan (“chronic ne’er-do-well” Sean Friedrich) and Jonathan Chesner (stoner Corny).

They join a cast that already includes former series regulars Bell, Enrico Colantoni, Jason Dohring, Percy Daggs III, Chris Lowell, Tina Majorino and Francis Capra, as well as Christine Lakin (Susan Knight), Amanda Noret (Madison Sinclair) and Sam Huntington (Luke Haldeman).

Hansen’s recent work includes an arc as “Candy Andy” on 2 Broke Girls‘ recently wrapped second season.

  1. Tom Charles says:

    Seriously an update on Duncan would be swell

  2. Stephanie says:

    Dick and Vinnie are musts, and a video thanking the fans with them together would be a huge bonus–Party Down and Burning Love, anyone?

  3. Evan says:

    Obvious ones left are Corinne Bohrer as Veronia’s Mother, Teddy Dunn as Duncan Kane, and the actors playing his parents.

    • LSJ says:

      I think the door on Veronica’s mother has been closed. After what her mother did her and her father and Veronica kicking her out, I’d say its fair to say that that relationship has been permanently severed.

  4. Jake says:

    Still waiting for Ken Marino and Ryan Hansen. Also would be cool to see Alyson Hannigan and Charisma Carpenter making appearances.

  5. guest says:

    I would like to see Dick, Duncan, Trina, Carrie and Kendall return.. but I guess some of them won’t be returning..
    Realistically speaking, I want Dick and Carrie to come back!
    (Seriously, whats going on with Ryan Hansen? It’s weird that there hasn’t been an update for him yet)

  6. Megan says:

    Leo! Dick! Vinnie!

  7. I’m wondering how many of these actors are signing to be part of the overall movie and how many are only going to be in a class reunion scene.

  8. a says:

    I don’t know why he’s waiting so long to announce Ryan Hansen. Unless there’s something going on with his schedule, he’s a no-brainer. He was in the announcement video!

  9. Emily S says:

    Dick must be the final, biggest reveal. A must – he and Weevil (yay!)

  10. Cory says:

    Yay for Krysten Ritter! Love her.

    But geez, is this going to be a five-hour long movie? I certainly can’t imagine all those people being crammed into a 90-minute movie.

    • Josh says:

      Well remember the episode where Veronica finds out who raped her? There were tons of past guest stars worked in(Luke, Beaver, Dick, Madison, Casey, Sean, whoever Leighton Meister, and Meg and Meg’s boyfriend, played)…plus appearances by Logan’s dad, Duncan’s mom..My guess is a majority of them won’t have major scenes put will play into the mystery/reunion and many will be grouped in scenes together.

      My guess the only ones will play a major part are the main cast.

    • Alan says:

      will since its set at a reunion it makes sense that all the background people from that time come back, even if it is just to be there for a cameo.

  11. Josh says:

    Okay…now I am getting worried we still hadn’t heard about Dick but yeah he has to be the final reveal…I’m guessing a very funny video message is coming…

    Gia’s character is going to be interesting considering Veronica and her dad brought her father to justice…and put him on a plane that Dick’s brother blew up.

  12. teddybb2 says:

    Where’s Dick?? Deputy Leo? Carrie Bishop? Vinnie Van Lowe??The guy that joined a ‘cult’ and became super sweet,,,Casey I think?

  13. Ali says:

    Hoping for Duncan’s return. *fingers and toes crossed*

  14. narshkite says:

    Kendall is dead people as are Aaron and the Beave. I am pretty sure you can assume no Charisma Carpenter, Harry Hamlin and Kyle Gallner unless this is going to be a Vampire version of Veronica. Dick and Vinnie are on my most wanted, and maybe Cliff and Trina. Oh, almost forgot Alicia! (I am a softie so a happily ever after for Keith and Alicia would be wonderful.)

  15. Kevin W. says:

    Given the fact that Ryan Hansen was in the kickstarter vid, it’s be weird if he’s not in the movie.

  16. Winnie says:

    Too bad they won’t “go Soap Opera” and make Sheriff Lamb have a twin that Madison tracked down and married… Yes, this is why I would never be asked to write for TV/a movie.

  17. please no jackie. that’s all i ask!

  18. Kate says:

    I’m just watching season one of VM now, so I don’t know his character’s fate, but I love Max Greenfield (Deputy Leo).

  19. Julie Pham says:

    if they are bringing back dead people then they can add amanda seyfried to the movie.

  20. Pat McKenna says:

    Michael Muhney?

  21. Brooke says:

    Dick was just confirmed!

  22. Siobhan says:

    I’m almost certain Max Greenfield will be in it. He said as much soon after the Kickstarter launched. I’m guessing they’re saving Ryan Hansen for last just to mess with us. I’d like to see Alicia and hope she and Keith are together. And since it’s a reunion we have to see Principal Clemmons! I’d love a scene with him and Veronica.

  23. Sue says:

    If they can get Corny, then Bring back Butters! (Unless he is already on the space elevator)!

  24. Andy says:

    We’ve got Dick!

  25. Mari says:

    That was the best video ever!! LOL Love them!

  26. Loni says:

    LOVE the video! Hilarious!

  27. ggny says:

    More that i think about it i would have much rather had them do a 12 episode season on Netflixs or something

  28. Len says:

    Seriously. Enough. Enough eith the Veronica Mars news article every time someone takes even a breath related to the show.

    I’m a huge VM fan, I supported the kickstart. But this posting every single time a person is renewed is beyond ridiculous. The coverage is way beyond what other shows get on this site. Considering the fact to not even a tv show but a theatrical movie about a tv show, makes the coverage even more onerous.

    It’s nothing but a cheap ploy for clickers, and is so obvious it is.

    • Mari says:

      If they’re continuing posting news about the movie is because they’re getting traffic/hits on the articles.
      Please keep posting TVLine. I want to know every single bit of news about this epic movie.

    • Sokratis says:

      Well then just don’t click, the rest of us really appreciate the updates

    • J says:

      A TV blog posting stories about a project that is popular with its readers is a “cheap ploy”? How about “intelligent programming for your readership”?

      • Krystan says:

        Since it is a movie based on a tv show that the people that run this site love, i think they should. Both Michael (who was in an episode of Veronica mars) and Matt donated to the kickstarter and they are huge fans of the show.

    • I can only imagine how much anguish it must cause you to be FORCED to read all these updates.

  29. Kay says:

    D-I-C-K!!!!! Woot woot

  30. mia says:

    Oh delightful!!!! And Corny too! Yay! Though there really wasn’t any doubt Hansen would return, he’s been one of the most vocal supporters. But yay!!!!!!

  31. mia says:

    I’m just so excited for it!!!

  32. Ashley says:

    I don’t know what excites me more: the cast being back together or him using Harry, Chris Scott, Cyrus, Pacman, and Marko in the video! Love my dancers.

  33. gabby says:

    DIIIIICCCCCKKKKKKKK I’m so happy!!!!!

  34. Jared says:

    Ive never watched one episode of Veronica Mars but im gonna need to see this movie!

  35. Et al. says:

    That video was amazing. It was so nice to get some Dick again.

  36. onlyakb says:

    this was so funny!!! can’t wait!!!\o/

  37. Midori says:

    How has Kristen Bell lost so much of her baby weight so quickly!?

  38. Jmh says:

    I have a huge crush on Ryan. And that video made it even larger!

  39. Liz says:

    This is one of the best video I have ever seen. Seriously.

  40. albtrex says:

    Please, please, Duncan!!!!!!!!!! Come back!

    Also Wallace’s mother and Logan’s sister (but they are not a must… Duncan is!!!!)

  41. SMS says:

    These VM videos are honestly the most entertaining funny and hugly funny adverts for the upcoming movie. I can hardly wait. I want the DVD. More More More.

  42. Alichat says:

    Annnnnnnd Ryan Hansen wins the award for best “I’m Back” video! That was fantastic!

  43. Red Jane says:

    that video is a must see… and kudos to Ryan for some crazy dancing and athletic skills…. in addition to his being adorably self-deprecating…

  44. Josh says:

    That’s just Blaze being Blaze:)

  45. waffles says:

    So far it’s a great cast. Let’s hope the script is as exciting.

  46. Meg says:

    Clearly the reason they waited so long to announce Hansen’s casting was so they could choreograph and cast this fantastical video! Well worth the wait…as if any of us ever really thought he wouldn’t be in it anyway!

  47. Eli says:


  48. Mel says:

    Maybe it would just be easier to list who’s not coming back.

  49. Kelly says:

    That is a great video
