With Rob Thomas revealing that the Veronica Mars movie will have an official panel at San Diego Comic-Con, with more details to come, there is slated to be a handful of announcements coming in the next week regarding the highly anticipated feature film. While filming has already begun, Thomas teased that there were a few casting announcements he still had yet to make. Well, it turns out that one simply couldn't wait as one of the favorite recurring characters from an ABC Family drama smash has shared that he'll be crossing paths with our returning super sleuth.
Switched at Birth star Ryan Lane has revealed to fans on Twitter that he has shot an appearance in the upcoming Veronica Mars Movie.
Effectively, he joins a cast that includes Kristen Bell, Jason Dohring, Enrico Colantoni, Ryan Hansen, Tina Majorino, Francis Capra, Percy Daggs III, Daran Norris, Chris Lowell, Max Greenfield, Amanda Norret, Sam Huntington, Christine Lakin, Brandon Hillock, Kevin Sheridan, Krysten Ritter and Jonathan Chesner.
Details on Lane's role were not made available and it's aunclear how large of a role he'll have within the film. However, Lane is thus far a rare entry in the cast list as he is one of the only fresh faced actors not reprising a role from the original series.
Since we last saw her, Veronica departed Hearst College to Stanford and then progressed from Stanford to Columbia Law School as she's now starting to interview for jobs at big law firms in New York City. Over the year, she's kept in touch with Keith, Wallace, Mac and more but hasn't seen Logan or her town of Neptune in over 10 years. However, both come calling as Logan's pop-star girlfriend is found murdered and Logan is seen as the prime suspect, which leads him to turn to his ex-girlfriend for major help.
While there is an obvious past between both, Veronica will be in the arms of a boyfriend who is said to be a familiar face, but whether or not she'll wind up back in Logan's by film's end remains to be seen. Upon her return, Neptune High comes calling as well with a 10-year reunion just on the horizon.
Veronica Mars is slated for release in Early 2014.
