Axel-In-Charge: Extending "Secret Wars," Excitement for a "Totally Awesome Hulk"
Good news, Veronica Mars fans. BuzzFeed reports the entire cast will return for The CW’s quirky digital spinoff Play It Again, Dick.
Announced in January, amid the excitement for the Kickstarter-funded movie, the eight-episode web series centers on Ryan Hansen’s character Dick Casablancas, only in the most meta way possible: As creator Rob Thomas explained it at the time, it’s a comedy about Hansen attempting to capitalize on the renewed interest in Veronica Mars by attempting to launch a Dick Casablancas spinoff.
To that end, BuzzFeed reports, many of the Veronica Mars cast members will appear as both their characters and fictionalized versions of themselves. Returning are: Kristen Bell, Jason Dohring, Enrico Colantoni, Percy Daggs III, Daran Norris, Francis Capra, Kyle Gallner, Christopher B. Duncan, Ryan Devlin, Chris Lowell, Ken Marino, Amanda Noret and Lisa Thornhill.
They’ll be joined by two of the stars of Thomas’ adaptation of iZombie: Robert Buckley will play a choreographer named Gaston, who replaces Jason Dohring as Logan in Hansen’s version, while Rose McIver pulls double duty as “Skank With Attitude” and “Horny Mourner.”
Play It Again, Dick debuts the week of Sept. 15 on CW Seed.
