It’s Official, Logan’s Back for ‘Veronica Mars’ Film

As the effects of the Veronica Mars Kickstarter campaign spread far and wide, we’re bound to have a lot of these updates in coming weeks. But that doesn’t make them any less exciting!

Veronica Mars - Logan EchollsAnd so we’re happy to say that even though it was unofficially confirmed before, it’s now official. Jason Dohring is going to be reprising his role as the guy you love to hate, Logan Echolls. I can hear the cheers of the LoVe fans from here.

In a private message to backers of the Kickstarter campaign, Thomas quipped that “We now have three actors officially cast. Veronica. Logan and the waiter who says, ‘Your check, sir.” Thomas has expressed interest in bringing back most of the shows original cast, even writing a high school reunion into the story in order to justify it, but when the campaign was launched, only star Kristen Bell could be confirmed due to Warner Bros. strict rules in allowing the campaign to go forward.

But with filming scheduled to occur during Bell’s hiatus from her current TV series House of Lies this summer, contracts for more cast members are bound to be announced in the days to come. Thomas encouraged fans “Don’t worry. We’re busily working on bringing your favorites into the fold,” Adding to Kickstarters contributors that “As a Veronica Mars backer, you’ll be the first to know.” I think we can all agree that after Veronica herself, Logan was the right choice to bring on board next.

I just hope he hasn’t grown out of those shell bead necklaces since we last saw him.

You’ve still got 9 days to contribute to the Veronica Mars Kickstarter. And Thomas opened it up to $1 donations yesterday, so give a dollar!
