With thrilling rumors of a Veronica Mars movie in the air, it only seems right to check up on our favorite Veronica Mars stars to see just what these Neptuners are up to these days - and just how that may lend their schedules to this possible Mars-tastic film plus what other intriguing things are in store for them.
Kristen Bell - Veronica Mars
Since Veronica Mars wrapped up in May 2007, we've had the fortunate pleasure of seeing our fav snarky detective-playing actress pick up some great roles including the dangerously smokin' Elle on Heroes, the bratty actress Sarah Marshall in Forgetting Sarah Marshall, plus we've gotten to enjoy her narration as the mysterious Gossip Girl herself on the big CW hit, Gossip Girl. So what will she be up to next? GG fans are crossing their fingers for an appearance, while we will definitely be seeing her in the new Star Wars comedy Fanboys premiering this weekend. Other upcoming films include her starring along with Meg Ryan in Serious Moonlight, and hopefully a few more films to come including (oh let it be so!) a Veronica Mars movie!
Enrico Colantoni - Keith Mars
Enrico Colantoni was quite busy before his lovable Keith Mars character, but since then he's also kept in the TV limelight guest starring in CSI, Numb3rs, and Brothers & Sisters. He's currently starring as Sgt. Gregory Parker on the CBS hit series, Flashpoint.
Jason Dohring - Logan Echolls
Since his WB days of playing Logan Echolls, Jason Dohring has popped up in the crazy popular, yet short run, Moonlight as vampire Josef Kostan, buddy and mentor to main character and vampire Mick St. John. Dohring also worked on a 2008 short film, Struck, and will be appearing in an upcoming HBO series, Washingtonienne, developed by Sarah Jessica Parker.
Teddy Dunn - Duncan Kane
During Veronica Mars, since Duncan wasn't always around, Dunn had the time to appear in The Manchurian Candidate, made a guest appearance on one of our other WB favs, Gilmore Girls, and a guest appearance on Grey's Anatomy. Since then, he appeared in the hit film Jumper. He also made a guest appearance on CSI: NY in 2008 and has an upcoming 2009 film, Kill Theory.
Other VM Roles of Note:
Amanda Seyfried, who popped in on Veronica and friends as the dead Lilly Kane, has made some big breakthroughs starting with Mean Girls filmed during Veronica Mars in 2004, HBO's Big Love as Sarah Henrickson, and this past year she starred in Mamma Mia! as Sophie Sheridan. Currently, her IMDB has her working up 5 films for 2009, so my fingers are crossed for some big stardom for this adorable ex-VM ghost!
Francis Capra, the tough-as-nails sweetheart Eli 'Weevil' Navarro, joined Kristen Bell on Heroes as Jesse Murphy for three episodes in the latest Heroes chapter, and has had guest appearances on Friday Night Lights, Lincoln Heights, and Sons of Anarchy as well.
