A Veronica Mars Reunion…Francis Capra Joins HEROES
June 9, 2008 by Kath Skerry
VERONICA MARS favorite bad boy (no, not Logan Echolls…the other bad boy – Weevil) is joining HEROES. According to TV Guide, Francis Capra who is best known for his role as Eli ‘Weevil’ Navarro on the dearly departed VERONICA MARS will be joining the NBC series as an one of those pesky evil doers. The show is keeping tight lipped on details about that character but we do know that his name is Jesse and he will cross paths with Peter Petrelli (Milo Ventimiglia).
It’s no secret that the cast and the writers of HEROES were big fans of VM. I think we’ll see Jesse and Elle (Kristen Bell) share at least a few on-screen moments together. I don’t think they (or we) will be able to resist.
Now I know what you’re thinking. MOONLIGHT is over so why not throw Jason Dohring into the mix? That boy knows how to play evil. But I think it’s a little too weird. I’m all for having Jason back on my TV every week, but it’s just too soon for him to star along side Kristen Bell. Someday though…someday.
Are you VERONICA MARS fans excited about having Weevil back on TV? Do HEROES fans even care?
