Veronica Mars’ Ex-Boy Toy Moves to Smallville

July 11, 2006 by  

Aaron AhsmoreFor those of you hoping to see Veronica Mars‘ ex, Troy Vandergraff walking the halls along side Veronica and Wallace at Hearst College this year, sorry, but it ain’t happening.

TV Guide’s Michael Ausiello has reported that Aaron Ashmore, who played Troy during season one of VM, and reprised his role briefly last season, has been cast as Jimmy Olsen on Smallville.

But ya know, now that Veronica Mars and Smallville are both on The CW, maybe there will be a little crossover. I kind of liked the idea of seeing Troy around campus next year.

Oh and diehard Smallville fans, don’t be surprised if Aaron looks a wee bit familiar. His twin brother, Shawn, previously appeared on Smallville as Eric Summers.

    Well that might be enough reason for me to start watching Smallville again. It just wasn’t the same without Bo.

    I might also watch Smallville again. For all of two minutes, but that counts, right?

    I’m surprised they didn’t recast him as Aquaman. After all, he can communicate telepathically with all denizens of the sea.
