Veronica Mars Season 3 News

With a title like that, I hope I didn’t oversell it, but I do have a good amount of Veronica Mars news to share with you this morning.

First up…Veronica Mars Casting News

According to the ever fabulous Michael Ausiello, we can expect a few familiar faces sauntering about Neptune this year. In the never-ending search for Keith to finally replace the hideous Lianne Mars, the World’s Greatest Dad (besides my own of course) meets a sassy lady from his past. Well, truth be told, she’s not from Keith’s past, but rather Enrico Colantoni’s past.

Laura San Giacomo on Veronica MarsLaura San Giacomo, who played opposite Enrico on Just Shoot Me, will play a Mars Investigation client that might just stick around once her case is solved. According to show creator Rob Thomas, “She plays a woman who comes into Mars Investigation and asks Keith to prove that her husband is cheating on her, and the two of them kind of hit it off,” Rob reveals. “So Keith is really hoping he finds evidence that he’s cheating.” Rob Thomas also said that it was Laura’s friendship with Enrico that convinced her to take the role, which we are told will last several episodes.

Personally, I’m hoping that Laura sticks around for awhile, as Veronica could benefit from a strong female in her life. Rumor has it the new woman in Keith’s life is already sharing important advice with Veronica – “Veronica, you should go for him. You look hot tonight. Don’t take less than $100. Call me when you’re through. Take care of you.”

Patty Hearst to Guest Star on Veronica MarsIn other somewhat less exciting casting news, Patty Hearst will be appearing on Episode 8. Rob Thomas tells us, “She is playing a character close to herself. She’s playing the granddaughter of Hearst College’s [founder], who in our world is a railroad baron rather than a publishing baron. It’ll be similar, but she is not literally playing Patty Hearst.” Yawn. This smells of some serious stunt casting and we all know how has has turned out for VM (*cough* Paris Hilton *cough* Kristin Cavallari *cough*)

    I wonder why so many more people on the east coast donated. Was there some sort of east coast “drive?”
