In response to the reports of Long on the “Veronica Mars” set, Thomas first warned those who had not yet been spoiled to stop reading. Then, he sent out the following to backers of the film:
“This week, those photos caught an actor on set while he was shooting an unannounced cameo. Please understand: if I had intended for the cameo to be revealed before the movie came out, you’d have heard it first. In this case, we wanted it to be a fun surprise.
If you’ve avoided the news, it still might be. For the rest of you, I apologize. There’s not much we can do to stop photographers when we’re shooting in public. However: since I didn’t get to tell you about the cameo first, here’s an exclusive detail that we didn’t share yet: the actor who appeared on set this week will appear in the movie in the role of Drunken Wingman.”
Thomas then proved this statement with a photo of Long’s trailer.
Interestingly, Thomas posted another photo of a trailer. This one, belonging to an unidentified actor on the film, bore the affectionate nickname, “Vapid Tool.”
