The Kickstarter-funded “Veronica Mars” movie just got another returning cast member. And the world got an incredible, hilarious music video in the process. Ryan Hansen, who played Dick Casablancas in all three seasons of the TV series, will return.
When Ryan Hansen confirms his participation, he doesn’t just say he’s excited. He shows it. With a music video. Released with the news of Hansen’s return on Friday (June 14), the two-and-a-half-minute video should be enough to get anyone pumped for “Veronica Mars.”
Seriously, this is a full on music video, complete with backup dancers, stunts and a special guest. We would expect no less from the great and smarmy Dick.
On the show, Dick Casablancas was the resident d****bag of Neptune High School. A bit goofy and essentially harmless (unlike almost everyone else on the show), Dick mostly existed to be Logan’s (Jason Dohring) bad-influence friend and to be a thorn in Veronica’s (Kristen Bell) side. His family was a pretty incredible mess — multiple crimes, including mass murder and rape, were committed by some of them — but Dick never got past the annoying jerk level.
It was kind of refreshing.
Now that we know Hansen is returning, there aren’t too many notable “Veronica Mars” cast members left. That’s a good thing — production on the crowd-sourced film begins on Monday (June 17)!
