The cast of “Veronica Mars” will be getting together again for a spinoff web series “Play it Again, Dick”, which will revolve around Ryan Hansen’s fan-favorite character from the series, Dick Casablancas.
The web series was announced in January by “Veronica Mars” creator Rob Thomas, and has recently completed filming. With footage in the can, Buzzfeed has revealed who of the “Veronica Mars” cast makes an appearance — and it is pretty much everyone.
The web series revolves around a fictionalized Hansen using the recent “Veronica Mars” buzz to get a spinoff going. The cast returns to their roles, but the series also has them throwing wrenches into the works of Hansen’s master plan.
Most of the cast, including Kristen Bell, Jason Dohring and Enrico Colantoni will be playing their “Mars” characters as well as skewed versions of themselves. Kyle Gallner, Ryan Devlin, Christopher B. Duncan, Francis Capra, Daran Norris and Percy Daggs III also pull double duty.
Chris Lowell and Ken Marino will appear in the web series only as fictionalized versions of themselves, while Amanda Noret and Lisa Thornhill will play only their characters, Madison Sinclair and Celeste Kane.
Robert Buckley and Rose McIver will be new faces in the “Veronica Mars” family, though they both star in Thomas’ “iZombie” series.
Safe to say that Thomas is taking meta to a whole new level with this one.
“Play it Again, Dick” premieres the week of Sept. 15 on CW Seed.
