Veronica Mars star Jason Dohring is sitting down with ETonline to talk about reprising his role as bad boy Logan Echolls for the upcoming fan-funded film. So, what about Logan makes him a 'dream character' for Jason and how was his reunion with the cast? Watch the video above to find out.
Devoted fans of the Veronica Mars TV series, which ran from 2004 to 2007, can pat themselves on the back for raising the money to make the popular show into a movie. Last April's record-breaking Kickstarter campaign, started by the show’s director Rob Thomas, brought in over $5.7 million, making it the third highest-funded project in Kickstarter history.
The film picks up several years after where the TV series left off, with former teen detective Veronica Mars (Kristen Bell) now living in New York City as a law school graduate and dating 'good guy' Stosh 'Piz' Piznarski. After a call for help from her ex-boyfriend Logan Echolls, who's accused of murdering his pop star girlfriend, Veronica gets pulled back to her hometown of Neptune, California to help solve the case. Being around her former flame reignites complicated feelings between the two of them, while her visit home is just in time for her high school reunion.
You can expect to see a few other familiar faces in the movie as well, like Dax Shepard, Jerry O'Connell, Jamie Lee Curtis, Justin Long, and rumored is James Franco as himself!
Veronica Mars is in theaters Friday, March 14.
