Earlier this year, CW Seed, The CW’s digital video division, picked up the digital “Veronica Mars” spinoff, “Play It Again, Dick.” Focusing on Ryan Hansen, who plays Dick Casablancas in “Veronica Mars,” the series shows him trying to rally the cast to appear in a new show starring him — it’s meta.
Now, the show has an official cast, including most of the full cast from “Veronica Mars,” as well as a couple of new actors joining the group, as first reported by BuzzFeed.
Returning cast members include Kristen Bell, Jason Dohring, Enrico Colantoni, Daran Norris, Percy Daggs III, Kyle Gallner, Francis Capra, Ryan Devlin, Christopher B. Duncan, Chris Lowell, Ken Marino, Amanda Noret, and Lisa Thornill.
Most actors will play both their “Veronica Mars” characters as well as fictionalized versions of themselves. However, Lowell and Marino will only play “themselves,” while Noret and Thornill will just appear as their “Veronica” personas.
Rob Thomas, the creator of “Veronica Mars,” wrote and executive produced the internet spinoff. He’s also bring in actors from his other new series, “iZombie.” The shows’ stars, Robert Buckley and Rose McIver, will guest star in “Play It Again, Dick.”
“Play It Again, Dick” is produced by Warner Bros. It is set to premiere during the week of September 15.
