‘Veronica Mars’ News: Jerry O’Connell is the New Sheriff of Neptune
'Veronica Mars' is currently filming and about to make an appearance at Comic-Con 2013 this Friday, but the all-star cast keeps growing. The latest addition is Jerry O'Connell, who will be playing Sheriff Lamb. But not that Sheriff Lamb.
As TV Line is reporting (and as he says in the video), O'Connell will be playing Sheriff Dan Lamb, who's brother Don Lamb (played by Michael Muhney) was also a Sheriff, a jerk, and who died in season three. But even though O'Connell's playing a new character, he's very similar to his brother as creator Rob Thomas described him as “a new Lamb brother I hope you love to hate” in his most recent email to the Kickstarter contributors.
The movie is already jam-packed with stars as Ken Marino, Martin Starr, Max Greenfield, Tina Majorino, Ryan Hansen and Krysten Ritter have all been confirmed, while James Franco may also make an appearance. The ‘Veronica Mars’ movie also includes return appearances from Francis Capra (Weevil), Brandon Hillock (Deputy Sacks), Kevin Sheridan (Sean), Jonathan Chesner (Corny), Sam Huntington (Luke), Amanda Noret (Madison), Daran Norris (Cliff), Chris Lowell (Piz), Percy Daggs III (Wallace), Jason Dohring (Logan), Enrico Colantoni (Keith) and of course, Kristen Bell (Veronica).
We'll have more on the 'Veronica Mars' movie this week as we'll be at the Comic-Con 2013 panel.
