"Veronica Mars" news

Vote for Kristen Bell
We all know Kristen Bell should have been an Emmy nominee and winner this year, but sadly she wasn’t. So to make up for the ridiculous snub by Emmy voters, go vote for her in the first-ever Media Village awards. We can all show Kristen some love and, hopefully, help her take home the award for Outstanding Actress in a Drama Series that she so richly deserves. If you don’t think Bell should score this honor, I defy you to watch this outstanding clip and not give this gal your vote.

Season 2 DVDs now available
Season 2 of Veronica Mars is now available, so get your copy now. You can see a list of the DVD extras here.

"Veronica Mars" fans DVD drive
Fans of Veronica Mars have bought and donated more than 400 sets of DVDs to libraries in all 50 states in all of the top 100 Nielsen markets, according to a press release from the fan club. Well done, Tubers! Fans funded the campaign by donating money through PayPal or by buying fan-created Veronica Mars-inspired merchandise from the Cloud Watchers shop on Café Press. Others purchased DVDs directly and sent them to libraries on a targeted list. The retail value of these donations is just under $25,000. The fans aren’t finished yet, and have set a goal to reach a total of 500 donated DVD sets by October 3, 2006, the day the third season of Veronica Mars premieres on the new CW network.

Casting scoop
Enrico Colantoni (Keith Mars)
is reuniting with his former Just Shoot Me love interest Laura San Giacomo this season on Veronica Mars, according to TV Guide. San Giacomo will guest star in several episodes as “a woman who comes into Mars Investigation and asks Keith to prove that her husband is cheating on her, and the two of them kind of hit it off," Mars’ creator Rob Thomas told TV Guide. "So Keith is really hoping he finds evidence that he's cheating." Those of you who never watched Just Shoot Me, you’ll probably remember San Giacomo as Julia Roberts’ hooker sidekick, in Pretty Woman, who invented a new, and memorable, way to say Cinderella. In other casting news, Patty Hearst — yes, that Patty Hearst — is set to guest star as the granddaughter of Hearst College's [founder], who goes missing the night before an important vote about the future of the school. I’m not sure what to make of this casting move. It’s strange and a little eerie, yes?

Ed Begley Jr. to star – Spoiler alert
Ed Begley Jr.
has been cast as Cyrus O’Dell, the dean of Hearst University, according to TV Guide. He apparently is not well liked in the world of academia, as he is “the college dean most often burned in effigy in the entire nation.” Students, faculty and board members don’t like his methods he often uses to “fix” the universities. He seldom stays more than two or three years at one school, according to TV Guide.
