From creator Rob Thomas, Veronica Mars enjoyed a passionate fan following during its three-season run on TV, and was able to turn that fan support into a feature film, now in theaters and on VOD, to give both the fans and those involved with the show the closure that they didn’t have when it originally went off the air in 2007. In the movie, Veronica Mars (Kristen Bell) has put Neptune and her amateur sleuthing days behind her, instead trading it in for a job at a high-end New York law firm. With everything going her way, of course Veronica gets a call from her ex-boyfriend Logan Echolls (Jason Dohring), who has been accused of murder, and decides to head back to Neptune where she finds herself being pulled back into a life she thought she had left behind.
During this exclusive interview with Collider, actor Jason Dohring talked about how the show took on a life of its own after it ended, when he realized the movie was finally going to really happen, his surprise to learn that Veronica was still with Piz (Chris Lowell), playing a character that successfully transitioned from antagonist to love interest, what it was like to have the fans on set, getting to do some action sequences, his reaction when he finally got to see the finished film, the best part of living in this world again, and how he’d love to continue to be a part of this world, as long as there’s an audience for it. Check out what he had to say after the jump.
