The Veronica Mars casting announcements keep on coming with Daran Norris, Amanda Noret, and Sam Huntington reprising their roles in the feature film. Veronica Mars’ fans favorite cast members continue to return in droves with the series making a lasting impression in the actors’ hearts.
Daran Norris portrayed the lovable attorney Cliff McCormack in the UPN series. Cliff served as Keith’s (Enrico Colantoni) faithful friend, a banter partner and accessory for Veronica (Kristen Bell), and Logan’s (Jason Dohring) public defender. Norris has been friends with Thomas since he was three and is housing Thomas as they film the Veronica Mars Movie. Norris is beloved by Veronica Mars fans for his dry sense of humor which is evident in his thank you video to fans, where he appears looking like Harry Potter’s Professor Dumbledore. Norris played Gordy in the Nickelodeon series “Ned’s Declassified School Survival Guide” as well as Buddha Bob on “Big Time Rush.” Norris is also a prolific voice actor.
Amanda Noret played Madison Sinclair throughout the UPN series and was Veronica’s chief high school nemesis. Noret has appeared in short films since Veronica Mars and has been a stay-at-home mom for the past four years. Noret teases Madison’s role in the Veronica Mars Movie saying, “Some things might change with time, but I guarantee that Madison is still up to no good.” Sinclair was a character that Veronica, Mac (Tina Majorino), Dick (Ryan Hansen), and Logan (Jason Dohring) all had significant interactions with so it will be interesting to see her role in the film.
Sam Huntington played Luke, one of Logan’s lackeys during the first season. Huntington was excited to join the cast and stated, “I can honestly say that Veronica Mars changed my life.” Luke’s storyline revolved around his steroid use and Veronica’s methods to help him out. Huntington has since been seen on Being Human as Josh Levison. Luke will most likely show up at the Neptune High ten year reunion however since he was not a major character in the series it is unlikely that he will play a major role in the film.
Did you like Norris’ theories to how the Veronica Mars Movie should go? Are you excited to see Madison Sinclair once more? What do you think Madison has been up to since fans last saw Neptune?
Norris, Noret, and Huntington join Bell, Dohring, Chris Lowell, Percy Daggs III, Christine Larkin, and Francis Capra in the Veronica Mars Movie. There have been no announcements as of yet about Majorino or Hansen joining the cast.
