Thomas said that Dohring, who plays Logan Echolls, is the third actor to officially be cast in the film — the other two are star Kristen Bell and a Kickstarter donor who put up $10,000 to play a waiter who says, “Your check, sir.”

Thomas added, “Don’t worry. We’re busily working on bringing your favorites into the fold.”

After his “Veronica Mars” run, Dohring starred in CBS’ vampire series “Moonlight” and appeared as a recurring character on the CW’s “Ringer.” He also made guest appearances “CSI” and “Lie to Me” — and most recently did a guest spot on “Rules of Engagement.”

The “Veronica Mars” Kickstarter project has currently raised more than $4.4 million, with nine days to go. Production on the film is expected to begin this summer, with a release eyed for early 2014.
