Rejoice, Marshmallows: Deputy Leo is back!
Emmy-nominated New Girl star Max Greenfield revealed during a Google Hangout with Gold Derby on Tuesday that he plans to reprise his old Veronica Mars role for Rob Thomas’ upcoming crowd-funded movie. Greenfield played Leo, a sheriff’s deputy and a onetime love interest for Kristen Bell’s Veronica, in 11 episodes of the original series, appearing infrequently throughout all three seasons.
“I will be there — so will Deputy Leo,” Greenfield said with a grin. “It’s gonna be like a fun reunion. You wanna go in there and do some really solid work because obviously, people put up their own money to see this. I think everybody who’s playing a part in this thing has a responsibility, which is fun and exciting.”

Greenfield’s announcement comes on the heels of news that ex-Mars stars Tina Majorino (Cindy “Mac” Macknenzie), Ryan Hansen (Dick Casablancas), and Krysten Ritter (Gia Goodman) will reprise their roles as well.
They join a cast that already includes a gaggle of repeat players: Bell, Jason Dohring (Logan Echolls), Enrico Colantoni (Keith Mars), Percy Daggs III (Wallace Fennel), Chris Lowell (Stosh “Piz” Piznarski), Francis Capra (Eli “Weevil” Navarro”), Sam Huntington (Luke), Amanda Noret (Madison Sinclair), Daran Norris (Cliff McCormack), Brandon Hillock (Deputy Sacks), Jonathan Chesner (Corny), Kevin Sheridan (Sean Freidrich), and Christine Lakin (Susan Knight). Production on the film began this week in Los Angeles.
