'iZombie' to stage a 'Veronica Mars' reunion
Ryan Hansen has landed a guest-starring role on The CW’s midseason drama iZombie, EW has learned exclusively.
Based on the DC Comics property, the new series stars Rose McIver as Liv, a med student-turned-zombie who works in the coroner’s office to gain access to the brains she needs to eat in order to keep her humanity intact. Using the memories of the people whose brains she digests, she now helps solve homicide cases.
Hansen will play Carson McCone, a charming, uncomplicated golden boy and pro snowboarder who is paid handsomely to put his face on things. He is cocky, living large and currently having an affair with a marketing executive who works for the company that endorses him. Here’s a guy who’s got a lot to lose, and he’s not about to give up any part of his perfect life.
Hansen’s casting marks a reunion with Veronica Mars creator Rob Thomas, who is executive-producing iZombie with Diane Ruggiero-Wright, Danielle Stokdyk and Dan Etheridge. Hanson will next be seen on NBC’s Kate Walsh comedy Bad Judge, and you can watch Play It Again, Dick right now here.
iZombie will premiere midseason on The CW.
