It looks as if it is not only series regulars are coming back for the big screen Veronica Mars film, but guest stars as well.
According to the Hollywood Reporter, the actress who appeared in one first season episode of the series will be reprising her role of Susan Knight in the upcoming crowdfunded film.
Lakin’s lone episode of Veronica Mars came during the 14th episode of season one, titled “Mars vs. Mars.” Susan was as a friend to Leighton Meester’s Carrie Bishop. During the episode, Carrie charges Veronica’s (Kristen Bell) favorite teacher Mr. Rooks (Adam Scott) of having an affair with her. After he hires Veronica, she discovers that he had an affair with Carrie’s friend, Susan, who was pregnant and did not want to press charges.
An interesting turn of events. If Veronica Mars creator Rob Thomas has decided to pull this character out of the depths of the show’s history, I have to wonder if this is an indication that she will play an important part in the story. It’s certainly not worth the time of the Reporter to report on this if she was just coming back for a cameo for fans.
