‘Veronica Mars’ Movie: ‘New Girl’ Star Max Greenfield Returns as Deputy Leo
Those unfamiliar with ‘Veronica Mars‘ in its original incarnation might be dumbfounded to learn of the now-famous guest stars that appeared over the years, from Aaron Paul (‘Breaking Bad‘) to Jessica Chastain. Now, as filming begins on the long-awaited movie, current ‘New Girl‘ star Max Greenfield has also signed up to reprise his role as Deputy Leo D’Amato.
Then largely unknown, Greenfield portrayed the character across multiple episodes of the first season as a sheriff’s deputy and brief love interest to the titular character. “I think I’m going down for a day,” Greenfield answered in a Google Hangout interview. “It’s one of those few occasions where you’re working on something where everybody’s just so excited to be there, everybody is gonna be going full force on this project. It’s gonna be like a fun reunion.”
Along with recent additions Tina Majorino, Ryan Hansen and Krysten Ritter, the ‘Veronica Mars’ movie thus far includes return appearances from Francis Capra (Weevil), Brandon Hillock (Deputy Sacks), Kevin Sheridan (Sean), Jonathan Chesner (Corny), Sam Huntington (Luke), Amanda Noret (Madison), Daran Norris (Cliff), Chris Lowell (Piz), Percy Daggs III (Wallace), Jason Dohring (Logan), Enrico Colantoni (Keith) and of course, Kristen Bell (Veronica).
