Video: Jerry O'Connell Introduces Himself as Sheriff Lamb in 'Veronica Mars' Movie


Creator Rob Thomas casts the 'Jerry Maguire' actor in the new role of Dan Lamb, the 'amoral' brother of Don Lamb and the new sheriff of Balboa County.

"Veronica Mars" has cast an actor to portray a new character in the movie version of the UPN/CW series. Creator Rob Thomas officially introduces Jerry O'Connell as Dan Lamb, the new sheriff of Balboa County. It turns out that Dan is the brother of Don Lamb, Veronica's arch-rival who was killed during season 3 of the series.

"A few years ago, Adam Scott [Mr. Rooks depicter on the series] invited me to the premiere of 'Piranha 3-D'," Thomas writes to Kickstarter backers. "The performance in that movie that I couldn't get over was Jerry O'Connell's take on an amoral, coked up and soon-to-be penis-less smut peddler. I just kept wanting to get back to scenes of Jerry chewing scenery."

Thomas adds, "So ... when it came time to cast the amoral older brother of Don Lamb as the new sheriff of Balboa County, I lit up when Jerry's name was raised. I'm pleased to tell you that Jerry O'Connell has joined 'Veronica Mars' as Sheriff Dan Lamb, a new Lamb Brother I hope you love to hate."

O'Connell has introduced himself as the character through a video posted on Youtube. The Henry of "Burning Love" also takes the opportunity to thank all backers for supporting the movie, which is currently in production.

Thomas has recently recast Leighton Meester's role Carrie Bishop with Andrea Estella of Twin Sister. A San Diego Comic-Con panel for the film is set for Friday, July 19.
