AceShowbiz - "Veronica Mars" reportedly adds another familiar face to its cast ensemble. After "He's Just Not That Into You" star Justin Long confirmed to make a cameo appearance in the film, James Franco is now said to be another high-profile actor that will team up with director/writer Rob Thomas.
According to Zap2It's coverage, Oscar-nominated Franco will make an appearance in the Kickstarter-funded pic as himself. A source provides the site with more details about his role, saying that "he'll be one of several celebrities in the movie who have been victims of a hidden camera scam." Even so, the casting news is still not confirmed yet by Thomas.
The production is currently underway, and Thomas recently let Entertainment Weekly publish a photo taken from the Santa Monica Pier set. The latest image offered a first look at returning actor Ken Marino, who plays the antagonistic Vinnie Van Lowe.
Eyeing an early 2014 release, the big-screen version of the UPN/CW series will come to San Diego Comic-Con on Friday, July 19 to debut exclusive footage.
