What the cast of Veronica Mars looks like today

It's been over a decade since Veronica Mars aired its final episode on television in 2007 after premiering in 2004, but the teen detective show still remains as beloved as ever. Just a few years ago, fans of the series—affectionately dubbed "Marshmallows"—funded a movie just for the chance to see the modern day Nancy Drew in action once again, making Kickstarter history in the process. Still, it's been a while since we've seen our favorite residents of Neptune, California. So what's the Veronica Mars cast up to today?

Kristen Bell

It's safe to say that Kristen Bell's career took off after she landed the titular role on Veronica Mars. After the show wrapped up its third season, she wasted no time at all adding new acting gigs to her resume. In 2008, she snagged the title role in Forgetting Sarah Marshall, playing the ex-girlfriend of Jason Segel's character. Bell also joined the cast of NBC's Heroes as the literally electric Elle Bishop

Bell soon starred in a string of romantic comedies, including Couples Retreat, When In Rome, and You Again. If you're a video game fan, then you may have also noticed her in a few of the early Assassin's Creed games, in which she voice Lucy Stillman, a character designed in her likeness.

Today, however, Bell is best known for her later works, including narrating Gossip Girl, starring in House of Lies, and, of course, voicing Princess Anna in Frozen. Current projects for the actress, who shares two children with husband Dax Shepard, include a sequel to the hit comedy Bad Moms and a second season of The Good Place opposite Ted Danson. Just like Veronica Mars, Bell is always up to something.

Enrico Colantoni

With roles in Galaxy Quest and Just Shoot Me!, Enrico Colantoni already had quite a few acting gigs under his belt when he took on the role of ousted sheriff-turned-private investigator Keith Mars. And after his role as one of the greatest TV dads of our time, he continued to enjoy regular work. 

He soon landed a major role in the CBS drama Flashpoint, playing Sgt. Gregory Parker. After Flashpoint ended, Colantoni went on to snag recurring roles in shows like Person of Interest, Powers, and American Gothic—not to mention playing the lead in the short-lived Canadian medical drama Remedy

Next on his agenda: the TV mini-series Bad Blood, following the life of Montreal mob boss Vito Rizzuto. He's also been tapped to star in season two of Netflix's sci-fi drama, Travelers.

Jason Dohring

Jason Dohring nailed his performance of Logan Echolls, Neptune High's "obligatory psychotic jackass." But, of course, with the show's end, he was forced to say goodbye to the character we all loved to hate. After Veronica Mars, Dohring starred as a vampire with an attitude in the CBS drama Moonlight opposite Hawaii Five-0's Alex O'Loughlin. When that show was canceled after just one season, Dohring returned to the small screen yet again as Mr. Carpenter in Ringer. He later snagged recurring roles as Detective Will Kinney in The Originals and, most recently, as Chase Graves in iZombie—a show produced by Veronica Mars creator Rob Thomas. 

And just what's kept Dohring acting all these years? Scientology, apparently. "[Scientology] saved my acting career," he told Portrait magazine (via BuddyTV).  "I became a professional through Scientology… I understand acting better because Scientology is the study of life."

We're not so sure Logan would have bought into the whole Scientology scene—though it definitely sounds like topic that Veronica Mars would've explored, given the chance.

Percy Daggs III

Percy Daggs III helped Veronica Mars as her BFF, Wallace Fennel, adding some much-needed fun to her life while still assisting her with the dirty work of private investigations. When Veronica Mars ended, Daggs took on a few guest roles in shows like In Plain Sight and Southland. But, unfortunately, his acting career never really got far. One likely reason for Daggs' stalled success could be his growing family. Just a quick look at his Instagram proves that he's been keeping busy as a husband and father to two children. 

However, after making an appearance in the Veronica Mars movie, Daggs started adding to his acting portfolio again. Currently, he stars as Jas Hook in the web series The New Adventures of Peter and Wendy. He's also served as an associate producer for the 2017 documentary Eyes of Faith, which features appearances by the likes of Gwen Stefani, Wayne Brady, and former president Barack Obama.

Francis Capra

Before his days as the leader of the PCHers, Francis Capra was a child star, appearing in films like A Bronx Tale and Kazaam. After Veronica Mars ended, Capra went on to guest star in several shows, including Heroes, Sons of Anarchy, Blue Bloods, and Bones. Most recently, he starred in a few episodes of Guillermo del Toro's The Strain during its first season. 

Right now, Capra seems to be taking a break from acting to focus on other passions like video games. If his Twitter account is any indication, he takes games like Injustice 2 very seriously.

Tina Majorino

Like Capra, Tina Majorino got her start in the entertainment industry at a young age, starring in a number of big-budget films, including When a Man Loves a Woman, Corrina, Corrina, Andre, and Waterworld . Not long before she took on the the role of computer genius Cindy "Mac" MacKenzie, Majorino booked one of her most well-known roles to date—as Deb in the 2004 cult classic Napoleon Dynamite

However, after her time on Veronica Mars came and went, Majorino stuck to the small screen, for the most part. She snagged recurring roles as Heather Tuttle in Big Love, Special Agent Genevieve Shaw in Bones, and Dr. Heather Brooks in Grey's Anatomy. Not one to limit herself, she's also appeared in a couple of music videos over the years, including videos for Lifehouse's 2005 song "Blind" and Pink's 2011 hit "F***in Perfect."

During her spare time when filming Veronica Mars, Majorino also started a band with her brother called The AM Project, though the group seems more like a fun side project than a new career venture.

Ryan Hansen

Ryan Hansen kept almost as busy as friend and co-star Bell since Veronica Mars wrapped, though he's remained under the radar by comparison. He's starred in a number of short-lived series, including Party Down, Bad Teacher, Bad Judge, and Resident Advisors, and has had several guests roles in popular shows like The League and The Mindy Project

After the Veronica Mars movie, he headed a 2014 spin-off web series of sorts called Play It Again, Dick, following Hansen's fictional attempt to create a show centered around his Veronica Mars character, Dick Casablancas. However, Hansen is probably best recognized today as Caroline's ex-boyfriend Andy in the CBS comedy 2 Broke Girls.

Hansen also entered the film industry, appearing as minor characters in movies like Jem and the Holograms, Central Intelligence, and CHIPS —which also starred Hansen's real life BFFs, Bell and Shepard.

Michael Muhney

Actor Michael Muhney has moved on from Sheriff Don Lamb, but he still managed to snag a character with the same cocky attitude. A couple of years after Veronica Mars wrapped, he took on the identity of Adam Newman in The Young and the Restless, one of the soap's many ruthless villains. But the success of his acting career wouldn't last too long. After portraying Adam for five years, Muhney was fired from the show. According to TMZ, young co-star Hunter King accused Muhney of bullying and sexual harassment and claimed that he'd groped her on at least two occasions, causing show execs to terminate Muhney's contract. Muhney, for his part, has denied these allegations, calling it "a salacious rumor."

These days, Muhney seems more interested in spending time with his wife and three children and regularly posts photos of his cycling competitions on Twitter.

Teddy Dunn

Out of everyone in the Veronica Mars cast, Teddy Dunn—AKA Veronica's first love, Duncan Kane—has changed the most since his Neptune High days. While he managed to snag a few small roles in projects like Jumper and CSI: NY, he soon gave up his acting career and dove headfirst into the legal world. After graduating from Boston College Law School in 2013, he became a Litigation Associate at a Philadelphia firm before becoming a law clerk in New Jersey. 

Think any clients recognize him from his UPN days?

Kyle Gallner

Kyle Gallner's acting schedule has only gotten busier over the years. After starring on Veronica Mars as Dick's younger brother Beaver Casablancas, the actor went on to star in TV shows like Big Love, CSI: NY, and Smallville, in which he played the Flash. He also had roles in several films, including Jennifer's Body, A Nightmare on Elm Street, and American Sniper

Most recently, he starred as Hasil in Outsiders, a show following a tough family living off the grid in Appalachia, though the series has since been canceled. Gallner's set to star in the 2018 horror film Ghosts of War, alongside Billy Zane and Theo Rossi—another Veronica Mars alum. 

In December 2015, Gallner married his longtime girlfriend, Tara Ferguson. The couple has two young children together, sons Oliver and Leo.

Chris Lowell

After giving up the character of the lovable music dork Stosh "Piz" Piznarski, Chris Lowell joined the cast of Private Practice as William "Dell" Parker. However, he left the show in 2010 after his character, an aspiring midwife, tragically died—a typical move for a Shonda Rhimes show. 

Lowell's also starred in films like Up in the Air and The Help, as well as the shows Enlisted and Graves. He'll soon be seen in the 2017 Netflix original comedy GLOW, starring Community's Alison Brie as a female wrestler.

Lowell's also gone on to pursue a photography side gig, and he's pretty darn good, judging by his online portfolio.

Tessa Thompson

A series regular in the second season of Veronica Mars, Tessa Thompson has since moved on to bigger and better things. She starred in a number of TV shows, including Grey's Anatomy, Hidden Palms, Heroes, and 666 Park Avenue. However, it wasn't until she snagged roles in the feature films Dear White People, Selma, and Creed that Hollywood finally started to take notice. 

Soon after, she starred in the HBO hit Westworld, playing Charlotte Hale, the executive director of Delos Destinations, Inc. However, her biggest project to date is sure to be the 2017 Marvel film Thor: Ragnarok, in which she plays Valkyrie—the feminist warrior the Marvel cinematic universe has so desperately needed. 

But acting isn't Thompson's only passion. She's also a member of the indie soul band Caught A Ghost, which has provided songs for Grey's Anatomy and Vampire Diaries.

Julie Gonzalo

Even during her stint as the cheerful-to-a-fault Parker Lee on Veronica Mars, Julie Gonzalo was best known for playing the mean Queen Bee in A Cinderella Story. But since leaving the Veronica Mars set, she has gone on to rack up a number of acting credits. Among other roles, Gonzalo acted alongside Jonny Lee Miller in Eli Stone and later co-starred in TNT's Dallas revival with actors Patrick Duffy, Jesse Metcalfe, and Jordana Brewster. 

Next up for Gonzalo is the 2017 comedy How to Pick Your Second Husband First, a movie about a marriage therapist trying to fix her own relationship.

Amanda Seyfried

While Amanda Seyfried was never a regular cast member on Veronica Mars, the show's first season would have suffered without her eerie portrayal of the protagonist's murdered best friend, Lilly Kane. Seyfried, who had played Karen Smith in Mean Girls just one year earlier, later went on to portray Sarah Henrickson in the TV show Big Love. Despite her success on the small screen, Seyfried soon made the leap to Hollywood, starring in movies like Mamma Mia, Jennifer's Body, and Dear John as well as the 2012 Oscar-winning film Les Misérables

One of Seyfried's many projects on the horizon is the 2018 sequel to Mamma Mia, co-starring Pierce Brosnan, Colin Firth, and the iconic Meryl Streep. 

After dating Preacher's Dominic Cooper and Accepted's Justin Long, Seyfried found a partner in actor Thomas Sadoski. The pair tied the knot in March 2017 and soon after welcomed a baby girl into the world.
