Veronica Mars

Two more exciting additions to Rob Thomas’s direct-to-disc/digital “Veronica Mars” movie have been announced; Tina Majorino (‘Mac’) and Krysten Ritter (‘Gia’). The “Grey’s Anatomy” and “Don’t Trust the B— in Apartment 23″ stars were outed this week as credit block recruits. Ritter, who also recently signed for Tim Burton’s “Big Eyes” movie, tells Twitter followers “I’m thrilled to be reprising my role of Gia Goodman in the Veronica Mars movie!!! It’s gonna be very juicy. … This will truly be an awesome shoot, not only because we all get to be reunited (can’t WAIT!) but because of the revolutionary way this all was able to come to life! (she’s referring to the Kickstarter crowd-sourcing campaign that funded the movie)”.
