If you're anything like us, you've been impatiently waiting for the new episodes of Veronica Mars to hit Hulu since the eight-episode revival was first announced. If you're also like us, you've likely been wondering if Ken Marino will reprise his role as sleuth Vinnie Van Lowe in the new episodes. And now we know the answer is YES.
While promoting his new Comedy Central series The Other Two at the Television Critics Association winter press tour Monday, Marino confirmed to TV Guide that he would be in the series.
"Rob Thomas and I were talking about [The Other Two] and how much he likes this show, and I asked him, 'If you love it so much would you promote it,' and he was like, 'Absolutely.' So he put it out there and somebody asked him and he said that I am in it. So I think I can say I am in it. I hope so, I hope I'm not getting myself in trouble, but he said it on Twitter so — if it's on Twitter, it's out there. I might be showing up — cannot confirm or deny."
Wait, hold on. Rob. You revealed this news ... in a reply to a fan on Twitter?
Yes.— Rob Thomas (@RobThomas) January 31, 2019
Come on, Rob. A fan favorite character like Vinnie Van Lowe (and Ken) deserves better than that. After all, it's not like Vinnie is known for being super subtle about, well, anything. So here we are giving this news the attention we think a guy who lives in a van, a man like the one in the video below, deserves.
Although there is no premiere date yet, Veronica Mars is expected to air on Hulu later this year.
