Another Buffyverse alum has landed on Veronica Mars. Angel's Charisma Carpenter is joining the Emmy-worthy drama this fall as a sexy trophy wife and stepmother to brothers Dick and Beaver Casablancas a role you first read about in Ask Ausiello. She'll appear in at least six episodes. Meanwhile, Steve Guttenberg has also been added to the Mars cast as a Major League Baseball team owner and leading candidate in the local mayoral race. Speaking of Mars, Amazon.com has started taking pre-orders for Veronica Mars: Complete First Season, which will "street" Oct. 11.
