Veronica Mars is back, and the cast is dishing on what they would do if they were in Veronica’s shoes.
Veronica Mars launched a decade ago and became an unlikely hit about a teenage detective. Ten years later, fans wanted the story back so much they funded a film through Kickstarter.
Fans everywhere have been anxiously waiting for the film’s opening, and Veronica Mars stuck to its roots. The girl detective returns, older but not always wiser, and finds herself back in the middle of a love triangle. SheKnows caught up with the cast, and they were all eager to share their advice on what to do if caught in that situation.
When it comes to love triangles, actor Ryan Hansen said his advice is one simple word: Tinder. He said, “Just go for it. So I’ve heard.”
Hansen’s character Dick Casablancas is a bit of a womanizer, and Hansen said that isn’t changing soon.
“Dick has grown physically, just not mentally,” he explained. “I don’t know if he has grown that much. He is maybe a little more mature, but not much. But he is still loyal to Logan and loves to party and hang out and surf.”
But if fans think Hansen is the same in real life as his character, they are in for a big surprise.
“I relate to Dick very little,” he explained. “I have been married for 10 years and I have two kids. I don’t know if that is the same track as Dick. But I like to give off that persona.”
The rest of the cast gave their two cents on love triangles as well, and their answers were as different as their characters.
Percy Daggs III, who plays Wallace, said the problem with love triangles is the lack of decision-making.
“The best way to get out of a love triangle is to make a decision,” he said. “Make a decision that is in your best interest and go from there. Follow your heart, of course. Use sense in what is best for you in your life and your future.”
Enrico Colantoni, who plays Veronica’s dad, said his best advice is to stop it before it starts.
“It never ends well,” he explained. “So just sit back and watch it all implode. You can’t tell anyone who to love.”
The two characters involved in the love triangle (besides Veronica Mars/Kristen Bell herself) also had their strong opinions on the topic.
Chris Lowell, who plays Piz, said Veronica Mars would be better off alone.
“I feel like she should just dump both of them and fly solo,” he said. “Find a new guy. Start fresh. Meet somebody new. Don’t keep digging into the past.”
Jason Dohring, who plays Logan, said he is just happy he doesn’t have to deal with it in real life.
“It’s been so long since I’ve had to deal with that stuff, it’s just such a nightmare,” he said. “One of the coolest things about getting married, I was just like, ‘Oh, the game is over.’ And I wasn’t a player or anything like that, but I was just like, ‘cool.’ Do I have to have somebody? Do I not? What am I doing?”
But his advice is similar to his competition in the film — single is best.
“Find a good friend, I would say that would be a good one,” Dohring said. “Because if you have a friend, at the end of the day, you have a friend. In the morning, you have a friend.”
Veronica Mars is out in theaters Friday, March 14.
