As has become the norm with Mars movie casting announcements, Marino relayed the news to the pic’s backers via a cheeky YouTube video. Unlike his co-stars, however, he addressed fans in character.
Yes, Mr. Vinnie Van Lowe — a wannabe PI and the thorn in Mars Investigations’ side — can be seen below hanging in what looks to be a skeezy hotel room while attempting to get a hold of the man in charge of Kickstarter. He’s eager to get things started and even has a title in mind: “It’s a Vinnie Van Lowe Blow… Or something to that nature.”
In other Veronica Mars movie news, Party Down alum Martin Starr has also joined the flick. He’ll play the all-new role of Lou “Cobb” Cobbler, an 09′er headed back to Neptune for the 10-year reunion.
