What would a “Veronica Mars” movie be without V’s tech-savvy female bestie Mac? A bummer, that’s what.
Well, bummer averted. Creator and executive producer Rob Thomas announced on Wednesday (June 12) that Tina Majorino was on board to reprise her character Cindy “Mac” Mackenzie for the upcoming film.
As he’s done with previous announcements surrounding the returns of cast members Percy Daggs III, Chris Lowell and Francis Capra, Thomas revealed Majorino’s return through an e-mail to the Kickstarter contributors who’ve made the film a possibility.
“I wrote Mac for Tina, and Tina only,” Thomas writes. “Veronica needed a female friend, and a Q to her Bond. Tina felt like just the sort of girl that Veronica would like and respect. I couldn’t be more pleased that she’ll be with us for the movie.”
The Neptune High class reunion is shaping up to be a a complete cast homecoming. Are there any original cast members whose returns haven’t been announced yet that you’re hoping for?
