The confirmed cast continues to grow, and this evening, I’m pleased to announce not one, not two, but three more characters who will be joining us as we return to Neptune:
Brandon Hillock, as the long-suffering Deputy Sacks,
Kevin Sheridan, as chronic ne’er-do-well Sean Friedrich, and
Jonathan Chesner, as aspiring horticulturist Corny.
A Message From Brandon
Greetings, Mars fans!
I could NOT be more excited to return to Veronica Mars. I have to thank Rob for personally casting me in the show, and giving me my first big break ever. And now, again, for bringing me back! So thank you Rob, and Kristen, and most of all, the fans! I would not be here if it wasn’t for all of you.
As for Deputy Sacks: the last time we saw him, he had just made his first kill trying to save his partner and boss, Sheriff Lamb. Alas, he didn’t make it in time. I think that does something to a man. Will we see a different Sacks in this film? I can’t tell you that. But I can tell you one thing that won’t be different: the ‘stache. Sacks rocked a mustache before it was cool, and he sure as hell ain’t about to give it up now.
Thanks for giving me another round as Sacks. I can’t wait.
“I refuse to believe that Sacks is dead. I think he faked his death so he could be a top secret consultant with the FBI for their international manhunt for rapist, kidnapper, murderer, karaoke butcher, and horrible text perpetrator Duncan Kane. His handler at the FBI: Agent Jeff Ratner. Either that, or Sacks is now running The Castle full time.”
“Deputy Sacks’ death affects me so much. In my head-canon, he was feeling guilty over Don Lamb’s death and he had a depression but finally moved on and decided to clean up the corruption in the Sheriff Department, but he died instead for his cause. It’s my head-canon, but I think it’s close. I hope Keith will solve his murder.”
