The teen mystery-thriller series "Veronica Mars" is turning 16! The show, which featured Kristen Bell as the titular sharp, young protagonist who solves complex mysteries alongside her private detective father, ran from 2004 to 2007. To mark the show's anniversary on Sept. 22, Wonderwall.com is taking a look at where the cult-hit series' stars are today. Keep reading to find out what the Neptune High crew have been doing…
Kristen Bell played title character Veronica Mars, the quick-witted, brave heroine with an intuitive knack for solving crimes.
After her starring role on "Veronica Mars," Kristen Bell's career soared. Following a short stint as Elle Bishop on TV's "Heroes," she hit the big screen opposite Jason Segel in "Forgetting Sarah Marshall." From 2007 to 2012, she took on the titular narrative voice on the hit teen drama "Gossip Girl." In 2013, the actress showed off her vocal chops as Anna in the blockbuster Disney film "Frozen" (and did it again in 2019's "Frozen II"). In a move that excited every "Veronica Mars" junkie, she and the cast reunited for a "Veronica Mars" film in 2014, which was followed by a fourth season in 2019. From 2016 to 2020, Kristen starred on the acclaimed NBC sitcom "The Good Place" as Eleanor Shellstrop, earning a Golden Globe Award nomination for her performance. Next up, she'll be reprising her voice role on the "Gossip Girl" reboot for HBO Max. After nearly six years together, she married actor Dax Shepard in 2013. They welcomed daughter Lincoln in 2013 and daughter Delta in 2014.
Jason Dohring portrayed conflicted bad boy Logan Echolls, Veronica's snarky on-again, off-again boyfriend.
Soon after "Veronica Mars" ended, Jason Dohring went on to star on the short-lived CBS vampire drama "Moonlight." Jason has since guest starred on shows like "Supernatural," "The Tomorrow People" and "Ringer." He also played a parody of his character, Logan, on CW Seed's "Veronica Mars" web series spinoff "Play it Again, Dick." In recent years, Jason's career has continued to ascend with TV roles on "iZombie" and "The Originals." In addition to reprising his role as beloved bad boy Logan Echolls on the 2019 "Veronica Mars" reboot, he's also appeared on shows like "Bluff City Law" and "All Rise." The Ohio native will next appear in the drama "Violet." As for his personal life, the Scientologist has been married to Lauren Kutner since 2004. They share four children.
Ryan Hansen played Neptune's resident rich kid, Dick Casablancas. Dick is Logan Echolls' best friend who has a penchant for bullying and partying.
Ryan Hansen went on to star on another cult favorite, Starz's short-lived comedy series "Party Down." He's appeared on various successful TV shows since including "2 Broke Girls" "Parenthood" and "The Mindy Project." In 2014, Ryan reprised his "Veronica Mars" character in the 2014 fan-funded flick and ws also back for the Dick Casablancas-centered web series spinoff "Play it Again, Dick." He's acted on the big screen in films such as "Hit and Run," "Bad Santa 2" and "Bad Teacher." In 2017, Ryan was cast in the pilot for the buzzy CBS comedy-hybrid series "Real Life." In 2020, he appeared in three films: "Like a Boss," "Fantasy Island" and "Friendsgiving." He's been married to Amy Russell (who happens to be Kristen Bell's real-life bestie!) since 2004. They have three children together.
Daddy Keith! Enrico Colantoni starred as Veronica Mars' private investigator father, Keith Mars.
Since his days as Keith Mars, Enrico Colantoni has kept his TV career going strong. Enrico starred on "Flashpoint" and "Remedy" and landed a recurring role on the CBS show "Person of Interest." In 2019, Enrico reprised his role as Veronica's doting father on the "Veronica Mars" reboot in addition to appearing in the Academy Award-nominated film "A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood." As for 2020? Enrico appeared on HBO's "Westworld" and in the film "Feel the Beat." After "Veronica Mars" wound down, he divorced first wife Nancy Snyder, with whom he has two children, and wed Rosanna Francioni in 2011. They reportedly have four kids.
Veronica's best friend and partner in (investigating) crime, Wallace Fennel, was portrayed by Percy Daggs III.
Ten years after the "Veronica Mars" finale, Percy Daggs III is still best known for playing Wallace Fennel, a role he reprised in the 2014 fan-funded film. Still, he's kept his acting game going! Percy has appeared on "Boston Public," "NYPD Blue," "Southland," "In Plain Sight" and "iZombie." In 2019, he appeared in the Lifetime TV movie "Christmas in Louisiana." As far as his personal life, it's a bit of a mystery.
Chris Lowell portrayed Wallace Fennel's roommate, Stosh "Piz" Piznarski, at Hearst College — the university many of the characters in Neptune attended after high school. He dated Veronica Mars and had his own college radio show.
Chris Lowell has kept the momentum going since playing Piz on "Veronica Mars." From 2007 to 2010, he appeared on the ABC drama "Private Practice" until his character was killed off. His film credits include "The Help" and his own directorial debut, "Beside Still Waters." Chris has also landed roles on a multitude of TV shows including "Enlisted," "Graves" and "Grey's Anatomy." In 2014, he enjoyed his first run in an off-Broadway production of "Jacuzzi." Since 2017, he's acted on Netflix's hit series "GLOW" as Sebastian "Bash" Howard. He was in the 2020 dark comedy "Promising Young Woman" and will next appear in the film "Breaking News in Yuba County." He was last romantically linked to actress Kerry Bishe.
Francis Capra's character, Eli Navarro, was known as "Weevil," the leader of Neptune's local biker gang. Although Weevil is rough around the edges and considers himself an outsider, he's one of Veronica's closest allies.
Before Francis Capra was known for his character on "Veronica Mars," he portrayed Calogero Anello in the 1993 crime drama "A Bronx Tale" opposite Robert De Niro. Since "Veronica Mars," Francis has appeared on many other TV shows such as "Heroes," "Criminal Minds" and "The Strain." He reprised his role as Eli "Weevil" Navarro in the 2014 fan-funded 'Veronica Mars" film and again on the web series "Play It Again, Dick." In 2018, he appeared on The CW's "iZombie" for three episodes. His last well-known romance was with actress Agnes Bruckner in the mid-aughts.
Teddy Dunn portrayed Duncan Kane, Veronica's ex-boyfriend who suffers from bipolar disorder. He had a short-lived but memorable run — his character was written off after season 2.
Following his stretch on "Veronica Mars," Teddy Dunn made guest appearances on "Gilmore Girls" and "Grey's Anatomy." He also appeared in the movie "Jumper" in 2008 — which is also the last time he was photographed on the red carpet. After 2009, he left Hollywood behind: According to LinkedIn, he went to Boston College Law School, served as a legal intern for the prosecutor's office of the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia and the office of the Attorney General of Massachusetts, clerked for a federal judge and worked for a law firm. He's currently an assistant United States attorney in the District of Columbia. He reportedly married in 2017.
