Veronica Mars season 4 gave Marshmallows eight new hours to revisit all their Neptune favorites. Veronica (Kristen Bell) and Keith Mars (Enrico Colantoni) were in every episode and Logan (Jason Dohring) was in most of them, but there was no room for everyone in every episode. There was no room at all for Mac (Tina Majorino) and Dick Casablancas (Ryan Hansen) was only in three.
However, Hansen still had time to attend Hulu’s lunch for the Television Critics Association on Friday. Showbiz Cheat Sheet asked him why he was only in three episodes, and we also got his thoughts about the end, so spoiler alert for Veronica Mars season 4.
Ryan Hansen was busy filming two movies
Veronica Mars originally had a bigger role for Dick Casablancas in season 4, but Hansen filmed the Fantasy Island film and the comedy Unlimited Partners by Tiffany Haddish / Rose Byrne.
“I should have done five episodes, but I could only do three, which is such a shame, but I am so happy to be part of it,” Hansen said. “The show means so much to me.”
A little Dick Casablancas went a long way in ‘Veronica Mars’ season 4
It really felt like Dick was in more of Veronica Mars season 4, because when he was on the screen, they took a lot of miles out of him.
“I was so grateful and I came to the opening, the movie with me and Josh Duhamel,” Hansen said. “The whole thing was so fun and so hilarious. I have to do that dance work at the bar. I loved all the things they gave Dick. I was so enthusiastic. “
Veronica Mars solved the case. Dick Casablancas will be slow to catch up.
The mystery of season 4 concerned Dick’s father, Big Dick Casablancas (David Starzyk). Hansen thinks his character was unaware of his father’s corruption.
“I don’t think he knows,” Hansen said. “I’m going to be honest, I think he’s so involved in the king of the spring break and his film career, or wannabe film career, I don’t think he really understands how corrupt his father is.”
At least there is little concern that corruption occurs in the Casablancas family.
“I wonder if Dick is smart enough for all that corruption,” Hansen said.
The tragedy of ‘Veronica Mars’ season 4 will hit Dick eventually
Big Dick did not survive his last scandal. In addition, the bomber struck one of Dick’s close friends as additional damage. Dick Casablancas was the fun part of Veronica Mars season 4. The next time we see him, he might be in mourning.
“If there is a season 5 and if Dick even returns, he will deal with the loss of his best friend, his father, his brother,” Hansen said, but still couldn’t joke. “Dick takes a beating.”
Dick Casablancas never grows up
Season 4 of Veronica Mars showed most of the Neptune gang that had to deal with adult issues. Keith had a health crisis. Veronica and Logan considered getting married. However, Dick has not changed.
“Yes, it looks like it,” said Hansen. “He’s probably the least changed, but it’s so fitting to see where he is, still as an actor and a party boy. He just never grew up. I think he may be covering up a lot of things.”
