Rob Thomas, who created the television show Veronica Mars, will  deliver on his promise to share big news about the Veronica Mars Movie that was fan-financed on Kickstarter! The record-breaking campaign raised their hoped-for $2 million in less than 10 hours, in large part from fans who had been starved for more stories of the young female sleuth.

Now this week, in addition to to giving details about the official fan event happening as well as of their panel at San Diego’s Comic-Con,  Thomas also shared a very interesting photo from the set.  One that has fans abuzz that The Young and the Restless star, Michael Muhney (Adam Newman) and the former Sheriff Lamb of Veronica Mars, might be making a return in the movie even though the Sheriff was killed-off!

For some clues to this Zap2it reported on the photo in question, “The picture is pretty simple, a photo of someone’s trailer door. However, the mystery comes with the name written on a piece of tape attached to the trailer, Sheriff Lamb.   Marshmallows will remember that Sheriff Don Lamb (played by Muhney) was killed in the third season, after being hit in the head with a baseball bat.

Zap2it speculates stating about the photo and what it means, “So, is Muhney returning? If so, how do they explain this one away? Is it something as simple as a flashback scene, or is it a case of Zombie Sheriff Lamb? A very plausible explanation could be that Lamb’s little brother or sister is now Sheriff of Balboa County, where the show is set.   

It won’t take long to find out for sure, as Thomas promises to explain the photo Wednesday (July 17).   At that time, he’ll also unveil a special website just for Kickstarter backers.  Then, of course, there’s Comic-Con on Friday, when all of the main players will take the stage in Hall H to greet their fans and show off the first footage from the movie. There will be a second chance to see the cast and watch pieces of the movie at a second event, organized by Thomas, Friday night at the Horton Plaza Regal Cinema in San Diego.”

In addition, according to the L.A. Times, Rob Thomas has signed on to co-write two Veronica Mars books. The first will be about an adult Mars and pick up where the movie leaves off.   Vintage, the publisher which will be putting out the books, hopes that fans will be equally hungry for books about Veronica Mars. The television show, which starred Kristen Bell, ran from 2004-07 and was canceled despite pleas from avid fans.

So with Veronica Mars having a renaissance, do you hope Sheriff Lamb is alive and well? In a flashback? Would you like to see Michael Muhney n in the motion picture version?  Are you a fans of Veronica Mars?  Share your thoughts below!

A day or two after the movie was announced, I tweeted MM and asked him if he had been approached. He tweeted me back (which was kinda cool!) and said that he was not approached but that he was very happy for the cast and crew. Things definitely could have changed since then, but at least initially, he was not in the script.

Yes! Michael Muhney has been weird on the topic of VM. He tweeted early on (like the day VM got to 2 million) that fans should not bug Rob with letters and e-mails begging for Lamb to be back – which made me really want him back all the more.

Yes. I love Michael Muhney in anything. He was great on Veronica Mars and he is even greater on Young and Restless. He is so sexy and talented. Would love for him to return. Yes, Yes, Yes.

I loooooved MM as Sheriff Lamb on VM! My family and I loved this show and can’t wait for the movie. I’d love the books too. Yes to MM as Sheriff Lamb and YES to Veronica Mars! YEAH!

If MM can’t return as Lamb, then they should just leave the character dead. No need to recast this character.

It’s really weird that hollywood is pretty much begging for people to finance their films thru these campaign fundraising efforts. It’s great though that a number of campaigns failed to raise the funds they need for their vanity projects. The worst one has to be music video of zozia mamet from low rated hbo soap opera “girls” w/c has no racial diversity from its cast despite it being ny based. Stupid zozia couldn’t even proofread her little pitch for funds when she didn’t correctly spell the word privilege. This jewish daughter of playwright and conservative convert david mamet couldn’t spell… Read more »

Corbin Bernsen to Reprise His Role of Arnie Becker in ‘LA Law’ Revival Pilot

Corbin Bernsen (Father Todd, The Young and the Restless) and the son of Y&R’s late great Jeanne Cooper (Katherine Chancellor) has signed on to reprise his signature primetime television role of womanizing lawyer Arnie Becker in the upcoming LA Law revival pilot.

This makes Corbin the co-lead of the series alongside Blair Underwood (Ex-OLTL) who previously signed on to the pilot to reprise his role of Jonathan Rollins.  ABC has greenlit the pilot.

According to Deadline, it is believed that Bernsen and Underwood will be the only original members of the mid 80’s-90’s legal drama on NBC in the pilot, but more may guest-star if the show gets picked up for a full-season order.

In the premise of the reboot, the law firm of McKenzie Brackman, now named Becker Rollins, reinvents itself as a litigation firm specializing in only the most high profile, boundary pushing and incendiary cases.  The show will feature familiar characters working alongside new ones on the most hot button issues of the day.  As for Bernsen’s Becker, now in his 60’s, look for him to struggle with a rapidly shifting sexual and political landscape.

The original LA Law ran for eight seasons from September 15, 1986 to May 19, 1994 on NBC.

So, what do you think of Corbin taking on the role of Arnie Becket in a revival of LA Law? Would you be intrigued to check out the show if it makes it to series? Comment below.

Justin Hartley Voices ‘Superman’ In New Animated Feature ‘Injustice’

Here’s yet another role that Justin Hartley was born to play, but this time he’s doing it with a twist! Hartley is playing the man of steel, Superman, in the new animated feature from DC Comic and Warner Brothers titled Injustice.

However, being that it’s animated, fans can hear Justin’s voice as Superman.  This is the third superhero role in Hartley’s career having played Green Arrow on Smallville and then Aquaman for a proposed series from the same team.  Of course, soap fans love him for his roles on Passions (Fox Crane) and The Young and the Restless (Adam Newman), while primetime audiences continue to love his portrayal of Kevin Pearson on This Is Us.

In this new animated featured inspired by the popular video game, things go very wrong for Superman, when The Joker tricks him into murdering Lois Lane!

Justin spoke to TV Insider about taking on the legendary super hero via voice-over and shared what was the appeal for him to do. Hartley expressed: “I loved the arc of the character. I love the way it started and how you get behind him. You go, ‘This is very cool to see him at home and nesting and having a good time.’ And then all hell breaks out and I loved the idea that they wrote this guy flawed and this idea of Superman not having all of the answers… and sometimes, the answers that he has are outrageous. That’s a fun character to play.”

Injustice is out tomorrow on October 19th on 4K, Ultra-HD Blu-ray Combo Pack,Blu-ray, and Digital.  Check out a trailer for it below.

So what do you think of Justin as Superman? Comment below.
