Krysten Ritter On ‘Veronica Mars’ Movie: I’m Thrilled To Play Gia Goodman Again

Krysten Ritter is absolutely thrilled to join the cast of the Veronica Mars movie.

Ritter, who has recently had starring roles in Breaking Bad and Don’t Trust The B—- In Apartment 23, played Gia Goodman in Veronica Mars in 2006. She recently announced that she’ll be reprising the role in the new Kickstarter funded movie.

Ritter said: “G-G-G-Gia!!!! I’m thrilled to be reprising my role of Gia Goodman in the Veronica Mars movie!!! It’s gonna be very juicy Marshmallows!!!!! AAAHHHH!!!! Forgive my over-use of exclamation points. Since you can’t hear me squealing, I’m reduced to excessive punctuation. Ha! Veronica Mars has a special place in my heart because it was my first big acting job (!!!!!!) and it was also one of the most lovely on-set experiences you could ever ask for. This will truly be an awesome shoot, not only because we all get to be reunited (can’t WAIT!) but because of the revolutionary way this all was able to come to life! Thank you, thank you, thank you to Rob Thomas, Kristen Bell, Kickstarter, and most of all, to you, our AMAZING FANS, for making it happen. I’m honored to be a part of it!”

Ritter appeared in 8 episodes of Veronica Mars during the show’s 2nd season. The actress will join Kristen Bell, Jason Dohring, Chris Lowell, Christine Lakin, and several other Veronica Mars alumni for the new movie.

Creator Rob Thomas said: “I’m delighted to confirm that Krysten Ritter will be returning as Gia Goodman … Despite the name of her most recent television series, Krysten couldn’t be lovelier to work with. I’m thrilled that she’ll be joining us for the movie.”

Here’s a clip of Ritter and Bell from Veronica Mars.
