Showrunner Rob Thomas will continue to add the cast members of “Veronica Mars” in the upcoming episodes of “iZombie” Season 2. The latest “iZombie” casting reports have confirmed that “Veronica Mars” cast members Kristen Bell and Enrico Colantoni are set to make a guest appearance in the upcoming episodes of CW’s crime-comedy drama series. [Spoiler Alert!]

The Hollywood Reporter (THR) exclusively reports that Colantoni, who portrayed “Veronica Mars” character Keith Mars, has landed the recurring role of Lou Benedetto in “iZombie” Season 2. The report reveals that Colantoni’s character is a vice detective whose cases overlaps with the personal and professional life of coroner’s assistant/zombie Liv Moore (Rose McIver).

Colantoni will be making his guest appearance in “iZombie” Season 2 episodes 14 and 17. The 52-year-old Canadian actor now joins the other “Veronica Mars” cast members who guest starred in the zombie-themed TV series such as Daran Norris, Percy Daggs III, Adam Rose and Ryan Hansen.

In an interview with THR, Thomas revealed that he tried to book actor Jason Dohring, who portrayed “Veronica Mars” character Logan Echolls. However, Thomas shared that his intention to include Dohring in “iZombie” Season 2 “went by the wayside” because Dohring has been cast as the recurring character Detective Will Kinney in “The Originals” Season 3.

“We had to cast someone else in that role unfortunately, but it would have been great to have him on the show. There are many people from Veronica Mars and Party Down that I hope to get on the show,” Thomas told THR.

Actress Kristen Bell is also one of those many people from “Veronica Mars” that will also guest star in “iZombie” Season 2. However, Bell’s guest appearance in the CW TV series has a twist because the fans will only hear the voice of the 35-year-old “Frozen” actress.

Entertainment Weekly (EW) exclusively reports that Bell will be doing a voice-over in “iZombie” Season 2 episode 11, titled “Fifty Shades of Grey Matter,” which is scheduled to air on Jan. 26. The report teased that interesting things will happen in the upcoming “iZombie” episode because Liv eats the brain of a young librarian who died from poisoning. The report further revealed that the victim is secretly an erotic fiction writer.

“iZombie” Season 2 will return from its winter hiatus with episode 10, titled “Method Head,” on Tuesday night, Jan. 12, at 9/8c on the CW Network.
