As seen in the reel premiered earlier this year, “Veronica Mars" probably isn’t a film built for that level of scrutiny. What it is built for, as seen in the new featurette (via Empire), are arguments about which beau is better for Kristen Bell’s retired sleuth.
Released yesterday, the four-minute-long video highlights the love triangle at the center of the film (of the entire short-lived series, really) of Bell’s Mars, all-around swell guy Piz (Chris Lowell) and the passionate and hot Logan Echols (Jason Dohring).
