Veronica Mars' Enrico Colantoni Joins iZombie Cast


Enrico Colantoni, the fan-favorite actor who played Keith Mars on the cult hit Veronica Mars, will join the cast of The CW's iZombie in a recurring role.

The Hollywood Reporter names Colantoni, who also appeared in Galaxy Quest, as Lou Benedetto, a vice detective whose cases overlap with Liv's personal and professional life. He begins filming this week and will appear in episodes 14 and 17.

Longtime viewers will remember that Clive Babineaux also used to work in vice before transferring to homicide.

Colantoni also appeared in Thomas' Veronica Mars spinoff, Play It Again, Dick, which was produced by CW Seed shortly after the success of the Kickstarter-funded Veronica Mars movie.

Recently, iZombie series star Rose McIver revealed that Veronica Mars leading lady Kristen Bell will play a mystery voiceover role in a future episode.
