Veronica Mars’ Jason Dohring Joins The CW’s iZombie


Rob Thomas has already brought several Veronica Mars alums into the iZombie fold but I have a feeling fans will be extra excited about this one. Jason Dohring, aka Logan Echolls, will join the cast for Season 3.

Enrico Colantoni, Percy Daggs III, Ryan Hansen, Daran Norris, Adam Rose, and Veronica herself, Kristen Bell, are among those who previously guest starred on The CW’s Vertigo Comics adaptation iZombie. TVLine writes of the new addition:

[Dohring] will recur on Mars creator Rob Thomas’ undead CW drama as Chase Graves, the brother-in-law of Vivian Stoll, TVLine has learned. (For those who need a refresher, she’s the Fillmore Graves CEO who presented a “Are you with us or against us?” scenario to Liv at the close of Season 2.)

Chase — who makes his debut in Episode 8, titled “Eat a Kinevel” — is also a member of the Fillmore Graves hierarchy, meaning Dohring may get his zombie wish.

Dohring has recently been on another CW show, The Originals.

  1. Logan! Gasp. Sigh. I wish I could watch I, Zombie. I haven’t had such a visceral reaction to brain eating since Hannibal. I can’t handle it.

    • Aw man, really? That stinks, totally understandable though. I find the show presents the brain as REALLY fake/candy looking sometimes but there’s other scenes that aren’t so tame.

      • Yeah, I’m surprised too. I’m usually pretty good about that stuff. My dad sliced his hand open with heavy duty shears and sitting with him in the hospital room…it was like they were trying to fill a leather glove with hamburger. I was fine. But brains…Boxing Helena…that terrible new Robocop movie…body horror, in movies/TV, can really do me in.

        Is it at least nothing at all like Veronica Mars, so I’m not really missing out?

        • Nah, not like VM. Good humor but not that snappy, sarcastic stuff.

          • Alas. The movie was a great follow-up and I even liked the two books Thomas wrote (the first is narrated by Kristen Bell and she does a sometimes hilarious but always great job of mimicking her former co-stars).

            Well, if I hit the lottery…ONE DAY.
