It’s Friday – Time to Party Down!

Since its debut earlier this spring, Starz comedy series Party Down has won me over. I’d even go as far as saying this is, hands down, one of my favourite comedies EVER!

For those who have never seen or heard of Party Down (something that you must remedy immediately), it’s about a group of creative types – actors, screenwriters, comedians – that pay the bills by working for Los Angeles catering company Party Down, under the leadership of recovering addict/budding entrepreneur Ron Donald (portrayed by Ken Marino, best known to Veronica Mars fans as PI Vinnie Van Lowe).

With a talented ensemble cast that includes Lizzy Caplan, Martin Starr, Jane Lynch, Ryan Hansen and Adam Scott, this show easily rivals greats like 30 Rock, right down to the revolving door of brilliant guest stars, which have included JK Simmons, Steven Weber, Molly Parker and even Marilu Henner!

Tonight is the season finale, and Kristen Bell – yes, Veronica Mars herself – guest stars! Here’s a clip:

The Season Finale airs tonight at 10:30 pm on Starz.

Veronica Mars Movie News!

I miss Veronica Mars. It was a brilliant, well-written, well-acted series for the first two seasons. The third season was weak, but there were a few good episodes. It never got a chance to redeem itself.  There has  been talk of a big screen outing for Neptune’s favourite sleuth and friends, and it looks like it’s official!

E! Online’s Kristin Dos Santos reported earlier today that VM mastermind Rob Thomas is about to start writing the screenplay, taking advantage of the extra time he now has with the order for Cupid being reduced to 8 episodes.

The question that’s on everyone’s minds – where will the story pick up? Here’s what Thomas had to say:

“I think it would open just days before Hearst College graduation, so Veronica would be at the end of her college career.”

Thomas is still working out the story, and hasn’t confirmed the return of anyone other than Kristen Bell, although he’s spoken with Enrico Colantoni (papa Keith Mars, currently on the CTV/CBS co-pro Flashpoint) and the very handsome Jason Dohring (Logan Echolls). As long as those three are on board, I’m in! Oh, and I think we definitely need Veronica’s canine cohort Backup.

Will you be hitting the theatre for a Veronica Mars movie? And which cast members are a must for you to check it out?
