    Yeah, Veronica Mars was as much a "high school type show" as Friday Night Lights was a "football show."

    Or as "Sports Night" was a sports show.

    Wait...I'm seeing a pattern here. :(

    Yep, understood. I was actually commenting on Hoffer's post without quoting him. I didn't see that your post had snuck in between.

    Another good Rob Thomas interview, in which he confirms that everyone will be working for scale, but that both he and Kristin will get a piece of the back-end if it makes a profit. There's also a fair amount of spoilers over where he sees the movie going (in terms of where Veronica is at in her life), which is fleshed out far more then I've seen anywhere else. There's also a major Season 2 spoiler for anyone who hasn't watched the series yet.

    To be clear, I see that the article does confirm that both Rob and Kristen are working for scale. It doesn't confirm that for anyone else (mostly because no one else has been signed yet, since the project doesn't officially start until the campaign ends).

    Backend points? Yeah, good luck with that. :)

    But on the amazing chance that there are backend profits, it's kinda odd that they aren't sharing with the rest of the cast.

    Well, the first three episodes seemed like too much teen angst for me. Veronica had her ex-boyfriend who obviously still had feelings for her. She's got a new guy that is after her, but she's not interested, and then she is. Also always seemed to make a big deal about who sits where at lunch. Then there are the clicks and it just amazes me how big a jerks some of those guys are. Maybe the show changes a lot as it goes along.

    Change the setting, and it seems like it could be the plot to pretty much any show on TV, ever. :)

    That depends on what channel you watch.

    But once they do sign, there's no way they're getting anything more than scale.

    Yeah, I don't see Percy Daggs (Wallace) holding out for more than scale. :) With the exception of Tina Majorino (Mac) who is currently on Grey's Anatomy, I can't think of another person in the regular cast who currently has a prominent role on any ongoing series. I mean, you see Ryan Hansen pop up on plenty of stuff, and Enrico will always be working, but no one is going to demand a bigger salary.

    It's not even about whether any of them have the juice to demand more than scale. It's the fact that they all understand this is a low-budget passion project and if the star and creator are working cheap, then everyone has to. They want to be involved because they all enjoyed their time on VM and have real affection for each other and for the subject matter. They'll participate because they want to be involved, not because they're looking for a payday.

    It's a good thing that Lily Kane is dead (yes, Rob, she is DEAD dead, not just TV dead) because Amanda Seyfried would be about the only one that would be hard to get at scale. :)

    So, no new Lily flashback scenes then?

    Alyson Hannigan probably wouldn't work for scale, either. Or Max Greenfield, Harry Hamlin... well, Harry might. :)

    Max probably would as well. Yeah, he's hot right now thanks to his current series, but I think that he probably has enough respect for VM and for Rob Thomas that he would.

    I was watching Mama Mia! (don't judge me!) last night, and was surprised to see her.

    I'm pretty sure most actors would work in pretty much anything if it meant getting a chance to share screen time with Meryl Streep.

    (As an aside, those actors were ballsy, willing to do their own singing. I'm not sure it worked, but I was still impressed with the effort.)
