Joss Whedon to guest star on "Veronica Mars"

From http://www.whedon.info/article.php3?id_article=11326 :

Did you see what Joss Whedon comments about Veronica Mars?

I did. His extraordinarily generous comments really made my week. I sent him a thank you e-mail, and he sent me back a note that said that, in watching Veronica Mars, heís come to understand, better, the fervor of Buffy fans.

The things he complimented about our show ó the plotting, the dialogue, the relationships, the acting - are all elements Iíve admired in Buffy. Jossí comments actually meant so much to me that I e-mailed my parents the link though Iím quite sure they donít know who he is.

Iíve also put Season 2 of Buffy in my Netflix queue. I think I never let myself get fully-hooked by Buffy for the same reason that I feel a lot of people donít watch Veronica. By the time the enthusiastic word-of-mouth reached me, I felt like Iíd already missed the bus. I was afraid of being so far behind in the mythology that I couldnít follow the ongoing storylines, though I would occasionally see episodes and admire the snappiness, the pacing, the angst.

And then - you heard it here first - Joss has agreed to guest star on the show. Weíre firming up plans to have him play a testy, rental car manager in episode six.

Seems like VM likes to raid the Buffy roster for guest stars. Last year you had Allyson Hannigan, this year I believe we get Charisma Carpenter, and maybe Joss Whedon.

if you have a tivo, or hell even a vcr, record the episodes, and wait for the dvd in mid october, as there is a big arc to the show.

I don't like to jump in shows in the middle, so I will definitely do that. I have to remember to get the premiere if it hasn't passed already.
