The cast of Veronica Mars never ceases to amaze. Not only were they able to Kickstart their own movie, thanks in part to their rabid fan base (known lovingly as Marshmallows), but yesterday they were able to help out another Kickstarter as well.
For those of us who grew up in a certain generation, LeVar Burton, who many know as Geordi La Forge from Star Trek: The Next Generation, was also the host of the popular children’s series Reading Rainbow. It’s been off the air since 2006, but in 2014, Burton started a campaign to bring it back in digital and app format. Reading Rainbow didn’t just make their goal… the campaign made TRIPLE its goal in three short days.
One of the perks of the campaign was a live read with the cast of Veronica Mars. This took place Saturday, June 28 at the Los Feliz Charter school for the Arts. Cast members who participated included Veronica Mars herself, Kristen Bell, Enrico Colantoni (Keith Mars), Jason Dohring (Logan Echolls), and Percy Daggs III (Wallace Fennel).
You can check out all the festivities in the gallery below. It includes the kids that took part in the event, as well as each cast member taking turns reading to them. Along with Burton, all of them seemed to be having the time of their lives.
