Kristen Bell

Kristen Bell
Played: Snarky sleuth Veronica Mars
Availability: Yes, otherwise, there's no point

As we said, Bell is the crucial element to the movie, so the shoot will revolve around her schedule. The pregnant star is due to give birth this spring, and then she'll have some time before production gets under way for the third season of her Showtime series, "House of Lies." Otherwise, her other project this year, Disney's animated "Frozen," requires only voice work.

'Veronica Mars': Where Are They Now?

The "Veronica Mars" movie is getting made, thanks to the generosity of fans, who pitched in over $2 million on Kickstarter to fund the movie. Creator Rob Thomas has the money, but now comes the hard part: scheduling.

As he acknowledges on the Kickstarter page, "One of our biggest challenges is coordinating schedules. We only have a few weeks to shoot and most of our cast members have additional obligations." Thomas hopes to include as many of the characters from the series as possible, but he can't make any promises.

The most important actor, of course, is Kristen Bell, who plays the titular character. She's definitely on board -- you must have Veronica Mars for a "Veronica Mars" movie -- but what about the others? Let's check in to see what everybody's been up to and what their availability might be this summer, when Thomas plans to film the movie. — Kelly Woo, Yahoo! TV
