Sex Bomb: Neptunesite Talks To Ryan Hansen
Interview conducted by Craig Byrne - NeptuneSite Webmaster

The third season premiere of Veronica Mars airs on Tuesday, October 3 at 9PM on the CW. One of the most popular characters, Dick Casablancas, is back for the third season, and Ryan Hansen continues to bring him to life.

Neptunesite's Craig Byrne caught up with Ryan this summer at the Comic Con International in San Diego for some new interview material. The interview follows. Our questions are in bold, answers are not. In the interview, Ryan talks about the first two seasons and offers some hints about Season Three. Be warned, he does talk about the resolution to the Season 2 mystery.

What was your reaction to hearing that your character's name was Dick Casablancas?

I didn't understand it, especially because when I did it, I had a word, and I'm like "Why does this guy who is saying a word, have a full name like Dick Casablancas?" I thought they were trying to be funny, like maybe they knew someone who had that name, but come to find out, he has a whole family. I guess they had something behind it, obviously, but I thought it was the craziest thing ever. I've never had a name like that on a show.

Will you get to interact with your stepmother [Kendall Casablancas] this season?

Negative. I don't think I am. I really don't think so.

Are they going to address what has happened to Cassidy?

Yeah. I kind of deal with it, and you kind of see me drinking a lot. He [Dick]'s definitely feeling - he actually has some feeling, so he's feeling his brother's death, I think.

How is shooting for the new season going so far?

The first time you see Dick, he's in a speedo, and he's back in full effect. I was a little nervous about hopping in the Speedo, because there's like a hundred extras and they're all female. I'm dancing, and it's pretty ridiculous. I was nervous, but it's funny, and it's cool.

Is there anybody that is on the show that you haven't really gotten to interact with that you haven't been able to?

I guess I did have a couple scenes with Francis, not too much... I would love to work more with him, and I'd love to work with Rico. He's amazing.

Have you seen the online following that Dick Casablancas has?

I've heard a little bit about it. I haven't actually seen it, but my friends have shown me some clips, and I've seen a little music video called Sex Bomb that's edited to a music video about Dick. [Sings] Kinda funny. It's cool.

At what point last season did you figure out that Beaver did it?

Gosh. I think it was really maybe two, three weeks before we shot it. we got a little bit of a hint beforehand, and then we got the script and I was like, "Wait a minute! That's my little buddy! That's my bro!" It's crazy. I think it's great for the show, but personally, like, Kyle's my buddy. I didn't want to see him go, but it's a great way to go. I mean, he went out - he did so rad that episode.
