Interviews

Jason Dohring Talks LoVe & More
Interview conducted by Craig Byrne - NeptuneSite Webmaster
January 2007

Next our list of VM actors we caught up with at The CW's night of the Winter 2007 TCA Press Tour was Jason Dohring, who has played Logan Echolls on Veronica Mars ever since the beginning.

No real spoilers follow, aside from some talk about the season's final 5 episodes and discussion of the Logan/Veronica material in Season 3's first arc.

What do you feel is the source of the conflict between Logan and Veronica?

I don't know, but there sure is a tension, isn't there? I think it's more along the lines of trust. You know what I mean, if there can't be trust in a relationship... and I don't know. It's such a big issue, trust. It's like, where were you? Where were you? I was nowhere. Why didn't you tell me? And just such key things, like why can't you just trust me, or more importantly, let me be who I am. I just am that way, and to some degree, he has changed, but [he's] still on the rocky side, you know. Of course, that's probably how he'll always be.

Do you think things might get better between them?

Yes. Just going through so much experience together, brings understanding. So all these things, me saving her life and her helping me so much, even the bad experiences become "I start to get you."

Do you think that Logan and Veronica take each other for granted?

I think he definitely takes her for granted. I don't know if I can answer it the other way around, but I'm a solid guy. She should like me.

Are you excited for the second half of the season?

I am very excited, man. I just heard tonight that they're going to do the five stand alone episodes. I think it'll be cool; I know that some fans weren't as excited about it, but I have faith in Rob, and I hope that he'll bring some cool stuff, and I think it'll be a good chance of pace [toward the end]. I think you'll be able to really get hard into stuff, without having to restrain everything for five episodes. Just like bam, bam, bam. He can do really do that very effectively. Jammed so much in with so many other loose ends, he's just a master at that.

And a curiousity about the season in general: What do you think of the new Season 3 opening credits?

I like 'em. I like the noir stuff. I mean, me in front of a nudie bar with Dick. Can you go wrong?
