Though it's not an official announcement from Rob Thomas, as most of the casting notices have been, Max Greenfield has confirmed he will be returning for the "Veronica Mars" movie.

Greenfield played Veronica's ( Kristen Bell) love interest, Deputy Leo D'Amato, during the show's first season, though he continued to pop up throughout the series. Greenfield broke the news during an interview with Gold Derby, saying he was scheduled to film for a day on the project.

"I'm really excited about it," Max says, "It's one of those few occasions ... where you're working on something where everybody is just so excited to be there." Greenfield thinks the movie is going to "be like a fun reunion," though he notes part of the excitement is the responsibility to make the project good, as it was funded by the fans of the show.

The "Veronica Mars" movie is currently in production, and series creator Thomas has gone out of his way to incorporate nearly all of the best-known characters from the show. Even those who weren't around in the final season, like Krysten Ritter, have signed on to appear.

You can see Max talk about returning to Neptune in the video below, at about the 13:30 mark:
