When it comes to picking your favorite, there is certainly no shortage of Veronica Mars guest stars to choose from. During her time at both Neptune High and Hearst College, Veronica made her fair share of friends and enemies. Her clientele ranged from wronged classmates to full-fledged adults in desperate need of help - and the show always knew just how to bring out the best in each star who made a special appearance. Some of them even went on to star in other shows like Veronica Mars!
Sure, you probably remember series regulars like Max Greenfield or Krysten Ritter who have since become popular and beloved TV stars. But some Veronica Mars cameos made by big stars were so small that they might have completely slipped your mind. Jessica Chastain, Aaron Paul, and Paul Rudd all guest starred on the cult series. Jamie Chung had a blink-and-you’ll-miss-it type of role, while Joss Whedon graced the screen for a couple of minutes and caused Buffy fans everywhere to rejoice. And that's only the beginning.
Ready to take a walk down memory lane? Here are all the famous people you forgot guest starred on Veronica Mars.
Episode: Season 2, Episode 16: “The Rapes of Graff”
Cera had a small role as Dean, a guidance counselor at Hearst College who partners up with Veronica during an icebreaker exercise because no one else would. He was asked to reprise his role in Season 3, but wasn’t able to due to scheduling conflicts. Fun fact: he appeared in the same episode as Alia Shawkat, who co-starred as his cousin on Arrested Development.Freakin' unbelievable, right?
Episode: Season 2, Episode 11: “Donut Run”
Role: FBI Agent Morris
Morris was one of the FBI agents who tried to track down Duncan Kane after he disappeared with his baby. While the episode is memorable for marking the end of the Veronica/Duncan relationship, Lawless’s presence added a touch of much needed humor in the process. And that’s mainly thanks to lines like this one - “Sheriff, we have interrogated Al Qaeda members at Gitmo. I think we can handle a teenage girl.”Freakin' unbelievable, right?
Episode: Season 1, Episode 6: "Return of the Kane"
Role: Mrs. Donaldson
Lynch played a teacher who was involved in the student body presidential election at Neptune High. Her role was short and sweet, since it turned out her aide, Madison Sinclair (Veronica’s nemesis), was actually responsible for rigging the election.Freakin' unbelievable, right?

He arrives at Hearst to perform a benefit concert, but his backup vocal tapes go missing, so Piz enlists Veronica’s help to retrieve them. While Rudd’s character wasn’t particularly likeable, he did bring Veronica and Piz closer together.Freakin' unbelievable, right?
