Ed Begley Jr. takes the dean job on Veronica Mars

ed begley jr.Alright, I stand corrected -- there now may be hope for me to find the dean of Hearst College more than mildly interesting. Fellow Mars fanatic Michael Ausiello of TV Guide has landed some juicy details about who's taken the role, now that Michael McKean has had to turn it down -- none other than fellow improv-erific Ed Begley Jr.. Begley's appeared in A Mighty Wind, just as McKean has, though you've no doubt known him for his roles in Arrested Development, St. Elsewhere, and too many more to mention. OK, I feel better now.

Ed Begley Jr. first came to my notice when I was a teen and big on character actors. Since I enjoyed his father's work so much back then, I wanted to see what the namesake was like as an actor.

First thing I saw him in was a short film based on Shirley Jackson's "The Lottery". Like "The Wicker Man" and "The Other" and "The Lord Of The Flies", I found it too disturbing to ever watch again.

And after that it was his role as Cathy's deaf boyfriend on 'Mary Hartman, Mary Hartman'. I've been enjoying his work ever since, so it's just an added bonus to watching the third season of 'Veronica Mars'.
