Patty Hearst to guest star on Veronica Mars

veronica marsThe most famous kidnapping victim ever will appear on, and then disappear from, Veronica Mars. Heiress Patty Hearst will play the granddaughter of the founder of Hearst College (the fictional university on the show). Patty's character, a member of the Board of Trustees, will mysteriously disappear the night before a big vote regarding the university's future. The episode airs during ratings, November 21. Hearst has made a number of guest appearances on shows such as Frasier, Boston Common, and Son of the Beach.

Eh. I like Veronica Mars, but if they're really scrambling for ratings, I don't think the power of Patty Hearst is going to help them much. I'm more excited about Ed Begley, Jr.

Kind of tip-toeing up to that spoiler line there I think.

"Heiress Patty Hearst will play the granddaughter of the founder of Hearst College (the fictional university on the show)."

That is casting news, but...

"Patty's character, a member of the Board of Trustees, will mysteriously disappear the night before a big vote regarding the university's future."

That is giving up what will most likely be an important plot point.

And since I am being nitpicky, I think every episode airs during ratings and you probably meant that this episode airs during sweeps.

That is very odd, or oddly appropriate, casting. Frankly, though, I doubt that the larger population of Veronica Mars viewers would even remember who Patty Hearst was.

Wow, That's super weird, because I was just reading an article that mentioned her and her kidnapping. Then I head on over to TV Squad, and there she is agin. lol
