Fans of Grey's Anatomy will get a special treat in the forthcoming Veronica Mars movie — the Kickstarted big-screen continuation of the cult-classic CW series — when Tina Majorino (aka dearly-departed intern Heather) reprises her Mars role of tech whiz Mac.
And we can get a glimpse of her new role in a new clip from the movie — check it out below!
As the scene begins, Keith Mars (Enrico Colantoni) seems a bit envious of his daughter's professional success. Turns out Veronica is a hotshot New York lawyer, while Keith is still just getting by as a private eye. V tries to downplay the disparity with some self-deprecating lawyer jokes.
Then Mac shows up — rocking an awesome pompadour — along with Veronica's other high school bestie, Wallace (Percy Daggs). Our favorite marshmallow immediately notices that her buddies are looking a little too good for their lunch date.
"When number one daughter was young, her skills were sharp like blade of sword," Keith quips, chiming in. "Now brain dull like blade of plow."
Turns out, Mac and Wallace are dragging Veronica to their high school reunion. And, just like that, she's sucked back into the merciless caste system of Neptune High and all of the drama therein.
If the gang runs into Wallace's ex Jackie (Tessa Thompson) at the reunion, Tina will be sharing the screen with the actress who played a niece of the man Heather died trying to save — i.e. Richard (James Pickens Jr.).
Yep, Hollywood often seems like a pretty small town, folks — perhaps even smaller than Neptune, California.
Veronica Mars hits select theaters on March 14.
