‘Veronica Mars’ Cast Talks Sexuality, Stereotypes On SXSW Red Carpet

Interesting note: director Rob Thomas used a Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign to prove to Paramount Warner Bros. that the film would have an audience. Within the first four hours the campaign raised $1 million; within 12, it had met its $2 million goal; by the time the campaign ended, it had raised a total of $5.7 million. The show featured gay and closeted characters but only as minor characters.
