Hey, remember that time Jessica Chastain was on "Veronica Mars"? No? We'll show you
Two-time Academy award nominee, and Golden Globe winner Jessica Chastain is basically flawless, yes?
She’s talented, smart, and an all-around amazing person. And these days it seems like her time is mainly filled with bouncing from Oscar-worthy film to Oscar-worthy film. However, there was a time – BELIEVE IT OR NOT – when this A-list actor spent some time on the small screen.
And not just on any show, either, but on our favorite ’00s super sleuth series, Veronica Mars.
The Season 1 episode, entitled “The Girl Next Door,” featured Chastain as Veronica’s troubled, pregnant neighbor, Sarah.
(Warning: Spoilers here if you ever plan on watching the episode.)
In the episode Sarah’s troubled single-mom-to-be status becomes a mystery when she goes – DUN DUN DUN – missing. Lucky for her, Veronica (Kristen Bell) gets on the case STAT and discovers all kinds of crazy things, including Sarah’s diary/sketchbook.
But without giving away TOO many details, let’s just say it gets ~pretty dark~.
Even with a small, guest part like this, Jessica was already showing great promise with her acting chops.
