I love watching Veronica Mars. What can you tell me about the actor who plays Veronica's father? He's terrific.

You're not the only one who thinks Enrico Colantoni, who plays a struggling private investigator on the popular UPN TV series, is fun to watch. He was named one of the "10 Greatest Scene Stealers" in a recent issue of TV Guide. Born in Toronto and a graduate of Yale University's prestigious School of Drama, Colantoni played a fashion photographer on the NBC sitcom Just Shoot Me, has made a string of TV guest appearances (Hope and Glory, NYPD Blue, Law and Order), and gained a cult following for his role as the leader of a squid-like alien species in the sci-fi series Galaxy Quest. He lives in Los Angeles with his wife and two children.
