Hulu’s Veronica Mars revival has added Clifton Collins Jr. and Izabela Vidovic to its burgeoning cast. Deadline reports that Collins will play Alonzo in the series, a Mexican cartel hitman who’s chosen to travel to Neptune due to his proficiency with English. Vidovic will take on the role of Matty Ross, who after losing someone important to her as a teenager isn’t the type who’s content to sit back wait for justice, reminding Veronica of the girl she used to be.

The two join a cast that includes Kristen Bell (Veronica), Enrico Colantoni (Keith Mars), Jason Dohring (Logan Echolls), Percy Daggs III (Wallace Fennel), Max Greenfield (Leo D’Amato), Patton Oswalt (Penn Epner), and Francis Capra (Eli “Weevil” Navarro), plus recurring players Ryan Hansen (Dick Casablancas) and David Starzyk (Richard Casablancas). The series will run eight episodes.

Spring breakers are getting murdered in Neptune, thereby decimating the seaside town’s lifeblood tourist industry. After Mars Investigations is hired by the parents of one of the victims to find their son’s killer, Veronica is drawn into an epic eight-episode mystery that pits the enclave’s wealthy elites, who would rather put an end to the month-long bacchanalia, against a working class that relies on the cash influx that comes with being the West Coast’s answer to Daytona Beach.
