Joss the Testy Car Rental Manager! Yes, Joss makes his primetime real face debut in the Veronica Mars episode airing Nov. 9th and the Ask Ausiello column has a photo. Warning: numerous spoilers about other shows as you scroll down through the column.

Oh my Jesus, the episode is called "Rat Saw God"? Haaaa. Rob, you crazy kid, you.

People weren't kidding about his having lost a lot of weight. And he's so cleaned up! Hee.
I thought the episode title is Rat Saw Dog. And I'm not seeing a Joss picture.

Scroll down to this "Question: I love Veronica Mars and it's all your fault. I never thought I'd enjoy a show about a young blonde chippy in high school solving mysteries, but you were right it's fabulous! That said, give up the scoop, er, poop! Mellie"

In his response is a link to the pic :)

That's what IMDb has, but the caption on that photo has "Rat Saw God," which is more likely, given that the title of Rob's first novel was Rats Saw God.

Your friendly neighbourhood web-geek. :)
Aha! Thank you!
Poltier-Cow, I thought it was a dyslexic version. I swear I saw it written that way somewhere.

How come I can't for the life of me find that question?

Speaking of Joss pics, anyone know where I can find pics of him at the UK Serenity premiere?

Oh I can see the question, and picture now! And thank you NickSeng for posting the picture; I'll look forward to seeing Joss on Veronica Mars.

What's the name on his ID badge? looks like Doug something.
electricspacegirl - some photos from the London Premiere can be found here.
It looks like Doug to me too, Mr. Universe. Can't read the last name for the life of me, though.
He's looking just wonderful. I haven't watched more than a few minutes of VM, but I am so looking forward to this episode.
What, no polyester sportcoat? Let's hope the tie is a clip-on, at least.

Can't wait to see Joss in all his cranky glory. I first thought Danny or Donny on the nametag, but after some sharpening Doug looks more likely. Maybe with Assistant Manager underneath? Being the designated crapcatcher between customers and upper management fits with the harassed look.
Cool. I was looking for a promo pic of Joss in VM yesterday.
Is there nothing this guy can't do? Soon he will be writing, directing, financing, casting, starring, singing and making the tea. The rest of Hollywood will be out of a job. I think HE should be Wonder Woman.
My mind just went to a scary place, Poster Boy. Visions of a star-spangled Joss, gold bracelets and all. :)

I'll be in my bunk.

Petrie, maybe? :)
This pic is great. Can't wait for the live action version.

Hmm, no change there then. Sounds pretty much the same job description as being a director to me :)

This pic is great. Can't wait for the live action version.


I hope there is going to be an action figure.
Aww. He looks so adorable. =)
Does anybody else think Joss looks about 20 in that picture?
He does look damn young. Yay for Joss on VM :)
Good grief, a reference to an Atom Egoyan film. How esoteric is that? I haven't seen his latest film, Where the Truth Lies. And many Americans will not see it since it has an NC17 rating, I believe.

Yeah, young Joss! That "Joss" looks like his first job after high school. I gotta get me in some shape like that . . .
From http://epguides.com/VeronicaMars/:
27. 2- 5 26 Oct 05 Rat Saw Dog
28. 2- 6 2 Nov 05 Nobody Puts Baby in a Corner
29. 2- 7 9 Nov 05 Ahoy Mateys!

So is Joss in 2-7 (Nov. 9) or in 2-6 (I thought I'd heard he was in the 6th ep) or in 2-5 (Rat Saw Dog... God... Whatever)? I'm confused.

ETA: I see imdb's listing differs:
"Blast From the Past" Episode: #2.5 - 2005
"Rat Saw Dog" Episode: #2.6 - 2005 (Joss Whedon ... Douglas)
"Nobody Puts Baby in the Corner" Episode: #2.7 - 2005
"Ahoy Mateys" Episode: #2.8 - 2005
That just adds to the confusion, I think. =)

There is nothing like a good mystery, jam2!
Joss does look young here. But then I remember at the Comicon someone pointed out that he lost weight, hehe. Man this should be funny. Only just saw Kevin Smith do his cameo on last week's episode. This show sure is loved by some of the right peeps....

Season 1: Who killed Lilly Kane?
Season 2: What's the order of the damn episodes?

Anyway, my guess is imdb has it right, with 2.6 being "Rat Saw Dog" with Joss in it, but it seems to me that puts the airdate at Nov. 2, not 9. Also, I think "Dog" is right, more of a takeoff on the "Rats Saw God" title.
Nov 2 is a rerun of the first episode of the season
Thanks! That makes sense. Over and out.
Joss looks great, although with the shirt and tie as opposed to his usual clothes, I am reminded of Angel's nightmare when Spike is the hero in "Soul Purpose" and he is relegated to mailman.
Does anybody else think Joss looks about 20 in that picture?


I was thinking the same thing. It don't even look like him!
Awwwww. He looks so adorable.
RavenU, that link didn't work. Email me at electricspacegirl at gmail dot com.
I call dibs on the new book: The Joss diet. Run till you injure at least one knee and munch much lettuce. The result? Lose weight and approximately 1/2 your age. It's a best seller.
A little off topic: we missed episodes 2 and 3 of this season. For ep2, the sat receiver inexplicably jumped to station 625 five minutes into the show. Ouch! For ep3, we were all sick with a flu bug and forgot to put the tape in the VCR.

We haven't watched any of Season 2 since we just got the season 1 DVDs and were working our way through those. Anyone got a pointer on where we can find the missing episodes?
dcubed, drop me a line if you don't get any domestic offers, which I'm sure you will.
Caroline, as always, you are awesome.
It's Rat Saw Dog. The 'Rat Saw God' under the picture seems to be a shout out to the Joss is God followers.
Hey!! You guys can't fool me -- that's not Joss! That's Doogie Howser! (He must have flunked out of med school.)
He looks just like Angel in "Soul Purpose", heehee
