Greenfield, who currently stars as TV's most lovable d-bag Schmidt on Fox's "New Girl," did a Google Hangout interview with Gold Derby and a fan asked, "I need more Deputy Leo in my life. Will you return for the 'Veronica Mars' movie?" (Below at the 13:21 minute mark.)

"You know it!" Greenfield replied. "I will be there -- so will Deputy Leo. I'm really excited about it. You know, it's one of those few occasions -- I think I'm going down for a day -- where you're working on something where everybody's just so excited to be there, everybody is gonna be going full force on this project. It's gonna be like a fun reunion. You really wanna go in there and do some really solid work because, you know, obviously, people put up their own money to see this. I think everybody who's playing a part in this thing has a responsibility, which is fun and exciting."

Greenfield first appeared as the sheriff's new Deputy Leo D'Amato in Season 1 of "Veronica Mars," which aired for two seasons on UPN before its final third season aired on The CW. Eventually, Leo became a romantic interest for Veronica and quite an immoral member of the force. "Veronica Mars" creator Rob Thomas previously said he imagines Deputy Leo is now "a detective for the San Diego Police Department."

Bell, Colantoni and Greenfield reunited earlier this year at a hockey game. Check out the photo below!
