Veronica Mars' Jason Dohring says Hollywood fight scenes are "scrappy"

Jason Dohring says Hollywood fight scenes are "scrappy".

The 31-year-old actor - who will reprise the role of Logan in the big screen adaptation of 'Veronica Mars' - admits he might "wind up on the ground" in a scene which he is filming.

Talking to collider.com, he said: "I've never been in a fight, proper. I've been hit a couple times, just by a friend who was very upset or push and pull. But it's scary, man. I was watching some fights leading up to this, because you see acting fights, and then you see a real fight, and you're like, 'Dude, that's different. That's ugly.'

"Like, there's a lot of uncertainty, and in Hollywood it's just like you hit me, I hit you. It's scrappy, you could wind up on the ground, there's a lot of misses -- and I think we're gonna have something closer to that in the scene we're gonna film."

Although Dohring was reluctant to say why they were filming a bust-up he admits he stepped in when titular character Veronica Mars is in trouble.

He added: "There's some mistreatment of Veronica. That's not acceptable, etcetera."
