Sarah Michelle Gellar Too Old for ‘Buffy’ Movie

Sarah Michelle GellarSarah Michelle Gellar thinks she's too old to star in a Buffy the Vampire Slayer movie.

The 36-year-old actress, who played teen heroine Buffy Summers in the sci-fi TV series between 1997 and 2003, doesn't foresee her classic TV show spawning a movie spin-off like Veronica Mars as she worries she wouldn't be able to pull off the daring martial arts stunts now she's older.

"I'm a little old now. I feel like Buffy would have a wooden stake walker. I'm not quite sure how that would work," she said.

The Crazy Ones star also admits she has her reservations about a big-screen adaptation of the series as Buffy originally started out as a critically panned, camp 1992 horror movie starring Kristy Swanson. Buffy was [already] a movie. See, I think people forget that. Buffy was a movie first, and I don't know if you guys know this, but it didn't really work! I see you laughing at me over there, but it kind of didn't work. We spent our whole first year or two apologizing for the movie. So, I think it would be an incredibly different pressure," she explained.

Fox Hypes Up Joss Whedon’s Dollhouse

Cast of Joss Whedon's Dollhouse

Feeling quite guilty that I haven’t come across the Dollhouse trailer until now, I felt like I should make up for it by doing Fox a favor and spreading the love!

The trailer for this fall’s sci-fi drama (which you can check out after the jump) has been out and about on YouTube and select TV spots, getting many pretty excited about its premiere. After all, it is  Joss Whedon’s first series since Firefly, which went off the air back in 2003 (surprisingly with the same network his new show is on).

Dollhouse, starring former Buffy the Vampire Slayer (BTVS) favorite Eliza Dushku, focuses on a clandestine, illegal operation carried out by agents who have their memories and personalities completely erased after each mission. Dushku plays Echo, one operative who slowly starts to learn more and more about where she works over time—she becomes a known flaw in the system, if you will.

The series premieres in January on Fox, right before 24 in the Monday 8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT spot.

Long-Awaited Buffy the Vampire Slayer Reunion

BTVS Reunion

It has been nearly five years since that fateful May night when BTVS fans witnessed the end of their beloved TV series. The following years, fans have intently watched as their favorite characters have branched off to new projects, leaving little hope of a BTVS movie, which so many “Buffy” lovers have longed and hoped for. Unfortunately, there are still no concrete plans of a movie, but fans have the Paley Center for Media (formerly the Museum of Television and Radio) to be eternally grateful to—they have announced a reunion on Thursday, March 20th at the historic Cinerama Dome in Hollywood, CA!

UPDATE:  No Charisma Carpenter for ‘The Apprentice’

Charisma CarpenterOkay, Buffy fans—I have some good news and bad news to report.

Bad news first.  Despite their earlier report, TV Guide now says Charisma Carpenter will not be participating in the upcoming season of .

The good news?  Carpenter actually has better jobs lined up for herself.  In addition to a one-episode stint on Fox’s , she’ll have a recurring role on the new ABC drama, .

Assuming Big Shots even lasts that long—you can expect Charisma’s run to start November 1.

‘Buffy’ Star On Board For Celebrity Apprentice

Charisma CarpenterWhile it’s doubtful a retooling of could bring back Season One ratings, NBC keeps plugging away on next season’s production.  As reported, will be pulling a stunt out of the bag of tricks for his next outing. This time around, the apprentice pool will be comprised of camera-desperate celebrities.  (What exactly would they win anyway? The chance to stay for free at his next hotel?)

For fans, this ratings ploy may give them at least one thing to care about:  Charisma Carpenter.  According to TV Guide, the Buffy the Vampire Slayer star will be competing to get in Trump’s good graces.  Given Donald’s inappropriate tendency to comment on his ‘attractive’ candidates, Carpenter (also a former Playboy subject) could make it far in the competition.  But I’m just hoping her inner-Cordelia will surface to kick monster butt the next time he makes a creepy remark about his daughter.
