David Boreanaz directs

HOLLYWOOD -- Alan Cumming is not sure he likes having a magnetic personality. It keeps attracting the wrong kind of people.

"My publicist calls me a crazy- person magnet," says Cumming, whose more outrageous screen characters include the game show host of the Spy Kids movies, the alien Gazoo in The Flintstones in Viva Rock Vegas and Nightcrawler in X2: X-Men United.

To illustrate his predicament, Cumming recalls an incident at this year's Sundance Film Festival after the premiere of his musical spoof Reefer Madness.

"It was not just the premiere of the film but my 40th birthday. They had this huge cake in the shape of a cannabis leaf. It was a wonderful, wild party," he says.

He and his lover left the party, only to discover their limo driver was watching porno on vehicle's DVD screen.

"He asked if we wanted to join him for a three-way. It sounds outrageous but that kind of thing happens far too often," he says. "When people approach most celebrities, the most they'll try for is a handshake, and that's usually tentative. Not with me. They'll hug me or put their arm around me to talk to me."

He admits his award-winning stage role as the MC in Cabaret didn't help.

"I was half-nude up there on that stage for eight performances a week, simulating all kinds of sexual acts," says Cumming, who has played a whole gallery of straight, gay and sexually ambivalent characters.

"I guess it's a complement that people think they can touch me and share intimate conversations, but it's also invasive. There are times I want to be anonymous but it just doesn't happen these days.

"People want to take my picture even if I'm just out walking my dog. I was even recognized when I was on holiday last November walking on The Great Wall of China. That was creepy.

"I actually had a near meltdown the night before my birthday. I freaked out about being famous."

Cumming senses his newest role as Loki, the god of mischief, in Son of the Mask, isn't going to tone down his image. The whole idea of a manic mischief maker is bound to appeal to his wilder, weirder fans.

"I can't say no to movies like Son of the Mask because they give me the opportunity to do what I love doing best which is playing multiple characters in the same movie."

But he admits that, as much as he complains about the cost of celebrity, he's got a great life.

"I have so many irons in the fire right now. There's a movie in the works based on my first novel, Tommy's Tale, and my new fragrance line is already in stores. I've also got more film and stage offers than I can handle."

Before the end of the year, Cumming will be seen opposite Sandra Bullock and Sigourney Weaver in the drama Every Word is True and with Ned Beatty and Lois Smith in another drama The Wedding Picture. He is also signed to star opposite Sissy Spacek in Gray Matters, Winnipeg's own Nia Vardalos in Living Neon Dreams and to reprise his role as Nightcrawler in X-Men 3.

There was talk he'd play a gay cabaret actor who coaches a rugby team to victory in Coming Out, but he says that project is "in some kind of limbo.

"Catherine-Zeta Jones is producing through her company and also wanted to star, but I don't know if that one is ever going to get made. I haven't heard anything from Catherine for a while now."

But he's not going to lose any sleep over the status of Coming Out -- he's already a project that could replace it.

"It's called Suffering Man's Charity and it would mark the feature film directing debut of David Boreanaz. I'd get to play this crazy music teacher for the vampire," he says of Boreanaz who played TV's vampire Angel.

Angel S5 dvd interview

David and James it is great to see you both. How are you doing?



So Good


Thanks for talking to us on Celebrity Extra. Ok we’re talking seven seasons of BUFFY five of ANGEL. Why do you reckon it has done so incredibly well?

DAVID BOREANAZ: It’s a lot of seasons.

It’s a lot of seasons.



It’s in the sci-fi horror genre and it’s really lasted the distance what do you think was so special?

DAVID BOREANAZ: Well Joss Whedon was the genius behind this whole thing.

JAMES MARSTERS: It’s good writing.

DAVID BOREANAZ: And tapped into a market that appealed to everybody and the characters, our characters, took off and we just went with it and found ourselves on this crazy ride that was always changing from episode to episode and we just had a ball with it you know.

JAMES MARSTERS: Yeah. On both shows the art direction was fabulous, the cinematography was fabulous, the writing was fabulous, the direction was always good, sometimes very good.

DAVID BOREANAZ: Sometimes it was very bad [laughs].

The acting wasn’t so bad.

JAMES MARSTERS: The actors... We were pretty good.

The acting wasn’t so bad.

JAMES MARSTERS: We tried, we did man. We tried. We would be in the set and I’d be like David how do you do this man? How do you do this? And what did you say?


JAMES MARSTERS: You went ‘horse racing’

DAVID BOREANAZ: Yeah, horse racing. Yeah straight away.


DAVID BOREANAZ: You take the blinders off.

JAMES MARSTERS: And that’s all you said. You went horse racing and I was like ‘yeah man horse racing’. It took me about 30 seconds to go, ‘What are you talking about’.

DAVID BOREANAZ: Take the blinders off and look straight ahead.

So whenever you felt like collapsing in a heap you thought horse racing.

DAVID BOREANAZ: Horse racing. Straight ahead. Marty Jones man, Philly style. No, but its been great. The characters obviously appeal to a specific type of audience as well as a mass audience. I mean BUFFY and ANGEL were two different types of shows. What’s great about ANGEL, especially for DVD’s, is its wide screen format. You can really see the expansion and you can see the way they shot it. It’s great for that kind of format.

JAMES MARSTERS: It looks so much better than BUFFY ever did. BUFFY was filmed in 16mm for the first three years and you know ANGEL were they shooting digitally?

DAVID BOREANAZ: No. They thought about it one time and they decided not to do it.

JAMES MARSTERS: But I remember when I turned on ANGEL and it was in that wide screen format I was like ‘Aw man they get all the good toys over there man.

Proper entertainment. Now if vampires can’t see their own reflection how come you guys always looked so good?


Explain that to me please.

DAVID BOREANAZ: Good question. I haven’t thought of that before.

JAMES MARSTERS: Coz your dead and you don’t change.


JAMES MARSTERS: Your frozen.

But surely you go a little grey around the gills when your dead guys.

JAMES MARSTERS: No that’s the beauty of it. You’rE immortal. You don’t have a sleepy day. But that’s what kind of sucks about playing a vampire. As a vampire you’re not supposed to look sleepy ever, but meanwhile, meanwhile they are working you 12,14 20 hours a day.

DAVID BOREANAZ: And you’re falling asleep.

You forgot to mention a really good makeup artist in your list of things that make this programme work.

JAMES MARSTERS: We don’t use makeup.

DAVID BOREANAZ: Its true the special effects are amazing.

JAMES MARSTERS: We’ve not never worn makeup that’s for wimps man.

DAVID BOREANAZ: Yeah but Dane who did the special effects did a great job for five seasons. He makes some amazing creations on the show.


DAVID BOREANAZ: It was pretty cool.

JAMES MARSTERS: When he used to makeup you he’d be sleeping.

DAVID BOREANAZ: He was that good he could do makeup in his sleep.

JAMES MARSTERS: Yeah well Dane could do it in his sleep after seven years.

Well regardless of whether there was makeup, lack of sleep, too much sleep, whatever you guys looked very good. So well in fact they you have got a legion of fans and you’ve both been on the sexiest man ever list ever, ever. Does that kind of stuff go to your head?

DAVID BOREANAZ: I don’t really think, I mean I’ve always enjoyed doing a work out.

Oh come on! Be honest.

DAVID BOREANAZ: Its part of what comes of being part of this business. You know it’s a humbling thing. It comes with the territory. I thank my parents for having me.

Nice attitude.

DAVID BOREANAZ: And this is what they produced, but no I’m not obsessing about it everyday.

Is it a little bit surreal to see yourself on, you know... you’ve been on a vampire sexiest male vampire list, you’ve been in the people top 50 most beautiful men. You open a magazine and you see that and you kind of go...

JAMES MARSTERS: No. What you do is you go, good publicist! You say thank you Jenny we did it! Coz they know there is a lot of work behind everyone one of those hits. There’s a whole campaign behind every single one of those.

So it’s not just the fans voting for you.

DAVID BOREANAZ: And then you put your glass down and it makes a ring after a while so there’s a ring of water on the bottom of the paper or whatever, their good coasters.

It’s all transient... is that what you are trying to tell me?

JAMES MARSTER: Yeah it is. Television is a weird thing and it gets you famous like that [clicks fingers] and you really can’t take it too seriously. Like in a ‘HARD DAYS NIGHT’ with the Beatles, you can see the look on their faces when they are just starting to experience it and they are not taking it seriously but they are having fun with it.


JAMES MARSTERS: You kind of try and maintain that kind of attitude.

Doesn’t it always eventually get to your head as an actor? I’m not saying you particularly, but I so can relate to what you are saying about people starting out they’ve got a different attitude to 10 years down the line where they are beginning to inevitably believe the hype in some way, shape or form. Do you sense the danger of ever heading into that sort of territory?

DAVID BOREANAZ: Well there’s always the temptation of crossing the line or borders that are uncharted.

JAMES MARSTERS: Celebrity is toxic to the soul.

That’s deep.

JAMES MARSTERS: It just simply is, and the longer someone is famous the worst it gets.

Well how do you find yourself in this? Are you prepared to go the distance or are you kind of going ‘that’s enough for me?’

JAMES MARSTERS: Well you have to build a life that is separated from the whole Hollywood thing and surround yourself with people who are willing to tell you when you are being a jerk.

Do you both have that in your lives hopefully?

DAVID BOREANAZ: I have a beautiful family; I have a wife and a two year-old.

Does your two year-old go, “Dad you’re being a jerk!”

DAVID BOREANAZ: No. The simplicity of being blessed with a child and seeing that is enough to remind you everyday about what life is really about. You know you have your work and your family and those two are definitely separated but as you work you maintain your sanity through your work but your family keeps you afloat.


DAVID BOREANAZ: And that’s what is really important. It keeps you alive.

JAMES MARSTERS: Certainly whether you got the sexiest man thing. It’s nice and didn’t mean to denigrate the fact that the fans vote and that makes you feel good. Coz we work hard for them. I mean Joss just has to write it and man he goes on and then he goes to bed and we are down in the trenches fifteen hours a day making it happen. Basically we are the grunts and we are well paid and they make us look really good, but day to day for real we are working in a non heated, no air conditioned space with no places to sit really except boxes on the floor and it’s dirty and it’s a factory.

You poor pet.

JAMES MARSTERS: Come on down sometime honey I swear to god!

Sorry I didn’t mean to be...

JAMES MARSTERS: There is no glamour. Glamour is a highly constructed artificial thing that takes a lot of work to create.

Listen I know I’m a television presenter it’s completely non-glamorous.

JAMES MARSTERS: It’s not real

Talk to me about the fact that I’ve read up on a couple of things about you guys that a lot of the lines in ANGEL were adlibbed. They started with you in BUFFY and that it kind of continued. Is that true or is it very much scripted?

DAVID BOREANAZ: Its pretty much, very much scripted. I don’t know where that came from. Joss is very particular, always was very particular on specific lines which really have motivated specific story points.

JAMES MARSTERS: Wrong conjunction. Take two.

DAVID BOREANAZ: You know you look back and you go this is why it was happening and this is why you had to say that for that specific reason and I think because he was so specific it kind of pin pointed the show for what it was, and is.


DAVID BOREANAZ: I think ANGEL will have a strong life in the future and they were saying that whilst they were shooting because it is different. It was more complex and I mean BUFFY was an extremely different show it was geared towards a different level.

JAMES MARSTERS: But the point of it was BUFFY was not about vampires, BUFFY was about the human characters and the vampires on BUFFY were just kind of a sideshow.

Whereas ANGEL was all about...


JAMES MARSTERS: Yeah so it had a scope.


JAMES MARSTERS: And it had a need for special effects and stunts that BUFFY never had.


JAMES MARSTERS: So to get that one in the can... Dude, I don’t know how you did that for five years. Smoked me. Smoked me, one year on that show smoked my ass.

Both Angelus...


Angelus and Spike were both in love with Buffy. Who should ultimately have gotten the girl?

DAVID BOREANAZ: Ah you know I think that...

It has to be Angel doesn’t it?

DAVID BOREANAZ: Well you know Angel’s forte of going on and taking off and leaving her crying by the ambulance.

You did! Heartless.

DAVID BOREANAZ: I just think that over those years, though his radar was subject to picking up something a bit different maybe. I don’t know, but ultimately it’s really still up in the cards I think.

JAMES MARSTERS: I don’t know man. There was an episode in the end of the season on BUFFY. They kind of sowed that one up. You came back over and filmed a scene. You remember that shit?

DAVID BOREANAZ: All I did was give her a ring or something.

JAMES MARSTERS: I know but it was pretty clear that was true love whereas I was just really good sex.

You were just a blow in.

JAMES MARSTERS: She used me like a tramp.

She did, didn’t she. Heartless... Beep! Talk to me about the conventions - the sci-fi vampire. You must have met some strange people. Now I know they are your fans so you don’t want to dis them but come on.

DAVID BOREANAZ: I don’t really think of it as a multitude level of insanity like that. You can have a specific group of people that are fascinated with a certain subject matter. I think with us it has always been a group of fans that have always enjoyed the show and the genre rather than the specific quote unquote vampire kind of a thing. I mean you do have the occasional person that dresses up and comes and sees you.

JAMES MARSTERS: That’s beautiful.

DAVID BOREANAZ: Which is great

JAMES MARSTERS: I love that. Let the freak flag fly.

DAVID BOREANAZ: If we can give them their respect. If they can do that it’s great but it really enables us to go and see the fans and give back to them for what they have given us for five seasons.

JAMES MARSTERS: And Angel and Buffy fans, there fans of good writing and ultimately that’s what really draws people to the show. So my interaction with fans of the show has always been surprising. I have a lot of interesting conversations and a lot of people are very cool and I guess I play a character that they expect is going to hit them if they offend me, so they are always like I don’t want to disturb you or anything.

Any ones that actually believe they are vampires or that you guys are vampires that they exist.

JAMES MARSTERS: Very, very few.

But they do... Come on tell me about one.

DAVID BOREANAZ: I never really got that I never got the whole you’re a vampire thing.

JAMES MARSTERS: Yeah man those guys watch ‘underworld’. It’s a whole different thing.

With you guys having played those sort of roles for so long and having researched the whole ‘where is the vampires motivation’, do you ever find yourself asking actually you know, they could exist.



Do you believe in the supernatural at all?


JAMES MARSTERS: No. We’re nothing if not honest you know.

DAVID BOREANAZ: I believe in the supernatural yeah of course. Spirits and what not and energy but I don’t believe that there are creatures of the night walking around. I’m sure there are late in the evening hours somewhere Soho or down in New York.

JAMES MARSTERS: Yeah and at that point there are people who do believe it, people who get their canines sharpened and extended and if they really believe they are vampires they really might bite someone so what’s the difference.

Fair enough. But for the real bona fide vampires you’re not going there you don’t believe that they could actually exist?

JAMES MARSTERS: No man I think we are profoundly ignorant of our situation here in the universe and I think we are in the middle of something far more complex and beautiful than we realise but we really don’t know exactly what that is.

DAVID BOREANAZ: That was deep.


That was so deep I don’t know what to say to it.

JAMES MARSTERS: Coffee’s working.

Good man. Obviously ANGEL was left on the mother of all cliff hangers which means for all the fans they’re begging to hear there will be some kind of Angel reappearance whether its in a movie or a couple more series. What’s going on? Can you give us any tip bit of hope?

DAVID BOREANAZ: There won’t be a series. If anything it would have to be a big screen feature as far as getting me back involved into playing this character again for raising the bar and the level to where it has to be. I think going back and doing an extended series on it or something to further it maybe a little bit longer would most probably jeopardise it or maybe even taint it in a way that may hurt it. And I won’t want to do that.


DAVID BOREANAZ: I mean unfortunately for the fans at the same time the door was so left wide open the way they ended this season and this show I think was a great way.

And you’re happy with that. You’re happy they didn’t kind of conclude to any other kind of...


OK. Well if we are not going to see you on Angel again, final question is what are you guys up to? Where can we see you James first of all?

JAMES MARSTERS: I’ve been frustrating my team and turning down a lot of roles frankly.

That’s good. It’s good to be selective.

JAMES MARSTERS: Frankly yeah. A lot of people want me to play demons or bad guys and drug addicts and that stuff

DAVID BOREANAZ: Drug addicts [laughs].

JAMES MARSTERS: But I played a human being recently and that was very refreshing. That was good. I liked doing that a lot. I’m working on music actually which is going really well.

JAMES MARSTERS: No I’ve split up my band and that’s a hard thing but I’m continuing doing my material with a new producer and I’m really happy about how it is coming out and I think it is going to be really good.

And David?

DAVID BOREANAZ: I just did, I’ve done 3 movies so far. I’ve done a romantic comedy with Alana and Paul Sorvino. It’s called MR FIX IT. Then I did a film called THE HARD EASY with Bruce Dern and Vera Farmiga.

JAMES MARSTERS: You worked with Bruce Dern?





DAVID BOREANAZ: Peter Weller was in it. I play a neurotic stockbroker who is out 4 million dollars and is selling bonds to diamond heists. And I’m working on a film called THESE GIRLS with Caroline Dhavernas. I don’t know if you know her. She’s a very talented actress. I play a stoner kind of guy. It a black comedy.

So nice and varied roles after...

DAVID BOREANAZ: Yeah I’ve done some very interesting roles and I think that it’s been really interesting to see the take on that and we’ve just sold the show to ABC so I’m excited.

Busy man. Busy man. Glad to here it. It’s been great chatting to you and good luck with the DVD. I don’t need to tell you that it’s going to do brilliantly.

DAVID BOREANAZ: It’s going to be fun. Yeah these DVDs are great for fans


DAVID BOREANAZ: Because they can go and can pause it.

JAMES MARSTERS: I know they can pause on our naked scenes.

Freeze frame on you guys!

DAVID BOREANAZ: There’s specials and there’s extras and there’s a lot of the behind the scenes stuff that we did while we were shooting it and I think it’s a gift to you guys, a gift to the fans.

Well thank you very much. We accept it with open arms. Lovely chatting to you. Thank you.

Alyson Hannigan for Veronica Mars

LOS ANGELES ( On Tuesday, Feb. 22, former "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" star Alyson Hannigan leaves demon-infested Sunnydale behind for the mystery-filled seaside town of Neptune, when she makes a guest appearance on the UPN Tuesday-night cult hit "Veronica Mars." She's currently scheduled for one episode "Russkie Business,", with a possibility of the role becoming recurring.

Hannigan plays Trina Echolls, the struggling-actress daughter of town resident and movie star Aaron Echolls (Harry Hamlin), and stepdaughter of his wife, Lynn (Lisa Rinna, Hamlin's real-life spouse). This makes Trina the half-sister of Logan Echolls (Jason Dohring), the high-school foe of teen sleuth Veronica (Kristen Bell).

In Trina, who was a no-show at the memorial service for Lynn (who apparently committed suicide by jumping off a bridge) suddenly appears, raising new questions about what exactly happened to her stepmother.

Alyson Hannigan leaves 'In The Game'

Alyson Hannigan ("Buffy the Vampire Slayer") has opted out of joining the cast of the Jennifer Love Hewitt-led comedy as Sara Gilbert ("Roseanne") has been brought in to replace her. No reason for the change was given. Gilbert's character will also now be listed only as a guest star and not a series regular.


Question: Are you sure Alyson Hannigan chose to drop out of Jennifer Love Hewitt's sitcom, In the Game, and not the other way around (Ask Ausiello 1/19)? — Kar

Ausiello: According to ABC prexy Steve McPherson, Aly's role "kind of diminished just based on the storytelling that was going on. She was unhappy and wanted off the show, so we allowed her to leave."

Spike movie spinoff ?

Question: I'm pleased to hear that you plan to ask the WB folks about Angel movies, but please, what we need are Spike movies starring James Marsters. So, if those WBers try to brush you off with a generic "David Boreanaz is busy," you'll help us out and ask specifically about Spike, won't you please? — Grace

Ausiello: As you predicted, WB president David Janollari immediately played the "[Boreanaz] has a lot of other things going on" card when I asked him for an update on the Angel movies. But I was ready with my Spike follow-up. "I've never thought of that," he said of doing a Marsters-centric telepic. "I had not thought about it. We always thought Angel would be the character the audience would want to come back to see. We may give some thought to the Spike movie. That's interesting." I can't be sure, but I think I just pitched a show to the WB.

Animated Buffy

Jane Espenson and Eric Wight interview

To Buffy fans, Jane Espenson needs little to no introduction. Her work on the series is highly regarded by many fans and critics, and she has written or co-written many memorable episodes - not to mention winning a Hugo Award in the category of Best Dramatic Presentation, Short Form for "Conversations With Dead People" with colleague, Drew Goddard. Her affection for the character and universe continues to be evidenced in her willingness to revisit Buffy in other mediums, like the various comic book adventures she's penned over the past few years, or in the scripts she wrote for the proposed animated series - a project she has yet to fully close the door on.

Eric Wight, on the other hand, probably does need some introduction to Buffy fans, at least for those not privy to the behind the scenes work on their favourite animated slayer and her gang. Eric is a professional animator and illustrator and worked for several years on the Animated Buffy project, designing characters and sets. He was/is largely responsible for the visual style of the show, making each character look cool and establishing the colour palette for the series.

In this interview, the two fill us in on where the series was when it was abandoned, how they got involved with the thing in the first place, and give us a bit of an update on where it is now that it has been dusted off.

Without a Paddle

A high-speed adventure comedy that will keep audiences guessing and laughing until the very end, “Without a Paddle” is hilarious fun that dares to be wild.

Faith TV Movie campaign

What TV Movie?

The Angel fans fought a valent battle to try to save Angel. While there’s virtually no hope of the show returning for a sixth season, there does seem to be the possibility of tv movies next year on the WB according to Garth Ancier: "[We] have an offer on the table to Joss to do movies" and Kristin at Eonline: "I hear the Powers That Be at the WB have approached Joss Whedon about doing at least a movie-of-the-week or two (possibly as many as six) next season--thanks in large part to the folks at Save Angel.

The Problem?

David Boreanaz isn’t interested.

The Solution: Faith TV Movie(s)!

So there you have it. We need to get the WB, 20th Century Fox and Mutant Enemy motivated to make these TV movies happen.

Why Faith?

Faith is one of the best characters to lead a tv movie, since there is so much more that can be done with her character. Faith is hugely popular and such a dynamic character.

What about Eliza?

There’s no Faith without Eliza, but she has expressed her interest in continuing to play Faith, recently at the San Diego Comic Con in July and to the Boston Herald in 2003 when she said, "Joss and I discussed the (Faith) spinoff as an idea, and I want to work with him again, whether it’s a spinoff or a film. I love his writing. He’s the man."

Fox has postponed the premiere of Tru Calling Season 2 to 2005 and reduced the episode order to 6 episodes. Eliza should be available to film a Faith tv movie starting in October.

What to do

The campaign has three targets - Mutant Enemy, The WB and 20th Century Fox. We need all three of them to work together on a Faith tv movie (or any new Angel or Buffyverse project). We need to continue the momentum built by the Save Angel campaigns and send a clear message to them that we want Faith included in any project they have planned.

Send postcards, call, fax and email them asking for a Faith TV Movie.

SMG falls for witch role :)

Buffy the Vampire Slayer star Sarah Michelle Gellar will take the lead role in a movie adaptation of Sabrina the Teenage Witch, according to Teen Hollywood.
The 27-year-old star has apparently beaten Britney Spears to the part.

A source told the website, "A few names have been mentioned, including Britney Spears, but recently she's lost that teenage innocence tag.

"Gellar might be a bit older but she still looks fantastic."

The movie will begin filming in 2006.

David Boreanaz - The Hard Easy

David Boreanaz, Henry Thomas, Vera Farmiga and Bruce Dern will star in The Hard Easy, an independent heist film currently shooting in Los Angeles with Ari Ryan directing. Written by Jon Robert Lindstrom and Tom Schanley, the story centers on two men who attempt to rob a jewelry store on the same day.

The Hollywood Reporter says Boreanaz plays Roger, an unlucky, unethical stock trader and Princeton graduate who agrees to rob the jewelry store with a team in order to cover losses that could put him in jail. Thomas plays Paul, a lowlife gambler who is attempting to do the same thing in an effort to pay off his gambling debts.

Farmiga (Running Scared) will play Dr. Charlie Brooks, an attractive, worldy woman who is trying to get revenge on Paul for her father's death. Dern plays the role of Gene, a former military man who is part of the robbery team.

Tru Calling - but not for long

News for those still scratching their heads over Fox’s decision last season to cancel the wonderful “Wonderfalls” (after four episodes!) but renew its insipid “Tru Calling” for a second season:

“Tru Calling” has been pushed back to 2005, and may only produce six episodes for its second season, according to this story in Tuesday morning’s Variety. Longtime “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” writer Jane Espenson had just joined the skein this year as part of her new two-year deal at Fox Television.

The same network, meanwhile, just ordered 12 episodes of “Point Pleasant,” a “Twin Peaks”-ish supernatural primetime soap created by former “Buffy” showrunner Marti Noxon.

Buffy writers where are they now ?

To (mostly) recap, here’s where the former Buffiverse writers have landed:
Jeff Bell (Joss Whedon’s co-writer on the spectacular “Angel” series finale) is now with “Alias.”

Liz Craft & Sarah Fain (they scripted Hamilton’s introduction in the five-star “Underneath”) have been asked to join “The Shield.”

Steve DeKnight (he co-scripted the hilarious Italy-set “The Girl in Question”) is headed to “Smallville.”

Ben Edlund (whose “Angel” work includes “Life of the Party” and “Time Bomb”), is aboard “Global Freqency.”

Jane Espenson (“Earshot,” “The Replacement,” “I Was Made To Love You”), who worked on both “The O.C.” and “Gilmore Girls” last year, is joining “Tru Calling” as part of her two-year deal with Fox.

Brent Fletcher, who wrote an episode of “Angel” last season titled “Soul Purpose,” has joined the “Lost” staff.

David Fury (“Gone,” “Lies My Parents Told Me,” “You’re Welcome,” “Power Play”) has also signed aboard “Lost.”

Drew Goddard (DeKnight’s co-writer on “The Girl in Question”) now writes for “Alias.”

Drew Z. Greenberg (“Him,” “The Killer in Me,” “Empty Places”), who was scripting “Smallville” last season, had joined “The O.C.”

David Greenwalt left “Angel,” a show he co-created, after its third season to oversee ABC’s “Miracles” and UPN’s “Jake 2.O.” After both series quickly went belly-up, he briefly returned to “Angel” to direct its brilliant Italy-set antepenultimate episode, “The Girl In Question,” but hasn’t been heard from since.

Diego Gutierrez, who wrote the mental-institution episode of “Buffy” during its sixth season, has joined the “Global Frequency” staff.

Rebecca Kirshner (“Help,” “Touched”), a "Freaks & Geeks" vet who was on “Las Vegas” last season, has joined “Gilmore Girls.”

Tim Minear, who followed his wonderful “Angel” season-four finale with the wonderful “Wonderfalls,” is adapting a classic Robert Heinlein novel to the big screen.

Marti Noxon (“What’s My Line?” “The Wish,” “New Moon Rising”), who spent some time after “Buffy” developing “True Life,” a Fox supernatural drama that saw air, will oversee “Point Pleasant,” a 2005 supernatural drama Fox has ordered for a dozen episodes.

Doug Petrie ("As You Were," "End of Days"), who worked on both "Tru Calling" and an aborted "Lost in Space" series for the WB this season, is said to be taking the year off from TV next season to work on movie projects (Petrie, some will recall, wrote "Harriet the Spy" and drafted an early screenplay for "The Fantastic Four").

Mere Smith, who made her mark writing the Lightning Lass Gwen Raiden episodes during “Angel’s” fourth season, worked on “Tarzan” last season but has since moved on to “Jonny Zero,” a Fox midseason hourlong about an ex-con who fights crime.

Buffiverse mastermind Joss Whedon, who wrote more “Angel” teleplays last season than ever before, is in post-production on his big-screen “Firefly” movie, “Serenity” (and remains widely rumored to be the top candidate to write and direct the third “X-Men” movie).

David Fury's (buffy writer) next project

David Fury, co-executive producer of ABC's upcoming SF series Lost, told SCI FI Wire that he intended to develop his own show after the end of his last one, The WB's Angel, but that he couldn't pass up the new series co-created by J.J. Abrams (Alias). "I turned down everything this year and had some nice offers, but nothing felt right to me," Fury said in an interview. "I wanted to spend more time at home and thought I was entitled to take a year off. It's a testament to J.J. and [co-creator] Damon Lindelof, because I had turned down Lost initially. It's only because they forgot that they tried me again. I decided I owed them the courtesy to see the pilot, and it was great! I decided to meet them, and I was totally seduced."

Shot on location in Hawaii, Lost centers on the survivors of a plane crash trying to stay alive on an isolated South Pacific island, where freakish occurrences take place. Matthew Fox and Evangeline Lilly lead an ensemble cast.

"It's not an easy show to categorize," said Fury, who previously wrote for Buffy the Vampire Slayer. "It borders on genre, an adventure show and character studies. It's what appealed to me about Buffy, which was that it could be so many different things. My biggest problem with shows in general is that they are what they are. But this is a show where we can mess around with the tone of it. I'm really happy to be on it." Lost premieres on ABC at 8 p.m. ET/PT on Sept. 22.

Boreanaz Denies Rumors

Former Angel star David Boreanaz denied to SCI FI Wire several rumors swirling on the Internet involving his casting in some high-profile projects. The latest buzz had Boreanaz attached to the fourth Indiana Jones film in development. But Boreanaz said in an interview that the talk is incorrect, even though he would love to be considered for it. "That goes up there with the Superman and Batman rumors," he said. "It would be something I would die to do. Harrison [Ford] is a big idol, and I'd love to take the path that he took. That would be fantastic."

The most recent rumor says that Boreanaz will play the lead in a proposed fourth Jurassic Park movie. That rumor appeared on Dark Horizons.

Boreanaz did confirm that his next film will be the non-genre movie The Hard Easy with Henry Thomas (E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial).
