Gavin Rossdale was a vamp on last night’s Criminal Minds
“He may or may not be [a killer]. He plays a vampiric sort of rock star who may or may not be killing people to hype his album,” said Gubler, who plays FBI profiler and psychologist Dr. Spencer Reid. “I’ll be honest: I’ve noticed that [vampire] craze as well and no [we’re not trying to cash in]. The thing is that [vampirism] is actually a pretty common delusion.”
He went on to note that since rock stars and vampires seem to have pretty similar schedules (minus the whole blood-sucking thing), it makes sense for Gavin to try the role on for size. “So if you’re going to pick something to fit a rock star, I think we went more with what are the odds of what he would be that cinematically interesting to watch and rather them him being a pedophile,” he explained. “They went with rock star.”
Bradbury eyes miniseries to showcase short stories
Sci-fi legend Ray Bradbury is preparing to shop a six-hour miniseries to television networks that will feature a half-dozen of his classic short stories, each directed by a different person.
Bradbury, 89, is the author of “Fahrenheit 451” and “Something Wicked This Way Comes.”
The miniseries directors will get to select their favorite titles for the project, is part of a new production agreement with newly formed company White Oak Films.
Serious work on Dr. Horrible sequel could start soon
Ever since we first reported in January that Joss Whedon and company were planning a sequel to Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog, we’ve been awaiting news. And now we have some, courtesy of MTV.com.
First, star Nathan Fillion told the site that the project has a name—which he won’t divulge—and that Whedon’s already written a couple of songs.
Now, Whedon’s brother and co-writer Zack Whedon tells MTV that the sequel will get seriously underway once Joss’ just-canceled Fox series Dollhouse wraps for the season.
“They finish up ‘Dollhouse’ in the winter—at least what they’ve scheduled to shoot thus far—so hopefully when that’s done, we’ll all be able to get together more frequently and grind it out,” he explained. “There are a couple of songs written. It’s very promising. We’re all very excited about where it goes.”
He also confirmed that the sequel will feature Dr. Horrible (Neil Patrick Harris) and Captain Hammer (Fillion). Duh.
Sneak Peek at Supernatural 5.09 The Real Ghostbusters
This week you can bet the Winchester boys are wishing they were back in TVland or at the most had their sunglasses to hide behind as they get tricked by Sam’s obsessed fan Becky into attending a Supernatural convention and of course this episode is airing right before Supernatural stars Jensen Ackles, Jared Padalecki and Misha Collins, along with Jim Beaver, Traci Dinwiddie and other past guest stars are set to appear in Chicago IL at the Creation Convention Salute to Supernatural.
‘Buffy the Vampire Slayer?’ Hell Yeah!
Buffy the Vampire Slayer brought a new dimension to the vampire oeuvre. Based on the campy feature film of the same name, the Buffy television series managed to maintain the humorous aspects while still offering a satisfying “bite.” The vampires in the show were humanized. They were full-formed characters who had interests outside of sucking blood and listening to Bauhaus.
The most well-known Buffy vampire was Angel. In the Buffyverse, vampires had no souls, which was what made them able to rip apart innocent humans without care. But Angel had a soul, which made him all sensitive and brooding, far before Twilight was in vogue. Personally, I found Angel far more interesting when he reverted into Angelus, which is evil Angel without a soul.
Damn! I missed Gavin on Criminal Minds. I bet he was a great vamp! Did you see his performance? If so, was he believable?
It sucks that Dollhouse got cancelled, but it sounds like Joss Whedon will be quickly moving on to other projects, which is good for Dr. Horrible.
I really miss Buffy, it was one of my all time faves.
