Harmony is a Mommy!!!
Last May we learned the happy news that Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel star Mercedes McNab (who played the annoyingly loveable cheerleader-turned-vampire Harmony on both shows) got herself hitched to hubby Mark Henderson. Today we learn that Mercedes and Mark gave birth to a baby girl this week! This baby is the first for the couple and they gave her just the most beautiful name ever … Vaunne Sydney.

The Buffyverse Reunion
Early last month we learned that Buffy the Vampire Slayer alum Seth Green filmed a special guest role on fellow former BtVS co-star Alyson Hannigan‘s CBS TV series How I Met Your Mother. Today we get to see the first promo images released from the episode where this Buffyverse reunion takes place. Click below to see a few photos from the episode. Now, I don’t watch HIMYM so I’m not sure if these photos are spoilery or not so use your best judgement. I believe the Seth/Alyson storyline is the B story of the episode so I don’t think the images below are spoilery at all. More »

Meet Billy the Vampire Slayer
Back in February we learned that Buffy Summers, more famously known to the world as Buffy the Vampire Slayer, will be facing the realities of abortion in the comic book series Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season 9. Today we learn that there are more big changes on the way for Buffy and the Scooby Gang in BtVS Season 9. The comic book series will feature the introduction of a new vampire slayer … and for the first time ever, this slayer is male. And how can there possibly be a male vampire slayer when only females can be slayers? Well, apparently, it turns out that gay males can turn into vampire slayers, too. Click below to get your first look at the first ever male vampire slayer and learn more about how he will come to be. More »
The Geek God Takes on The Bard
Remember last October when I let you guys know that I filmed a cameo role in a little movie based on the William Shakspeare play Much Ado About Nothing that was directed by some guy named Joss Whedon? Yeah, well, that film made its worldwide debut at the The Elgin Theatre at the Toronto International Film Festival over the weekend and many of the film’s principal actors were in attendance. Sadly, I could not attend but folks like Amy Acker (Angel), Alexis Denisof (Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Angel), Nathan Fillion (Firefly, Castle), Clark Gregg (The Avengers), Tom Lenk (Buffy the Vampire Slayer) and others did attend the red carpet premiere in my stead. My good friends Emma Bates and Joshua Zar were also at the event because they, too, star in the film :D Click below to see some photos from the Much Ado premiere at TIFF and read an AMAZING review of the film itself.

Congrats to Our Fave 'Buffy'/'Angel'/'Dexter' Star!
Back in June of last year, after a four year courtship, we learned that actress Julie Benz got herself engaged to be married to her longtime beau Rich Orosco. Yesterday, the pair said their I Dos and got themselves hitched here in SoCal. Julie, as you should be WELL aware, played Darla the vampire on Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel as well as Rita Morgan on Dexter (among other fabulous TV and movie roles) … so I’ve got MAD love for the lady. Julie‘s former Buffyverse co-star and real life BFF Charisma Carpenter (Cordelia Chase on BtVS and Angel) was in attendance at Julie and Rich‘s wedding (actually, I think she was IN the wedding) and she posted a few photos from yesterday’s nuptials to her official Twitter profile. Click below to see some of those photos. More »
