Garner to stick with Alias indefinitely

I have really been enjoying Alias this season especially with the addition of (our) Melissa George. I think it's become edgier and Jennifer Garner is just a superstar, no to ways about it. Anyway, Sci Fi Wire reports that Garner officially signed to return for season four and added that she plans to stick with the show indefinitely. Cool!

Emma Caulfield on her new movie Bandwagon

Via WHEDONesque, in Emma Caulfield’s Demons from Orange County Weekly Emma Caulfield talks about her new movie Bandwagon and other stuff,

look at what’s been happening with free speech in this country, at the way Howard Stern is being treated by the FCC, for instance, and it appalls me. I wanted us to make a really strong statement against this whole repressive climate.

And this from a Republican pin-up girl.

Oh and here's a synopsis of the film from OC Metro

There also are a surprising number of superb mockumentaries on this year's roster. Karri Bowman's "Bandwagon" follows a basically well-meaning but pampered and vapid Hollywood starlet (former "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" sidekick Emma Caulfield, fearlessly parodying herself) who is casting about for a new cause to endorse when she meets Tabitha (Bowman), a young, retarded waitress who has dreams of becoming an actress. Poor Emma throws all of her resources into helping Tabitha realize her dreams, doing untold damage to her own faltering career in the process. The film is a godsend for "Buffy" geeks like me (several of Caulfield's "Buffy" cohorts show up to squirm while she makes a fool of herself). But even if you don't know your vamps from your vengeance demons, "Bandwagon" will both amaze and amuse you with its bitterly hilarious satire.

Yes, I have to see this...

Garner Reveals Elektra Hints

Sci Fi Wire,

Jennifer Garner, who will reprise her Daredevil role as the star of the upcoming spinoff movie Elektra, told SCI FI Wire that she is already training for the physical role in the movie, which picks up the story of the earlier film. "It's not a prequel," Garner said in an interview. "It's a sequel to her story in Daredevil, and I've been training for the past couple of months. I trained after the [13 Going on 30 press] junket last night and got up this morning and will go again tonight. And I'm loving it." Garner added that principal photography begins next month. "I'm starting in May," she said. More...

Buffy/Angel TV Film Possible?

Sci Fi Wire reports Buffy/Angel TV Film Possible?

The WB has approached Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel creator Joss Whedon about doing at least a movie-of-the-week or two—and possibly as many as six—next season, thanks in large part to a fan campaign organized by Saving Angel, E! Online's Watch With Kristin column reported. But the columnist added that, despite Herculean efforts by fans to save the canceled vampire show, Angel won't be coming back as a regular series, either on the frog network or on UPN or Fox, which have both passed.

BTW there are spoilers flying around about the Angel Season Finale. I'm not posting anything about them at all except to say I have been quite shocked about what I've read.

In other news via WHEDONesque, Zap2it interviews Julie Benz (Darla) and TV scribe talks girl power in which former Buffy writer/producer, Jane Espenson, now co-executive producer of the Gilmore Girls talks about how people who make mistakes are better than role models.
