Howard Gordon
Howard Gordon has perhaps one of the most impressive resumes for a TV producer working today. His credits include Buffy The Vampire Slayer, Angel, The X-Files, The Inside and 24. With 24 ending, you'd think he might finally take a vacation - but you'd be wrong. In addition to developing two new series, he also found the time to write his first novel. Howard reunited with me on Monday evening to talk about Gideon's War and what it's like to switch from TV boss to novelist.

What made you decide to write a novel?

It was actually a longtime ambition. In college, I was a creative writing m...

Former TV Stars We'd Like To See Back On The Boob Tube

JENNIFER ANISTON: Once the sole reason many viewers tuned into "Friends" during the show's heyday in the 90s, Jen made boys swoon and girls run to the salons to get the most sought-after do of the decade, The Rachel. While Aniston has enjoyed some success with movies such as “The Good Girl” and “Along Came Polly”, we like her best on the tube portraying a ditzy, spontaneous character with a rosy romantic outlook.


Oh, George. Why did you go ahead and become such a movie star? Never mind Dr. Dreamy and McSteamy. You will always be our favorite TV doc. Who can forget “ER”? ...

David Boreanaz
A representative for David Boreanaz has hit back at allegations the actor sexually harassed an extra on his hit TV show Bones - calling the lurid story "totally fabricated and absurd."

Actress Kristina Hagan has filed suit against the former Buffy The Vampire Slayer star alleging he made a series of unwanted sexual advances towards her last year while they worked on the program together.

According to the legal papers, obtained by TMZ.com, Hagan shared a car ride with the former "Buffy The Vampire Slayer" star last September and told her he was "the boss" and could "make things happen for her."

Former "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" star Michelle Trachtenberg showed up at last night's American Museum of Natural History Museum Dance looking quite pale and pasty.

The actress currently stars in NBC's "Mercy" and recently appeared on "Gossip Girl," but we think she would be well suited for "True Blood" or "The Vampire Diaries" due to her very pale complexion. What do you think?

Michelle still has nightmares about her school years because bullies made her life a misery. She told Complex magazine, , "When I was in elementary school, this one girl threw me down a flight of stairs, fract...

Bosses at Marvel have been hunting for a moviemaker to oversee the highly-anticipated superhero outing, which will see Iron Man, The Hulk, Thor and Captain America team up on the big screen.

However, Whedon - who also created hit shows Angel and Dollhouse - is ready to sign on to head up the bloc...

Michelle Trachtenberg Recalls Encounter With School Bully
Actress Michelle Trachtenberg still has nightmares about her school years because bullies made her life a misery. The former Buffy The Vampire Slayer star became a target for classmates, who would push her down stairs, lie to get her into trouble and steal her clothes.

The pretty star recalls, "When I was in elementary school, this one girl threw me down a flight of stairs, fractured my ribs, punched and fractured my nose, and told the principal I used the word b**ch, and got me sent to detention.

Actress Michelle Trachtenberg was freaked out by the creepy "Buffy The Vampire Slayer" fans who staged an online countdown to her 18th birthday - when she became legal for sex.

The star was 14 when she landed the role of Dawn Summers on the cult show and she immediately won the affection of fans - but some took it too far.

She explains, "Even at the time, I was like, 'You're never gonna get a chance (to have sex with me)! So what's your counter for?'

"If anyone's checking a counter, it's pretty safe to say that I'm not going to give them much thought. It's creepy."

'Dollhouse' Recap: The Evil Mastermind Is Revealed

January 11th, 2010 10:27am EST
Joss Whedon has a fiercely loyal and loving fanbase, and it is occasionally an abusive relationship. He likes to destroy characters that the fans love so the pain is fresh and unique, and he likes to throw twists at us that stab our hearts. It happened all the time on "Buffy The Vampire Slayer," like when Buffy had to stab Angel, or Tara was shot through the window, or in "Angel" when Fred was turned into Illyria or Doyle sacrificed his life, or then in "Serenity" when Wash became a victim of the Reavers, and finally when the only sweet character in "Dr Horrible's Sing-Along Blog" was accid...

'Dollhouse' Recap: 'Meet Jane Doe/A Love Supreme'

December 5th, 2009 9:14pm EST
So "Dollhouse" is back, but only as long as it takes them to get out the rest of the season since it has officially been canceled. The hilarious part of this is that they aired two episodes last week, and both were exceptionally well done. The show is finally getting it together just as it is canceled. How wonderfully cruel. Rather than do two recaps of the episodes, they basically blend together so this will be one big recap. Ready? Ready! Did I fall asleep?

Senator Perrin, aka the delicious Alexis Denisof, is making an aggressive push against the Rossum company and the Dollhouse. He go...

Alyson Hannigan Says Buffy Movie Is A Mistake
Former Buffy The Vampire Slayer star Alyson Hannigan has blasted plans for a big-screen spin-off of the show, branding the movie "a big mistake."

The franchise began with the 1992 film of the same name, starring Kristy Swanson, which spawned the small-screen series with Sarah Michelle Gellar in the lead role. The cult TV show came to an end in 2003 and is set to be rebooted with a new film featuring a brand new vampire slayer, and without any input from former lead writer Joss Whedon.

Hannigan is adamant none of the main cast members would sign up for the project unless Whedon was i...

The Top Hottest Vampires
Forget werewolves and witches, vampires have taken a bite out of pop culture and they're not going down without a fight. From films to fashion, gorgeous bloodsuckers are everywhere and causing a major heat wave as the biggest trend of 2009. Twilight may have caused thousands of teenagers to join Team Edward, but these seductive creatures have been captivating audiences for decades.

What's not to love about them? They're forever young, enchanting, seemingly unattainable, sometimes romantic, and always amazing in the sack. Some are tortured, while others just enjoy a good bloodbath. Fortu...

Joss Whedon's 'Terminator' Offer Falls Short

Joss Whedon
Joss Whedon's bid to buy the Terminator franchise for $10,000 looks likely to fall flat - the sellers are asking for $70 million for the rights to the sci-fi series.

The Buffy the Vampire Slayer creator wrote an open letter to Halcyon Co. bosses after learning they were auctioning the franchise as part of the company's bankruptcy process. Offering the five-figure sum, he proclaimed, "I loved the movies, even the later movies. I loved the mythology. I loved the TV show (The Sarah Connor Chronicles) - like, really loved. Not for pretend."

However, Halcyon chiefs are hoping for a figur...

Are Zombies The New Vampires?

October 19th, 2009 10:56am EDT
Let's get this out of the way first: I'm a zombie fan. I don't like vampires, and I don't think that Edward is particularly sexy. Sorry. But as an entertainment commentator for Starpulse I'd have to admit, with some reluctance, that vampires have zombies over a barrel. And it doesn't look like that's ever going to change. The hit television series True Blood, and the media swallowing ultra-franchise Twilight, have demonstrated a renewed interest in these banal blood-suckers. While movies like Zombieland continue the trend of zombie comedies which, although undeniably funny, only re-enforce ...
