Heather MorrisGlee star Heather Morris has been tipped as the favorite to take over from Sarah Michelle Gellar as Buffy The Vampire Slayer in a new reboot.
 
The longrunning TV series, which began as a 1992 film starring Kristy Swanson, is being re-imagined in a new big screen outing, with a new actress playing the cheerleader-turned-vampire hunter
 
And Morris, who portrays a cheerleader in Glee, is rumored to be first in the running to take the title role, according to Movieweb.com.
 
An insider tells the website, "Heather Morris' comedic timing is a perfect fit for Buffy Summers, and that her background as a dancer and a gymnast will be greatly utilized (sic)...
 
"In this new reboot, Buffy will no longer be in high school, but instead facing the same hardships that a lot of young college graduates have today in struggling to find a paying job and a healthy relationship. Though she plays a teenager on Glee, the 23 year-old-actress is actually the right age for this newly rebooted take on the character."
