25th William S. Paley Television's - Buffy The Vampire Slayer

Media's 25th annual Paley Television Festival at the Arclight Cinema was at the Paley Center on March 20. Most of the cast of my favorite show ever, got along fine Thursday when they reunited for a panel discussion at the William S. Paley Television Festival. Sarah Michelle Gellar said she was surprised to find out moments before the reunion that her character recently had her first sexual tryst with a woman in "Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season Eight," a comic book series that picks up where the show ended. Gellar also reminisced about auditioning 11 times before landing the role of Buffy Summers. -The Associated Press

Amber Benson ("Tara") just sold a series of fantasy books to Penguin.

Emma Caulfield ("Anya") just got back from doing charity work in Africa. She also has two movies coming out: TiMER and Why Am I doing this?.

Charisma Carpenter doesn't seem to have any immediate projects at the time. James Marsters just finished shooting Dragonball and is working on Torchwood.

Up next for Nicholas Brendon ("Xander") is the movies The Portal and Blood on the Highway.

Seth and Sarah seemed very chummy in a variety of pictures. Sarah Michelle Gellar also just returned from Africa where she did work for CARE. Up for Seth is Old Dogs and The Brazilian Job. Fans really want Oz back in the comics, here is hoping Whedon keeps it in mind.

Michelle Trachtenberg just wrapped Seventeen Again and Kids in America with Topher Grace. She will also guest star on Gossip Girl, which Entertainment Weekly recently reported they were still looking for a girl to cast as a villain... they wanted Mischa Barton, but thankfully she said no. Trachtenberg played a bitch before, on "Six Feet Under."

digitalspy reorts: Whedon suggested that a musical outing might be a future possibility: "I would love to take Buffy to Broadway... you would have to start from scratch. I've spent some time daydreaming about it, because I'm me."

Alyson Hannigan ("Willow") was also there but for "How I Met Your Mother." Eliza Dushku ("Faith") and Hannigan's names were both in the program and on the press releases, but weren't present for the Buffy reunion. Anthony Stewart Head was not present either. Whedon said he would love to do a Buffy musical but with no desire to revisit the previous plot, indicated he would have to start from scratch.
