'Buffy' and 'Caprica' Veterans Team Up for 'Husbands,' a Cheeky Web Series (VIDEO)

Couples going to Las Vegas and impulsively tying the knot while drunk is a longstanding ritual for both celebrities and civilians. Now that gay couples can get married, why shouldn't they be part of that tradition? That's the question that writer/performer Brad Bell and television writer/producer Jane Espenson ('Battlestar Galactica,' 'Game of Thrones,' 'Buffy') asked themselves when they were creating 'Husbands,' a web series that premieres Tuesday. In the 11-episode comedy, Bell and Sean Hemeon play a performer and a newly out major-league baseball player who get married in Vegas, only to wake up with hangovers and the realization that they don't know each other well. Alessandra Torresani , who's best known for playing Zoe Graystone on 'Caprica,' plays their frequently inebriated friend, Haley.

Sarah Michelle Gellar, Charisma Carpenter Land New Gigs: Where Are The Other 'Buffy' Alums?

It's a great time to be an alum of "Buffy the Vampire Slayer," seeing as many of the show's cast members are returning to the small screen. With news that the show's resident mean girl, Cordelia (a.k.a. Charisma Carpenter) has nabbed herself a cameo spot on USA Network's "Burn Notice," it got us wondering what the other actors on the show are up to these days. Short answer: quite a lot!

'Gilmore Girls' and 4 more shows that never got Emmy love

As we have some fun speculating on what shows, actors and writers are going to be nominated for Emmys this year, let's take a second to remember some shows that, for one reason or another, never got the love they deserved from the academy voters. These are shows that have been widely, even universally, praised by critics and have loyal, almost slavish followings, but never made a dent in any of the major Emmy categories.There are some surprises on this list, one of which is actually an Emmy nominee and winner many times over ... but still feels like it's gotten no love."The Wire": To many critics and fans, the HBO classic is considered one of the best dramas of all time. The gritty portrayal of the life of both cops and drug culture in Baltimore gathered up so much praise in its five seasons that you'd think it would have a boatload of Emmys....

That Glee-ful Buffy rumor may not be a rumor after all

A week or two ago, we told you about rumors that  Glee  actress Heather Morris was being considered for the role of Buffy Summers by the studio handling that littlecontroversial  Buffy  reboot. But what does Morris have to say about whether these rumors are true? The actress, known best for her role on  Glee  as the often ditzy but lovable cheerleader Brittany, told Access Hollywood that she is indeed a contender for the role of the kick-ass Vampire Slayer. The actress said that: "They're considering me! I found out and I almost peed my pants because I was so excited!"

Buffy The Vampire Slayer Motion Comic #2

It's been a long week waiting for Part 2 of 'The Long Way Home' in motion comic form, and I must say, the excitement has waned slightly upon seeing the second episode. I'd love to say that the episode lived up to my expectations, but unfortunately a few negative aspects I highlighted in my last review are weighing heavily upon the series. But hey, lets start with the positives, shall we? The episode itself focuses upon the training of the Slayers activated in the events of the Season 7 finale, 'Chosen'. We see their struggle to co-operate with one another, and learn how much of an uphill struggle their activation actually presents with regards to making any progress in the battle with evil. Dawn's growth is also dealt with, with Xander suggesting that perhaps her struggles with herself and her new family of Slayers are manifesting in the form of her new gigantic stature. The meat of the story, however, comes in the form of a curse put upon Buffy in her sleep, trapping her within her own dreamworld until she receives the kiss of true love. Cliche, sure, but the reintroduction of Amy as an antagonist is an interesting start to the season. To Read More Click Here .

Buffy The Vampire Slayer Motion Comic #1, Hot or Not?

Since the release of the comic continuation of Buffy The Vampire Slayer in 2007, speculation of a TV or film continuation has been rife, be it in the form of spin-offs such as Buffy: The Animated Series or the recently announced Buffy The Vampire Slayer film, without the involvement of original creator Joss Whedon or the original cast. However, until now, nothing outside of the comic medium has surfaced. This changes with the release of Buffy The Vampire Slayer: The Motion Comic. Since motion comics first became popular, opinion has been generally negative of their ability to tell a linear story without losing aspects of character or plot. Watchmen: The Complete Motion Comic received a very mixed response, with some disappointed at the fact that the entire cast was voiced by one actor, and others praising the animation involved. However, the Buffy Motion Comic lacks many of the faults highlighted within others, and proves to be an entertaining watch without degrading the characters established within 7 televised seasons.

SideReel's 10 Favorite Werewolves In TV & Film!

Listen up, fangbangers. Werewolves are here to swoop in and take over this vamp-centric phenomenon (through vampire shows and their own series to boot!), but they're by no means newbies. They've been around just as long as their blood-sucking brethren and are finally ready to take the limelight (err, or the moonlight?). Even before the original Wolfman film 70 years ago, werewolves had been wrecking havoc under the full moon for centuries, and now they're even stealing hearts with their sensitive sides and impressive abdominal muscles (that's what I'm talkin' 'bout!). They may be mysterious, temperamental, furry (sometimes), and somewhat predictable (beware the full moon!), but we at SideReel are all about the wolfboys (and girls!), so without further ado, here are our 10 favorite werewolves (watch out, #10 is kind of spoiler-ific!): 1. Jacob Black, Twilight Okay, so technically Jacob is a shapeshifter , not a werewolf, though that careful distinction isn't technically made until the abomination that is the 4th book (we do not speak of BD), but I'm not going to split hairs for the sake of this post. Logistics aside, Jacob has every desirable quality a werewolf should have -- washboard abs, bulging biceps, 108 degrees of heart-melting hotness... What? These aren't characteristics of all traditional werewolves? Well, I still approve. Sure, Jacob is only like, 16... but he has the body of a 25-year-old! It says so in the books! You can't fault me for drooling. 2. Alcide Herveaux, True Blood We haven't seen him in werewolf action yet, but I have a feeling we're all going to prefer him in human form, anyway. Shirtless human form. We've only just met him so far, but I'm already lovin' that he's slightly mysterious and dangerous, yet gentle at the same time, and probably a little more bad-ass than his emo 'tude is letting on at the moment. As long as he's doin' what he's gotta do in minimal clothing, I'm down for the ride! 3. Oz, Buffy the Vampire Slayer Before he became a Family Guy vocal staple, and prior to his stint as E's arch nemesis on Entourage , Seth Green was Buffy's resident teen wolf. Unlike most traditional werewolves, Oz had the ability to somewhat control his wolfy outbreaks despite the moon's ominous patterns. He may not have had the impressive god-like physique of some of my favorite wolfmen, but he made up for it in musical talent! 4. Scott Howard, Teen Wolf Speaking of teen wolves, I'm goin' old school on this one. Looking back, this hoop-shooting lycan may not look nearly as cool as I'm sure he was back in the day, but wasn't Michael J. Fox just sooo dreamy back then? Seriously, was he? 'Cause this movie was kind of before my time... 5. Scott McCall, Teen Wolf Good news: the 80s classic lives on with this upcoming new MTV series, Teen Wolf . I guess it's a little too early to deem him one of my favorites, but I beg to differ -- this series is gonna kick some RJ Berger butt. Werewolves need to step it up, anyway, if they want to compete with the whole vampire trend! Tyler Posey of Lincoln Heights stars in the TV remake, and he looks way more bad-ass than the 80s-tastic Michael J. Fox and Jason Bateman versions! 6. Remus Lupin, Harry Potter Lycanthropy may be more of a curse than a benefit for poor Professor Lupin, but he makes it work. Rather than giving him heightened senses and super strength, his condition makes Lupin haggard and ill around the times of his transformation, and is basically a slave to the moon's patterns. It certainly helps to have a wizard lady friend who loves him to stand by during the hardest times, along with a supportive band of friends, and a place to hide! He gets extra points for maintaining his moral code and loyalty to Dumbledore despite his wolfy ways, unlike his evil fellow wolf, Fenrir Greyback. 7. Madison, Supernatural She (yes, she !) may have only appeared in one episode, but I gotta give props to her for representing for the she-wolves! Madison painted a sympathetic portrait of weres, despite the many evils that face the Winchester boys, through her short-lived romance with Sam (and its heart-breaking ending). While things may not have ended well for her, Madison showed heart and determination over her lycan impulses, making the ultimate sacrifice to keep others safe from her monster side. 8. Luke Cates, Wolf Lake Yup, believe it or not, before Vampire Diaries star Paul Wesley made it big as brooding vamp Stefan, he heated things up on the short-lived series Wolf Lake . Seriously, though. He got naked. Like, a lot. With some Skinemax-worthy sexy time on the lake shore. Don't ask me how that was cool for CBS (and don't ask how that TV GOLD ever got canceled), because I never watched it myself, but... you can catch up on reruns on the Syfy channel! 9. Cory Matthews, Boy Meets World Okay, so I'm kind of cheating with this one, because Cory isn't actually a werewolf (as far as we know), but it was only like, the most ridiculously awesome Halloween episode ever! Cory has a scare when he suspects that he's going to turn into a werewolf after getting bitten by a strange animal. Of course, this was not the case, but compared to some of the weird/unrealistic happenings in the later seasons, an actual werewolf wouldn't have been that far-fetched... **SPOILER ALERT** 10. Tyler Lockwood, Vampire Diaries So we don't actually know if Tyler is a werewolf, so this is just a prediction, but all signs left over from the first season point to "probably." If the books ring true in this case, I think he'd be a welcome addition to the modern werewolf family (and maybe a good excuse for me to start watching more regularly come season 2), though he does have some big shoes to fill! Got a favorite wolf boy (or girl) that didn't make the list? Share below!

Former Buffy Star James Marsters Gets Engaged

James Marsters has played an evil vampire and an evil android – but now the Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Smallville has a new role: Happy groom-to-be. Marsters, 47, recently proposed to longtime girlfriend Patricia Rahman, 24, a student of fashion design, in Trier, Germany, his rep tells PEOPLE. Marsters, who is also a musician and played with the band Ghost of the Robot, met Rahman at a concert in Amsterdam. Of their first meeting, Marsters told PEOPLE in 2006, "I met her backstage and got her phone number, but then my jeans were cleaned out by the crew and they threw it out. I'd given her my number, but she took down one digit wrong. It took her six months to call all of the different combinations." The couple plan to wed this fall. Marsters will next be seen in the new CBS series Hawaii 5-0. Source: People
