winds down, the stars of the show are, of course, in the spotlight. Reading the interviews with David Boreanaz
and James Marsters
from TV Guide On-Line are interesting. One thing that strikes me is how Boreanaz claims he has no interest in resuming the character of Angel now that the series is over. Having not seen the finale, I can't say whether or not this is a good thing. But as this was intended as a season finale and not a series per se, I wonder if we'll be left with things hanging that might not be best resolved in a wrap-up. Of course, the one thing I've always appreciated about the Joss Whedon universe is there aren't neat and tidy endings to things--just the next chapter being turned. Kind of like in life, really. But I can't believe there isn't a set amount of money that would make Boreanaz come back. Surely he's learned from the example of SMG to not piss off the fans who helped make you a success and a household name. Certainly reading the article on James Marsters, he gets that. But then again, he's a better actor than Boreanaz is.
And speaking of the cast of Angel
I was in Books-A-Million the other day when I noticed that the new issue of Playboy
features none other than Charisma Carpenter. And my first thought was--sure am glad you left the show so you could pursue other artistic opportunties like this one. It's interesting because a few years ago, Maxim published their Girls of the WB issue and a lot of fans were upset by it. Now, we've had two former WB Girls features in Playboy in the past six or months--first Shannon Dougherty and now Charisma Carpenter. It just makes me wonder--who is next?
