Marsters back to Smallville, plus new TV roles for Brendon, Carpenter and McNab.
September 26, 2007 - There’s been a lot of casting news centering on Buffy the Vampire Slayer alums in the past week, so we thought we’d round it all up here. First there was an update on Charisma Carpenter (Buffy’s Cordelia), who was rumored to be in the running for the celebrity edition of The Apprentice. TV Guide now reports Carpenter won’t be on that series after all, but does have two new gigs lined up. Carpenter will be guest starring on an episode of the new FOX sitcom Back to You, and she also has joined ABC’s Big Shots in a recurring role. Big Shots will re-team Carpenter with Veronica Mars creator Rob Thomas, who has joined that series as a consultant.
EOnline is reporting that James Marsters (Buffy’s Spike) will not only have a new recurring role on Without a Trace this fall, but is also returning to Smallville later this season as Milton Fine, AKA Braniac, for a four episode stint. Meanwhile, TV Guide’s Michael Ausiello says that Marster’s fellow former vampire, Mercedes McNab (Buffy’s Harmony), will be guest starring on the November 15th episode of Supernatural. Ausiello hints she may once more be playing a vampire on that series as well.
Meanwhile, Nicholas Brendon’s (Buffy’s Xander) official site, NickBrendon.com, has announced that the actor will be appearing on Criminal Minds in a guest star role as Kevin, described as "a computer expert who’s part of the investigative team." The website says the role has the potential to be recurring.
