AngelJames Marsters "Getting the Most Buzz" for ANGEL TV Movie

That’s the latest word, plus news on the possibility that Charisma Carpenter may become a Charmed regular.
Rooty Tooty Spike and Fruity: Angel fans, you never cease to amaze me. Though the show is long gone, and we have nothing left but our anger at the WB to cling to, you’ve still managed to turn it around and do something positive. (Omarosa could learn a thing or two from you.)
This week, I received my very first fruit basket from the fruitcakes (I say that lovingly) at Support Spike, along with a 12-inch-tall collectible doll that is making this a one-handed column as we speak—I cannot bear to release my kung-fu grip on wittle Spikey.
The fan publicity kits were sent to the WB, Mutant Enemy (Joss Whedon’s production company), Fox Studios and a few press types like moi. Their mission: stir up support for a Spike-centered event movie or spinoff series.
And I have only one word to say about that—Please?
Now, the good news. According to sources at the Frog net, WB boss Garth Ancier is still pushing for the WB to do at least one Angel TV movie this season, possibly a few, focusing on individual characters. Since David Boreanaz is not expected to sign on, I’m told James Marsters (Spike) is getting "the most buzz."
More yumminess, though it’s hardly an Angel movie, we fans may have another reason to tune into the WB this fall. A rep at the network confirmed that Angel expat Charisma Carpenter (Cordelia) is indeed guesting on Charmed in the third and fifth episodes of the season, airing Sept. 26 and Oct. 10. She’s filming right now, and I’m hoping to speak with her to get the full scoop. For now I can tell you she’s playing a demonic seer (no connection to her role on Angel).
According to the rep at the WB, there’s a possibility Charisma could end up as a regular, but for now, it’s just a guest appearance.
