Sarah Michelle Gellar

Sarah Michelle Gellar - "Southland Tales" Movie Script Pops Up

Saturday 24 September 2005, by Webmaster

Another actress, who actually has a name to care for is Sarah Michelle Gellar and there are not no many accomplishes films at her but an few I can probably enjoy. The talent agent found Gellar a young age and made her screen debut at 6 of each of the 1983 television film An Invasion of Privacy. With all the promise she showed, Barrymore starred as Hannah in the teen drama series "Swans Crossing" (1992) but it was her portrayal of a young and callous rich girl in Al-Lucinda Kendall Hart on ABC daytime soap opera "All My Children" (1993-93), that won her Daytime Emmy Award and spring-boarded her to stardom.

SMG’s real mark worldwide, however, was the character of Buffy Summers in the game-changing series "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" (1997-2003). She won five Teen Choice Awards, a Saturn Award and a Golden Globe nomination for her role, establishing herself as a cultural phenomenon. Sarah Michelle Gellar likewise has the box office to back her up, with “I Know What You Did Last Summer” 1997), “Scream 2” (1997), “Cruel Intentions” (1999)and way movies like those that help prove she is also a bankable star as well over $570 million times worth crazy in global gross.

Beyond her cinematic successes, Gellar has made her mark on television, headlining shows such as "Ringer" (2011-2012), "The Crazy Ones" (2013-2014), and "Wolf Pack" (2023). She has also lent her voice to popular series including "Robot Chicken" (2005-2018), "Star Wars Rebels" (2015-2016), and "Masters of the Universe: Revelation" (2021).

In 2015, Gellar ventured into the entrepreneurial world by co-founding Foodstirs, an e-commerce baking company, and published her own cookbook, "Stirring Up Fun with Food," in 2017. Gellar is also known for her close-knit family life, married to actor Freddie Prinze Jr. since 2002, with whom she shares two children.

Sarah Michelle Gellar’s commitment to her craft is matched by her dedication to personal growth and unique experiences. An accomplished martial artist, she studied Tae Kwon Do for five years, alongside kickboxing, boxing, street fighting, and gymnastics. Her dedication to authenticity in her roles is evident, such as her commitment to doing her own stunts in "Buffy the Vampire Slayer," though she admitted her limits during filming "Scream 2."

Her career is also marked by interesting anecdotes, such as her role in a 1982 Burger King commercial, which led to a lawsuit from McDonald’s and a temporary ban from their establishments. Notably, she dyed her naturally brunette hair blonde for her role in "Buffy," and legally changed her last name to Prinze as a surprise for her husband on their fifth anniversary.

Sarah Michelle Gellar’s legacy extends beyond her on-screen roles, encompassing her work in philanthropy and her reputation for safety and professionalism on set. She remains a beloved figure in Hollywood, admired for her talent, dedication, and the breadth of her contributions to film and television.

Southland Tales The Rock and Sarah Michelle Gellar go at it. A while back when we posted this image of The Rock kissing Sarah Michelle Gellar on the set of Southland Tales we mentioned that little was known about the film. Well, we have recently been alerted that you can find out more on this Richard Kelly film by going to Richard-Kelly.net. This site offers some great insight on the film but, as far as I can tell, Joblo may have the better insight when it comes to the script.

Southland Tales Script

The good people over at Joblo have gotten a scoop from some one who has read the script for Southland Tales. In the report the person claims that the film sticks to Richard Kelly form but has much, much, more going on. Check out a snippet below:

SOUTHLAND TALES is...shit, where I do begin? Well it’s really complex and dark and funny and philosophical and every other adjective that was great about DONNIE DARKO, but on a much, much bigger scale. Let me set the stage: it’s the fourth of July weekend in the year 2008, two years after a pair of nukes slammed into the Texan-Mexican border. The war that ensued in the Middle East put a huge strain on oil relations. Enter the Treer Company (www.treer-products.com), which has apparently built the world’s first perpetual motion machine. It’s supposed to solve all of the fuel problems and is run by a thing called “Fluid Karma.” Yeah, I don’t get it either.

The first main character we meet is Krysta Now! (Sarah Michelle Gellar) the porn star with very ambitious dreams of mass marketing herself. She approaches a female porn director about a plan she has involving her new boyfriend, Boxer Santaros (The Rock). Apparently he has amnesia and doesn’t remember the last two years. The only thing he has is a screenplay he wrote himself called “The Power,” which is all about the end of the world. Apparently he is also the husband of the daughter of a presidential candidate (Mandy Moore) but she hasn’t seen him in weeks and he doesn’t remember her. Krysta plans exposing his meltdown and potential election-changing story while reaping the benefits to launch her chain of energy drinks, t-shirts, purses, etc.

Could Southland Tales be a bigger mind fuck than Donnie Darko? Read the entire script report at Joblo and make your own impressions.

Southland Tales will be released to theatres some time in 2006.
