AngelStar Relieved At Angel’s End
Wednesday 5 May 2004, by Webmaster
David Boreanaz, star of The WB’s Angel, told CNN Headline news that he’s relieved that the show is finally coming to an end after five seasons, and that there would have to be a good reason for him to put Angel’s black trenchcoat back on for the reported Angel TV movies-of-the-week under consideration for next year. "There’s been talk about films, board games-let me see-video games," Boreanaz told the news network. "Everything, across the board. These characters that [executive producer] Joss [Whedon] has created will live forever."
Angel is ending May 19, though reports have suggested that The WB may be considering one or more TV movies to extend the show’s story next year. But, Boreanaz said, "I think whenever they want to revisit that character and bring it to a higher plateau, I would only be interested if the bar was [raised] a lot higher."
Boreanaz, who originated the role of the vampire with a soul in the first episode of Buffy the Vampire Slayer before spinning off in his own series, said that he’s currently entertaining three offers for post-Angel projects.
Boreanaz added that he is in talks to appear in September in the London stage production of When Harry Met Sally, a play that also marked the West End stage debut of Alyson Hannigan-a Buffy co-star and the real-life wife of Angel co-star Alexis Denisof. The play has yet another Buffy connection: It currently co-stars Luke Perry, who played opposite Kristy Swanson in the original 1992 Buffy the Vampire Slayer feature film.
