Have Faith in the Son
Fear not Faith-ians, that unforgettable unit of legs belonging to Eliza Dushku is heading back into frame.
Dushku’s a lock for “Nobel Son” a new Indy that she’ll share screen time with Bryan Greenberg, Alan Rickman, Mary Steenburgen, Shawn Hatosy, Bill Pullman and Danny De Vito. With that many mugs on screen, she’ll have to push to get her spunky phizog on lens - but with a lad behind the camera (Randall Miller) we suspect she’ll get a few foxy close-ups.
The film, which Miller also wrote and will produce, concerns a son struggling to finish his thesis when his father wins the Nobel Prize in chemistry, making life all the more difficult for him and his mother, a well-known forensic psychiatrist.
It’s believed Peter Boyle ["Everybody Loves Raymond"] may also have a role.
While we’re talking ex-“Buffy” players, let’s fill some of this creamy space with what the rest of the Scooby’s have been up to.
Good news for David Boreanaz. His new show, “Bones”, co-starring Emily Deschanel), has been ranking No. 1 in the Tuesday 8-9 PM time period among key demos, including Adults 18-49, Men 18-49, Men 18-34 and Male Teens 12-17. It’s pilot was FOX’s highest-rated primetime Tuesday-night drama series premiere in nearly four years too.
Alyson Hannigan’s also going to have a Merry lil’ Christmas. Her new show, “How I Met Your Mother” (Which Adam says blows chunks), has just got a full-season order. It’s averaging 10.41 million viewers and has placed first in its Monday (8:30-9:00 PM) time period in viewers and key demographics against regularly scheduled programs.
“Smallville”, which James Marsters is guesting as Braniac on (Only seen the pilot this season, and he only popped up for a minute near the end, so can’t comment on his turn in that yet) is already rating its cheeks off. Oh, want to know what Jimmy’s going to look like as Braniac? Click here.
Also, rumours about “Kitchen Confidential”, Nicholas Brendon’s new show, being axed - not true. Nup. It’s on a break, yes, but not a permanent one.
Before we get off the Dushku-lass altogether, “Bring it On Yet Again”, yep, a second sequel to the Eliza Dushku starring film, is currently before cameras.
Finally, I’m hearing good,good,good, things on the “Spike” telemovie front. It’s coming together nicely. Should have more on that soon.
