I wonder if this is fact or rumor. It kind of makes sense that David would play a villain on Serenity because all the Firefly actors who have been on Buffy and Angel have played villains since Firefly was cancelled.

I think that would be an absolutely horrendous idea since he is so recognizable as Angel. It would be really distracting.

May have been the losing side. Still not convinced it was the wrong one.


I think David will make a great villian if he is in fact in the movie. I have liked his portrayal of Angelus on the show and can easily see him as the "operative" role.

Joss will only use David in 'Serenity' if he is NOT recognizable as Angel...(I mean Joss would make him grow a beard or something to look different). I mean when Adam Baldwin showed up on 'Angel' last week he looked nothing like Jayne!

Whoa, whoa, whoa: relax! This is just my opinion. I think it will be distracting TO ME to see David B. in Serenity because I've watched him for so long on Buffy and Angel as Angel. It's only natural to associate a person with a character they have played for over 5 years. Hell, on Angel the other night, I automatically screamed "Jayne!" when Adam Baldwin came onscreen. (And yeah, he looked like Jayne, because Jayne is just Adam Baldwin with a goatee...just because the clothes and mannerisms weren't the same doesn't mean he doesn't look like himself).

It's not as if I have anything against David B, he's a great actor, but I think if there are going to be crossovers among shows, it should be kept away from Firefly as much as possible. Going back and forth between Buffy and Angel isn't too much of a stretch of the imagination because they are the same genre (and Angel's a spinoff, crossover characters make sense).

I even felt it was a bit distracting to see the guys that played Dobson and Tracey because of their roles on previous Joss Whedon shows. Even knowing Womack was on the tv show Sentinel was a bit distracting. It just takes away a bit of my suspension of disbelief.

I'm not saying that there are only certain actors that should be allowed to be in Serenity, but I feel that Joss should stay away from using the huge iconic ones who had their own shows like DB and SMG.

Again, JUST MY OPINION.

sorry if I sounded un-lax...
I can assure you, I'm totally laxed

my comment is just that I love seeing my favorite actors working - and if they are sufficiently talented then I never find it a problem.

For instance, I'm a huge Kevin Kline fan, and if you see him in Sophie's Choice, and you see him in Pirates of Penzance, and THEN you see him in A Fish Called Wanda, then you have really seen such different characters and performances that I would think you wouldn't find it distracting...you would forget the previous performances while enjoying the current one.

I just personally think it would be a tragedy if Joss' best actors could never work with him again just because their old shows ended.

having said that, I will agree w/you that sometimes the characters seem too similar, I mean Knox was too much like what he had played in BtVS and Firefly...and Dobson too...

I think it was gina a few weeks back at a convention who mentioned that david boreanaz might have a role in the movie so the magazine has probably just picked up on that rumour I doubt they have any new info. Ive got to say though I would prefer him not to be in the film, nothing personal I think hes a great actor and I love angel but Id prefer the film to stay away from the buffy/angel connections as I think it might put a few people off seeing it.

If David Boreanaz does get into the movie, I will be hoping and praying he isn't someone with an accent. I'm imagining his 'Irish' accent, and I'm very scared.

Gotta agree to the point that yes, you can't help but think of previous characters when you see an actor in something else. I mean let's face it I'm still trying to figure out when Angel & Dido had their romantic fling. (OK I'm kidding) Especially in the Whedon Verse. Ner the less I like the idea of David B in Serenity. He's a great villan & just like Nathan in Buffy.

Well I *personally* think that if they just give David B. a good outfit, he won't look at all like Angel. Angel's got the black trenchcoat style thing going for him. Take that away, put him in an Alliance/doorman outfit, or one of those creepy corporation suits with blue hands, or put him in a swat outfit nishka style, and he'd look completely different. Also, a haircut or a beard could be arranged.

Trust me, the suit makes the man.

which explains why I loaf around in khakis and a t-shirt all day long... :P

Valid point - its a concern for all TV actors that make the leap to film, and I think for that reason its rare they make their first few leaps into a like genre (particularly difficult for those SF/Fantasy actors).

Duchovny avoided anything remotely X-Files like while with the series, then went for Evolution (which as a Ghostbusters fan I love - I know they are all the same movie remade over and over). I'm not sure if Patrick Stewart would have taken X-Men (even if he could have) while filming TNG, and even SMG went for some other roles before going for Scooby Doo (good call there then) -

my theory appears to break down around about the film Valentine, but its one of few exceptions I can think of.

First, everyone hasn't seen Angel.
Second, David is an ACTOR.

That's like saying that SMG shouldn't be cast as anything like a villian because she was Buffy.

If you're distracted seeing an actor play more than one role then it must be really difficult for you to watch TV or movies at all.

Tallgrrl, it's really a shame that everyone else who disagreed with me could do it in a civil way without being condescending and rude, but you couldn't. I'm not asking you to agree with me, or even try to, but there is such a thing as a point of view that differs from yours.

I'm not saying that they can't play other parts, they are actors and they need jobs, but I hold to my point that it would be distracting.

I'm also not saying that it would be "too distracting for me to deal with" or however you have interpreted it. I just think it would be mildly distracting and I would probably forget all about it after seeing a minute of him as a Firefly character anyway.

Next time I'll be sure to clarify exactly the degree of distraction so no one gets confused.

As far as this being a rumor, I believe the original rumor started on here after someone talked to Gina Torres at a sci-fi convention and reported that she said that he was going to be in the movie. Now this magazine is reporting as well and I am pretty sure they would have checked their sources twice so I see it as this is probably the real deal.

Usually there isn't really a reason to hide who is going to be in the movie unless the actors haven't signed the contracts.

Now this isn't official news but it is pretty damn close to being official.

Oh, and play Cantr II at www.cantr.net.

"I think that would be an absolutely horrendous idea since he is so recognizable as Angel. It would be really distracting."

Actually, anything that brings people to the box office is a Good Thing for FireFly. Boreanaz (I can't spell his last name either) is a Big Name, and a reasonable actor. He's probably also eager to show he can do something other than Vampire roles.

Even if it didn't make the best movie possible, what FireFly needs is the most successful movie possible.

Since when is David Boreanaz a big name I mean don't take this the wrong way I'm not saying that he's a bad actor but I haven't seen him in anything really big.

Dearheart,
I'm sorry if you thought I was being condescending or rude. It's too bad that one can't actually HEAR irony or a tongue planted firmly in one's cheek when one merely READS a post.
I hoped that the wink or grin emoticon would make my meaning clear, but apparently it hadn't.
Sorry if your feeling were hurt.
But hell, if I got distracted by an actor plying his craft, I'd never be able to watch a movie or go to the theatre, or watch TV!
