When a TV cast is good, it’s good. There’s nothing like a couple of co-stars who have such undeniable chemistry that it carries the show. Makes you believe in them. Makes you wish you could, like, look them up on Facebook long after the series finale. For fans of the original Beverly Hills 90210, this dream is sort of coming true. Co-stars Jennie Garth and Tori Spelling (who were BFFs on the show, and truly the only duo that stayed intact during the series’ decade-long run) are making a primetime comeback! They’re starring in a new ABC Family sitcom, Mystery Girls, where they’ll play “former co-stars on a ’90s TV show” who open a detective agency. Amaze. And it had us thinking — what if we could find out what our other favorite old school co-star characters are up to these days?
Buffy The Vampire Slayer
Some women can be real witches. They not only have that “sly, come hither stare,” but they can work an actual magic spell. In honor of Halloween, we’re counting down our 20 favorite sorceresses, witches, casters and enchantresses from film and television.
According to TVLine.com, on tonight’s episode of Glee, “The First Time,” both Rachel and Finn, and Kurt and Blaine will have sex for the first time. Given the way the show has been hit-or-miss this season, we’re crossing our fingers the episode lives up to the buildup, kinda the way young couples cross their fingers about losing their V-cards. And as we wait for the big moment, we thought we’d bide our time by looking back at all the other great “losing it” moments in TV teen history.
Beverly Hills, 90210: Brenda loses it to Dylan in “Spring Dance” (Season 1)
“How many girls get to have sex for the first time with someone they love?” Brenda asks Dylan, before they do the deed in a hotel room while the dance is still going on. His smooth reply: “I don’t know. I’ve never really taken an opinion poll.”
Could the stupidest girl on Glee wind up the sexiest vampire-killer in Sunnydale? Heather Morris told Access Hollywood last week that she’s in the running to play Buffy, The Vampire Slayer in an upcoming cinematic reboot of Joss Whedon‘s classic TV show. “They’re considering me! I found out and I almost peed my pants ‘cause I was so excited!” Ah, see Brittany would have actually peed herself, assuming she now had to kill Robert Pattinson.
Threats of public urination aside, Morris sounds like she realizes her casting would be a leap. “If they make [the movie] when [Glee] is on hiatus, I don’t even care what I do. I can just run through the shot and do nothing—even if I’m not Buffy!” Sounds like a real fan, though not one of the ones starting online petitions begging producers not to screw with the adored franchise. As much as we hate to typecast, how about they cast her as Phoebe in a Friends reboot instead? That we’d buy.
