Why “Ringer” Felt A Touch Disappointing

All summer, I have been oh so excited for Sarah Michelle Gellar‘s return to television in “Ringer,” a show about a recovering alcoholic twin on the run from the mob who seizes the opportunity to assume her estranged sister’s life after she commits suicide. Last night, the show finally premiered on The CW. And overall, my feelings on it were … mixed. (If you haven’t watched yet, be warned—SPOILERS ahead.) Keep reading »

Sarah Michelle Gellar Loves New TV Show More Than She Expected

“I didn’t realize how much I miss the atmosphere until I started back. There’s something about television—seeing the same people everyday, looking forward to the scripts. I’m loving it more than I thought I was going to … I want to be able to go home at night and see my daughter,I want to be there for her first day of school and her school recital. Television offers me that — they’re amazing at working around schedules. All of the big milestones I’m there for.”

Sarah Michelle Gellar talks about life on the set of her new show, “Ringer,” years after wrapping “Buffy the Vampire Slayer.” Wait a second—I had no idea that she and husband Freddie Prince Jr. had a baby. But, yes, they do! Her name is Charlotte and she is 22 months. And Freddie is staying home with her while her mama works. Cute! Now, where have I been? [People] Keep reading »

Sarah Michelle Gellar Times Two In “Ringer”

Comic-Con 2011 kicks off today with panels for “Breaking Dawn,” “Game of Thrones,” “Dexter,” and much more. But perhaps the most anticipated panel of the day will be for Sarah Michelle Gellar‘s return to network television, “Ringer.” The panel will be going down at 1:45 p.m., but The CW has released the first poster for the show this morning. Almost as exciting as the fact that the show stars Buffy as two characters? Nester Carbonell, aka Richard Alpert of “Lost,” is in it too! Hawt. Keep reading »

Sarah Michelle Gellar Gets The Winkelvoss Treatment In “Ringer”

“The second you take away fight sequences … let me tell you something, your days lighten up a lot. Also, the girl playing my twin sister is always on time, always hits her marks, always knows her lines, always agrees with everything I say—they’re some of the easiest scenes I’ve ever filmed. I can’t believe how far visual effects have come—it’s been a while since I’ve been this involved. It’s much faster but it’s still a learning process with face replacement technology. Yet I hug my myself, I lay my head on her shoulder, there’s so much you can do. I thought it would be old school Patty Duke, like [sings] “We’re cousins!” It’s not like that anymore.”

Sarah Michelle Gellar talks about her new show, “Ringer,” in which she plays twin sisters, one who assumes the other’s life. Overall, she says playing two separate people is still easier than doing Buffy the Vampire Slayer‘s fight scenes. [PopWrap]

All Up In The Upfronts: The Fall Shows We Are Pumped For, Part 4

Okay, fine, I’ll admit it. I’m a little mad at The CW for canceling “Hellcats,” the show starring Aly Michalka and Ashley Tisdale as competitive college cheerleaders that happened to be loosely based on my book, CHEER!. That said, I’m getting over it because they are bringing two of my favorites—Sarah Michelle Gellar and Rachel Bilson—back to the small screen after years off the air.

After the jump, check out the network’s new offerings that we will absolutely be DVRing. Keep reading »

Buffy Who? Sarah Michelle Gellar To Star In A New Thriller Series

Over the weekend, I got sucked into a “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” marathon on Oxygen. The classic vampire show was, in a word, amazing and Sarah Michelle Gellar was the perfect mix of kick-butt and vulnerable, with spot-on comedic timing. So why has her career tanked? Luckily, Sarah has a new show in the works—CBS’ “Ringer.” (Which bears no relationship to “The Ring.”) In this now-greenlit thriller series, Sarah plays twin sisters, uber-troubled Bridget and wealthy, perfect Siobhan, who had a big falling out for some mysterious reason. When Siobhan dies in a boating accident, troubled Bridget steps in and assumes her life, even sleeping in the same bed with her husband, only to find that she has a bounty on her head, too.
