''Buffy'' ten years later

We find out what Sunnydale’s alums have been up to since the show debuted a decade ago

Posted on

1 DAVID BOREANAZ (ANGEL)
He’s gone from portraying the undead to investigating the dead on Fox’s Bones. Next, Boreanaz will take a big-screen desk job, appearing as a freeloading writer in the dark comedy Suffering Man’s Charity, directed by his costar Alan Cumming.

2 SARAH MICHELLE GELLAR (BUFFY)
Heeding that whole pen-is-mightier adage, Gellar voices a journalist in TMNT and plays a magazine drone in Suburban Girl, an adaptation of The Girls’ Guide to Hunting and Fishing (which debuts April 27 at the Tribeca Film Fest). She’ll then star as a comatose man’s wife in Addicted (Sept. 5) and a porn star in Southland Tales, opposite Justin Timberlake.

3 ALYSON HANNIGAN (WILLOW)
Who hasn’t been enjoying the Scooby Gang’s bewitched sidekick as the most awesome girlfriend ever on CBS’ How I Met Your Mother?

4 ANTHONY STEWART HEAD (GILES)
The bookish Watcher is flirting with mortality again, this time with a role in Tim Burton’s 2008 serial-killer musical Sweeney Todd. He also has smaller films in his future: a gangster update of Macbeth, in which he plays a seedy villain, and the romantic comedy Sparkle, starring Stockard Channing.

5 NICHOLAS BRENDON (XANDER)
The series’ resident wisecracker is sticking with genre fare, popping up in the indie horror flick Unholy and voicing a character called #89 for Disney Channel’s ‘toon American Dragon: Jake Long.

6 CHARISMA CARPENTER (CORDELIA)
Attention Football Wives: Buffy‘s Token Bitchy Cheerleader is now all but MIA from her gig as an opportunistic trophy wife on the languishing Veronica Mars. We suggest you snap her up before your ABC-soap cousin Ugly Betty does.
