BUFFY
 
BY STEVE JUSTICE
 

Rumors abound that the latest season of the once hit show Buffy the Vampire Slayer may very well be its last. Ratings are slipping, star Sarah Michelle Gellar's contract is up and her co-stars are eager to trade in their small screen successes for a shot at the big time in major box office blockbusters. One look at the cast's collected forays into the world of film, and it's obvious each member is well on his or her way to superstardom. Read along, and you'll see what I mean.

Sarah Michelle Gellar
Following small parts in critically acclaimed classics including Funny Farm and High Stakes, a young Sarah Michelle took the world by storm as the irascible Kendall Hart Lang Henry at All My Children. While there, she perfected her skill alongside the exalted mistress of the small screen, Susan Lucci. It's no wonder Gellar has already transcended the world of Whedon to light up the screen in fine films such as Simply Irresistible, Harvard Man and Scooby Doo. It's only a matter of time before the Academy takes notice.

Alyson Hannigan
Ever since her childhood appearance in the Dan Aykroyd / Kim Basinger farce My Stepmother is an Alien, Hannigan has been perched on the edge of greatness. While her turn on Buffy has elicited a wide range of riveting performances, it's in her work in the comedic powerhouses American Pie and American Pie 2 that Hannigan truly has begun to glow. As long as Hollywood continues to tell such touching stories about the love between a girl and her flute, Hannigan is sure to shine.

Nicholas Brendan
As the most misunderstood member of this talented cast, Brendan has yet to find his foothold in Tinseltown. Unfortunately, his many talents have been somewhat misused in the misfires Psycho Beach Party and Demon Island. Surely, the best is yet to come.

James Marsters
Outside of Buffy, Marsters has yet to produce a significant body of work. His filmwork has been limited to Chance, an independent masterpiece written and directed by former Buffy co-star Amber Benson. (Benson also stars in the film.) Perhaps Marsters will make his mark in the music world. He fronts the rock band Ghost of the Robot whose album will soon be released. Dogstar beware!

Emma Caulfield
Prior to popping up on Buffy, Caulfield was somewhat of a journeyman of the small screen. Her resume includes appearances on Silk Stalkings, Renegade, Nash Bridges, Beverly Hills, 90210 and General Hospital. Recently she spread her wings and showed she's ready for the spotlight with a bold departure from Buffy in the feature film Darkness Falls. In the movie, Caulfield shows her range by boldly battling the evil Tooth Fairy.
