Sarah Michelle Gellar Is Stan's Avatar Girlfriend for Steve on 'American Dad' (VIDEO)

'American Dad' - 'Virtual In-Stanity'Stan Smith has come up with a lot of stupid ideas over the years on 'American Dad' (Sun., 9:30PM ET on FOX), but this may well be the stupidest. In a nod so deliberate to 'Avatar' they came right out and admitted it, Stan decided to try and spend more time with his son Steve by becoming a teenage girl.

This was after he realized he'd missed every major moment of Steve's life so far and Francine told him that as a teenager, hot girls were all Steve was interested in. So Stan became an avatar, voiced by Sarah Michelle Gellar, in order to hang out with Steve.

Siobhan Discovers What Bridget Already Knows on 'Ringer' (VIDEO)

'Ringer' - 'If You Ever Want a French Lesson'To this point, 'Ringer' (Tue., 9PM ET on The CW) has mostly been Bridget's story, with the occasional crytpic jaunt to Paris to check in on her twin sister Siobhan. Quite frankly, at times it's looking like Shiv is trying to kill her own sister, but maybe that's what they want us to think.

One thing that may have slipped our radar, or maybe we just assumed she already knew, was that Siobhan was pregnant. Remember now everyone thinks Bridget is and she's kind of playing along.

Well, when Siobhan suddenly got sick while scoring with some random dude, she took a pregnancy test and realized what we'd already known. Will this throw a kink in whatever her plans are. On an impulse, she even called Henry -- the guy who's not her husband that she was sleeping with -- but didn't say anything.

Sarah Michelle Gellar Is Playing Identical Twins on 'Ringer,' But Thinks They're Creepy (VIDEO)

by Alex Moaba, posted Sep 27th 2011 5:00PM
Sarah Michelle Gellar is playing twins Bridget and Siobhan Martin on her new CW thriller 'Ringer,' but she told 'Rachael Ray' (weekdays, syndicated) that having a real-life identical twin would freak her out.

"The whole duality is so interesting, because everybody is one way at work and you're one way at home. And being twins ... could you imagine someone who looked exactly like you? I think that's creepy actually," Gellar said.

On 'Ringer,' the twin sisters (obviously) look identical, but have very different personalities. Gellar she wouldn't want a real-life identical twin, but joked that she wouldn't mind having a drag impersonator, or even a male fraternal twin.

Sarah Michelle Gellar Went Into Labor During Pilates Class (VIDEO)

Sarah Michelle Gellar, 'Chelsea Lately'When your baby is ready to come, it's ready to come. And as we've seen on 'I Didn't Know I Was Pregnant,' it is sometimes a surprise to the expectant mother as well. In Sarah Michelle Gellar's case, as she detailed on 'Chelsea Lately' (Weeknights, 11PM ET on E!), her surprise came during a pilates class.

"I thought I was just really uncomfortable, but it turns out I was having a baby," she said.

Even afterward, she didn't believe she was really in labor when she went to the hospital. As it turns out, she was already in the process of delivering the baby.

"They said if you have another baby you better sit on the hospital steps at eight months and cross your legs," she said. Of course, we're not surprised that Buffy Summers slays at giving birth.

'Ringer': Sarah Michelle Gellar Tackles Twin Role in New Thriller Series

by Stephanie Earp, posted Sep 21st 2011 9:00AM

The highlight of the fall premiere season for me so far is 'Ringer' - and I'm so glad. I wanted to like it and was worried I wouldn't, but the pilot impressed me. I like the film noir feel, the fantastic cinematography and the (admittedly plot-heavy) set-up for a cracking good thriller. Like so many others, I loved Sarah Michelle Gellar as Buffy, but I've been underwhelmed by her film roles, and began to doubt if she could anchor anything without Joss Whedon's writing to guide her.

But it turns out she's perfectly cast as a recovering addict who is exhausted and run-down, but still has glimmers of spunk. Gellar's Bridget is a nice person, but weak. She doesn't make choices so much as she lets circumstances wash over her. It's frustrating to watch, and she's not the easiest character to sympathize with.

'Ringer' Premiere: Sarah Michelle Gellar Brings Twice the Thrills (VIDEO)

'Ringer' - 'Pilot'['Ringer' S01/E01 -- 'Pilot']

'The Lying Game' may have done the twin switch thing on television a few weeks ago for ABC Family, but it couldn't come close to matching the slick production and dense plot layering we saw with the series premiere of 'Ringer' (Tue., 9PM ET on The CW).

Sarah Michelle Gellar made her much-anticipated return to television with a role so big, she had to get two parts. And while sisters Siobhan and Bridget only shared a couple of scenes together, Gellar proved rather adept at carrying on an emotional conversation with herself, such as it is.

Sarah Michelle Gellar's Daughter Really Doesn't Like Being in a Dirty Diaper (VIDEO)

Sarah Michelle Gellar, 'Late Night with Jimmy Fallon'One thing new parents have to get comfortable with right away is poop. It's gross, but it's the reality of parenthood, and sometimes it isn't pretty. But it can certainly make for some memorable moments, as Sarah Michelle Gellar proved on 'Late Night' (Weeknights, 12:37AM ET on NBC).

Luckily, her story about her daughter's aversion to poopy diapers didn't get too graphic, but it did culminate in a very bizarre statement. Baby Gellar is two years old now, which means that for nearly two years Gellar has been dealing with the baby managing to get out of her dirty diaper in the night.

Gellar admitted she even resorted to duct-taping the diaper to the baby before bedtime, but it was no use. So while it wasn't a surprise the other morning to come in and see her daughter free of the diaper, what did surprise her was what her daughter said.

Review: Sarah Michelle Gellar Makes Her TV Comeback in the Risky 'Ringer'

by Maureen Ryan, posted Sep 12th 2011 11:30AM
Facts must be faced: 'Ringer,' Sarah Michelle Gellar's new identity-switcheroo drama, is a little bit silly.

'Ringer' (9PM ET Tuesday, the CW) isn't terrible. But it's less than it could be, and it has yet to present viewers with compelling reasons for putting up with its contrivances.

Props to 'Ringer' for even attempting a film noir atmosphere on a CW budget, but when a noir doesn't have a sense of visual flair or the right tone of wounded melancholy -- yet takes itself seriously -- it can quickly start to feel mildly cheesy, if not ponderous.

In 'Ringer,' Gellar plays identical twins, and if you value your health, you won't do a shot every time one of her characters is shown in a mirror. (Get it? Two sisters! Identical twins! Mirror images! Get it?)

Sarah Michelle Gellar Doubles Your Pleasure: When Actresses Tackle Dual Roles

by Stephanie Earp, posted Aug 30th 2011 2:00PM
After 8 years away from TV, Sarah Michelle Gellar returns this fall in 'Ringer,' one of the more talked-about pilots of the season. Never one to back away from a challenge, our girl comes back not as one character, but two -- identical twins Bridget and Siobhan. As SMG herself pointed out at Comic-Con, she's doing this for the love of the game, not the paycheck (only soap stars get paid extra when they take on an evil twin/clone/long lost cousin side project). In honor of her noble dedication to her craft, here's a few other actresses who've gotten multiple listings in a TV credit.

Sarah Michelle Gellar Returning to 'All My Children'

Sarah Michelle GellarWho says you can't go home again? Sarah Michelle Gellar is heading back to Pine Valley. The 'Ringer' actress confirmed she's returning to her former 'All My Children' stomping grounds before the daytime staple goes off the air.

But when Gellar returns to 'AMC,' it won't be as Kendall.

"I have no idea what I'm doing or who I'm playing. I told them I don't want to be Kendall; that's Alicia's [Minshew] role now," she said Thursday. "I just wanted to be a part of it."

Gellar won a Daytime Emmy for playing Kendall, the daughter of Erica Kane (Susan Lucci). Prior to joining 'Buffy the Vampire Slayer,' Gellar played Kendall for roughly two years. The role has since been taken over by Alicia Minshew.

Jane After Dark: Top five Buffy hookups

by Jane Boursaw, posted May 2nd 2009 10:10AM
Buffy and Spike - Sarah Michelle Gellar and James MarstersLast week, I devoted my first Jane After Dark column to my top five Buffy moments. I was thrilled to read all the responses, both here on TV Squad and at Whedonesque, where the post was picked up. Fans of Buffy the Vampire Slayer are a passionate bunch!

This week, I thought it would be fun to delve into my favorite Buffy hookups. One that didn't make the list but holds a special place in my heart is Giles and Joyce. It was a fleeting moment, but one that was fun and would have made for great storytelling had it continued.

But who to pair Buffy up with -- Spike, Angel or Riley? What about Spike and Drusilla? And while Willow and Tara had a special love affair, there's a lot to be said for Willow and Oz. And what of Xander? Sure, he and Anya had a fun romance, but his hookups with Cordelia and even Faith were intense in their own way.

Oh the choices! Read on for my thoughts, and please add your own in the comments below.

Jane After Dark: Top five Buffy moments

by Jane Boursaw, posted Apr 25th 2009 11:02AM
Buffy the Vampire Slayer - Top 5 MomentsI'm starting a new column here on TV Squad called "Jane After Dark." Some of you know I work the "night shift" here at the Squad, editing and scheduling posts into the wee hours. I'm a big multi-tasker, so I also use those hours to get caught up on all the great shows I've missed along the way.

Over the past year, I've watched some really cool shows, including Six Feet Under, The Sopranos, Moonlight, Weeds, Entourage, Gossip Girl, and many others. So I thought it would be fun to write about my After Dark musings, and I hope you'll chime in with your own thoughts about whatever I'm watching.

I just finished Joss Whedon's magnificent Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and I loved so many things about the show. No one could look as stylish as Buffy as she slayed those vampires. Angel and Spike were both hot in their own way. The love between Willow and Tara was sweet and gentle, but also powerful. And the characters continued to grow and evolve throughout the series. By the last episode, you really felt like you knew these characters and had grown right along with them.

Buffy's Sarah Michelle Gellar heading back to TV

by Mike Moody, posted Mar 9th 2009 2:00PM
sarah michelle gellar maladysBuffy the Vampire Slayer alum Sarah Michelle Gellar is starring in an HBO comedy pilot called The Wonderful Maladys, about a group of dysfunctional New York siblings. The project also stars Nate Corddry (Rob's little brother) and Swingtown vet Molly Parker.

We don't know much about the show's concept yet, but I'm looking forward to it. Being a Buffy fan, anything Sarah Michelle Gellar does instantly pops on my radar. So far, Gellar's post-Buffy career has delivered a few tedious big screen horror thrillers like The Grudge and The Return, but I loved her comic performance in Richard Kelly's Southland Tales. That performance, along with some of her funnier bits from Buffy, have me convinced that Gellar would make a great comedic lead.

Charles Randolph (The Interpreter) wrote the pilot script and TV vet Alan Taylor (Mad Men, Big Love) is directing. Gellar is executive producing the project, which will be shot early next year.

Sarah Michelle Gellar returns to TV

by Thomas DiChiara, posted Sep 26th 2008 5:08PM
Sarah Michelle Gellar The erstwhile Buffy the Vampire Slayer star is eying a return to the small screen with a half-hour dramedy pilot at HBO, entitled Wonderful Maladys.

According to Variety, the New York-set show will revolve around three adult siblings who lost their parents at a very early age.

Screenwriter Charles Randolph, who wrote the script with Gellar in mind, describes her character as having "a kind of zealous immaturity -- like a drug addict with a to-do list." Sounds just peachy.

The project, which is aiming to shoot its pilot early next year, marks Gellar's first regular TV gig since Buffy ended in 2003 -- though she's appeared on episodes of The Simpsons and Robot Chicken since. Think she'll slay it? Sound off below.

It's all Buffy's fault!

by Allison Waldman, posted Aug 26th 2008 3:44PM
BuffyRemember when rock 'n roll was to blame for teenagers being out of control? What about when John Lennon's quote about The Beatles being as big as Jesus drew the ire of the church and resulted in deejays advocating the destruction of LPs and singles?

Well, here's another missive from an "authority figure" about how pop culture is ruining today's youth. Sociologist Kristin Aune claims that Buffy, the Vampire Slayer is responsible for young women not attending church.

Dr. Aune, who's written Women and Religion in the West, and is a teacher at the University of Derby (that's in the U.K.), doesn't know if Buffy has also affected young men. Her research doesn't address if boys are abandoning the church, too, so I guess they're safe.

This is no joke, although it does sound like a good way to promote a book that would otherwise be ignored. Mentioning Buffy is a good way to let the world know that Dr. Aune wrote it.
