“Angel” celebrates its 20th anniversary this October and in honor of that occasion, the cast of the WB drama is throwing out their own ideas for how they’d like to revive the “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” spinoff series, if given the chance.
“I’d like it to just be roaring down a freakin’ highway in, like, a ’68 Mustang,” David Boreanaz told Entertainment Weekly in an interview published Thursday, which included co-stars Charisma Carpenter, Amy Acker, Alexis Denisof, J. August Richards and James Marsters.
“I think the fascination of it is that you can really go anywhere with it. I really do,” said the actor, who played the Joss Whedon-created drama’s titular vampire detective, who drove a Black 1967 Plymouth Belvedere GTX convertible, by the way. “I just think it’d be fun to do a crazy kind of cool, freakin’ badass…”
Here’s where Carpenter, who played Cordelia “Cordy” Chase jumped in to say they could do a movie, “but I’m dead, would you guys bring me back?”
“The line of death is so thin in this universe,” Denisof — whose character, Wesley Wyndam-Pryce, is also deceased — said.
So even though by the series finale Cordy was dead, Wesley was dead, Gunn (Richards) was mortally wounded, and Fred (Acker) had become Illyria, anything is still possible.
And if you don’t get an actual revival, you can at least catch the “Angel” cast reuniting at New York Comic-Con this fall, minus Boreanaz.
