‘Melrose Place’ 2.0 … Ashlee Simpson Is HOW Old?

Here’s an extended preview of the Melrose Place remake that will air on The CW in the fall.

What’s good: The re-appearance of Michael Mancini (Thomas Calabro) and Sydney Andrews (Laura Leighton), especially in the scene where it’s clear Sydney is up to her old blackmailing tricks with Michael.

What’s not-so-hot: The nearly 25-year-old Ashlee Sinpson-Wentz‘s Violet is supposed to be four months out of high school, i.e. 18-ish? That’s as kookie as 26-year-old Ian Ziering playing high school student Steve on Beverly Hills 90210, an idea that became less and less believable the faster Ziering’s hairline receded, but which was still more believable than Jessica Simpson‘s sister looks playing an 18-year-old.

What do you think? Are you at all excited about this Melrose reboot?

The Next ‘Buffy’?

Don’t call it a remake. Don’t call it a sequel or a prequel (especially since Buffy papa Joss Whedon isn’t involved). Instead, like J.J. AbramsStar Trek, the upcoming Buffy the Vampire Slayer big-screen movie will be a reboot of the franchise, one that could lead to a series of movies and maybe even a new TV series.

But, who’ll fill Sarah Michelle Gellar (and to a lesser extent, original Buffy movie star Kristy Swanson‘s) shoes? The Hollywood Reporter throws out Megan Fox, Kristen Stewart, Jessica Stroup, Amanda Seyfried and Teresa Palmer as candidates, but if I were the Buffy producers, I’d take a look at seasons one and two of Chuck on DVD …

Yvonne Strahovski, as tough spy chick Sarah Walker, is the best TV action heroine since Jennifer Garner left the tube in Alias. In fact, Chuck premiered on NBC during the same season as the network’s ill-cast Bionic Woman remake, and I think if Strahovski had been the titular star of that show, it would have been a runaway hit.

As Chuck devotees, particularly the male ones, will tell you, Strahovski is one of those rare actresses who can serve up a side of vulnerability with her kick-assedness, which is an endearing quality and a key to playing the often emotionally tortured Buffy.

So Buffy fans, let’s hear it: Who should be cast as Buffy 3.0? Megan Fox? Big Love star Seyfried? Twilight‘s Stewart? Or do you agree that Chuck star Yvonne Strahovski should stake (pun totally intended) a claim to the role?
