Michelle Trachtenberg on Ewan McGregor, Nate Berkus and the 'bum grab'

Michelle Trachtenberg - current 'Gossip Girl' star and former Buffy alum - revealed an interesting tidbit in a recent interview with Nate Berkus.

We Buffy fans remember Michelle as Buffy's little sister, Dawn. Well she's all grown up now, with a hugely successful career and an endearing personality which shines through in the following video segment.

The interview is with former Oprah Show regular, Nate Berkus. Michelle relates an anectode involving a red-carpet charity event, Ewan McGregor and her bottom. Enjoy!

Pre-order the latest Dr Horrible Book by Zack Whedon

Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog - if you are not already aware - is a musical 'tragicomedy' short film produced exclusively for internet distribution. It tells the story of Dr. Horrible, an aspiring supervillain; Captain Hammer, his nemesis; and Penny, their mutual love interest. The movie was written by writer/director Joss Whedon, his brothers Zack Whedon (a television writer) and Jed Whedon (a composer), and actress Maurissa Tancharoen. The writing team penned the musical during the WGA writers' strike. The idea was to create something small and inexpensive, yet professionally done, in a way that would circumvent the issues that were being protested during the strike.

Dr. HorribleNow you can pre-order this collection of short stories by Zack Whedon, based on the Emmy award winning musical, about the earlier adventures of Captain Hammer, Penny and Dr Horrible.

You can also order the book or DVD of Dr Horrible's Singalong Blog from Amazon:

Buffy fan news and BtVS-related links

I have been trying to keep my finger on the pulse this week in relation to our favourite Buffy stars and topics. So, here are the things I have learned from keeping my ear to the ground and other items of interest I came across so far this September.

This week was the 8 year anniversary of Sarah Michelle Gellar's marriage to Freddy Prinze Jr. The couple met on the set of I Know What You Did Last Summer in 1997 and were officially married over the Labor Day weekend of 2002 in a fairly secretive ceremony. Of course, Sarah and Freddy have since had a baby girl, Charlotte. Happy Anniversary!

A GeekDad teaches us how to play the theme music from Joss Whedon's 'Firefly' on guitar. That says it all really.

Like trivia? The recent date of September 2nd 2010 reminded us all of the old fave from the 90s, Beverly Hills 90210. Why? Because the numbers of the date are 09-02-10. Seth Green (Oz from Buffy) and Emma Caulfield (Anya from Buffy) both made appearances on 90210. I also found out that certain scenes from both BtVS and Beverly Hills 90210 were filmed at the same place, Torrance High School in California.

Here's a great example of Buffy Fan Fiction, well written.

Neil Patrick Harris - technically not in Buffy, I know, but he is the star of Joss Whedon's Dr Horrible's Singalong Blog and Alyson Hannigan (Willow)'s co-star in How I Met Your Mother - (aka NPH or @actuallyNPH on twitter), is promoting his new 3D movie, The Smurfs, due out August 2011. Neil Patrick Harris also won 2 Emmy's last week - congrats! - here is an interview with NPH about his Emmy's.

Seth Green's latest project ControlTV

One of my faves in the entertainment industry, Seth Green, is now involved in a new reality TV concept. Buffy fans will remember Seth as Willow's love interest, the werewolf, Oz. Along with Matthew Senreich and Richard Saperstein, Seth is now producing an "online reality web experiment". Ford Motor Co. and Sprint Nextel will sponsor the project, "ControlTV". The hero of the piece - yet to be cast - will for 6 weeks be subject to the whims of the audience, who will direct the action through social media. ControlTV will reportedly debut before the year is out.
