Casting Call: Which actors would you cast to play DWTS (Tom Bergeron, Brooke Burke), SYTYCD (Nigel Lythgoe, Mary Murphy or Cat Deeley), or Buffy characters in the Movie Version of The Vampire Dancer Saga?

The Vampire Dancer SagaI’m working on having a script written for my newly published book, The Vampire Dancer Saga.  Who do you think will be great to cast in the spoofs of Dancing with the Stars, So You Think You Can Dance and Buffy the Vampire Slayer BTVS cast members?

Let’s see if you agree with my cast suggestions:

BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER
This casting is super EASY!  Let’s put most of the actors from the cancelled The Secret Circle back to work:

Mutant Weirdoes (SunniHell, CA)
Buff Dude (Vampire vanquisher)Chris Zylka
Angela (Vampire)
Zanadu (Glamour dancer)
Will Potter (Male witch from London)
Wiz (Werewolf)

Phoebe TonkinYou may have noticed that Buffy is now a Buff DUDE (she’s a man, baby) and Angel is now a GIRL (Angela).  Also Xander and Willow have switched genders as well.  With that in mind, here are my choices:

  • Buff Dude is now Chris Zylka (who played Jake Armstrong on The Secret Circle)
  • Angela is now Phoebe Tonkin (who played Faye Chamberlain on The Secret Circle)
  • Zanadu is now Shelley Hennig (who played Diana Meade on The Secret Circle)
    Will Potter is now Thomas Dekker (who played Adam Conant on The Secret Circle), hope you don’t mind a bit of red hair dye to look more like Willow, LOL
  • Wiz is now Gray Damon (who played Lee LaBeque on The Secret Circle)

Shelley HennigNext, let’s take a look at the “So You Think You Can Vamp” cast:

“Places everyone. Quiet please,” shouted host Bom Tergeron. With that, the judges, KarAnna, Blen & Runo from DWSDS and Ligel Nitchgow & Murph Mare from SYTYCV with special guest judge Triple T Debs took their places at the Judges Table.

  • For Mare Thomas DekkerMurph, I would recommend an actress who can dance such as Summer Glau.  We’ve seen her dance in episodes of Firefly, Angel and Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles.  She is a bit young to be Mare, but I bet she can shout HOT TAMALE TRAIN just like Mary!
  • For Ligel Nitchgow, I would recommend Anthony Steward Head from Buffy The Vampire Slayer.  Anthony is only 5 years younger than the “real” Nigel, so that would be perfect.  What is he up to these days anyway?
  • For Bom Tergeron, I would recommend Sean Maher from Firefly, Warehouse 13 and The Playboy Club.  He is 20 years younger than the “real” Tom but with a bit of gray hairs (ala George Clooney), he will look very handsome.Gray Damon

Kat Dealy replaced Rook Rurke as the co-host alongside Bom Tergeron for the 3000 Vampire Olympics Finals.  “Welcome Hepcats to our 3000 Vampire Olympic Finals. Let’s give a big hand to our JEEJEDGES,” announced Kat as the Special Guest judges took their seat. Bom cracked and said, “No one can understand your cockney British accent Kat, why don’t you just say: Judges?”

  • ForSummer Glau Kat Dealy, I would recommend Kaley Cuoco from Charmed and The Big Bang Theory.
  • For Rook Rurke, I would recommend Morena Baccarin from Firefly, V and Serenity,

Wow!  I just can’t get Buffy The Vampire Slayer and Firefly out of my head.  I love ANYTHING by the master producer JOSS WHEDON!!!
