Get ready for the new daily show

What We Do in the Shadows star really wants Sarah Michelle Gellar to play Buffy the Vampire Slayer in the show…

Anyone whose been reading Following the Nerd for a while will know that we love a good crossover… and here’s a potential beauty!

So, What We Do in the Shadows star Harvey Guillén, who plays Guillermo, a descendant of the legendary vampire hunter Abraham Van Helsing, stumbled across a piece of fan art (not the one above, that’s one I threw together for the story) that put Guillermo out hunting with none other than that other legendary Vampire Slayer, Buffy Summers, played by the slightly awesome Sarah Michelle Gellar and, once he saw it, he couldn’t shake off how much he wanted it to happen.

“It’d be like, here comes Buffy! And Buffy comes out of retirement to help him and pass over the baton of being the Slayer,” Guillén says.

“They’d be so cool fighting evil side-by-side. Who knows, the possibilities are endless. Just get Sarah Michelle Gellar to the show. There’s some really cool work where like, someone put Buffy and Guillermo back to back fighting an army of vampires. I saw it and I literally got little goosebumps because I was like, ‘This is so cool.'”

Now, before we all chuckle at this idea, hear me out.

This show has already dipped into the world of onscreen vampires and, technically, that included Buffy.

In the show’s seventh episode we met the Vampiric Council and in there was a lot of famous faces including Paul Reubens who played Amilyn in the Buffy movie. he was joined by the likes of True Blood star Evan Rachel Wood, From Dusk Til Dawn’s Danny Trejo and they even had the daddy himself… Wesley Snipes.

Now, true, these guys weren’t all playing their actual movie vampire counterparts, but the fans got the hint.

So, with that in mind, and Gellar recently adding her vocal talents to the likes of Star Wars Rebels and now Masters of the Universe: Revelation, I wouldn’t rule this out. Not one little bit.

Anyway, how would you feel about Buffy existing in this absurd universe? I want to hear your thoughts, folks.

Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
