Sarah Michelle Gellar held her growing baby bump while filming The Wonderful Maladys in Harlem yesterday. She has her big return to the small screen this Fall, but meanwhile the character that made her famous is making news with rumors of a Buffy movie remake. As of now, the film doesn't involve SMG, and the actress can focus her attention on her supposed baby girl coming soon.
Sarah Michelle Gellar was still hard at work filming her new show The Wonderful Maladys in NYC yesterday and today, but she managed to fit in a break to spend a little quality time with her husband, Freddie Prinze Jr. The parents-to-be looked happy in each other's company as they explored the set together. The wardrobe department is doing a good job of covering up SMG's growing baby bump so far but there's no hiding that unmistakable glow.

Sara Michelle Gellar showed off a new haircut on the set of her new show, The Wonderful Maladys, in NYC earlier today. She kept her new baby bump well hidden under her costumes and looked happy as she sipped away on her drink. She's got plenty to look forward to, and we're equally excited to see SMG back on the small screen and get a glimpse of her and Freddie's new arrival as the growing family is back in the spotlight.
It's not that surprising anymore to wake up to the news that actor Adam Scott has another job. For years, he was one of my favorite "that guy"s in Hollywood, playing a brief love interest of David Fisher's on Six Feet Under (remember "happy holidays from the Fisher-Coopers"?) and popping up in small roles everywhere from Veronica Mars to Knocked Up to Art School Confidential.
But with today's news that Scott's been cast in HBO's The Wonderful Maladys as Sarah Michelle Gellar's character's ex, I figured it was time to take a broader look at why I'm loving Scott so much these days. It's not just that he keeps showing up in TV shows and movies I like — though that's true, too, starting with HBO's Tell Me You Love Me last year and continuing with Party Down this year.
It's that he might be my favorite Hollywood jerk.
I mean, not him, per se. I'm sure he's a very nice guy. But he's somehow able to play horrible people in a way that makes me squeal with delight even when I know I shouldn't be rooting for his character. I'm not sure there's anyone in Hollywood right now who does self-centered, righteous confidence better than Scott; it's something in his dry line delivery, and it makes me laugh (or, in the case of Tell Me You Love Me, squirm uncomfortably) every time.
In this recent interview, Scott talks about playing the ultimate jerk: Derek in Step Brothers. He mentions that Adam McKay and Will Ferrell created a character who was awful from the start, then encouraged him to be more and more horrible, the worst person he could imagine. Maybe it's scary that he's so successful at it, but it sure is fun to watch.
So, while there's no confirmation that Scott's character in Maladys is a jerk, my fingers are crossed. It just seems like that would be best for all of us.
How do you get Sarah Michelle Gellar back on TV? Apparently, you write an intriguing script for HBO — with her in mind from the start.
That's how writer Charles Randolph wooed Gellar to HBO for a pilot called The Wonderful Maladys. The half-hour show centers on three siblings living in New York who lost their parents at a young age. Gellar's character is described as having "a kind of zealous immaturity — like a drug addict with a to-do list."
Randolph also wrote The Interpreter and The Life of David Gale, and Gellar called the chance to work with him and HBO "a terrific next chapter for me." HBO is looking to shoot the pilot early next year, and if the show goes forward, Gellar would also be an executive producer.
Are you ready to see Gellar back on TV? Is this the kind of role you pictured for her?
