Should Sarah Michelle Gellar Return to TV?

Sarah Michelle Gellar has enough movies in the works to convince Maxim that she'll be the woman of the year in 2008, but apparently she's already looking to get back to the small screen. E! online is reporting (well, really just teasing) that SMG isn't all that psyched about the movie scripts she's been reading and is now checking out TV scripts too. So what do you think — should Sarah Michelle Gellar Return to TV?

The fact that she can't seen to transcend Buffy even after all this time should mean TV. If she has the right part the week to week showings might give her enough time to convince people she can play another role just as convincingly. As it is people only go to see her in movies because she used to be Buffy. Can't believe I was actually nice there, I have default 'meh' setting where she's concerned. But seriously, convince in another role or just go into producing and do us a favour.

It'd be great to see her on the small screen again, but I've got to wonder what type of role she'd go for. It'd have to be something completely different to what she's done in the past for me to check it out. If it's just another Buffy incarnation, I'm not interested. Been there, done that.

I look at her like I do Jennifer Aniston. They are made for TV. I don't like Sarah Michelle Gellar, so I wouldn't watch anything her no matter what anyhow.

I don't buy this story. That said... pinkflats - She has received good movie scripts that she has apparently turned down for example Stardust. Some of what she's getting is what she wants. Scooby Doo was a script she wanted to do...however the script turned out to be vastly different from the film. The original script was a treatment for a raunchy adult parody not a kid's flick. The studios got a hold of it though and realised they could make more money if it was a family film instead. The Grudge was also a script she wanted because she got to spend time in Japan among other things. I don't think movie execs can go to Natalie Portman, Kiera Knightly (period-piece girl) and Anna Hathaway (does she even get that many offers?) for everything. In fact, I don't think they go to Kiera and Anna for most films, Natalie Portman maybe...I haven't really seen Anne Hathaway in anything big since Devil Wears Prada. There are actresses out there in Sarah's age range that have been around forever and are working on projects they believe in. Sarah who has been in the business since she was five, 25 out of her 30 years; it's not like this is a person who JUST made it. She was also very critically acclaimed on BtVS and there are many critics impressed with her. They haven't been impressed with her film choices but that's not to say they don't think highly of her. If you've read the recent reviews for her film, Southland Tales, she had a lot of praise across the board for her comedic timing and her acting. ST was also a script and a film she wanted to do that didn't turn out how she'd hoped. If you know anything about the business, you'll realise that good scripts don't necessarily end up as good films and vice versa. Knocking it out of the park with a good film takes a bit of luck. She seems to choose interesting projects initially but many of them don't seem to pan out. I'm not sure what you mean "go back to where they were" considering Sarah was probably more talked about by the end of Buffy-Grudge period than she currently is. Going back to where she was would mean working the same long hours she worked on BtVS and perhaps being even more well known. TV stars aren't exactly hurting for fame or money. I don't even think she wants to be that famous considering she makes the choice to stay out of the spotlight when she isn't working. She's been in the business for years, knows how to works and treats it strictly as a job. She's an actor because she loves acting, not because she necessarily needs to or want to be famous and there are many actors out there who are exactly like that. She seemingly wants interesting projects and whether or not she gets that from film or TV has yet to be seen. A film career and TV career don't have to be mutually exclusive and don't have to be all about "getting famous".

She should definntely bring back "Buffy", and kick some serious butt, imagine all the other so called slayer's facing some original behemoth and failing miserably, now here comes "Buffy and Spike and the original gang to the rescue of humanity. I couldn't stand that they made all thhese nobody's Slayer's, they didn't know anything, and Spike was the best and a perfect match for Buffy. Please bring back Buffy and Spike.

She was amazing on Buffy. I think there may be more opportunities for good roles in tv movies. She would do also very well in a weekly drama.

Her movie roles have mostly sounded really terrible (not to mention totally typecast), and she seems better on the small screen anyway. I hope she finds something interesting, but if not, at least we have Buffy.

I'm not sure if she's a good actress, but she's a really cute person, so she shouldn't do something too big more something like Friends

not a fan of her movies. the Grudge stunk. But Buffy was the greatest show ever! If she wants to make a Buffy movie, then stay in movies. Otherwise, time to call Uncle Joss and relive the magic. P.S. Guys, yes she is 'legally' Sarah Michelle Prinz, but she has a d.b.a designation of 'Sarah Michelle Gellar' it's not uncommon for people to perform under names that aren't really their names.
