Christmas comes early for fans of Seth Green this year: On Sunday, Robot Chicken’s Atm Christmas Special premieres (Adult Swim, midnight Et), and on Monday, he reunites with his Buffy the Vampire Slayer costar Alyson Hannigan on How I Met Your Mother (CBS, 8 p.m. Et).
Entertainment Weekly: This is your first time acting opposite Alyson on-screen since Buffy.
Seth Green: Since then, yes. But Aly and I have worked together since we were teenagers. I think she was 11 or 12, and I was like 13 when we met. We did a movie called My Stepmother is an Alien , and »

Though she's known these days as the sweet and innocent Lily on the CBS sitcom "How I Met Your Mother," Alyson Hannigan's biggest contribution to pop culture is indisputably her role as the sweet and not-so-innocent Michelle Flaherty in the "American Pie" franchise.
Her character's big reveal at the climax of the classic 1999 teen comedy, in which the audience's (and protagonist Jim's) perception of her goes from tame to over-the-top with one unforgettable "band camp" story, is a scene that has achieved near mythic status among millennial moviegoers, and we've all got a special place in our hearts for her because of it. However, Hannigan's very first starring role came more than a decade before she rocked Jason Biggs' world, in the sci-fi comedy "My Stepmother Is an Alien."
At the time it was a big career boost for the then 14 year-old actress, who had only appeared briefly »

Over the past few months I’ve been revisiting Chris Carter’s classic science fiction TV series The X-Files on DVD and besides jogging my memory as to just how good of a pairing David Duchovny’s Fox Mulder and Gillian Anderson’s Dana Scully made, I’ve found myself surprised at the number of famous faces who’ve cropped up across the series’ nine-season run.
Now I’m not talking about those guest stars who were already firmly established (or pretty much on their way) by the time they made an appearance – the likes of Bruce Campbell (The Evil Dead), Brad Dourif (One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest), R. Lee Ermey (Full Metal Jacket), David Faustino (Married… with Children), Terry O’Quinn (The Stepfather), Burt Reynolds (Deliverance), Kurtwood Smith »
With "Midnight in Paris," Woody Allen's comic look at nostalgia and its limitations, having earned four Oscar nominations last week (including nods for Best Picture, Allen's direction and his original screenplay), it's a good time to take a look back at Allen's 1987 comedy "Radio Days." Another comic take on nostalgia, "Radio Days" is now officially a golden oldie itself, having been released exactly 25 years ago, on January 30, 1987. A fond look, filtered through memory, of a 1940s New York childhood, the radio broadcasts that captivated audiences back then, and the behind-the-scenes gossip about the performers who voiced them, "Radio Days" may be best known today for launching the career of Seth Green -- then a 12-year-old who played the Allen-like narrator as a boy. But there's also a wealth of little-known true stories behind the film, some of them from Allen's own life, some from classic radio lore, and some »
