As one of the most popular Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel novelists, author Nancy Holder is, quite naturally, a massive fan of creator Joss Whedon's work. So when I recently interviewed Holder, I made sure to have the horror scribe name the top 5 Buffy episodes. See if you agree with her when you check out her list after the jump. Here's Nancy Holder on her Top 5 Buffy the Vampire Slayer episodes... "1.) I'd had to say 'Passion'. 2.) I'd have to say 'The Body'. 3.) You just kind of have to honorarily mention 'Once More with Feeling'. 4.) And I love the 'Becoming' arc, 'Becoming' 1 and 2. 5.) And 'The Gift'... I love a lot of Buffy. I mean I love all of »
Aaron's Quick Bite: "I come from a big family of cooks. We are very serious about our dinners."
Aaron's Mealtime Memory:
"I love cooking dinner with my twin sister, Angel, but she always tries to take over the kitchen and kick me out. Truth be told, I make a better steak than she does - I add the right amount of butter to the pan to give the meat a crusty char. But she makes some mean mashed potatoes. I remember my mom videotaping us during a family dinner when we were both 3 years old. Angel was so tired that she passed out right into the mashed potatoes on her plate! Ever since then she's taken this strange liking to them. »

The ABC Family series The Lying Game returns for the second half of Season 1 with Episode 1.11: O Twin, Where Art Tho? on Monday, January 2 at 8 Pm Et. Actress Charisma Carpenter, who plays Ann Rebecca Sewell on the series, recently held a conference call where she discussed the second half of The Lying Game's first season. Here's what she had to say.
Can you give us some insight into why Annie has been gone so long and her relationship with Phyllis?
Charisma Carpenter: Her relationship with Phyllis is sister. She's been gone so long because I think when she was there, she was in high school, and things did not go well for her. She was treated poorly, not well received. I think some very bad things happened to her and what they are exactly has not at this point been revealed to me. It's just touched on »

When The Lying Game returns to ABC Family next year, things are really going to be shaken up. Sure, there's the matter of Sutton disappearing, but there's also the return of a face from Ted (Andy Buckley) and Alec's (Adrian Pasdar) past that could reveal more secrets.
Charisma Carpenter -- you might've seen her recently on Supernatural, and you definitely remember her from Buffy and Angel -- is headed to the show as Rebecca "Annie" Sewell, Char's (Kirsten Prout) aunt who left Phoenix many years ago, and whose return will definitely ruffle some feathers. She recently talked to reporters about what to expect from Annie, including whether the fact that she looks very much like Alexandra Chando means anything -- could she be Sutton and Emma's actual parents? Highlights start in the next paragraph: »
Once Upon a Time Lands Dwarf Loving Amy Acker
There looks to be some fairy tale loving for a certain grumpy dwarf in an upcoming episode of Once Upon a Time, which will feature Angel and Dollhouse’s Amy Acker. The frequent Joss Whedon collaborator will guest star as a romantic interest for Lee Arenberg’s Leroy, who also happens to be the real-world counterpart for Grumpy, famously of the Seven Dwarves. Now, I’m not a stick in the mud for accuracy to the original fairy tales (and let’s face it, Disney heavily altered them anyway), but I don’t recall Grumpy having a sweetheart.
The way TVLine tells it Acker’s character will appear in both the fairy tale world and Storybrooke, but may only interact with one of Arenberg’s characters. More importantly, we have no idea who she might be playing. I’m all for a dwarf finding love, »

It looks like Joss Whedon’s The Avengers just might end up featuring a vampire! The highly-anticipated film is currently in post production, and the full credits have been released on IMDb. Nuke The Fridge noticed the inclusion of a vampire among the cast, which makes us wonder how a vampire fits into the story? Could Whedon be giving an amusing nod to Buffy the Vampire Slayer?
There has been some speculation that the vampire could actually be Marvel’s “The Living Vampire”, the anti-hero/villain Morbius. If this is true, does that mean that Morbius will be a ally or an adversary? Since the character will be showing up in the end credits, does that mean the character will appear in the likely sequel?

Grimm Season 1, Episode 7: “Let Your Hair Down”
Written by Sarah Goldfinger and Naren Shanka
Directed by Holly Dale
Airs Fridays at 9pm Et on NBC
Grimm is at its best when the writers use the fairytales on which the series is based as a jumping off point rather than a blueprint for the whole story. The weakest episode so far was “Danse Macabre” which attempted a too-literal interpretation of “The Pied Piper of Hamelin” and ended up giving us the slightly ridiculous spectacle of a man playing a violin to bunch of bemused looking rats – surprising, given that the writers of that particular rat’s nest were the originators »

Once Upon a Time has dipped into the Whedonverse yet again to fill a guest-starring role.
Amy Acker, who had roles on both Joss Whedon’s Angel and Dollhouse, will visit ABC’s fantastical freshman drama as a romantic interest for both Grumpy (of the Seven Dwarves) and his surly Storybrooke counterpart, Leroy, in a late winter episode that delves into the grouch’s backstory.

"How I Met Your Mother" star Alyson Hannigan is pregnant again. According to Us Weekly, her rep has confirmed what was very obvious in a recent photograph. Her daughter with "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" and "Angel" co-star Alexis Denisof is about to be a big sister.
The two, who met while filming "Buffy" have a 2-year-old daughter, Satyana. "Alyson is thrilled to be pregnant!" a source tells Us. "She's been wearing baggy clothes to cover the baby bump."
Alyson's character Lilly is pregnant on the show, so they won't have to strategically cover her belly with plants, signs or pots of stew.
In this weekend's "Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol," Jeremy Renner plays an overqualified Imf analyst; but it wasn't long ago that the Academy Award nominee was making his film debut as an underachieving student in the long-forgotten '90s comedy "National Lampoon's Senior Trip."
Renner's interest in acting blossomed relatively late, when the California native decided to pursue a double major in theater and psychology at Modesto Junior College. Shortly after graduation, Renner made his way to Los Angeles to parlay his passion into a career. His first opportunity came via the play "Search and Destroy," which earned him early buzz from critics. From there, Renner jumped into his first film role at the tender age of 24 with "Senior Trip."
In the critically reviled 1995 teen comedy, Renner costars as Mark "Dags" D'Agastino, a perpetually stoned, flannel-wearing high school senior who, along with his obnoxious classmates, heads to Washington D.C. »

The Screen Actors Guild has announced their list of nominations for the best performances of 2011. I have to point out that I'm surprised Tom Hardy and Joel Edgarton weren't nominated for their roles in Warrior, because they were pretty damn awesome in that film. I think they deserved a nom more than Leonardo DiCaprio. I'm a huge fan of DiCaprio but his performance in J. Edgar wasn't his best. Brad Pitt will end up taking home the award for Moneyball though. It was great to see Bridesmaids and The Help get a nomination for best ensemble cast. It will be interesting to see who takes home the award on this list, and how many of them will make their way to the Oscars.
Who would you like to see take home the award?
Here's the full press released with the list of Nominations:
