Buffy casting rumor ... SWEET JESUS, NO!!! (Spoilerish))

TVTome is reporting that Caleb, the fallen preacher and nemesis(?) for the final five episodes of Buffy has been cast.

They say it's going to be Sisqo.

The ****ty R&B singer.

If this is true, then what the holy hell is it with all of the flash-in-the-pan r&b singers being stunt cast into Buffy this season?

I mean, Christ, it just seems like a cheap and desperate way to get your show mentioned on the MTV news.

And what is Sisqo? 22 or 23 years old? What kind of weight does a 23 year old fallen preacher have?

If they had to stunt cast, couldn't they at least cast someone cool like Bruce Campbell or Christopher Lee?

When you start casting people like Sisqo in your show, it's as good a time as any to call it quits.

It looks like it was a good idea afterall for SMG to get out now

I read that he was going to be on on one of the spoiler sites.
I hate stunt casting.
Ashanti was horrible. Lets hope he does better.

Talk about a way to cheapen the impact of your final season and make everyone ready for you to retire.

What kind of weight does a 23 year old fallen preacher have?
Last time I checked, Glory was a god and was in her '20s.

Ice T is now a somewhat respectable actor. When he was singing, there was no way I would have though that he could make it as an actor.

And of course Marky Mark (Mark Walhburg) is an actor.

Ice T and Mark Wahlberg did become decent actors, but that was after their music careers had more or less faded and they needed to pursue other avenues.
Sisqo, last I checked, is still primarily in music and should stay there for the time being. Having him in such a prominent role as this makes it seem like they are either forcing him upon the viewers for publicity, or intentionally trying to cheapen the shows end run, maybe both.

(I hope that I got this spoiler tag thing right, even though this information is 6 months out of date and I don't know if it would be considered a spoiler, I have never used the tag before so sorry if it didn't work)

This brings to mind something I read on the IMDB site in the late summer/early fall which all evidence has been removed: [spoi1er]Bill Murray was going to play some evil lord character.[/spoi1er] I know I saw it then and thought "oh this is going to be fun" but when I looked more recently (in the last 2 months or so) any mention of this actor was gone.

maiana,
you need to put a l instead of a 1 in spoiler

I never heard of the Bill Murray thing and Buffy is the only show I look for spoilers on so your not spoiling anything for anyone since odds are very good it's not true. IMDB is not a good source of info.

Sisqo has actually been in about 5 movies (Some of them not out yet), and a couple of tv appearences. And since he has only had about 1 or 2 cds come out, I would have to say he has more experience acting then singing.

thanks mr. x. I just copied exactly the tags on the spoiler thread and thought the 1 instead of the l was strange : )

Regarding Bill Murray on Buffy -- for a while there were a lot of "fake" guest appearances showing up on the imdb listings for Buffy. This is/was probably one of them. Adam Sandler was another one.

ok,first of all,everyone around here needs to get their facts straight, and im aggravated by this so im real bitchy right now, first of all.Rypro 525, u did not have to put the ashanti claim in, as josh-da-man clearly mentioned that they had been hiring r and b stars already this season. secondly, u guys need to get your black rappers straight before u open your mouths, ice t, in all his glory could be considered a decent actor, i guess if u call movies directed by snoop dogg and starring big pun as any good, u are thinkin of ice cube. this news pisses me off

At spoilerslayer at least, this rumor is one that's not taken too seriously. It could be true, but as of this morning it wasn't confirmed.

But they'd already used another actor as Xander's dad in "Hell's Bells" last season.

Have you not noticed what UPN's targeted audience is with shows like The Parkers, Abby and One on One. It was a tragedy when Buffy went from the WB to UPN.
