    JM only has a cameo in this so it didn't feel like it should get its own thread but I thought I'd flag it up as they are looking for funding if anyone feels inclined...

Sure she still has that 90's Buffy glow, but her career pretty much crashed after a series of B movies and two failed TV shows. I'm sure that's why she has this new found appreciation for BtVS. That show really made her career into something legitimate and by the end of it, she completely dismissed it.

    James may work steadily in odd projects but that doesn't mean his career is super valid and successful. Part of having a career in Hollywood is your star power and your ability to draw viewers. In that sense, James is not able to carry a show on his own and he's not young anymore, either, which limits his job offers tremendously. I'm sure that if he could headline a TV show, like David, he would by now almost 10 years since Ats is off the air.
    Imo It depends how you qualify success. In this day and age where many actors struggle to get any paid work at all, I'd say anyone who's managing to get by is successful. JM may not have his own show, but he hasn't completely dropped out of sight since leaving BTVS and has made quite a few appearances on various TV shows as well as voice work and the odd movie.

    Yes, he's never going to make it big, but then the majority of actors never do.

    Talking of which...a familiar face and an even more familiar accent.

    Thought I'd bring post over from Tumblr, for if nothing else then to bury that spam post in the rest of the forum.

    From JM's Twitter account..

    I don't know the exact details, and maybe someone else may know more, but I got the sense that during Smallville, something happened to James' sister, and he was not able to relocate, because he had to raise his niece and his son. If there was a family crisis or tragedy, that could have altered his career choices.

    I'm afraid I never was familiar with all the details of that one.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VLKDGqGEcu4 Have Alyson Hannigan/Denisof and James Marsters ever been on a convention panel before?

    Conventions can be good money and it's always been bizarre that anyone not making over 6 or even 7 figures (in US dollars or similar) a year would try to belittle people who do conventions. With ticket prices, autograph and picture signings, etc., it seems someone like James Marsters, Eliza Dushku, Alyson Hannigan, etc. can make 5-figures and perhaps even 6-figures for one or a few days' work.

    Well, his IMDb page is back to listing BtVS, P.S. I Love You , Dragonball: Evolution , and AtS, as the things he's most known for.


    James Marsters seems to still be a regular on The Runaways . His

    not being in the last few episodes of season 1 I've always considered some kind of negotiating tactic for his compensation for season 2.

    I hate to break it to you love, but he's not a real vampire, JM ages like the rest of us. He's in the mid 50's now (56), and I think still looks good all things considering.

    I think he aged very well, and he is still as charming as ever.
    What a challenge, honesty
    What a struggle to learn to speak
    Who would've thought that pretending was easier

    LOL! I didn't say he hadn't aged well...just that - like all of us - he's aged.

    Well thats life love. Thats why i always keep an eye on actors I like as the longer you're away from seeing how they're getting on the more of a 'shock' you get as to how much they've changed.

    As an aside thats why I wish JM's role as Captain John Hart had continued, because imo it would have been the perfect role to allow him to age in full view of his audience and slowly get them to accept that he's not Spike anymore.

    It does hurt your heart, doesn't it? But that's life. I feel that he has aged very well. I just hope I'd age as well as him.

    I'm less concerned about him not looking like he did 20 years ago than I am myself! I can watch Buffy and forget he's aged - it doesn't work with a mirror! To add insult to injury, my hair used to be the colour his is now and it's now the colour his was then.

    Captain John's okay...Capt. Jack's a no-no for me!

    It's like finding out that the kid you baby sat for is married with two kids of her own. Of course part of you knew she would age but...somehow that makes you older than you were before you knew that. Reality checks sometimes come in the most awkward ways.
    Can we agree that the writers made everyone do and say everything with a thought to getting good ratings and being renewed. This includes everything we love as well as everything we hate.
