It seems like more than a decade ago (it was) that we last heard a Buffy the Vampire Slayer spinoff focused on Anthony Stewart Head’s Giles could be in the works, and now the actor has opened up about what could’ve been.
Let's face it, Santa has a pretty tough gig. All that jet lag and those nagging elves leaving cookie crumbs in the sleigh can elevate the big guy's blood pressure.
