totally random

Am currently making my way through some old Firefly episodes. War stories, how I love thee.
But since at the moment all my thoughts lead back to SPN somehow, I had a thought about the Season 2 premiere and a possible casting choice.

very minor spoiler



Wouldn`t Morena Baccarin be a good candidate for the Tessa-role? Physical description of raven-haired beauty would fit IMO. Also it`d be kind of amusing since she and Jensen already played love interests in the failed still life. Small world and all.

She's been cast in Stargate SG-1 on a semi recurring role in season 10, but yes, she would have made an ideal Tessa.

Oh I guess that`s pretty much out of the question then. But it will be nice to see her around anyway.

ETA. War Stories is just totally awesome, one of the best eps they made, just loved all the characters and their interactions. Fantastic stuff.

Absolutely, the bonding between Mal and Wash - under torture no less, the stuff about River, loved it.
Right up there with Ariel (teaching Mal, Zoey and Jayne the medical lingo, hee) and Out of Gas (the flashbacks of how the crew got together are so great), it makes my favorite trio of episodes.

Is Morena Baccarin Inara? I'm so bad with names :p

Yup, she is Inara. I could imagine her as a Reaper. It would sure be nicer for Dean than the last one he encountered. :)

I haven`t seen the whole thing, just a few clips since I only have a dial-up connection anyway.
One clip had Morena and Jensen in it and they seemed to have chemistry.

*lol* Poor Morena. Seems like all her shows get cancelled, eh?

Yup, she is Inara. I could imagine her as a Reaper.

Yeah...she has this kind of deadly beauty seductive appearance, doesn't she?

Agreed, from space hooker to reaper - small step. :)

I`ve liked the actress in Firefly, hadn`t heard of her before. And she is really shy and self-conscious about her looks in real life too, so she can bond with Jensen over that. *g*

Definitely. Kind of like...oh dunno, Liz Hurley in Bedazzled? Or... *tries to think of better example*

Hadn't heard of her before. To be true, the only ones I knew were Walsh...or is it Wash? and Malcom ....after I read he was Caleb on Buffy *COUGH*

And she is really shy and self-conscious about her looks in real life too, so she can bond with Jensen over that. *g*


Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaw totally. They'd be all... dunno, talking bout philosophy or art probably :p

I didn`t know anyone apart from Adam Baldwin since I watched Firefly before Buffy Season 7.
But in hindsight I spot a lot of the actors in smaller pieces, Kaylee was in this Canadian show with Hayden Christensen, Wash was in a "Knight`s Tale" (and I never made the conncetion until later) and Mal was in some vampire movie.
Oh, and of course I recognized Summer Glau from her stint on Angel.

Do you have a favorite character/episode?

Summer? That's River? She was on Angel?

I immediately recognised Wash from A Knight's Tale...Go me! :p

Kaylee was in this Canadian show with Hayden Christensen

Higher Ground? That pathetic show? :p


By the way I was thinking, since they seem to love to recycle the Buffy cast so much, they could also cast Eliza Dushku as Tessa...

She played the ballerina in Waiting in the wings, the ballet ep. Was her first acting job, I think since she really is a ballerina.

Higher Ground? That pathetic show? :p

Yes, I only saw a few snippets. It also had Kandyse McClure who got to paw Jensen`s face in Dark Angel and Meghan Ory who was his love interest in the Alec woobie episode. This Canadian actor`s pool is somewhat limited, methinks. :)

By the way I was thinking, since they seem to love to recycle the Buffy cast so much, they could also cast Eliza Dushku as Tessa...

As much as I would hate for some Mary Sueish tough ass hunter chick to become a regular, I`d go for Eliza doing a guest stint as one. Could be a little shout out to Faith. Hell, it could be Faith. *g*

I've seen that one! Where Gunn bursts into tears? Yeah she looks like a ballerina...small, thin and flexible...


Higher Ground was actually on ProSieben last year...*snort* so it's like the British actor's pool, eh?

Hell, it could be Faith. *g*

OMG I think I'd die :p

Okay, I'm off now - downloaded the Stargate Season one pilot after all (I'll never learn that on BitComet you don't have to dl a WHOLE 7GB season at once but can choose which eps you want *headdesk*) and will watch it now :-) Tata!

If you give me a little bit, I can upload the pilot(I think, I don't know if there are any sites that allow files that big still:). I'll give it a try. :D
