Some sad news for TV. Some good news for films:
“Angel,” staring DAVID BOREANAZ as a vigilante vampire, has been axed. This season, the show’s fifth, will be the last for the WB series. “Angel” got its start in 1999 as a spin-off of “Buffy the Vampire Slayer.”
Ok, some of you may be wondering why I’m posting about a TV show here on The Movie Blog. Here’s why. Although I really enjoy Angel, and will miss the show very much, this could be a fantastic thing for David Boreanaz. Boreanaz is a solid actor who also has the physical attributes to be a legitimate Hollywood leading man. As a matter of fact, the rumor mill early last year was buzzing about him being the next Batman√¢‚Ç¨¬¶ that would have been cool to see. So, while I’m sad to see Angel leave the air, I think this will push Boreanaz out the door of television and force him to really pursue a big screen career. And I think he’ll succeed. Keep your eyes open for him next fall.
