Heather Morris Poised to Take Lead Role in 'Buffy'


Heather Morris
The 'Glee' star is touted to replace Sarah Michelle Gellar in the movie version because she has perfect comedic timing and a gymnastic background.


"Glee" star Heather Morris has been tipped as the favorite to take over from Sarah Michelle Gellar as "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" in a new reboot. The longrunning TV series, which began as a 1992 film starring Kristy Swanson, is being re-imagined in a new big screen outing, with a new actress playing the cheerleader-turned-vampire hunter

And Morris, who portrays a cheerleader in Glee, is rumored to be first in the running to take the title role, according to Movieweb.com. An insider tells the website, "Heather Morris' comedic timing is a perfect fit for Buffy Summers, and that her background as a dancer and a gymnast will be greatly utilised (sic)..."

"In this new reboot, Buffy will no longer be in high school, but instead facing the same hardships that a lot of young college graduates have today in struggling to find a paying job and a healthy relationship. Though she plays a teenager on Glee, the 23 year-old-actress is actually the right age for this newly rebooted take on the character."
