Benson said that she and Busch envisioned an office comedy as done by the Coen brothers — and I think they succeeded.
In fact, if you sat through was released in February — her second featuring Calliope Reaper-Jones, the awesomely named character whose daddy happens to be Death.
In 2001, after a few turns in several obscure smaller films, among them the family drama "Magic Rock," Busch made his debut on the fifth season of "Buffy the Vampire Slayer." During his run, Busch's Warren actually killed the "Buffy" character Tara Maclay, who was played by Amber Benson, Busch's eventual real-life girlfriend.
In '04, Busch followed up his "Buffy" role by playing the lead, Steve Dixon, on Barry Levinson's short-lived crime drama "The Jury." Busch had another significant part, on Fox's single-season-long horror crime-thriller, "Point Pleasant," which was followed by a series of brief TV parts, and roles in another string of obscure films.
He spends a good part of the workday hanging out with his buddy Clark (Levine), who is an alien studying Earth to determine the optimal time for his planet to enslave humans.
Brian also has his eye on Amy (Bettis) who turns out to be an alien from yet another planet that is planning to destroy Earth. The sense of monotony that comes from corporate life is similar, but the humor is more geek than freak.
The two have since broken up but they have remained close friends.
I was shooting a scene in a TV show and I kept sneezing.Would love a movie, but it would have to include Cordy, Angel and Illyria. I can't believe how much I used to think Spike was hot, ugh he's so gross as himself.I'm surprised Charisma showed up to the reunion, considering how Joss treated her and her character. Alyson being a no-show isn't a surprise considering how much she hates SMG and Amber (SMG being photographed only with Seth and Michelle confirms the reports that they are the only two Buffy cast members who can stand her).Parking-lot-style traffic and very protective film festival volunteers (stinkin’ badges), kept me from speaking with Benson one-on-one, but thanks to a post-screening Q&A with Benson and co-director Busch, I can catch you up a bit on what she’s up to.Most of her time lately has been spent with Busch at film festivals, promoting is the story of Brian (Woodward), an office drone that has been at Omni Link for six years.
