Sarah Michelle Gellar, appearing at a panel at Comic-Con in San Diego, showed that she’s also a fan of trashy reality TV, reports Buddy TV.
Gellar was at the confab pushing her highly anticipated new show, "Ringer," which will be on the CW this fall.
According to the article, "A typical question at Comic-Con panels is about what people the stars would dress up as, and while superheroes or comic book characters are usually the top choice, Gellar went in a completely different direction, wanting to dress up like one of the ‘Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.’ The fact that she embraces trashy reality TV like that just makes her even cooler."
The article also notes that "The producers were clear that when ‘Ringer’ moved from CBS to the CW, they weren’t going to change it. However, the one thing that might be different is that ‘Ringer’ can now use younger, hipper music for its soundtrack.
For those of you not familiar with the upcoming ‘Ringer," the article explains: "’Ringer’ features Gellar playing dual roles of twins Siobhan and Bridget. Siobhan is rich and successful, married to Andrew (Ioan Gruffudd) while having an affair with her best friend’s husband (Kristoffer Polaha). Bridget, on the other hand, is a recovering addict and former stripper on the run from some gangsters. When Siobhan goes missing while the two twins are on a boat ride, Bridget takes the opportunity to assume her sister’s identity."
Here’s a video preview of the show that was shown during the Comic-Con panel. We first ran across it on Michael Ausiello’s TVLine website:
