Joss Whedon On Casting 'Buffy The Vampire Slayer' Actors In 'Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D.'

Will the "Buffy The Vampire Slayer" cast invade "Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D." this fall?

"That's never crossed my mind," Whedon told HuffPost TV when asked if he would be populating "S.H.I.E.L.D." with "Buffy" players. "But now that you've said it, the idea was totally mine."

It wouldn't be a huge surprise if Whedon rounded up the gang: J. August Richards, who appeared on the "Buffy" spinoff "Angel," has already been cast in "S.H.I.E.L.D."

And 10 years after the "Buffy" series finale, fans haven't gone anywhere.

"I'm incredibly proud of that show -- proud of everybody on it, of what we did ... You can't be prouder of that show. It still holds up in reruns and I'm blessed every day ... I've been pretty lucky," "Buffy" star Sarah Michelle Gellar told The Huffington Post at the CBS 2013 upfront in New York.

"Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D." will air on Tuesdays at 8 p.m. ET this fall on ABC.
