Six Degrees of 'Buffy'-ration: Connecting Our Favorite Television Actors To The Slayer
Thanks to a comment from someone in one of the GoT threads, and a heads up from katie71483 in the Pajiba Facebook group, we now know that Pedro Pascal appeared on Buffy the Vampire Slayer. (If you are the knowledgeable commenter, clap your hands in the comments.) Upon researching the fact for myself (browsing IMDB when I was supposed to be working), I found that Buffy could easily serve as the new Kevin Bacon game. I will be using only television shows and names supplied by several Pajibans who had no idea why I needed them.
Charlie Hunnam is on Sons of Anarchy with Jeff Kober who played Rack/Zachary Kralik in four episodes of Buffy (1999-2002).
Amy Poehler was on Saturday Night Live with Tina Fey who was on 30 Rock with Peter Dinklage who is on Game of Thrones with Pedro Pascal who played Eddie in Buffy’s “The Freshman” (1999).
Kiefer Sutherland was on 24 with D.B. Woodside who played Principal Robin Wood in 14 episodes of Buffy (2002 - 2003).
Julia Louise-Dreyfus was on Arrested Development with David Cross who was in The Increasingly Poor Decisions of Todd Margaret with Amber Tamblyn (also his wife) who played Janice on Buffy episode “All the Way” (2001).
Neil Patrick Harris
Neil Patrick Harris was on How I Met Your Mother with Kal Penn who played Hunt in the “Beer Bad” episode of Buffy (1999).
Ruth Wilson was on Luthor with Idris Elba who was on The Wire with Pablo Schreiber who is on Orange Is The New Black with Michael Harney who played Xander’s Dad in “Restless” (2000). (I could only find a photo of Harney’s back, so enjoy this one instead!)
Kevin Bacon is on The Following with John Lafayette who was on Bones with David Boreanaz who played Angel on Buffy the Vampire Slayer.
