Charisma Carpenter Throws CSI a Panty Party

Posted by Admin on April 10th, 2009 under Angel, News, The Expendables, TV Guest Appearances  •  1 Comment

This Thursday on CSI (9pm/ET, CBS), Buffyverse alumna Charisma Carpenter gets caught in the middle of a deadly love/lust triangle when a skydiver takes the plunge — and not in a matrimonial sort of way. Carpenter shared a peek at her guest-star turn — “panty party” merriment and all — and previewed her upcoming big-screen role opposite Jason Statham and other action heavyweights. She also talked about the sudden passing of Angel costar Andy Hallet. What can you reveal about your episode of CSI? Who are you playing, what are you doing?
Charisma Carpenter: I play a slinky little character named Mink, who is a suspect in the murder of her boyfriend because there was a love triangle between her and another sexy little thing played by The L Word‘s Erin Daniels. In the promos, it looks like there’s some debate over whose boyfriend the deceased was.
Carpenter: Well, he was both of ours. So there was tension, because we were both vying for his affections and such. You know how competitive that can be. I mean, the three of them were even sharing a trailer! Would you take offense if I go out on a limb here and say that you offed the guy?
Carpenter: Hey now! Why is everyone always picking on me? “Sources” tell me there is a “panty party” in this episode. Is it like a Tupperware party?
Carpenter: [Laughs] No, not at all. It involves dancing around half-dressed in our little Winnebago.

Charisma Brings CSI a Touch of Mink

Posted by Admin on April 9th, 2009 under TV Guest Appearances  •  No Comments

It would appear that CSI has fallen hard for Charisma Carpenter — and vice versa.

The brunette beauty has been booked for a guest-starring appearance on the hit CBS procedural, has learned exclusively.

Carpenter will play a skydiver named Mink in the episode “Descent of Man,” airing later this season. Sources describe Carpenter’s turn as both “fun and memorable.” Not unlike the actress herself.

While virtually all other Buffyverse alumni have kept busy this TV season with guest gigs on Private Practice and Dollhouse, Carpenter has filled her dance card with roles in the Sci Fi Channel original movie House of Bones (premiering sometime this year) and, most recently, the indie film Vivid (helmed by up-and-coming writer-director Reg Traviss).

The Expendables train has been chugging full steam ahead ever since it was first announced. We’ve had plenty of casting news which has left us with a group (a group that, perhaps, may still grow) of some kick-ass icons of action movies past and present.

In addition to Sylvester Stallone (who’s also writing and directing the film), we have Mickey Rourke, Dolph Lundgren, Jet Li, Jason Statham, Randy Couture, “Stone Cold” Steve Austin, Arnold Schwarzenegger (if only in a cameo appearance) Eric Roberts and Danny Trejo. While adding some Oscar-winning power and beauty to the film is Forest Whitaker and Charisma Carpenter, respectively.

Now with all this news coming out about the film, one thing which you would understandably want to know is just when is it coming out? Well the wait is finally over.

The Expendables has a release date of April 23rd 2010.

Charisma to Return to Greek?

Posted by Admin on April 9th, 2009 under TV Guest Appearances  •  No Comments

I’m hoping we haven’t seen the last of Tegan. Any word on Charisma Carpenter returning to Greek? -Rachel
We won’t see Charisma in this batch of episodes, but that doesn’t mean she’s done with the show. There’s always next cycle. We will, however, meet a few other ZBZ alums, including Frannie’s big sis who comes back to CRU for her wedding — Sean said she’s hysterical — and another former sister who will catch the eye of two of Greek‘s main characters… the two I was just talking about.

Rest in peace, Andy Hallett. He will be forever remembered for his fantastic portrayal of Lorne on Angel.

Andy Hallett, who played suave demon Lorne on Angel, has died after a five-year battle with heart disease, according to his agent. He was 33.

The actor died of heart failure at Cedars Sinai Medical Center Monday, Hallett’s agent and friend Pat Brady told E! Online. Hallett’s father, Dave, was by his side when he died.

Hallett was from the Cape Cod village of Osterville, Mass., and appeared in more than 70 episodes of the Buffy the Vampire Slayer spin-off Angel as Lorne, a friendly demon who hosted and performed karaoke at a demon bar. Angel castmate Charisma Carpenter tells, “Andy was a beacon of love and laughter.”
