Today’s cuppa: iced tea with peppermint

I have a full post coming up either tonight or tomorrow with Bret Baier of Fox News, talking about his plans for covering the Inaugural on Tuesday. But in the meantime, I’m finishing up a feature article on Fox’s upcoming "Dollhouse" series and came across this little story while transcribing an interview with star Eliza Dushku.

Before "Dollhouse," created by Joss Whedon, Dushku played the vampire slayer Faith on both Whedon’s "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" and its spin-off, "Angel," which starred "Bones" lead David Boreanaz as a vampire with a soul.


"I still, to this day, remember my first kissing scene. It was on ‘Buffy,’ and it was with David Boreanaz. We were doing this kissing scene, and he was in vampire face. I’m straddling him, on top of him, and we were doing the kissing scene.

"The first take, I went, ‘Can we take his vampire teeth out? Because, they are literally piercing my tongue as we’re kissing.’ Everybody was kind of silent and went, ‘Wow, you’re really using the tongue, right?’ I went, ‘Uh, OK, all right. I’m a method actor.’"

Makes you wonder what has transpired during the filming of "Dollhouse," because I wouldn’t be surprised if Dushku’s character, Echo, locks lips with Tamoh Penikett’s character, FBI Agent Paul Ballard. Maybe one day we’ll find out.
