kris polaha getty Kris Polaha cast opposite Sarah Michelle Gellar in CBS' 'Ringer' pilotLife has to go on for Kris Polaha after “Life Unexpected”… and what better way to move on than being cast as Sarah Michelle Gellar’s love interest?

Polaha will star opposite SMG in the CBS pilot “Ringer,”  reports TV Line. Yes, you read that right. Baze and Buffy. Together. It’s almost too much for our little TV lovin’ hearts to bear.

Now, we need you readers to put on your thinking caps because the show’s premise is a bit confusing. Gellar will play two characters, twins named Bridget and Siobhan. Bridget is on the run from the mob and inhabits her wealthy sister Siobhan’s life after Siobhan’s death. Turns out (as it so often does) that her twin sister also has a price on her head.

Polaha’s part in all this awesome madness? He’ll be playing the out-of-work husband of Siobhan’s best friend (Tara Summers) who is having an affair with Siobhan. He is confused and hurt by her behavior after Bridget takes over Siobhan’s identity (he obviously doesn’t know this) and tells her she must choose between him and her husband (Ioan Gruffudd).

What do you think of Polaha’s new role, Zappers? We won’t lie, we may have jumped up and down in the Zap2it offices when we heard the news.
