Alexis Denisof: It's A Magic Kingdom, They Invite You Everyday

Posted: Updated:

Alexis Denisof has said he'd lay down his life for Joss Whedon, who put Alexis to work on "Buffy The Vampire Slayer," "Angel," "Dollhouse" and "The Avengers."  And it was on the set of "Buffy" that Alexis met Alyson Hannigan, who's now his wife and the mother of his two daughters.  Alexis joins Tony Potts (filling in for Steve Edwards) and Maria Sansone on Good Day LA.

Fun facts about Alexis:

  • His best known character, Wesley Wyndam-Pryce, was first introduced in 1999 to season 3 of Buffy the Vampire Slayer as Buffy's replacement Watcher.
  • Denisof was among 200 actors considered for the role of James Bond in Casino Royale, but lost out to Daniel Craig.
  • From there, he again reunited with Joss Whedon for two different projects. The first was a minor role in the summer blockbuster The Avengers as The Other, a servant to the character Thanos, and a cohort of Loki. The second was the lead male role in the remake of Shakespeare's classic Much Ado About Nothing which premiered at the Toronto Film Festival to a sold out theater and mostly positive reviews from fans and critics alike.

"Much Ado About Nothing" opens Friday.
