SETH GREEN TALKS SCOOBY
Yes, Seth Green (The Italian Job, which opens May 30th) is mystified as to why some people would think he had a fallout with Sarah Michelle Gellar after leaving Buffy. He says, 'There wasn't.' And if there's anything that supports this, it's the fact that they're currently making a movie together in Vancouver: Scooby-Doo 2.
'I get to work with my friends,' Green tells IGN FilmForce. 'It just seemed like a lot of fun. It's a good opportunity for me to do something completely different than I've done. It's a great cast, but more than anything it just seemed like a lot of fun.'
His time-commitment for Scooby-Doo 2, however, is far less than Scooby's pals, 'I work a total of 25 days out of their 4 months that they're shooting. So, there's not a lot of responsibility for me as an actor on this movie.'
As for his character, Green says, 'I'm playing a professor; a museum curator. I'm not any cartoon character. I don't have to live up to a design. I get to be this whole new character. The way I've been joking about it with my friends is I'm playing Batman or The Harlem Globetrotters. So, I'm like, 'Secret guest star: Don Knotts!''
In addition to working with Gellar again, Green admits, 'I've been wanting to work with Matthew Lillard for a while, and we got to do some scenes together. And it's a scene with Scooby-Doo! You know? Come on!'
