Joss Whedon, creator of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, is currently working on a spin-off series called Ripper for the BBC. The new show will follow Giles as he comes out of retirement to solve mysteries in England. Joss thinks that Dreamboat Pete Doherty will be perfect for the role of a zombie.
He said, “Pete seemed the obvious choice, with his love of the macabre. The blood paintings and the self-styled night creature existence are perfect.
"It’s thought he’ll play an approximation of his real-life persona; the zombie remnants of a rock star and poet unable to rest and therefore haunting London. With grisly results, of course.”
The make-up people will have their work cut out for themselves. Pete Doherty looks worse than a damn zombie. They will have to make him over to look at least dead alive, because bitch looks straight up dead!
