Another great guest is Erin Gray (Col. Wilma Deering from Buck
Rogers). Not only is she still gorgeous, but she's a lot of fun to
talk to and just a pleasant person all around. On top of that, she
actually handles the bookings for a lot of other talent - I know she

(Herbert Jefferson, Jr. - Boomer from the original BSG is handled by
Any of the Buffy people would be good, too. I wonder if any of the
