Drew Goddard gives his thoughts on a possible Spike Spin-off in this issue of Buffy Magazine. Link leads to Titan Magazines Homepage. The Information can be seen by clicking on 'More' where you will find the relevant part of the interview.
Drew was talking about aspects of his Buffy life, Angel and writing episodes like "Selfless", "Dirty Girls" and more specifically, "Never Leave Me". This was when the conversation got onto Spike, his character and his journey through the shows. The interview then got onto whether Spike could carry his own spin-off. This is what Drew said:
"He is so great. As a person James is so great and as an actor there is no one I've ever met that is better. He can just do anything.
The tricky thing we were finding is how do you make that spin-off different from 'Angel'. They are very different characters but in terms of making a show.... 'Buffy' and 'Angel' are very different shows. You wouldn't want 'Angel' and 'Spike' to be the same show. I always like Spike better when he isnt the star. I like it when he is the guy making fun of the star.
That being said, if they said "Drew we are doing a Spike show", they would have to kill me not to be involved. I would be camping on Whedon's doorstep!"
And come on what a nice guy is Drew Goddard!
Credit must go to the Buffy Magazine, the author of the article Tara Di Lullo (TaraDi if you're on, maybe...Buffy Animated update pleeeeaaaaassssseeeee!) and of course Drew himself!
