The Crazy Ones News Gellar's Road To Her New Role

Posted on Aug 7, 2013 10:05pm

From HuffingtonPost.com: Sarah Michelle Gellar and Robin Williams are heading back to TV with CBS' "The Crazy Ones" this fall, and the former "Buffy" star apparently loved the role so much that she was prepared to take matters into her own hands to get it.

On a recent visit to Fox and Friends, Gellar admitted that she kind of stalked Robin Williams to express her interest in the part. "I happen to have known his best man at his wedding, so I tracked down his best man and said 'you might want to mention to Robin that I'm a big fan and very interested,' and that's sort of what got the ball rolling," she laughed.

The single-camera comedy series, executive produced by David E. Kelley, centers around Simon (Williams) and Sydney Roberts (Gellar), a dysfunctional father-daughter duo who run an advertising agency. Gellar had a shortlived return to TV with The CW's "Ringer" in 2011, but this will be Williams' first lead television role since "Mork and Mindy," which premiered in 1978.
