Most people of a certain age were at one time or another glued to a television between 1996 and 2007 watching either The O.C. or Buffy the Vampire Slayer. This weekend’s new Hallmark Channel movie Season for Love puts the spotlight on stars from each show: The O.C.’s Autumn Reeser (who played troubled Taylor Townsend) and Buffy’s Marc Blucas (the heroic Riley Finn). Many years have passed since both actors appeared in those roles (with both having numerous Hallmark credits) and it appears time has stopped for them. Still, the pairing is something others besides yours truly noticed. “A few people have commented on that,” laughed Reeser when we recently spoke. “I'm terrible though, because I didn't watch Buffy so I had no idea that Mark was on it. It wasn’t until a bunch of our crewmembers showed up with Team Riley t-shirts and I was like, ‘What is this?’ They were all, ‘You didn't watch Buffy?’ Apparently, I should have.
