Monday's official announcement that Buffy the Vampire Slayer's reformed vamp James Marsters (Spike) would be crossing over to Angel full time next season must have caught exec producer Joss Whedon by surprise. I spoke to Whedon on Thursday and asked him point-blank whether Marsters would be an Angel regular next season should the WB pick up the drama. His unequivocal response? "We have made no decision about that at all." So, either Whedon is A) way out of the loop, B) a big fat liar, or C) rich and indifferent. What do you think?
