Gwyneth Paltrow Loves Buffy's Ex!

Forever 29? Fuhgetaboutit! Since turning 30 in January, things have never been sweeter for Marc Blucas who played the Slayer's ex-boyfriend, Riley Finn, on Buffy the Vampire Slayer.

"Everyone says that the 30s are the best years of your life," Blucas tells TV Guide Online, "and so far, I have to agree... I can speak to the fact that every year of my life has gotten better, and if that holds true my whole life, then I'm in for a fun ride and I hope to live to be about 250!"

What's he so damn perky about? Well, his post-Buffy acting career hasn't bitten the dust like those undead baddies he used to stomp. Next month, We Were Soldiers his war movie with Mel Gibson arrives on DVD. And come January, he'll co-star with Gwyneth Paltrow in her flight-attendant comedy, A View from the Top. "I play her high school boyfriend and we revisit 10 years later, after I have a wife and kids," he previews. "She is so talented. She has a gold statue for a reason."

Was it scary to act opposite a bonafide Oscar winner? "[She's] extremely easy to work with," Blucas says. "I've been dunked on by [basketball pro] Grant Hill I'm not going to be intimidated by a 5-foot-9 girl." (We guess after surviving Buffy, it takes a whole lot of girl power to throw him!)

He's got more big-screen romance in the upcoming BBC film, I Capture The Castle, co-starring E.T.'s Henry Thomas. (It's from David Parfitt, who produced Shakespeare in Love.) "We play brothers [who] inherit a castle," Blucas explains, "and everybody falls in love with the wrong person."
