Globe and Mail - Oct. At least, the world of feature film. Based on the play by Vivienne Laxdal, These Girls follows the misadventures of three girls in a small New Brunswick town as they blackmail local knife-toting tough guy Keith Clark into having sex with them. Boreanaz plays Clark, a husband and new father who sets himself up for a physical and emotional beating by having a dalliance with the girls, who are -- in true to sex-farce-form -- his babysitters.
The shoot was in a small rural town, and Boreanaz said he felt depressed being away from his wife and child at the time. He wears a rosary blessed by the Pope around his neck and sports Chinese tattoos that translate into "soul" and "fate" on his wrists. He said he met his wife, Jaime Bergman, by noticing that she had the same tattoos in the same place.
Sleeping with three teenaged babysitters, even sexually voracious and manipulative teenaged babysitters, follows in Boreanaz's typical bad-boy characters. But in real life, the girls of These Girls said that he was every bit the gentleman. He even took them out for dinner and talked about how much he loved his wife before shooting the sex scenes.
Holly Lewis, who plays Lisa MacDougall, a Seventh Day Adventist who wants to lose her virginity before being shipped off to a religious college, portrays one of the most awkward first-time sex experiences on film. She said the comedy of the film eased any discomfort. Amanda Walsh, who plays Glory Lorraine, a character so naive as to inspire anger, said the comedy-of-errors style of the film would allow them to poke at traditional female stereotypes and sexual norms without drawing too much ire.
Walsh's character falls in love with Clark and deludes herself into believing that the two would have a future together. Meanwhile, Boreanaz hasn't given up the small screen completely. He's working on the drama series Bones for Fox, although he adds that the workload can be overwhelming. But he's also starred in two films, Mr.
Fix-it and The Hard Easy, which are currently in post-production. So why doesn't he want to talk about Buffy? I don't like to go back to the things that I've already done," he said.
