"Glee" star Heather Morris has been tipped as the favorite to take over from Sarah Michelle Gellar as Buffy the Vampire Slayer in a new reboot.

The longrunning TV series, which began as a 1992 film starring Kristy Swanson, is being re-imagined in a new big screen outing, with a new actress playing the cheerleader-turned-vampire hunter, and Morris, who portrays a cheerleader in "Glee," is rumored to be first in the running to take the title role, according to Movieweb.com.

An insider tells the website, "Heather Morris' comedic timing is a perfect fit for Buffy Summers, and that her background as a dancer and a gymnast will be greatly utilized…

"In this new reboot, Buffy will no longer be in high school, but instead facing the same hardships that a lot of young college graduates have today in struggling to find a paying job and a healthy relationship. Though she plays a teenager on Glee, the 23 year-old-actress is actually the right age for this newly rebooted take on the character."

Do you think Heather would make a good Buffy?
