Joss wants Summer for Dollhouse (Well, duh!)

Summer Glau

Mr. Whedon has told Michael Ausiello that he has been coveting Summer Glau for Dollhouse for some time. “If anybody thinks [bringing Summer onto Dollhouse] hasn’t occurred to me already then they have not met me,” he says. “I mentioned it to her before [SCC] was canceled. I was like, ‘You know, we should get you in the ‘house.’ But first we have to come up with something that works.” He went on to say, “Summer would be perfect to play an active, but she’s done that [type of role] a lot.” And, “I’d rather see her play someone who talks too much. The most fun I have is when I get somebody who’s good and comfortable at doing something, and then I make them do something else.” (Oh, Joss, you evil, evil thing, you.) And Summer has told Joss, “I would like to play a normal girl before I die of extreme old age.” LOL!

So, yeah, now that T:SCC has been given the ‘ol boot to the head, will we see our mei mei in the ‘house?

“Riikka” mentioned in the comments of the Ausiello piece that he/she would like to see Summer play twins. One on the outside, searching for the one on the inside. That would give Summer the opportunity to play her patented quiet crazy girl role we love so much while making with the talky talk as a nosey sister looking for her twin.

I’d say the best way to cast Summer in Dollhouse is to cast her in a dual role. Say there are identical twins; one has everything and a generally good life, while the other gets in way over her head and joins the Dollhouse. To her twin, it’s like she’s completely disappeared, and there are eventually mistakes where one is thought to be the other. When the non-active twin realises what’s been done to her sister, she also wants to take down the Dollhouse, perhaps even to the point of trading places with her sister to try and infiltrate the secret base.

So, what’s your dream role for Summer on Dollhouse?

Joss Comments on Buffy Reboot

http://ausiellofiles.ew.com/2009/05/a-joss-less-buf.html

The link above will take you to the full article about Joss Whedon’s comments about the previously reported Buffy movie.  Joss has not been approached to help with the film as far as we know.  Whedon’s comment: “I hope it’s cool.”  The author ponders the meaning of the four word comment and expresses outrage of the possibility of a Buffy film without Whedon being involved.  Sound off in the comments section!
