Life and Death
Today is a day of both good and bad news in the Whedonverse. Sadly, the fantastic Andy Hallett (Lorne on Angel... he also had a brief cameo in Buffy the Vampire Slayer's "Hush") passed away on March 29 of heart failure. I had the chance to meet him briefly in 2003 and he was kind, charming, and a truly lovely person. He will be missed immensely.
But there is also new life to celebrate today. Alyson Hannigan and Alexis Denisof are now the proud parents of a baby girl. Satyana Denisof was born on March 24, which also happens to be Alyson's birthday. Congratulation to them both!
Watch Dollhouse Tomorrow Night!
Just a reminder for everyone: Joss Whedon's new TV series, Dollhouse will be premiering on FOX tomorrow night (Friday, February 13th) at 9/8c. The series stars Buffy alum Eliza Dushku and looks to be another excellent show from our favorite TV series creator. To find out more, please visit the show's official website or read the description of the series from there:
Echo (Eliza Dushku) is an "Active," a member of a highly illegal and underground group of individuals who have had their personalities wiped clean so they can be imprinted with any number of new personas. Hired by the wealthy, powerful and connected, the Actives don't just perform their hired roles, they wholly become -- with mind, personality and physiology -- whomever the client wants or needs them to be. Whether imprinted to be a lover, an assassin, a corporate negotiator or a best friend, the Actives know no other life than the specific engagements they are in at that time.
Remember to watch the show tomorrow night on FOX at 9/8c!
Buffy Score Album on the way!
'Buffy,' The Score, Gets a Belated Release
Jeff Beck has cult, Beck Hansen has his and Christophe Beck obviously does too. How else to explain the Sept. 9 release of Beck's music cues from the "Buffy and the Vampire Slayer" TV show - five years after its last episode aired.
A New Joss Whedon Project on TV!
Eliza Dushku Lures Joss Whedon Back to TV!
Short of a Buffy the Vampire Slayer reunion movie, this is just about the best news you could ask for: Eliza Dushku and Joss Whedon are reteaming for a new series! (Told ya it would be worth tearing yourself away from the candy corn to drop by The Ausiello Report.) Here are the five things you have to know about the show, and I mean now.
Joss Interview at GeekMonthly.com
Part 1 - Embracing the Comics Life
Next month Dark Horse Comics is re-launching Buffy the Vampire Slayer in comics form, with Joss Whedon serving as "executive producer" and writer, along with a sterling number of fellow scenarists, among them writers for the live-action versions of both Buffy and Angel. This is the first of a several part interview with Joss, which begins with the reasons behind his becoming so involved with comics, having launched Astonishing X-Men, preparing to take over Runaways and, of course, returning to the Buffyverse that he created.
Part 2 - Hearing Voices
Part 3 - Season Eight
Part 4 - The Power of Buffy
Random Quotage:We have one more award to give out. Is Buffy Summers here tonight? Did she, um... This is actually a new category. First time ever. I guess there were a lot of write-in ballots, and, um, the prom committee asked me to read this. 'We're not good friends. Most of us never found the time to get to know you, but that doesn't mean we haven't noticed you. We don't talk about it much, but it's no secret that Sunnydale High isn't really like other high schools. A lot of weird stuff happens here. But, whenever there was a problem or something creepy happened, you seemed to show up and stop it. Most of the people here have been saved by you, or helped by you at one time or another. We're proud to say that the Class of '99 has the lowest mortality rate of any graduating class in Sunnydale history. And we know at least part of that is because of you. So the senior class, offers its thanks, and gives you, uh, this.' It's from all of us, and it has written here, 'Buffy Summers, Class Protector.'
