Joss Spills More Dollhouse Secrets! Plus: Is He Done with TV?
I want my own Eliza Dushku. Or at the very least, I may want to gift a favorite nephew with one for his birthday. But just how much does it cost to "hire" an "active" for an "engagement"? In this third slice of my sit-down with Joss Whedon, the creator of Fox's Dollhouse (Fridays at 9 pm/ET) reveals the approximate ballpark figure for Echo's oh-so-specialized services — shattering my own best guesstimate in the process.
Other topics covered in this video:
• Joss and Fox famously went back and forth on what Dollhouse is "about," scrapping and reshooting the pilot in the process. Which moment from the early episodes is truest to Whedon's vision?
• Does the original Dollhouse pilot still exist somewhere? Or are we seeing pieces of it in this week's episode, which offers a bit of an origin story for Harry Lennix's Boyd?
• And the biggie: Is it true that Whedon is done with network television, having gotten a taste of "freedom" with Dr. Horrible's Sing-A-Long Blog and his upcoming feature Cabin in the Woods? Get Joss' latest take.
