Joss Whedon on the future of Dollhouse. Sort of.

dollhouseThis cracked me up today.  These two articles are based on the same exact remarks given by Joss Whedon at the recent Paley Festival in regards to the future of his series Dollhouse (which, incidentally, just got badassedly entertaining about three episodes ago).

LA Times:
Joss Whedon: Chances of a ‘Dollhouse’ renewal are ‘not very good’

Joss Whedon tells Paley Fest fans that ‘Dollhouse’ season 2 is a total possibility

God bless the American media.  They sure keep things interesting.  (p.s. Thanks to Alisa for bringing the LA Times version to my attention!)

In other recent Boyfriend-related news, Josh Holloway just became a father.  And Mark Ruffalo is going to be starring in the upcoming movie version of the awesome Dennis Lehane novel Shutter Island, which I read for the first time a few years ago and loved, and am in the process of rereading right now.  Great story, AND the movie version will be directed by Martin Scorcese and costar Leonardo Dicaprio and Ben Kingsley.  Sign me up!

Anybody else have any Boyfriends in the News news to report?  Hit the comments, yo!

    I completely agree, the last 3-4 episodes of Dollhouse have been fantastic; far better than the first 5 episodes which reportedly where largely directed by FOX execs. I think the show gets better each week, my only concern is the longevity of the idea. However, if there is one person who can keep an idea like this wildly entertaining in the long run, it is Joss.

    Boy, am I glad to hear you say you see “Dollhouse” improving. My husband and I definitely agree. We’ve been hanging in there, and it sure seems that the show is starting to come into its own. Explanations are starting to make sense, and the whole vaguely NEFARIOUS nature of the thing is being addressed. Plus, there’s the question of: are there memories so painful that it’s actually merciful to erase them, or is that ultimately robbing us of valid parts of ourselves? No one can handle moral ambiguity better than Joss Whedon – and those seemingly mutually exclusive news article quotes – don’t they just play into the whole thing?

    No boyfriend news, but I have to jump in and say that last week’s episode of Dollhouse was beyond amazing.

    BOYFRIEND NEWS – DANIEL CRAIG: Last week I saw “Moll Flanders” on a Masterpiece Theatre DVD. I think it was from 1996; it starred Alex Kingston (whom I’d only ever seen on “ER”) as “Moll,” and she was EXCELLENT! It also featured Daniel Craig, in a role I had hoped would be bigger, but he was good, never-the-less. He was also brilliant (IMHO) in “Infamous” – the “other” Truman Capote movie, starring Toby Jones. Craig played the murderer who basically had a relationship with Capote – and was stunning.
