Felicia Day to Make Return Visit to ‘Supernatural’ | TV Equals


Eureka Mirror Mirror Season 5 Episode 11Felicia Day, the writer, producer and star of the long-running online series ‘The Guild’, will be making a return visit to the long-running CW series Supernatural, reprising her role of Charlie Bradbury, a computer whiz who all but inadvertently helped the Winchester brothers (Jensen Ackles and Jared Padalecki) get one step closer to taking down Leviathan leader Dick Roman (James Patrick Stuart) last season.

Now word comes from TV Line and Day’s own Twitter post that she will be making a reappearance on the sci-fi series. Here is what Day had to share on Twitter:

“What better place to be on Halloween than on the set of Supernatural”?

Charlie will show up in episode 11 of the current season of ‘Supernatural’ in an episode called “LARP and the Real Girl”. Does that mean that Charlie (aka Day) will help the brothers in a case involving role-playing? Sure sounds that way given the title, right?

Among Day’s other credits are ‘Buffy, the Vampire Slayer’ and ‘Eureka’ as well as the online sensation ‘Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog’, the online series ‘Dragon Age: Redemption’ and the made-for-TV movie ‘Red: Werewolf Hunter’. She also serves as host of the online podcast ‘The Flog’.

‘Supernatural’, which is now in its 8th season on The CW, will air its next new episode this Thursday, November 1 at 9/8c.

Where Are They Now? The Cast of Dollhouse ~ MovieHole.net


Eliza Dushku, Star of Joss Whedon’s Dollhouse

Fox took the batteries out of the “Dollhouse” a couple of years back. The series, a Joss Whedon created slice of peach pie with a delicious serve of Dushku sauce drizzled on its creative crust, produced and extended quite a few careers – least of all Whedon’s, who jumped from short-lived shows to big-time multiplex efforts like “The Avengers”.

In conjunction with the release of “Dollhouse : The Complete First Season” on DVD and Blu-ray down under today, we ask the question ‘So where are the cast of “Dollhouse” today?’ (And, for that matter, do they remember who they were before their most recently-assigned missions?)

Eliza Dushku (Echo) - in between doing guest spots on various TV shows (like “The Big Bang Theory”), the “Dollhouse” heroine has carved out a new career for herself as a voice-over artist. She recently voiced Catwoman in “Batman : Year One” and soon, lends her lungs to She-Hulk in “Hulk and the agents of S.M.A.S.H”. Last but not least, Dan Aykroyd’s said to be keen on the plucky brunette to play a Ghostbusters in “Ghostbusters 3″, when it goes before the cameras next year.

Harry Lennix (Boyd) – unlike the motivations of his career, Lennix’s career aspirations haven’t been cloaked in secrecy. Much like Dushku, Lennix seems intent on getting in on some superhero movie moolah – appearing as a general in next year’s “Man of Steel”.

Olivia Williams (Adelle) – The English Rose that runs the ‘Dollhouse’ already had a successful career – remember her from “Rushmore” and “The Sixth Sense”? – as a film actress.. She simply went back to it. Williams’ most recent film credits include “Hyde Park on the Hudson” and “Anna Karenina.” She is currently filming “Ten” with Arnold Schwarzenegger.

Fran Kranz (Topher) – Like “Dollhouse” guest star Amy Acker, Kranz continues to put food on the table thanks to Sir Whedon. He had a starring role in the surprise hit “Cabin in the Woods” earlier this year, and next forms part of the immense ensemble of Whedon’s micro-budgeted “Much Ado About Nothing”.

Tahmoh Penikett (Paul) – Tahmoh still hasn’t been able to snag a secure, regular gig the likes of which he has on both “Dollhouse” and also “Battlestar Galactica” – which he made his mark on just prior to arriving in Barbie-hub. Still, a mass of guest turns on TV shows like “The Killing” and “Castle” and a role in the upcoming “Man of Steel” (like Lennix), is definitely keeping him a stout focus on the Hollywood radar. Maybe there’s something for him in your new S.H.I.E.L.D TV series, Whedon?

Enver Gjokaj (Victor) – Its mostly been guest spots on the box for Enver since handing in membership to the “Dollhouse”, but a couple of minutes of screen time – playing a cop – in the recent “The Avengers” (hmmm.. Wonder how he got that job!?) should help snag a few more film roles in the near future.

Dichen Lachman (Sierra) – The former Aussie soap star (she was on “Neighbours”) cum Hollywood up-and-comer recently landed another regular TV gig, as part of the ensemble cast of “Last Resort”. It, like “Dollhouse” is a great show, encompassing terrific scripts, with a loyal niche audience… likely means it’ll be axed soon. Nothing like a regular pay cheque – if even fleetingly!

Miracle Laurie (Mellie) – The adorable actress (one of my personal favourites on “Dollhouse”) behind Paul’s object of affection has gone on to roles in films like “Wyatt Earp’s Revenge” and “Any Day Now”. Look out for her in more films, I’d say.

Reed Diamond (Laurence) – The not-so-impressionable Laurence may have left this world, but the man who gave him life definitely hasn’t. You can catch Diamond in such films as “Moneyball” and (Whedon’s) “Much Ado About Nothing”; he also did a handful of eps of “24″ in that show’s later days. Never not desired when you’re a Diamond.

Liza Lapira (Ivy) – One of the busiest of the cast, Lapira’s wages of late have been paid by the bean counters over on TV’s “Don’t Trust the B*tch in Apartment 23″ (of which she’s been in half-a-dozen or so episodes), as well as payroll over on such films as “Marmaduke” and “Crazy Stupid Love”.

Alan Tudyk (Alpha) – The show’s resident villain has transitioned into one of the most in-demand film stars this side of the three-breasted woman recruitment agency. Tudyk’s many credits since infiltrating the “Dollhouse” include “Abraham Lincoln : Vampire Hunter”, “Transformers : Dark of the Moon” and “Conception”, an acclaimed indy from director Josh Stolberg. Next up, Tudyk appears in “42″ with Harrison Ford and lends his lungs to the highly-anticipated “Wreck-it Ralph”.

Many others also passed through “Dollhouse”, including Alexis Denisof (“The Avengers”), Summer Glau (“Terminator : The Sarah Connor Chronicles”), Keith Carradine (“Cowboys & Aliens”), Mark Sheppard (“Supernatural”), Felicia Day (“Dr Horrible’s Sing-a-long Blog”) and Aisha Hinds (“Five”), and if the things in brackets after their names didn’t tip you off, all are still steadily employment and keeping their steady-temperature bodies busy.

The cast of Dollhouse

Thanks to Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment, we have an EXCLUSIVE clip from the “Dollhouse : The Complete First Season” DVD and Blu-ray (which includes a copy of a “Dollhouse” comic!); this clip involves Harry Lennix (as Boyd Langdon) entering the Dollhouse facilities for the first time and finding out exactly what it is he is letting himself in for.

Dr. Horrible’s Sing Along Blog Premieres (Again) Tonight! | Nuke The Fridge


Dr. Horrible’s Sing Along Blog Premieres (Again) Tonight!

Caliburn24 here with the best piece of television that was ever on television.

Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog! This was a web only series that was Joss Whedon’s experiment during the writer’s strike. You know, Joss Whedon, the director of a film called The Avengers? Yup, he tested the super hero waters first with Dr. Horrible. The series is around 7 minute long episodes. It stars NPH who of course is on weekly in How I Met Your Mother, his co-star, the very talented Felicia Day who creates The Guild web series for your viewing pleasure, Simon Helberg from Big Bang Theory (pre-BBT), and the always reliable Nathan Fillion, also on the series Castle (though we still remember him from Firefly). A formidable cast of acting talent on television or any other media.

Whedon of course shows his multifaceted talent in writing the musical episode of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, “Once More with Feeling.” Here he has the web confessional blog with Dr. Horrible, NPH, confiding in his viewers. He is trying to apply to the Evil League of Evil led by the supervillain Bad Horse. Meanwhile, he is pining for his sweet neighbor, Penny played by Felicia Day, who is an activist. He is busy inventing his new super weapon, a Freeze Ray. You will have the Freeze Ray song in your head all day.

Happy Birthday Joss Whedon!


Joss Whedon has made an indelible impact on our society. His creative mind and adventurous spirit has left us with many hours of entertainment.

Many of us are familiar with his work, the unmatched casting and creativity of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, the successful spin-off Angel, to name but two of his accomplishments.

The ill fated fan favorite, Firefly, just as popular today as it has ever been. The series Dollhouse starring the lovely & talented Eliza Dushku also gives us a peek inside this multi talented creative force.

And how could we forget his online hit, Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog boasting the likes of Neil Patrick Harris Felicia Day Nathan Fillion and Simon Helberg?

We rejoice in the knowledge that our favorite cult status hero has an upcoming director’s project on The Avengers. Joss has given us hours of entertainment, and we, the fans of his work would like to wish Joss the happiest of Birthdays!

Now, Numfar, do the dance of joy!

Thanks for everything Joss! Nyrhalahotep.

 

The Top 5 Male Characters Of The Whedonverse | via Daemon’s TV


 

 


The Top 5 Male Characters Of The Whedonverse | Daemon’s TV
.

I’m going to tell you all a secret. I’m a Whedon addict. It doesn’t matter what Joss does, doesn’t matter HOW he does it, I will always be front and center waiting for the premiere. I’m going to tell you another secret. I sort of lied in the sentence above. I have yet to watch Dollhouse. I know, I know, I know! It’s instantly streaming, so I will be partaking in it shortly, don’t fret.

To honor my love for Joss Whedon, I decided to put together a little article of the top five men in the Whedonverse. When I started this project I was thinking it would be a breeze. Oh how WRONG I was. And I mean wrong in bold, all caps, underlined and in italics.

How do you just pick five male characters out of all of the fantastic men that Joss has given us? I’ll tell you: You don’t. You can’t pick five, because there will always be someone left out. HOWEVER, for the sake of this article, I polled my Twitter feed, talked to fans… and then ended up throwing a few darts and came up with the following list.

Remember as you’re reading this: I could only pick five!

Onward!
