Eliza Dushku to Guest Star on 'White Collar'

by Catherine Lawson, posted Jun 1st 2011 7:35AM
Eliza DushkuThe 'Dollhouse' may be closed for business, but its star Eliza Dushku is as busy as ever. It's been reported that she will guest star on an upcoming episode of 'White Collar' and, that if all goes well, she could be back for more.

'White Collar' creator Jeff Eastin told 'The Hollywood Reporter' that Dushku will appear in the ninth episode of Season 3. Her character will be working for Matthew Keller (Ross McCall) and will be "obviously very sexy," said Eastin.

He added that, if things go his way, Dushku's appearance may not be a one-off. "We did it in such a way that if it works out, we could bring her back," Eastin revealed.

Yesterday was the last day of Women's History Month, bringing to an end AOL TV's month-long celebration of Women on TV.

We've had tribute lists and graphics, but we wanted to go out with a bang: a mashup! What better way to salute some of the most iconic and powerful woman in television history than with a video of them in action?

Below you'll find one awesome video -- if we do say so ourselves -- of fierce females in action. There's plenty of canceled Joss Whedon goodness and soapy slaps to satisfy everybody.

Eliza Dushku Reflects on 'Dollhouse' and Tackling Comedy

by Kelly Woo, posted Oct 25th 2010 12:55PM
Eliza DushkuEliza Dushku has kicked many, many butts over the years on 'Buffy the Vampire Slayer,' 'Angel' and 'Dollhouse.'

Now, the actress is ready for a different challenge: making people laugh their butts off.

Dushku called TV Squad to dish about her future plans, which include getting back into comedy (first stop on the laugh tour: 'The Big Bang Theory'), and which 'Dancing With the Stars' celebs are the biggest competition for boyfriend Rick Fox.

Plus, we spoke about her satisfaction with the end of 'Dollhouse' (season 2 now on DVD and Blu-ray) and whether she'll ever work with creator Joss Whedon again.

J.J. Abrams and Joss Whedon at Comic-Con: 'Avengers,' 'Dr. Horrible,' 'Undercovers' Updates

by Laura Prudom, posted Jul 22nd 2010 10:00PM
JJ Abrams and Joss WhedonJ.J and Joss ... sounds like one hell of a team, doesn't it?

The two "Visionaries," as labeled by Entertainment Weekly, came together for one geektastic Comic-Con panel Thursday. And the creators of 'Lost,' 'Buffy,' 'Alias,' 'Firefly' and the 'Star Trek' movie only disappointed the hall full of fans in one way -- they sadly aren't collaborating on a project. (Yet.)

Whedon confirmed what has been long suspected -- that he's directing 'The Avengers' movie with Marvel. It's too soon for much info, he said. He's still writing an outline and thoroughly researching the comics, but was enthusiastic about the movie's development. "These people shouldn't even be in the same room together, let alone on a team; isn't that the definition of family?" he reasoned wryly.

Meanwhile, Abrams talked about his new show 'Undercovers,' which will be both "case of the week" and serialized. He also revealed a few (very sparse) tidbits about his upcoming movie 'Super 8,' which is being produced by Steven Spielberg. The movie hasn't begun shooting and may feature an interactive element. Abrams cryptically said, "My favorite thing about the movie is that someone will go to the theater and see the trailer and hopefully go, oh my God, that looks bitchin', and have no idea they will be starring in it." What could he mean?

Whedon also discussed the prospects for future editions of 'Dr. Horrible,' saying he needed to find time to get the whole gang back together as well as find a studio to finance it. But some songs have been written, and Whedon referred to the project as "the movie," which may give a hint to the project's ultimate scope.

Happy Birthday, Joss Whedon! Our Favorite Whedon-y Moments

by Brad Trechak, posted Jun 23rd 2010 10:00PM
Joss WhedonAll hail the great and powerful Joss. All hail his mighty pen that doth slay vampires, galactic empires, super-villains and evil corporate conglomerates alike. Verily he is a most excellent wizard of the pen and camera.

Seriously, today is Joss Whedon's birthday (just don't ask his age. OK, he's 46) and to celebrate in a 'Buffy'-'Angel'-'Firefly'-'Dr. Horrible'-'Dollhouse' sort of way, there will be video of our favorite moments from each sample of the Whedon collection.

In the interest of being off-beat (which is as good a tribute to the maestro himself as anything), I will list the examples in reverse-chronological order from their initial debut. Also, since this is a television blog, I'm restricting the example to his television efforts. I'm also adding 'Dr. Horrible,' because it was so cool.

Creators of 'Reaper' Reveal How the Show Would Have Ended

by Brad Trechak, posted Feb 2nd 2010 11:32AM
ReaperIn an interview, series creators Michele Fazekas and Tara Butters reveal how they would have ended the series 'Reaper' had it continued to its conclusion (however many seasons that would have taken). You can read the original article for the actual revelation. I simply want to add a non-spoiler point or two.

Fazekas and Butters have worked with Joss Whedon on 'Dollhouse' and are obviously fans of his, so why not go the 'Buffy' Season 9 route and turn future seasons of 'Reaper' into comic books? It would certainly translate well given the fantasy nature of the show. To reveal the end for the show in an interview, while appreciated by fans, does not seem an economically wise move.

Of course, there is still a great deal that the creators have not revealed. For example, why did Steve prevent Sam from getting out of the contract? And how, if ever, did Andi get out of her agreement with the Devil? There could be a 'Reaper, Season 3' graphic novel yet.

'Dollhouse' Finale: Paul Ballard Dies, World Gets Reset (VIDEO)

by Jane Boursaw, posted Feb 1st 2010 5:45AM
Dollhouse: Series FinaleIn his review over at TV Squad, Brad Trechak called the series finale of Joss Whedon's 'Dollhouse' (Fri., 8PM ET on Fox) "weird" and "rushed."

"Overall, the series wasn't as good as his previous attempts, but still much better than 99% of the other crap on television," writes Trechak.

It's too bad that the series was canceled before it really had a chance to gain some steam. Sometimes Whedon's projects do take a bit of time to gain traction with viewers. What did you think of the series finale of 'Dollhouse'?

Review: Dollhouse - Epitaph Two (series finale)

by Brad Trechak, posted Jan 30th 2010 12:15AM
Dollhouse(S02E13) What words can be used to describe Joss Whedon's latest complete series on television? "Weird" is one. "Rushed" is another.

Granted, the show only had slightly more than a full season's worth of episodes to establish itself (26 in all), but Dollhouse never really felt like something Joss really cogitated on and imagined from the bottom of his soul and thought through every detail. The series felt more like a favor he was doing for Eliza Dushku to prevent her from being typecast as a tough chick, with some clever bits thrown in.

Overall, the series wasn't as good as his previous attempts, but still much better than 99% of the other crap on television. Major spoilers follow after the jump.

What to Watch: January 29

'Dollhouse' (8PM, Fox) series finale
It's 2020 and the world is in chaos -- chaos! -- as Joss Whedon's first post-'Buffy' series comes to a close. The global population is running amuck and is, in fact, on the brink of extinction since Rossum lost control of the imprinting technology. It's up to Echo and her cohorts to, literally, try to save the world, though, sadly, no matter how spectacular their efforts prove to be, it's too little, too late to save the series from two seasons worth of lackluster ratings.

Dollhouse - Friday January 22, 8 pm, Global/Fox


EDITOR'S NOTE: The 'Dollhouse' finale has been postponed to January 29th. The Haiti fundraising telethon will air in its place.

While most TV viewers are excited about the new shows starting up, Joss Whedon fans are taking it on the chin again as 'Dollhouse' comes to a close. But there are some signs the show may live on, as 'Buffy' and 'Angel' did before it, in the world of comic books. At the very least, fans can tease themselves with trips to a couple of viral websites where Echo's world lives on. Check out the site for the Rossum Corporation, a rebel Ditch the Tech site, the issues-driven Not A Doll site and of course, get all the updates at Joss-central - Whedonesque.com.

Review: Dollhouse - The Hollow Men

by Brad Trechak, posted Jan 16th 2010 2:30AM
Dollhouse(S02E12) The problem with prequels (and with regards to Dollhouse, I consider everything that happened before "Epitaph One" and "Epitaph Two" a prequel) is that you know how things are going to turn out. This somewhat ruins any sense of surprise one might get from any revelations of the program.

Granted, it was a decent stopping point for the show. All the dangling plot-lines were resolved and if we weren't aware of the two "Epitaph" episodes, we'd all drink our collective Slurpees and let out a sigh of relief knowing that Dollhouse ended on an emotionally satisfying note.

TWO WEEKS until the next episode? Come on, Fox. What's up with that?

Review: Dollhouse - Getting Closer

by Brad Trechak, posted Jan 9th 2010 3:15AM
Dollhouse(S02E11) This was an episode that went from zero to sixty in under a second. So much was thrown at the viewer in both backstory and current happenings that everybody watching was suffering from dizziness and possibly nausea. But it was the good kind of nausea.

It's a fair bet that this episode and the subsequent ones were written (or re-written) after learning that the series wouldn't be renewed. Alternatively, perhaps Joss saw the signs in advance having worked in television for so long. After the jump, the real spoilers of the episode will be discussed. Those who wish to remain unspoiled can move along.

Rick Fox to Guest on 'Dollhouse'

by Rebecca Paiement, posted Dec 23rd 2009 10:45AM
Joss Whedon's 'Dollhouse' may be on the way out but it's not going quietly. The Ausiello Files tells us that hoops legend turned actor Rick Fox has signed on for a little cameo opposite real life girlfriend Eliza Dushku.

Fox will appear briefly as an Active in the Jan. 8 episode where he will be granted back his original personality and emerge from the sci-fi show's famous imprint chair. And, as a bit of a spoiler, we can also reveal that he and other Dolls are then released back out into the world.
