Is Summer Glau Going to Play in Joss Whedon’s DOLLHOUSE?

dollhouse_summer_glau_01.jpgI stopped watching “Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles” after the first season not because I thought the show was bad, but simply because I didn’t really have time to fit it into my schedule and didn’t love it enough to make time.  Apparently, that was a mistake on my part because according to trusted friends, the show got ridiculously good in its second season.  And so, naturally, Fox made sure to cancel it.  The only benefit from this is that it may have freed up Summer Glau to jump over to the Friday night genre show that survived: Joss Whedon’s “Dollhouse” which finally started to find its way after a rocky start.

Talking to Michael Ausiello over at, Whedon says he’s already trying to come up with a part for her but NOT an Active. “I’d rather see her play someone who talks too much. The most fun I have is when I get somebody who’s good and comfortable at doing something, and then I make them do something else. Summer said to me, ‘I would like to play a normal girl before I die of extreme old age.'”  And it’s because Whedon realizes things like this is partially why we love him so much.  Hopefully we’ll get to see Summer playing a normal girl whenever “Dollhouse” begins its second season.
