Neil Patrick Harris Loves Being One of Joss Whedon’s Players
"Oh, God, I wish I could say there was going to be a Dr. Horrible sequel, but I know there’s so many people involved in the creation of it that have a lot of other stuff going on right now," Neil Patrick Harris told Sci Fi Wire. "Mainly, Joss [is doing] Dollhouse, and he has another movie, Cabin in the Woods, that he’s doing at the same time. So I don’t know that anything would happen soon. But everyone has been super-enthusiastic about it, and I think that means that hopefully something will come."
Dr. Horrible just hit stores as a DVD after becoming one of the most talked about Internet sensations of the year, appearing on numerous Best Of lists. Harris, as the super-villain, recognizes that once you work with Whedon, you tend to get cast in his future projects.
After all, Dr. Horrible featured Firefly’s Nathan Fillion and Buffy the Vampire Slayer’s Felicia Day while Dollhouse was built around Buffy alum Eliza Dushku and now features Angel’s Amy Acker.
"Wow! Well, you know, I’m in CBS’ corner right now because of How I Met Your Mother, so I don’t know that I’d be able to, but I think [Dollhouse is] produced by 20th Century Fox, so, you know, they’re sort of cousins," he said. "That would be fun! All right. I’ll ask Joss! I like being a cousin in the Whedon family, so whatever he wants me to do. Except porn."
