‘Dollhouse’ provides employment for Whedon regulars Glau and Denisof
In a recession, you do a mitzvah find work for your friends and people you’ve worked with before. No one follows that maxim more nowadays than Joss Whedon.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Whedon’s Dollhouse added five new cast members: Summer Glau (Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles and Firefly/Serenity) as Bennett, a Dollhouse employee who shares a past with character Echo (Eliza Dushku); and Alexis Denisof (Angel) is a US Senator heading a witch hunt to track the hidden organization. Also joining up are Battlestar Galatica veterans Jamie Bamber, who will play a charming businessman and husband to Echo; and Michael Hogan joins the cast hoping to stop a killing rampage.
We also understand that Keith Carradine (Dexter) becomes an arch rival of Dollhouse leader Adelle, but we can’t figure out what role he played on Buffy the Vampire Slaye— oh! He must have been one of the Gentlemen from “Hush”.
